  • Soon Sook
“"My Family had the pleasure of embarking on an incredible journey organized by this tour operator, which included a Kilimanjaro trek and an unforgettable safari experience. From start to finish, their meticulous planning and exceptional service made this trip an absolute dream come true. First and foremost, the communication with Joan was outstanding. From the initial inquiry to the final details, their team was attentive, prompt, and knowledgeable. They patiently answered all my family questions and provided valuable insights to ensure I had a clear understanding of what to expect throughout the trip. The guides and porters were not only highly skilled and experienced but also genuinely passionate about their work. They took great care of our group, ensuring our safety and well-being at every step of the journey. Their expertise and encouragement played a significant role in reaching the summit successfully. The accommodations provided were excellent. From cozy lodges to comfortable campsites, every location was carefully selected to offer a comfortable respite after a challenging day of trekking. The facilities were clean, well-maintained, and equipped with all the necessary amenities, ensuring a good night's rest and rejuvenation. After conquering Kilimanjaro, the safari experience was nothing short of extraordinary. The carefully curated itinerary allowed us to explore the breathtaking landscapes and witness the diversity of wildlife that Tanzania has to offer. From the vast Serengeti plains to the stunning Ngorongoro Crater, each destination provided a unique and awe-inspiring encounter with nature. We strongly recommend this local agency. . "”
Definitely the BEST!

“I signed up solo for Kili hike with this tour operator. I had the best experience ever. They take care of you and support you based on your ability. You are observed carefully from Day 1, your health and ability are tracked and you are matched with the guides to be able to successfully make it to the summit. It has been nothing short of a breathtaking experience and I personally learnt a lot from how they organize themselves and how they take care of every small thing. Our chief guide was Baraka and he is simply amazing! Very professional, friendly and highly experienced. All other guides were amazing too, Eric, Exaude, Julius, Rama and others.Food was amazing! Justin and Azzez did a great job as our cooks and they are simply great people who take into account all your dietary needs. Could not have finished the hike without the support of porters and campmasters. A suggestion would be to pay for a portable toilet to share and that helps a lot during the hike.There was not a single time that I felt low or as if support was lacking. All the guides are warm and friendly and they can understand a person very well. My guide carried a small bottle of coca-cola for me during summit day and gave it to me at the stella point for sugar needed. They are as thoughtful as this. They are very keen on everyone being successful and happy.”
it was just wonderful

“Travel with this tour operator was wonderful. All was good from the beginning until the end. During the preparation of my Kilimanjaro trip I got in contact with several agencies and finally I have chosen this company and Im just happy because I feel I made the correct choice.This 6 days climbing Kilimanjaro Experience by Marangu Route was just a life time experienceIt all was good. All the crew was professional, making medical check-ups twice a day, good food, nice and friendly staff, hot water bag for the cold nights, excellent service and mainly friendly staff talking with us all the way long JA special thank you to our amazing guides Victor and Selemon and without any exception to all members of the crew. Also to Anna, from the Office, that was really helpful and kind. Cheers”

Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro - Overview

Standing 5,895 meters tall, Mt Kilimanjaro is the world's highest free-standing mountain. The first recorded ascent of Mt Kilimanjaro was in 1889 by the two climbers Hans Meyer and Ludwig Purtscheller.

There are primarily four popular routes to climb Mount Kilimanjaro:

  1. Marangu Route - also known as the Coca Cola route because of its availability of cokes in the tea huts
  2. Machame Route - the second most popular route on the mountain after the Marangu Route
  3. Lemosho Route - known for its beauty and relatively few people
  4. Rongai Route - the only route that starts from the Northern side of the mountain, known for giving good opportunitues to spot wildlife during the first couple of days on the climb

The Marangu Route should be the easiest of the above four routes. Despite hereof the success rate is often higher on the Machame Route, probably because people taking that route are more prepared.

Other less popular routes available for climbing Kilimanjaro are:

  1. The Northern Circuit Route
  2. The Umbwe Route

Best Months to Climb Kilimanjaro

Jan to Feb and July to October are some of the best months to climb Kilimanjaro. The worst months are April, May and November due to a high level of precipitation. That said, due to the generally friendly climate it is indeed possible to climb Kilimanjaro all year round.

Safety While Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro

Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro is not dangerous, however, precautions certainly have to be taken as otherwise it may become dangerous. Please always follow the below recommendations when climbing Kilimanjaro:

  • We always recommend climbing the mountain in 7 days, as proper acclimatization is needed. Even if having chosen a 7 days climb you may still, for some reason, acquire altitude sickness. Therefore, please do familiaries yourself with how to treat and prevent altitude illness prior to commencing the climb.
  • Assess your climbing guide and porters before taking off. They have to appear professional and friendly and also posses the required knowledge and Kilimanjaro climbing experience.
  • There are a lot of fraud climbing companies present in Tanzania who do not have the required climbing permits and licenses. Please therefore only book with a company that have all the required authoritizations (in this regard it ought to be mentioned that Bookmundi only works with licensed companies that have all the necessary permits).
