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.
