“We went with Kilisa tours based in Moshi, this was my second trip to Tanzania, as I was here with my 16-year-old son on October 2017 ... It was memorable and unforgettable, promised to come back and so I came with my 23-year-old daughter this year. This visit was as good as the first. As the title of the review states. I would rate it all this local tour company if it were possible.
We arrived to check in early, meet the group we were sharing the experience with and they were awesome, got geared up and then started our adventure
We did the 6-days trek via the Machame route which is a very beautiful scenery and it was worthy every minute. The landscapes are really amazing. The hiking is tough but thanks to the guides who were fantastic and reassuring and did put our minds at ease and answered questions while gave information every step of the way.

The porters were Incredible
Fresh, delicious meals everyday made the adventure even better. And shout out to our chef Juma a.k.a Mama Mayoo, lol that’s was what we were told to call him
The WHOLE CREW were friendly and experienced had so much energy and they made everything funny and exciting! [They seem genuinely glad to be of service to you] as they provided a great experience for us. They made my daughter feel like a queen and went above and beyond their role and made us feel relaxed and comfortable with the whole trek

definitely worth every penny
The best part was the experience, because this is really a lifetime experience that we will not forget. We highly recommend this event for those seeking a safe, but breath-taking, experience in Kilimanjaro mountain Climb.”

“Kilisa Tours & Safaris is really a perfect tour operator and we were able to contact from the email to the personal WhatsApp-communication with Naick

Shawn and I spent about 2 weeks in Tanzania, with arrangements made this local tour company who supplied our guide Bacari and Tammy Throughout the Mountain and Chris during our safari and everything was taken care off

porters/cook. Our trip was spent climbing Kilimanjaro 8-Days via Machame Route while we got the chance to Spend a night at Crater Camp during descent and spent 5-Days visiting various animal parks and that include Lake Manyara, Siringet, Tarangire and Ngoro Ngoro but we also we had one day to tour around Moshi town before we departure. We’re so happy we had a great experience with this company.

During our safari we saw more animals and beautiful scenery than we ever thought we would, everything was just thrilling.

And during the climb, well ...It was challenging but worthy the experience besides I asked Bacari and he said All ages and all types climb and summit, so don't let that detour you from trying. Approach with common sense and respect the mountain [Fact] Lol

Okay Why do I recommend this company? So far Kilisa’s Team were attentive, friendly and extremely kind ever since we arrived everything was great and from the experience we had with it feels like it’s their priority to continue providing top-notch service to customers like you always which is I highly recommend you and you and you

Besides they offer the best prices and the highest quality Briefly, everything was really great!

It was truly an amazing wondrous experience.! In the end, climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro was one of the best experiences in my life.”
The tour operator responded on :

“I was able to email and book the complete itinerary from Ireland with excellent communication from Naick. Having never been to Tanzania before I didn't quite know which is which

Upon arrival at the airport we were greeted by the generous man by the name of Nickson. He honestly couldn't be more welcoming and friendly. He leaded us to the transport. His English was very easy to understand, His driving skills were excellent and we had a great time with him in the car not only upon the arrival but also the departure day

Since this was our first to in Tanzania-Kilimanjaro, I cannot write this review without mentioning the Best guide of all time Bakari and Bryson Not only are they great at their jobs but they are super friendly and insanely polite. Plus, we didn't have one complaint about the food. The food was amazing and for that I would especially point out Kulwa [chef].

In short the whole crew was more than helpful yet made sure we were always ok with everything and anything we needed and they were nice and attentive to us the whole time and few of the crew actually became friends during our course of Kilimanjaro

Along with Ramadhan, He was like the master of all song I can say! He kept the party alive for us during the time we were at the mountain!! It was fun singing and dancing with the crew I promise he could win Kilimanjaro Idol, 

I’m not saying climbing Kilimanjaro Mountain was easy. Cause honestly it was difficult at some point and challenging but I’m saying with the right choice of the company as Kilisa Tours that got great crew makes the whole experience worthy and somehow easy

After the summit we had five days left with to Tanzania and due to the top notch service we had at the mountain we decided to also go on a 3- days safari to Serengeti National Park and Ngorongoro and a day trip a chemka hot spring after. Nothing went wrong the whole experience was Incredible
Our only real complaint the entire time was that had to leave get back home to get back to our jobs. LOL!

will be ungrateful if I didn’t give the special thanks to our guide, porters and cooker from Kilisa Tours without you this couldn’t be done. Thank you very much our friends. It was a trip of a lifetime and We were definitely not disappointed, All thanks to Kilisa and I would highly recommend it to you”
The tour operator responded on :

We love to read reviews filled with feelings and love like your! We are so pleased to hear that you really had an amazing experience

We will be very happy to welcome you again

Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro - Overview

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

Mount Kilimanjaro is located within Kilimanjaro National Park giving climbers an opportunity to spot wildlife during primarily the first day of your Kilimanjaro trek.

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

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:

  1. We always recommend to climb 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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).

We wish you a fantastic climbing experience on Mount Kilimanjaro!

Bon Voyage!
