for Climbing Kilimanjaro 8-Day Lemosho Route
Enzo From UAE On
“Our experience with Dahlia Africa completely exceeded any expectations we had going into the trip. We really did not know what to expect, but we were blown away by the care and attention each member of the mountain staff and every Dahlia Africa Team we came across throughout the trip from their invite to their office for BBQ, and leading up to it. Judith our trip advisor answered oodles of emails from me, some multiple times a day, with straight forward and good information. He was incredibly helpful with planning leading up to the trip and truly put us at ease.

Our staff on the mountain was amazing, Fazza, our guide were great. They were so genuine and truly caring about our wellbeing, and most importantly got us up and down the mountain safely! Our staff always went above and beyond. The campsite was set up so nicely overnight, set off in a little private area at busy sites and our private bathroom tent always close by. Our cook was amazing, the food was delicious, I was speechless at how he could prepare such food under the conditions on the mountain.

Our bathroom porter was a sweet heart, he cleaned it multiple times a day some days, and always had a smile on his face. Our waiter we loved too! He was a sweetheart and we got to know him a bit chatting during meal time and he was always so pleasant.

The porters who carried our duffel bags always came back walking on the trail to meet us and take our day packs from us towards the end of the trail, but some days they walked an hour to come meet us and take our day packs; they were so great! This was after they had already carried our duffel bags to the site and help get the camp site all set up.

We loved our entire staff and truly appreciate all the work each one of them did to contribute to our success on the mountain. May be we could not have done it without the help of each one and we cannot express our gratitude enough. We know how hard each person works every day on the mountain to make the climbers happy and we truly loved each member of our staff and thought the world of them.

Equipment was top notch, the tents were awesome and always secure; sleeping bags were very warm and sleeping mats were amazing!

You will not be disappointed if you choose to climb with Dahlia Africa, They made our experience so memorable! Thank you!”

“From the very beginning, our travel agent was flexible with our budget and needs and gave us an excellent recommendation for a 10-night safari and 5days in Zanzibar Islands. Every aspect and every question were thoroughly covered by both of our travel company contacts. They gave us a full breakdown of what to expect each day from both the driver/guide and the accommodations through both an online portal and a customized pamphlet that gave tips on everything from the details of the accommodations to tipping customs to even what to pack for the trip.
We actually ran into a problem with a self-booked flight heading into the safari the flight had been cancelled without any notification to me or my husband. I contacted our travel company to let them know, and our contact was all over it, even though the flight had not been part of the itinerary that our travel company had covered. He was able to get in touch with the airline that cancelled and helped to ensure that we were booked on another airline to get to Kilimanjaro Airport to be in time for the start of our safari.
While our guide was amazing and knowledgeable throughout the entire trip, the accommodation at the Mbugani Tented lodge in Central Serengeti was perfect. My husband and I were thrilled with how luxurious the tent was, but what really made the stay was the staff. They were so kind and thoughtful, I had the flu throughout the entire stay and they made sure I had enough fresh ginger tea to cure an entire family with the flu. The last night we were there, they made us a special dinner outside, underneath the stars. The staff sang and danced us a farewell song and we had such a wonderful time!!! Our guide, Bashiri was fantastic at spotting animals during our safari and the staff at Mbugani were absolutely wonderful to us. It's the people that made the biggest difference for us.
I cannot thank our agency enough for the amazing honeymoon that we had.”

“I would thoroughly recommend this trip with Dahlia Africa– it was simply magical! We were a little worried that this was a local company of whom we knew nothing and we have been used to the large global operators in this field. We need not have worried at all. The itinerary was perfect and, with the interludes of visiting local school, orphanage home and coffee & Banana plantations, we had a perfect mixture of cycling to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro and interesting things to do with local community. The bikes were great and the hotels were a very good choice. The terrain was challenging, as this is the cycling to the highest point of Africa, but we did not need to get off and push at all. Our group of experience mountain cyclist all got up to the summit and the views were simply breathtaking! Our guide, FAZA, was wonderful, with his perfect English, he was both charming and interesting as well as caring and thoughtful, he and his team was much more than just mountain team as they were at all times looking after us and keeping eyes on how we were doing, stopping at just the right time to give us rest, fresh water and delicious food, exactly when we needed it. If we tired, and we did sometimes, then they were more than ready and willing to pack up the bikes and take us into the cool rocks to rest. All in all it was a really good week and the very best cycling tour we have done anywhere in the world, and that is saying a lot….. as we have done cycling holidays in England, France, Italy, Cuba and Croatia. This one beat them all hands down!
Never forget to mention the company’s owner Brian, very generous and down to earth person his sense of humor and the way he organizes his team with gentle and discussions made our trip as smooth as possible.”

for 8-Day Tanzania Safari
Andreas Blome From Germany On
“This company listened to what we wanted out of a trip and put together an incredible itinerary tailored to us. They were very knowledgeable and was available during the trip to ensure it went smooth. We always had a guide with us which was very welcome. The trip far exceeded our expectations. Amazing guides, top notch lodging, and itinerary that made the most of our time.
The trip was perfect and if I had more vacation I would add a few days at the end to help familiarized more with Dahlia tours team, they are so generous.”

for Mount Kilimanjaro Climbing 7-Day Rongai Route
Paul O’Carroll From Holland On
“My son (10) and I (51) just finished our Kilimanjaro climb. Iam the experienced backpackers and were prepared for the trip but my son NOT. I have a few observations that may be helpful to others. We went during rainy season, and the crowds were non-existent. We chose the Rongai route, which approaches from the dry north side and descends via the Marangu route on the south side. The weather was not that bad, and we never had more than one other small group at any of our campsites. I highly encourage going during the slow season. On summit night, we were the first to Uhuru, and saw maybe 15 people on our way down. I can't imagine waiting in line for a picture by the sign as we were told happens during peak times. The solitude was great. We used 15-degree F bags and were always warm, and hiked in trekking shoes, not boots. We had high levels of snow on our summit day (the rainy season brings a lot of snow), but with gaiters the hiking shoes were not an issue. The snow during this season was beautiful. The hike down and through the rain forest in well maintained, and you do not have to hike through mud on this route as some suggest, so again shoes are fine if that is what you normally hike in.

We used Dahlia tours & safaris and service was outstanding. We had good nutrition and a competent guide, which is all that is needed. We took a guided town tour of Moshi before our climb, which was a great cultural experience. We totally recommend Rongai route and Dahlia Africa for Kilimanjaro Hiking.”
