Our experience climbing Mount Kilimanjaro was truly unbelievable, and we couldn’t be happier with Climb Kili! Our guides—Saidi and Roman—were unforgettable. They made us feel comfortable, always reassured us that we would make it to the summit, and were constantly making us laugh. We had so many great conversations throughout our hike. It really felt like we became family in those 8 days on the mountain. We’re truly going to miss Saidi and Roman, but maybe one day we’ll get the chance to see each other again! Our porters were unbelievable, and we can’t thank them enough for their hard work. The friendships we made will always be remembered. Hassan, our server, who did his best to teach us some Swahili, despite our lack of skill in pronunciation; our cook, who, judging by how good the food he made on a mountain was, could probably open a 5-star restaurant in Arusha; Augustino and Mohamed, who we got to know pretty well on our hike; the list goes on…Our safari was a perfect end to our adventure. Our guide, Livingston, was very friendly and informative. The wildlife and nature in Tarangire National Park, and especially Ngorongoro Crater, was breathtaking. We’ll be sure to recommend ClimKili, and Saidi and Roman, to anyone looking to climb Mount Kilimanjaro. Thank you for providing us with an adventure of a lifetime! We’ll never forget our adventure in Tanzania, and all of the people who made that happen! We’d also like to thank you Tiffany for answering all of our questions and helping us prepare for our trip!
We’ve also attached our favorite photo from the trip—our summit photo!
Hopefully someday we may have the chance to return to Tanzania.
