Team Kilimanjaro is the best!

I chose to do the 7 day TK Lemosho route with Team Kilimanjaro and cannot say how highly I would recommend them. To start, our guides, Frank and Raymond, were absolutely amazing and I would ask for them specifically if I got the opportunity to do another trip. Every step of our journey was handled with the highest quality, care, and professionalism, always taking our safety and preferences into account. Our chef, Alisante, was top notch, providing us with 3 delicious hot meals a day. Not to mention, my climbing partner has a prosthetic leg and we made it to the top no problem! Come climb with Team Kilimanjaro!

Lemosho 7 days kathy england

we were a family of 4 brother 50 ,sister 49, cousin 44 and a nephew 36. We choose team Kilimanjaro as we were recommended by a friend . It was defiantly the right choice. from the very beginning David answered any question I had. When he was on holiday I spoke to Bianca who was also great. They made me feel confident we'd made the right choice in using them.
We were picked up at the airport and taken to the outpost hotel. Nice hotel very clean and great food. That night Harold came to visit us explain all what we'd be doing over the next week. Harold is a very calm and strong man .He was great, the perfect leader.
We met our gang of porters the next morning they were all so friendly. Paul was the 2nd guide very friendly and helpful. Harold made sure that we stopped to look and enjoy the nature and the scenery. He told us many stories on our long walks.
We had fresh tea every morning bought to us in our tents by hiya who was lovely always smiling. Our food was amazing. Fresh chips on the mountain was a wonderful surprise after a long walk. We never felt hungry the whole time we were there. We would have liked to take Amari our chef home with us. Summit night was hard but Harold filled us with confidence to get up there. One of our group was very sick Harold and shadrack stayed with her and we continued with paul and fusilli. When we returned a couple of hours later Harold appeared with our cousin and they had also made it to the summit. I don't think any other leader would have spent the time and effort that Harold did. He wanted us to complete it as much as we wanted.
All the camp sites we stayed at were very small and quiet we did see some massive camps and I'm glad we wasn't on them. Our portable toilet was kept clean all the time.
I cannot praise Harold and our team enough. When booking ask for Harold
I cannot praise the team we were with enough. All the camp sites we stayed at were very quiet

Team Kilimanjaro - The Best- Strongly recommended

We recently summited Kilimanjaro with Team Kilimanjaro. From the time of initial enquiry some six months ago until our final departure from Arusha, TK had been excellent in providing prompt, detailed service and all on ground organisation was flawless. Our main guide, Jackson, and his whole team were excellent. One cannot underestimate the importance of a good guide as it can make a difference between summiting and not summiting, and more importantly, summiting safely. I had attempted Aconcagua few years back, so I know a bit the importance of an experienced guide. Jackson was very experienced in pacing our group appropriately. He was very calm and collected at all times and on summit night, made sure we were all appropriately equipped. On descending, after exhausting all my energy summiting, coming down the screed slope towards Kibo, was challenging. Unbeknown to me, Jackson phoned three of the porters to come up the lower end of the slope to help support me to get down!! And when I got down, I just flopped on a chair, and the porters helped me take my gaiters off and loosen my shoe laces for me. Is all the small thing that makes a difference, and as I noted, summiting is the goal but to SUMMIT SAFELY, is the ultimate goal.
We can't fault the food either. In fact, all of us are singularly impressed by the quality of the food as well as variety. It is fair to say almost every day, we had a different set of food. In fact, we started a game to predict what soup we are getting each day. I kept predicting tomato soup, but it never eventuated, testifying the variety of other soup they have. 'Waitering' service was excellent, not to mention all the supporting team, getting the tents ready, hot water to wash ourselves, hot drink first thing in the morning in our tent, etc, etc
All in all, I have no hesitation in recommending TK. Whilst they are not the cheapest, nor the most expensive, but when you are climbing high mountains, safety is paramount. Safety comes with a good organisation and an experienced guide and team.

Climbing Kili? Go with Team Kilimanjaro!

My climbing group of 5 completed a 6-day Machame route with Team Kilimanjaro, and we could not be happier with the services provided by the team. From the inquiries that I sent months before we began the climb, all the way until our driver dropped us off at Arusha airport after we came off the mountain, Team Kilimanjaro was an excellent organization and we all felt well taken care of.
Our lead guide Deo was very informative and gave us all the instructions we needed each day, and was friendly, courteous, and very detailed. Our assistant guides Felix and John were also incredible and took great care of us, we all felt safe and supported throughout the entire climb. All three of them (plus Faustus, a porter who came with us to the summit) did a great job caring for us on the night we hikes to the summit, and were always ready with snacks, drinks, and to take our bags if we needed them to.
Our team of porters could not have been better, they always had camp set up and ready for us by the time we arrived, and were very excited to see us each day after we completed our hike for the day. They all congratulated us after we summited and were a great team to have with us. Our chef was amazing, I think the best food I had the entire time I was in Tanzania was on the mountain climb, and none of us ever went hungry. The team also provided us with a number of small luxuries each day that I never expected and was so impressed by (tea and coffee in bed, daily popcorn, hot washing water twice a day...all amazing details when you are climbing a mountain!)
David was very responsive and easy to communicate with as we planned our trip, and everything came together fairly smoothly for us, even as we added extra climbers and changed our plans a couple times throughout the process.
Overall, our group was very impressed with Team Kilimanjaro, and I would recommend them to anyone coming to climb.

TK Lemosho 7 days SAHI x2

I joined onto a group trip which was 7 days TK Lemosho. The trip itself was easy to organise and the staff were very helpful, giving me all the options and explaining everything over email.
Special thank you to Henry Steadman for all his advice before the trip!
There was one other and myself in the group and we had a fantastic team of 13 guides and porters!
The lead guide Harold met me at my hotel the evening before the climb and went through the whole trek with me and checked I had all the kit, he also bought a water bottle, some gaiters and a walking pole for me to borrow as I didn't have any.
From the beginning the guide and assistant guide were amazing, they were knowledgeable and friendly 24/7 and I felt comfortable chatting with them and asking silly questions. They helped with everything, how long we would be walking that day, what we should wear and how much we should eat and drink.
Very special thank you to Calvin the assistant guide for walking alone with me to the summit as I was getting to cold waiting with my partner. He made a very long walk in the dark lots of fun - playing music for me and chatting all the way.
The porters were incredible, they did everything for us, carried our things, set up our tents, made delicious food and even woke us up with a cup of tea in the mornings. All of this with a huge smile and they congratulated at every camp!

Thank you all for an experience I'll never forget. I will definitely be recommending the team to friends and family.
