Thank you so much for everything! We had the most extraordinary time. I absolutely loved everyone on our crew. Raymond and Dastin were truly amazing guides. They went above and beyond for us at all times, even holding my hand down the snowy steep trails. I felt safe every step of the way during this journey. And Simon is the most amazing cook, we had the best food on the mountain. Everyone was so much fun and full of energy, they made us feel like family. I’m constantly recommending you guys and my crew to anyone who asks. I am forever grateful for this incredible journey I was able to complete and will cherish the memories for the rest of my life.
I will be creating a vlog video with my entire journey. Once that link is created, I will also send it to you and post it. I have attached a few pictures below as well.
I’ve been meaning to drop you a note for a couple of weeks now that I’m back from Africa. FIrst off, I want to thank you for all of your patient help in preparing for Kilimanjaro. I never felt like there was something I was missing as far as information goes.
From the moment I was picked up at the airport until drop off, the team in Tanzania was just excellent. Dina was so great to work with and all of the other staff members at the lodge were so helpful and friendly.
Our guide, Seraphin, and his assistants Mike & Earnest, were always attentive and watching to make sure we were healthy and strong. We did have one person who suffered from altitude sickness/dehydration when crossing Lava Tower Camp, but Seraphin was right there with her and she recovered the next day and was able to summit successfully.
The food was good and the chef (Pancake is what everybody called him) was always asking if everything was good and if we wanted anything else. He did adjust a bit to add some more protein to our diet after the second day which was helpful!
The equipment was good – sleeping tents were good quality and held up well, toilet was MUCH better than using the camp toilets!
I have recommended you to several people I’ve talked to about my trip and hope they are able to climb Kilimanjaro with you one day. I also saw Michael Kirungi when I was in Uganda and gave him a debrief on my experience – he was pleased that everything went so well. I did suggest that he take the trip one day himself so he has firsthand experience of what he’s recommending.
Again, thank you for everything – it was really the trip of a lifetime.
The Climb Kili organization as a whole were amazing from first inquiry to summit. They truly go above and beyond to make this a once in a lifetime experience for all of its guests.
The hotel at summit lodge was very comfortable and has a nice pool. The staff here were fantastic. So friendly and welcoming. They always did whatever they could to make your stay comfortable. It was a nice home away from home.
We climbed the 7 Day Machame Route. The route itself was beautiful. I loved the change in scenery each day. Our guides, Manny, Johnny and Steve were GREAT! Upbeat, positive and encouraging the entire time. Their goal was to get us all to the top SAFELY and they did just that! Manny was very attentive and aware of what was happening with each of us and made sure we were all looked after properly.
Where do I start with the porters. Superhuman and amazing! They’re job is so hard and challenging but they do it everyday with a smile and positive attitude. They work so hard to make the climb seamless and effortless for you.
We truly couldn’t have done this trip without our fantastic team of guides and porters!!!
We also did a 3 day safari with a flight into the Serengeti. So awesome!
When we’re arrived at the airport in the Serengeti we were greeted by our guide, Victor. We were so lucky to have him as our guide. He is the kindest, sweetest, man with the best bush eyes! He was so knowledgeable and answered any questions we had. If he didn’t know. Her would look it up for us. We absolutely loved our time with Victor. He went above and beyond to make our Safari spectacular.
Stopping at the masaai village was one thing I would avoid. It was $50USD per car to stop in and they truly looked like they didn’t want to be there. It didn’t seem authentic at all. I found it very uncomfortable and the people kept asking for more money the entire time we were there. It seemed to just be a money grab for the people in the village more than a learning experience.
That aside, my experience with climb kili was wonderful and I would highly reccomend them to anyone who is looking to book either adventure in Tanzania! You won’t be disappointed.
I had an amazing time! The crew was amazing, taking care of our needs and having camp ready and comfortable for our arrival. Nestor did a great job getting us ready in the morning and getting us to the tent for our meals…always with a smile! The food was great! So impressed with what Simon could pull together with only a camp stove. I think my favorite meal was the grilled cheese and chicken. And the birthday cake was an unexpected surprise! Please thank him again, it really made my day. That and the crew singing me happy birthday….I couldn’t have asked for a better 40th birthday! Also – please thank Dustin and Raymond. They really looked out for us, setting a good pace and checking in on how we felt. I got a little light headed on summit day and Raymond and Dustin were constantly checking on me, making sure I was drinking water and eating and finally Dustin carried my pack. I really couldn’t have made the hike w/o them. My family also really appreciated the daily emails w/ pictures….thank you!
For a summit picture, I’ve attached two. One is w/ our group, while I arrived to Tanzania alone, I really couldn’t have done it w/o everyone, and I also added a birthday picture, a wonderful day for me!
Thanks again for everyone!
Happy New year’s.
Alex and I just returned back to London last night. We wanted to thank you and Climbkili crew for all your help and a really great adventure!
Particularly wanted to acknowledge Hermant and Goodloves crew!! Absolute professionals and experts as mountain guides and really good fun too. We noticed they add so many little extras to make the experience a cut above the rest (even among other Climbkili crews). Private drinking and handwashing facilities at caml, hot tea on summit night ascent, detailed briefs with gear tips for the following days, and tested stratergies to preventing Altitude sickness etc. These make such a difference when undertaking a challenge like this.
