Just completed an 8 day Lemosho climb with Climb Kili. From the first day we contacted them regarding the trip, through the climb, the safari and finally to airport drop off, they were fantastic. Our US contact, Tiffany, was amazingly responsive to every silly question we could pose. Our drivers (Emmanual, Gabriel) and contact (Lillian) in Arusha were always where they said they would be at the time they said they’d be there. Our climb team was fabulous – Saidi, Joseph, Chichi and G-dlove all worked together to provide us the best experience on the mountain, and in my case, personally made sure that I reached the summit, and never entertained the doubts that were growing in my head from day 3. They made us work hard, but with purpose and our whole group of 8 successfully made it to Uhuru Peak in good health. We were treated like a family the whole way, and we always felt like our well being and comfort were Climb Kili’s highest priority. Our four day safari with John was amazing – his experience and knowledge of the Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater and Tarangire National Park, and his ability to find even the smallest animals made the trip magical. I will treasure this experience always – and luckily, with John’s expert maneuvering, I’ve got great photos to go with my memories. All accommodations throughout the trip were good too, including camping on the climb – our chef created some pretty amazing meals along the way. (I was pretty impressed when I realized one of the porters was carrying around a crate of fresh eggs from camp to camp, would have assumed we’d be getting the powdered version!) I cannot recommend Climb Kili enough – I am just so glad that we chose them.
