I visited in July 2013
Serengeti Pride Safaris is an expert, professional, small, local outfitter - providing personal attention to ensure a healthy and beautiful trip to the top of Mt Kilimanjaro. Good food, careful attention to a healthy, nicely paced climb, and - importantly - known for ensuring their porters are well trained, outfitted, and compensated through active participation in KPAP (Kilimanjaro Porters Assistance Project) while still keeping their costs very reasonable.

With all the details handled seamlessly your attention will be on each step and gorgeous vista up the mountain - as it should be.

Additionally, Serengeti Pride helped us to volunteer at Cradle of...

SPS was an amazing company to travel with. I did the Kili climb in July 2011 and everybody in our group successfully made the summit. The crew on the mtn were amazing and made the climb enjoyable. They were friendly and helpful. SPS provides more than adequate porters and guides and treats all of their employees with respect. That was one key reason why I decided t...
SPS & Kilimanjaro Climbs was one of the best experiences in my travels! Well organized and run company. The climb and safaris were planed to the detail. Very reasonable prices. Great accommodations and food. Their guides are top notch and the porters are treated well (all had good shoes and warm clothing in contrast to the porters from some other companies seen on ...
