“Kilimanjaro trek is a must-do challenge, it is worth experience. Put it in your bucket list” - Anastasia


Views: 316 Visited: Feb 2018 Reviewed: Mar 15, 2018

Just finished the 7-days Machame route up the Kilimangaro with a Jiwe adventures team.
We had 2 great guides (Benjamin and Goodluck), a fine cook (Tarimo) and 11 friendly and helpful porters. It is, of course, hard to compare with other companies, but we were extremely pleased with JIWE. Here are some of the reasons:

- Booking: very good experience (with Edgar), fair price.
- Guides: Very experienced, helpful, friendly and responsible guides.
- Every evening after dinner, they measured our oxygen saturation and pulse and filled a questioner (e.g. about headaches, nausea etc.) to track our physical state. Altitude related sickness was one of our main reasons for concern, and it helped to calm us down knowing that we are under good care.

- Excellent quality of tents, mattresses and sleeping bags (which they provided)
- Overall good atmosphere and vibes. We enjoyed not only being at the summit, but also getting there.
Although it is possible to make the hike in 6-days (and I think this is what most people do), we definitely recommend taking the 7-days options: It makes the last days more relaxed and fun, and gives better opportunity for acclimatization.

In conclusion: We highly recommend Jiwe adventures for Mount Kilimanjaro climb.