We are not certain that we would have reached the summit without the help of these two and their team.
We felt in safe hands the whole time. And when Alex did lose vision in both eyes on the summit descent from dust, Herment/Goodlove took great care in assisting her to camp safely. We saw other groups where hikers were stumbling down dangerous sections of trail, looking drunk with fatigue and Altitude sickness, with their guide unattentive and some metres infront of them. Really looked like a nasty fall or faceplant waiting to happen!
Will be passing on our recommendations for Climbkili and this crew to any family and friends headed to Kilimanjaro.
Please pass on our thanks to everybody in Herment and Goodloves crew and the office based staff who made this a trip of a lifetime for us.
Rory and Alex
First trip to Tanzania would not have been as much of a success if not for Climb Kili.
The trip started out with a 3 day safari. I thought this wouldn’t be long enough to see much, but the safari exceeded my expectations with just day one. Our driver really knew the area and tailored the trip so that we could maximize what we saw.
After the safari we returned to our hotel and started climbing the following day. The porters and guides took care of our every need and went out of their way to make sure everyone summits. If you’re worried about not getting enough food, don’t be, you will be feed more than enough. They did a great job of assessing our group to set the pace on each day of the hike. Although we went during the dry season, our first few days were met with heavy rain. Luckily last few days were clear skies as we took in the views from the rooftop of Africa.
I wanted to reach out and thank you both for helping out with the planning for my trip last week up Kilimanjaro with Herment, Raymond, and their crew. Herment and Raymond were amazing guides. I was extremely impressed with how much both of them knew about the mountain to include all the information on types of plants, animals, etc. we would come across. The entire team always made us feel welcomed. From the first day to the being dropped off at the hotel, everyone was very friendly and made the trip something I will never forget. I will, without a doubt, always recommend Climb Kili and specifically Herment or Raymond as guides for anyone that asks me about heading over to Tanzania for this type of adventure. I hope to bring your company business in the future whether it’s through safaris with my family or climbing the mountain again.
Thank you again,
Just a very quick message (limited WiFi on safari!) to say what a truly wonderful experience I had summiting Kili. James, Goodluck, Jackson, Douglas, Alpha, Emmanuel, Francis, Frederick, Mustafa, Peter & Samwell. Were all pivotal in enabling me and my holiday husband, Patrick, to summit successfully. They are absolute superstars. They were so kind, thoughtful, generous and uplifting; they’re an asset to Climb Kili. From a handpicked birthday flower to a birthday cake carried up the mountain. The cheerful good morning greetings and their motivating singing. To the sweet tea we sipped at sunrise on our way to the summit. Wonderful memories that will remain with me forever! Thank you
I was extremely happy with what ClimbKili provided. The booking and admin stuff with you was smooth and you always responded quickly. The recommended preparations were excellent-I knew what to expect and I had everything I needed for the climb.The office staff at the start hotel in Arusha were good. My guide Amani Minja was outstanding- a thorough, professional leader, always working to help we four climbers make it to the summit. The rest of the team was also excellent-friendly, helpful and very hard working.
Climbkili was exceptional and we are so glad we chose them for our Kilimanjaro hike and safari. My husband and I had never traveled to Africa and so we are so grateful to Tiffany Watson for helping us put together a once in a lifetime adventure. She quickly responded to all our emails and even spent an evening on the phone with me, helping me figure out which flights were best. Dina’s amazing team at the Summit Safari Lodge took over once we arrived in Tanzania. Every detail was taken care of from the moment we arrived at the Kilimanjaro airport to the day we flew home. The morning we began our hike up Kilimanjaro, we were introduced to our amazing guides, Seraphin and Mike, who expertly guided us up the mountain. They continuously checked our health, carried our packs when we were tired, set an appropriate hiking pace “polepole”, and gave us much needed encouragement throughout our journey. They are the reason I made it to the top of Kilimanjaro! Our team of porters were also excellent. We were greeted with smiles, songs, and a gourmet meal every evening when we arrived at camp. Our tents were already set up for us with our belongings inside. We were thankful for the excellent food that was prepared for us on the mountain. We began each day with eggs, crepes, porridge, fruit and meats. And were served lunches and dinners of soup and a variety of main dishes. We ate each meal in a dining tent complete with tables, chairs, and candlelight. As a woman, I was especially grateful for the “toilet tent” that Climb Kili provided at each camp site. The entire team was fantastic! After Kilimanjaro, we flew to Zanzibar for some much-needed rest on the beach. Climbkili stored our hiking gear at their offices during our time in Zanzibar and arranged all our airport transportation. This allowed us to make all the luggage weight restrictions on Precision air. After Zanzibar, we returned to Arusha to begin our safari with Climbkili. Our guide, Laurence, was fantastic! He was knowledgeable about all the animals and knew where to find them. We spent 4 days touring Tarangire National Park, the Serengeti, and Ngorongoro. Climbkili arranged for us to stay in some amazing lodges during our safari – Karatu Acacia Farm Lodge, Kilma Tented Camp, and Serena Safari Lodge. Our safari ended at 4 PM and our flight home was the same night at 9 PM so Climbkili allowed us to use a room at the Summit Safari Lodge for a few hours before our flight so we could shower and change before spending 23 hours on an airplane. We absolutely loved our vacation with Climbkili and highly recommend them!
