Booked a 5 night safari for 3 people including my parents, which spanned Tarangire, Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti.
1. Our guide (Chris) was excellent. He was funny, inquisitive and very informative. He spoke very good English and managed our trip well. I found his knowledge and anecdotes very informative; it was a great way to learn about the animals and their importance to the local culture.
2. The trip was organised from the pick u... read more

Brilliant safari - highly recommend Jiwe Adventures

Views: 11 Visited: Dec 2018 Reviewed: Mar 06, 2019

Brilliant safari - more than exceeded our expectations. We managed to see the 'Big 5' within 2 days. The safari was well organised from the beginning with a comprehensive briefing. The 6 days were well organised and we were treated to specialized knowledge with a charismatic guide. The accommodation and food throughout the trip was excellent particularly within the Serengeti. Overall, we would highly recommend Jiwe Adventures to anyone who wan... read more

I was a little afraid booking anything by Internet but I had a perfect experience with Jiwe Adventures, I traveled all by myself but the team they have was a perfect company. Everyone enjoying everything and being happy beside giving interesting information and it was easy to appreciate that they knew what they were doing. Perfect organization considering meals, picking up in hotels and accommodation. I did the Machame Route, 7 days.

My husband and I did the 7 day Lemosho route with Jiwe adventures and on day 2 I was ready to give up but the team proved to be an amazing support system and we wouldn't have reached the summit without them!
The route and whole logistics were really well thought out and everything possible was done to make this experience as comfortable as can be expected. If you go, ask for Peter and Godluck as guides, both were amazing, Peter was telling m... read more

I went on a 7 day climb up Kilimanjaro on the Rongai route with friends, and I would highly recommend for anyone considering climbing Kilimanjaro. Look no further than Jiwe Adventures.

The value for this trip was extraordinary! Pricing was very reasonable, allowing a budget for tipping, and the service was outstanding. The guides, porters and cooks are employees (not contractors) who appear to immensely enjoy their work. They truly cared ab... read more

A memory that will last forever

Last week we went on a safari trip with Jiwe Adventures (4 nights/5 days) and it was better than we could ever dream.

When we arrived at the airport (Kilimanjaro) the driver was already waiting there for us. He took us to the hotel. Good hotel, nice people, nice food and fair prices. The next day our adventure started. During the safari we felt really comfortable and our guide was really good.

We did a private tour (just us as a coupl... read more

Exceptional safari

Jiwe adventures worked with us to design the program that best met our expectations. They patiently made changes along the way based on our feedback. Communications from them were timely, clear and relevant. Our calls/inquiries were answered promptly to our satisfaction. We took a 7 day safari through Tarangire National Park, Lake Manyara National park, Ngorongoro Crater and Serengeti National Park. We spent 4 days in Zanzibar after our safari... read more

Travelling with Jiwe adventures was absolutely amazing experience!! The entire process was seamless and amazing. We had a wonderful guide Chris, he has eagle-eyes and made our safari very special!! Every game drive we went on was an amazing experience. We spotted so many animals and was all down to our very talented driver. He wouldn't stop until he had found what we were after!

Jiwe adventures BEYOND all expectations.

If you are looking for a company to guide you in achieving the incredible feat of climbing Kilimanjaro, look no further. Jiwe Adventures staff is most professional, kind, warm, and friendly. You will bond not only with the people in your group, but the staff as well, and possibly make some valuable, life-long friendships.

In addition, some very important things to think about:

Awesome trip!

Well, what can I say about the great safari experience I had with Jiwe adventures? To say this company bent over backwards to help me would be an understatement. They did everything I asked and more, from collecting me at the airport and arranging my hotel and doing the same for my return home but lets get to the safari,

Great company, excellent service

Views: 137 Visited: Jan 2018 Reviewed: Mar 26, 2018

After checking a few companies Jiwe adventures was the one that gave us the best feeling because of the good communication forehand and good reviews. We chose a combination of two packages and that really suited our wishes. We did two nights of camping and two nights in a lodge.

We had a 5-day safari trip with Lake Manyara NP, Tarangire NP, Ngorongoro and Serengeti NP starting from Moshi and it was more than we ever wished for.

Great service, great guidance, excellent experience.

We had an amazing time on this safari, made possible by a great group of people in Jiwe adventures. We had emailed a few tour operators to help in planning for this trip, and this company stood out on so many levels. We found their email correspondence to be very prompt, professional and comprehensive which made it very easy to customize our trip. They were also very reasonably priced compared to some other operators.

A WORTH EXPERIENCE WITH JIWE TEAM

Views: 226 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 gui... read more

From the start, our experience with Jiwe adventures was a good one. They promptly responded to our every question, ranging from "Where should we stay?", via "What should we wear?" to "How can we charge our cameras?".

Chris, our driver and guide, and Ally, our chef, gave us an amazing 5 days and 4 nights in 3 different locations. We went to Ngorongoro Crater, Serengeti for 2 nights, and finally Tarangire for our last night. All the time they... read more

Truly the trip of a lifetime

Our group of four (family and friends) worked directly with Edgar at Jiwe adventures to customize a safari to fit our interests. From arrival at Kilimanjaro to departure from the Lobo airstrip for a Zanzibar beach stay,
everything was beautifully planned.

We began with a day trip to Arusha Nat'l Park to 'meet' our first wildlife and take time for a ranger-led hike and canoeing. Next to Tarangire Nat'l Park (Ndovu Camp); a school and loca... read more

My partner and I did a safari with Jiwe Adventures last August and it was really great. Edgar (Jiwe's owner) treated us well. Always worried about our trip, helping us with all of our doubts since the first moment, he prepared the safari according to our wishes. Very professional person.
In addition I have to say that Jiwe is really cheap considering the quality Edgar offers.

Best safari ever

Choosing a safari company on the Northern Tanzanian circuit is not an easy task, as there are MANY companies!
From the beginning I could tell that Jiwe Adventures is a company with a difference ... from the great website, and Joao's attentive and prompt email responses which puts one at ease regardless of your type of query.
The good experience continued upon arrival in Moshi and meeting Edgar (Director) and other Jiwe adventures staff.
