Standing on the Roof of Africa

Visited: Sep 2014 Reviewed: Dec 04, 2014

A group of 7, all friends, decided over a drink to go & climb Mt Kilimanjaro! So the first challenge was to find the tour operator to suit our needs. After a lot of web browsing we settled on Maasai Wanderings who also were the tour operator for our safari after the Kilimanjaro trek. From the booking, the communication months before our adventure to the final good bye handshake, Maasai Wanderings were friendly, professional & most helpful. The trek was amazing & the pre trek briefing was great as the chief guide checked all our clothing & equipment for suitability so when we stared our trek we felt confident that we had the correct clothing for the unpredictable weather.

We embarked on the Machame route over 6 days which was tiring but exhilarating at the same time. The guides were great in the way they catered for the different levels of fitness in the group & were always at hand to carry a day pack or encourage you along. The porters, or fighters, as they like to be called, are the real heroes. They too walk all the way to base camp with all the needed equipment, smile & welcome you into camp at the end of the days walk, hand out hot washing water to your tent followed by a hot drink & snacks. The food the whole way up and down was ample & nutritionally well balanced to cater for the high energy demands.

The summit night is amazing,watching the sun rise at Stella Point will stay with me forever. On the way up to the summit, & along the whole trek the guides are very mindful of how everyone was feeling which was comforting & at no time did any of us feel unsafe. The whole trek was wonderful & the staff of Maasai Wanderings enhanced the experience. I hope to return one day & do it all again & without a doubt I will go with Maasai Wanderings again.
Thank you to all the staff for a most memorable experience.

My safari of dreams

Visited: Feb 2017 Reviewed: Apr 05, 2017

My safari with Regional Tours and Safaris in Tanzania was the best trip I have ever taken in my life, and I have traveled a lot. Maturaf and his team helped us every step of the way. We changed our itinerary some times and the team made that very easy for us to do, allowing us to customize the trip to our liking. Regional Tours & Safaris Tanzania was focused and pr... read more

Machame Route

Visited: Mar 2016 Reviewed: Mar 10, 2017

I would never tell someone that they shouldn't climb Mt-Kilimanjaro. If you want to make it easy, take 7 days on a route and you will make it to the top with no problem.
I reached Uhuru Peak at 10a.m. using the Machame route on a 7 day trek with 5 of my friends. Here are some pointers that would probably help you plan a trek

Marangu Route

Visited: Oct 2016 Reviewed: Jul 11, 2016

The Marangu Route climb is often done in five or six days. The Marangu Route is sometimes called the Coca Cola route because it is an easier, and popular, option of the many routes. You will come across many scenic views, rain forest, semi-desert and the Moundi Crater. Read more

Lemosho route - 7 days

Enosa Expeditions provided everything for me, including airport transfers, accommodation (a very nice hotel called Park View Hotel, located in Moshi town), camping facilities and all staff in mountain.

I climb Mount Kilimanjaro through Lemosho route for 7 days and my guide "Benson" made everything to reach the Summit of Mount Kilimanjaro!

Touching the stars on top of the Kili

Visited: Feb 2009 Reviewed: Jun 03, 2014

Kilimanjaro was one of my best experience in life. While traveling to Tanzania with friends we decided we could not miss Kilimanjaro. We were young and unconscious as we had not prepared for the trip and were not equipped. You can rent equipment on site, but we decided we could do without sticks or head lights! We had a team of cook and carriers. We took the easy r... read more

Awesome Kili trek

Visited: Dec 2013 Reviewed: May 27, 2014

My husband, brother and I did the trek up Kilimanjaro last December. We had a great time! Kilimanjaro has such diverse ecosystems at every stage of the mountain, so bring many layers of clothes. I was amazed by the number of different trees and plants you will never see anywhere else. Day-to-day climbing was fun with snacks and tasty meals provided in between. The ... read more

Put on your climbing gear

Visited: Oct 2007 Reviewed: Mar 07, 2014

If you are on an African safari that calls for challenge, then the place to be is Kilimanjaro NP. A real mountaineering experience takes about eight days to the Uhuru peak, which is the highest summit on the continent, but am not so sure whether or not I can make it there!

This was a kind of picnic to stretch out muscles and it turned out to be so great. For tw... read more

Climbing Kilimanjaro: Rongai Route

Visited: Jan 2013 Reviewed: Feb 19, 2014

A few of us were lucky enough to have the opportunity to climb Kilimanjaro in conjunction with an African safari. Due to our schedules, we had to do the climb after our safari, which I thought would be the wiser option, as we'd have time to get over jetlag. However, safaris are tiring events unto themselves and I was pretty tired at the end. We ended up needing an ... read more

My one regret about Kilimanjaro

Andrea
Visited: Sep 2006 Reviewed: Jan 22, 2014

The Kilimanjaro National Park’s biggest attraction is, without a doubt, the mountain itself. Most hikers and climbers can’t wait to get to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro. They spend their nights carbo-loading, planning routes, packing gear. They hardly sleep for excitement and anticipation.

But there is much more to the park than reaching the top – or summiting. ... read more

Located in Tanzania, Kilimanjaro is the tallest mountain in Africa. A wonder, too tempting to resist for the adventurous kind. A tempting of fate, an undertaking few people have conquered . And here we were a team of 5 individuals, it was past the 2007 election violence in Kenya and we were here to climb for peace. There was no looking back, our climb was to conve... read more
