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.”

for Climbing Kilimanjaro 8-Day Lemosho Route
Linda Winston From Germany On
“A few years ago, our son suggested that we climb Mt. Kilimanjaro with him, but we were quite hesitant, because we were 60 at the time. We have done quite a bit of hiking, including Mt. Whitney, but never anything higher that 14,500 feet. After reading about this great hike on The Dahlia tours site, we decided to go for it. So, we trained for two years, and on February 13, 2019, our son, Brian, two of his friends, Joel, and Rose, and my husband, Bob, and I, started out on our eight-day Lemosho route hike. Our guide was Faza and assistant guides, Leon and Peter. Amon took care of us in camp, and Asha did some excellent cooking for us. The mountain was amazing, and our guides and the whole crew were kind, helpful, very friendly, respectful, and made our hike a fantastic adventure. They helped us every step of the way. We even had our own, little private toilet set up for us each day by one of the porters. They called my husband Papa, and me Mum, and they made sure we were safe and had a great time. Faza, Leon and Peter trained us to go pole, pole, and so we all successfully reached the summit. We loved every minute of our adventure, and part of our hearts are still in Tanzania with Dahlia Africa. Our 7-year-old grandson asked if we would climb Mt. Kilimanjaro with him, so it is on our calendar for 10 years from now, when he is 17 and we are 72. Hopefully we will be lucky enough to get Faza, Leon and Peter to guide us to the roof of Africa one more time. We will surely get back but for now we recommend Dahlia tours for All of your trip in Tanzania.”

for Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro 9-Day Northern Circuit
Geraldine Sharkey From England On
“My family and I walked the Northern circuit of Kilimanjaro and we absolutely loved it, Dahlia Africa suggested this route to us as it is 9 days which minimizes your risk of altitude sickness due to more acclimatization time. At many points we felt as though we were the only people on the mountain due to the route being a less commonly used one. Dahlia Africa were faultless from beginning to end, our guides Linus and Brian were extremely knowledgeable and motivational, keeping our spirits high at some of the trickier points of the track. The food cooked for us by Asha, the chef, was always delicious and she always ensured we were happy with what was on the menu so we were getting enough food to keep us going.

Just a short note (short because I’m still speechless) to say thanks for the Kilimanjaro experience we had from this operator, It was unbelievable and I’m still ranting about it.

THANK you. You supported us and got us up that mountain. Going to the summit was one of the best days of my life. I’m glad to know you, glad to have met you, and blessed to call you my friend.”

for Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro 9-Day Northern Circuit
Eugene Smith From USA On
“Just recently summited Kilimanjaro with Dahlia tours and his team. What an experience! Absolutely loved every minute of it. Cannot recommend it highly enough. A once in a lifetime achievement. FANTASTIC!!! FAZA and his team were brilliant from start to finish. Professional, superbly organised, health and safety conscious at all times, good humoured and with a great sense of team spirit. We were a group of eleven and it wasn’t long before we were all imbued with the above qualities. All of us summited. There was a fantastic sense of camaraderie and looking out for each other throughout the whole experience, particularly on summit night. This camaraderie wasn’t just accidental. Dahlia Africa team worked from morning to night before and during the trek on developing this essential team spirit. The food was amazing. Hats off to the chefs. The tents were always dry and comfortable and ready when we arrived at sites. Great banter was had between all every evening. Some terrible cheating occurred during cards, but was great fun. Before going read Dahlia tours “What to pack” list carefully and follow it helped us to not over pack. Buy good quality hiking gear. Heed all advice and get plenty of mountain hiking in beforehand. Again, I thoroughly recommend Dahlia Africa trekking team. I will be back!”
