I recommend Climb Kili wholeheartedly. I heard that choosing a local guiding service would make all the difference, and it did. Emanuel and Veda were perfect in every way, and the staff made an arduous experience almost luxurious at a reasonable price. I still can’t believe they set up a lunch tent on the top of a 15K-foot rise during a hailstorm. The meals were delicious and every single member of the staff was stellar. I ended up booking my after-climb safari with them as well and it was just as wonderful. Even the between-trip day of attractions in Moshi. Every detail fabulous. I’m a single traveler, so to be able to choose my dates regardless of set trip times made all the difference. Don’t keep Googling–this is the one for the mid-priced traveler who wants an authentic experience.
