Plamen Ivanov (Bulgaria) – Successful summit attempt on 17 September 2015
Superior package – 6 day Machame route

Dear Nikki,

I didn't have the time to write when i came back from Tanzania, because there was too much work accumulated during my absence and waiting for me in the office.

Now i have few minutes and i just wanted to tell you that i'm quite happy with the services that you provided and with my trip to Tanzania in general. Thank you very much for that!

The climb of Kilimanjaro experience fully met my expectations and even exceeded them by far. The logistics were perfect, our guide John was fantastic, the entire crew was fantastic. I was lucky with the two Americans that i joined, which i now call my good friends and also with the weather. I cannot think of anything that was not OK. Everything was just perfect!

The safari was for me something that i just add to my Kilimanjaro trip. But in the end i was also very happy to do that! It was also a very interesting adventure!

Thank you once again for the great service and all the best!

Kind regards,

Steffanie Altman (USA) – Successful summit attempt on 22 August 2015
Superior package – 7 Day Machame route
My hike up Kilimanjaro was one of my favourite experiences of my life. Every moment of it was incredible. It was physically a fantastic workout and it was a chance to be immersed in nature and separated from the rest of the world. I was very happy to not have cell service or Internet access for the entire climb. I spent a lot of time taking in my surroundings, speaking with my guides and co-hiker, and just thinking. We rarely get so much time to our own thoughts and ourselves.
Freddy and Bariki were incredible guides, and I would recommend them to anyone I know! I truly felt that so long as our health was no in danger, they would do whatever it took to get us to the top. Freddy checked our health every morning and every night, and made sure we were drinking enough water and eating enough calories. They went above and beyond their guide duties to ensure we were having a great time.
They were also very flexible and understanding that my climbing mate and I did not know each other prior and did not know we were not in the same climbing shape. They were incredibly accommodating to both of us, to ensure we felt good and that we got the experience we hoped for.
They allowed me to push myself to a pace that I was enjoying but kept me back just enough to ensure I would be safe.
Every morning we were woken up with fresh hot ginger tea. It was the perfect wake up in the freezing temperatures. After we got ready for the day we’d enjoy a delicious, hot breakfast! We had porridge, toast, omelet, avocado, cheese, and fruit. It was gourmet meals on a mountain!!
When we would arrive to camp everything was already set up by our porters. Our chef always prepared hot water for washing and either lunch or an afternoon snack if it was between meals.
They took incredible care of us. I never doubted if I would get to the top with this crew. I would highly recommend this company to anyone interested in climbing Kilimanjaro! If they are in basic athletic shape and go with Freddy, they’ll not only get to the top of Uhuru peak, they’ll smile the entire way!!
