Team Kilimanjaro the BEST GUIDES in Kili!

I am beyond grateful to Ally for the great work she did in helping me plan our trip! It was a trip of a lifetime for all of us. We were 4 girlfriends and 2 guys who we did not know before and joined our group and became good friends to us. Nick Basso our guide and his team were a dream team! I can't say enough good things about Nick Basso, his caring for us on a daily basis with no details ever been overlooked. The food we ate in the mountain was out of this world delicious and they were so accommodating to our needs. I did close to a year of research and could not have picked a better company. Thank you for everything Team Kilimanjaro! Ally your attention to details were a must and much appreciated. Nick you are the best and we will be friends forever! Sincerely,
Paula, Flavia, Juliana, Mike, Glynne, Joel and Wendy

Kilimanjaro in 7 days

We were a party of five from Wales UK. Aged mostly in our fifties. We took seven days and all made the summit. Without Team Kilimanjaro I doubt we would have all made it. We met other climbers who went with other companies who had a lower success rate for their groups

An unforgettable experience

My adult son and I just completed an 8-day Excel trek on the TK Rongai Route. We couldn't be more pleased with our experience. In preparation for the trek, David responded quickly and plainly to all questions; and as the start date neared he sent a series of messages covering everything we needed to know. We arrived at Kilimanjaro Airport (JRO) at 8:30 PM and after quickly passing through Customs we immediately spotted our placard-holding driver who drove us about an hour to the Outpost Lodge in Arusha. We had opted for standard lodging and were pleasantly surprised to find a lovely gated enclave of cottages nestled among tropical foliage with comfortable mosquito-netted beds, western-style bathrooms, free WiFi, a very moderately priced restaurant with a broad international menu, and very friendly staff.
Since we had a free day before our climb, David had arranged a walking tour of Arusha for the next morning at a very reasonable price. We enjoyed it very much.
The night before the start of the climb, Kevn, our principal guide, met us at the lodge, ensured that all our gear was adequate, and provided the few rental items (mittens, gaiters, etc.) that we had told David that we would need.
Kevn and Richard (our assistant guide) offered just the right combination of urging and restraint to ensure that had a successful summit. They frequently examined and questioned us to ensure that we were in good condition and that we weren't hiding any ill effects of the altitude. The supporting team was excellent.
We will never forget the unfailing good spirit and politeness of the trekking support team. My son and I each carried only a day pack containing what we needed for the day – mainly water, energy bars, and rain gear. After we left camp each morning, the team would break camp, pack everything up, and haul it to the next camp site. After about an hour on the trail, the porters would begin to pass us carrying large back packs as well as loads balanced on their heads. As they passed, they would encourage us, who were hiking far more slowly with much lesser loads. Probably the most pleasantly surprising thing was the variety and quality of the food provided. The things that the cook (Po) prepared using only a small camp stove were amazing.
After the trek we spend anther night at the lodge and then were driven back to the airport by TK. Everything arranged or provided by Team Kilimanjaro throughout the trip met or exceeded our expectations. Well done!

Highly Reccommednded

The whole team at TK were fantastic from start to finish.
I was a single climber and made to feel welcome from the moment I arrived. Transport from the airport to the hotel was comfortable and the driving a lot less scary than I had imagined. Our lead guide Leo met me at the Hotel and answered any questions I had. Transport from the hotel to the start point was on time. The journey is fairly long to the start point and the bus was a little cramped but not unbearable.
Once we started the climb everything was organized and in place just as described in the itinerary and during each brief given by Leo. His team done an amazing job of transporting all equipment and setting up ready for our arrival. Food during the climb was of a much higher standard than I had imagined.
I did suffer from some sickness the day before summiting but followed the guidance of the lead guide Leo and still managed to summit with the main group with no dramas.

An unforgettable amazing trip of a lifetime!

This was my first trip to Africa and I was part of a team of 8 women (Team LUCKili - Ladies of Uckfield Climb Kilimanjaro) that took the 8 day Alternative Lemosho Route to the summit of Kili. I cannot praise Joshua R and his wonderful team enough!
We were made to feel so welcome and so safe during our adventure. Joshua R and his assistant guides Filex, Frank and Silvery were strong, confident, fun and friendly leaders. Haruna, Jonathan, Eliudy and Pol were lovely, intuitive and caring - always ensuring we had enough food, water... always going the extra mile with a smile! Omary and his team's cooking was delicious - we were in awe of each and every meal made on the mountain! A special mention to Frank for carrying my heavy camera for me - he took lots of photos and captured some very special moments for Team LUCKili ("Wacheka! hahahahahaha!")
Summit night was sooooo special. A night that I will never forget. We had an amazing team that got us to the top... Joshua, Frank, Filex and Silvery were joined by Haruna, Joshua A, Eric and Philipo to help us reach the summit... We were so well looked after - their care and attention for each and every one of us was second to none. What really made it special for me was their singing on summit night... I really think that their singing got us to the top - it gave us all something to focus on and walk in time to, pole pole, of course!
We all made it to the summit on Thurs 9th Feb 2017, where we were so elated that we danced and sang together on the rooftop of Africa - my feet haven't really touched the ground since! Such an amazing experience with my "dada nguvu" ("strong sisters"), with a truly special team of guides and porters. I will never forget you and this amazing adventure. Thank you so much. Asante sana kaka!
