“After climbing the Shira Route with Maasai Wanderings many years ago, I recently returned with my wife to trek the Machame Route so she could experience this great adventure. We were not disappointed. From start to finish Maasai Wanderings were great to deal with and it was good to see the folks at Maasai Wanderings were as eager to please today as they were when I first traveled with them.”

“My whole experience from booking my trek to the actual trek its self was very professional with Maasai Wanderings. I knew I was in good hands when I my emails were responded to quickly and I was provided a list of answers to my enquires. The guides were very friendly and professional and had great English and were able to give my information on the landscape itself and also help encourage me every step of the way. I would not have made it to the top without their encouragement and singing! My tent and mattress were comfortable and the food was also great considering were climbing a mountain. Overall I would highly recommend climbing Kili with Maasai Wanderings. You can tell that the staff are happy and well looked after by the company as they are long standing team members. ”

for Kilimanjaro - Machame route, 7 day Private

“I was part of a group of 3 hikers wishing to climb Kilimanjaro via the Machame route in 7 days. The experience was great and landscapes so amazing. In fact it was the second time I climbed Kilimanjaro. I wanted to renew this experience because the first time the weather conditions was very cloudy the three first days and also I was not completely satisfied of the company I chose at that time.

As such, I selected Maasai Wanderings for the good reviews I had and also because it is part of the Kilimanjaro Porters Assistance Project (you can have more details here: http://www.mountainexplorers.org/) that was a concern for me after my first experience. And what I can say is that I have not been disappointed, everything was perfect from the beginning to the end.

We were guided by Julius and his team that I recommend. He is a very nice guy, likable, always calm, encouraging you and giving all information required when you need it. He is adapting to you, and most of the time the first days, slowing you down to maximize a progressive acclimatization. I was interested by flowers and history of Kilimanjaro (snow cover, geology) and this guy is a big library.

Food was very good, varied and always in good quantity. It is surprising to see what the cooker is able to do in such conditions. There was a big mess tent where all meals were taken when it was not possible outside. The cooker is cooking just in front of you. The tent had also two extension rooms on each sides dedicated for staff (relaxing/sleeping). It was funny to see that despite of the altitude, the coldness etc. they were always happy, smiling, talking all time etc.

Everybody was dressed properly and adapted to the mountain conditions, even for the shoes. This is important to note because I have been very sad when I saw few other porters from other companies dressed just with a tee-shirt with holes everywhere or not descent shoes. When we reached the last camp (Barafu Hut) at around 13:00, one of the porter was sick and Julius, the guide, decided to escort him down to the gate quickly. He was back to Barafu Camp few hours before we left the camp to climb the final step and came with us! Everybody in the team successfully reached the top Uhuru Peak and of course everybody was very happy. Once again it has been an excellent trip and experience. I keep a lot of good memories.

For these reasons I recommend clearly Maasi Wanderings, for the quality of the guiding, the food, the tents, the team, all the equipments provided (and in good shape).”

“Our team of 13, led by Julius and Elias, were incredible - they were 100% focused on giving us a brilliant time and getting us to the top - which they both achieved. The team's dedication was fabulous - we could not have had more attentive service, better food, more fun. Julius encouraged us to drink, drink and drink and we did not have any altitude problems (we didn't take Diamox). Every day was a different adventure - the changing nature and plant life was a pleasant distraction to the hours of trekking! Both guides were very knowledgeable on their animals, birds and plants. The day of the ascent was long but, with a slow pace, measured and the summit was achieved with the aid of Swahili songs and a lot of joking! All-in-all, I could not recommend this group more strongly. This was the best adventure and physical achievement of our lives and, at 49 and 55, respectively, Irina and I were well able to cope with the pace and the altitude - thanks to the wisdom and skills of the team. ”
