Hi Nikki

Firstly a huge thank you for organizing such an amazing holiday in Tanzania for us. Everything, from the Kenyan Airways flight dramas to all shuttles, hotels, etc and more importantly, to the incredible time we had on Kili, thank you for making it all happen so smoothly.

Our heartfelt thanks to Gideon, Willie and Meleji and their outstanding team of incredible cooks and porters for a truly memorable experience. Words alone are not adequate enough to convey our appreciation of all they did to ensure we got to the top; leadership and guidance, humility and humor, wisdom and patience, boundless energy and an ability to work so very very hard in such a tough environment, have made each member of their team an invaluable asset to Tanzania and we salute them! Their friendship and sincerity has touched our lives in an indelible way and we came down the mountain as one family. Thank you guys. Asante sana! You are super heroes! We look forward to returning soon to Kili with our children and hope to see all the guys again.

Thank you once again Nikki for organizing our dream come true holiday!

Debbie and Chris Haworth

Hi there, I climbed with you guys last month. My guide was Safil (whose name I am probably spelling wrong), and I just can’t say enough good things about the trip and especially about the “dream team” leading us. Safil and his crew were professional, super friendly, funny, and extremely helpful especially when I got sick during the hike. They made my Kilimanjaro experience an incredible one that I’ll cherish for life.

The trip was absolutely phenomenal, we really couldn’t have asked for better. No complaints at all. The guides, porters and cook were extremely friendly, helpful and kind :)

I would most certainly recommend the climb and your tour company to any interested individuals! Thank you for all of your assistance with booking and answering my many questions leading up to our climb.

Best Regards,

Hi Nikki,

Overall, the trip was great, we all appreciate the timeliness and hard work you guys have put to make our ascend a positive and successful attempt.

  • Welcome and goodbye was warm and timely, we got all the information needed and the lady was very sweet and helpful
  • Our guides were awesome. They were professional, nice, friendly, hard working and thoughtful about how each and every one of us was doing/feeling. In particular Safiel, I’ll definitely recommend my friends to utilize his team’s services.


I’ll let you know if anything else comes to mind. Thank you for organizing a great trip.

We arranged 5 day trek on the Marangu route in February through Climbing Kilimanjaro. The reason we chose Climbing Kilimanjaro is that offered a very professional service, fantastic value in comparison with its competitors and from research it was highly recommended by previous clients.
From the initial correspondence with Nikki we never had an issue and all of the numerous emails posing a wide variety of questions were answered promptly and to my satisfaction. All of the support team where experienced and catered for all our needs. I would have no problem recommending Climbing Kilimanjaro and I would encourage any potential hikers to get in contact to see what they have to offer. Best of luck with your trek!
