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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
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

Sorry for the late reply as I was out of the country. My husband and I had a great time. It was the best adventure I have ever done in my life and will definitively recommend your company to my friends.
The staff was very friendly and every effort was made to accommodate us.
Many thanks once again for your professionalism in responding to me in a timely manner.
thanks for your message and for an awesome experience. Quirin and I truly enjoyed it – despite all challenges.
The team „Yes We Can“ was truly great and was a key success factor to our climb. I can recommend them fully.
Food was good, albeit not gourmet, but we also did not expect gourmet
Thanks so much and all the best
I had a greattttttttttttttttttttt time with the 9 boys who [climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro] with me, it was a great feeling to have 9 guys looking after me 😉
My trip to kili was extremely positive, I have nothing to complain, it was nice of you to insist on having my own portable toilet – that was the most important decision I …ever took 😀 Thank you, Annalé for everythinggggggggggggggggggggggggggggg…
I am also grateful to my guide, who from day one took it ‘Pole Pole’ and that definitely helped! We used to walk non-stop most of the days, with probably only 5 mins break and that definitely helped on the Summit Day.
Well I can keep going on and on about my experience coz my mind is still somewhere on the Kilimanjaro clouds – photo attached 😀
But with this writing let me end by saying that I had a great time and I am grateful for having chosen Climbing Kilimanjaro to make this ‘once in a lifetime journey’ so successful!
Thanks a ton and I hope to climb again with you soon
