Salesh Ramnarain (South Africa) – Successful summit on 8 August 2017


Hi Nikki,

Trust you are well.

I got caught up with my work when I returned, forgot to contact you.

I would like to thank you and the team for a superb experience and hospitality of Kilimanjaro.

The porters and team I had at Kilimanjaro were excellent.

I really enjoyed the climb and the entire hike from start to finish.

Also, to you thank you for all the arrangements, from the time I was fetched, to the time I was dropped off to the airport all the arrangements were all well executed.

Take care.

Zbigniew Kuder (Australia) – Successful summit on 8 August 2017


Hi Nikki

Yes, indeed,the trip to Tanzania was amazing. Nice climate and weather which suits me.

The climbing was the great experience for me /and my muscles/.And I made it. Sometimes I dont know how…….for sure thanks to guides

assistants and guide Gideon by himself.  The summit attempt was pretty hard honestly – a loooong walk in the night, very long day.

That’s one and only one bad thing – no time and energy to admire the mountains.

The rest ; crew,food,equipment..etc…is very good and friendly.

Thank you Nikki for your help and advices. …………with best regards…zibby

Hi Adel,

We had an amazing experience and we completed a survey and provided our feedback to the team. You have a great team and they were really amazing and so very patient with us. When the going got tough, they stood by us and encouraged us to keep going.

I was hoping to loose some weight but I don’t think I did because of the great food they prepared. It was Five star treatment on the mountain.

Charity, Musa, Lawrence and the entire team are amazing. I miss them already.

A big thank you to you as well for answering all our emails timely  and providing us with all the critical information we needed. I have also provided feedback on your Facebook page (under the name Oh Jen) and I will definitely refer my family and friends to you if they ever decide to conquer Kilimanjaro.

Many thanks,


Ryan Tyler and Lisa Frazier (USA) – Successful summit on 18 July 2017


Hi Nikki,

Nice to hear from you.  We had an amazing time; everything in terms of logistics went smoothly which is a first for us as we are used to dealing with some sort of logistical problem while traveling.  The Kilimanjaro team was attentive, kind, knowledgeable, and a joy to be around.  The “Yes We Can” team was probably our favorite part of the climb after reaching the summit, of course.  We were a bit sad for our climb to end because of the wonderful crew.

On safari we were thoroughly impressed with Paul’s expertise and commitment to ensuring we had the best possible experience.  The migration/crossing — WOW! The safari accommodations exceeded our expectations and we got a bit spoiled between the wine, food, and attention while at camp each night.  Dinner each night also gave us the opportunity to get to know Paul and learn a bit more about life in Tanzania.  One of my favorite things about travel are uncovering the commonalities among people regardless of native country.

Overall, the trip from start to finish exceeded our expectations.  Thank you to you and Charity for all of your help!  We sincerely appreciate your hard work in the months leading up to the trip and Charity’s help while in Tanzania.  We fell in love with Tanzania and will be ambassadors for life.

Take Care,

Lisa and Ryan

Leonardo Quezada (Australia) – Successful summit on the 10 June 2017


Hi Nikki,

We made it :-)

I wanted to personally thank the entire team that supported us during our amazing trip.

Firstly, thank you to you and the admin team for coordinating all of the trip details – from choosing the right route, to hotel transfers and  everything in between.  Everything that was discussed was provided as agreed.

As for the crew on the ground, John and his team exemplify client service and served as great ambassadors for Climbing Kilimanjaro as well as Tanzania itself.

Below are a few highlights from the trip that I would like to call out and hope you can pass on to the team in Moshi;

– Our lead guide – John – was very welcoming and together we referred to the whole crew as “family”, constantly sharing food etc as part of the team/family experience

– John’s customer focus was greatly appreciated. He constantly and consistently checked up on us after meals and treks to make sure we were ok.

– John certainly demonstrated his experience and focus on his climbing program based on our pace and perfected over 200 successful client summits

– The little things John did for us;

– Greeting us with song on long days as we entered our camp site

– Assisting us with our day packs on long days allowing us to walk the last hour or so into camp without one or in my dad’s case walk most of the trek without a day pack so he wouldn’t be burdened with the extra weight
– Clearly calling out daily activities so that there were never any surprises

–  Adjusting the meals to accommodate Dad’s changing dietary requirements

…and a special shout of thanks go to John, Uzwen and our cook – the 3 of which were key to my dad and I successfully reaching the summit.

I am more than happy to repeat my compliments on the Climbing Kilimanjaro website, Facebook and Trip Advisor if that will help.

We had a wonderful trip.

Kind regards,


Congratulations to Alan Harte (Ireland) for successfully reaching Uhuru Peak on 2 March 2017


Hi Annalé,

I have to say we had a superb time on the mountain.
The team were superb. A special mention for Freddy, Michael, Jackson and Moosa (chef) they were absolutely brilliant….
The food was excellent and the organization was above reproach.
I tried on reflection to think of any constructive feedback and could think of none; the trip was that good.
Thanks again to the team for making this such a memorable and enjoyable trip.

Jessi Rosinski (America) – Successful summit attempt on 23 February 2017


Hi Nikki,

I really loved my experience. The whole trip was a blast, and I could not have been happier.

Hiking Kilimanjaro is truly special, and I felt the team of porters, guides, and cooks was outstanding. They were very organized, and I trusted all the information they were giving me.

I like that I was part of a small hiking group. That allowed me to hike with the group as well as take my time when I needed more space.

The trip to Arusha National Park was great, and I am glad that I added this to my package. It was a great way to spend a day and see more of the landscape in Tanzania.

All best,


Chris and Diana Seidler (America) – Successful summit attempt on 23 February 2017


The trip was fantastic. Making it to the summit was certainly the highlight, but the journey to get there was made special by the great group of guides and porters.

David, Athumani and Aseem were spectacular. They definitely had our best interests in mind and encouraged us all the way to the top.

Guides – Very professional

Porters – Engaged with us, we felt like part of a bigger family

Food – very good

Equipment – Tents and sleeping bags more than adequate

Portable toilet – always clean

Singing – camp arrival songs each day were very memorable, I am still humming them today

Overall – would recommend to anyone
