I booked Climb Kili after looking at other reviews and saw that many people had great experiences with the company. I AM SO INCREDIBLY GRATEFUL I CHOSE THEM.
Kilimanjaro: I was traveling with my cousin and 5 other hikers on the 8 day Lemosho route in early October 2019. Herment was the lead guide with Goodlove and Amani assisting along with Justin, the AMAZING cook, and 20 porters. Herment has 15+ years on the mountain and it shows. Our group felt so fortunate to have him lead the team. We always felt like we got the best spots at the camps and the team’s energy was contagious. The porters were incredible in setting everything up and breaking down in what always seemed like minutes. I can truly say I would not have made it up that mountain without them – especially Herment who was alongside the entire way. We encountered rain, sleet and snow and I can still say it was an awesome trip and experience. Do not hesitate to book with Climb Kili!!! You will not regret it.
Safari: We decided to tag on a 3 day safari (flight out of Arusha airport to the Serengeti then a drive back to Arusha) afterwards and Charles – our guide was also amazing. Full of knowledge and the best animal spotter there is. We were lucky that the first day we saw almost all of the big five – including an elusive leopard. By the time we got to the crater, we hit them all. We stayed at Kilima Valley Serengeti Tented Lodge and the Ngorongoro Wildlife Lodge while on Safari. Both had spectacular views – Kilima had a breathtaking sunrise view of the Serengeti and the most comfortable beds- and the Ngorongoro Wildlife Lodge had an incredible chef that we were fortunate to experience during our stay.
Tanzania will hold a special place in my heart and it’s because of Climb Kili that I can say that and all their work and coordination to make this trip so memorable.
