“I did the Kilimanjaro 7 days-machame route with Enosa, and i could'nt be happier of how it went. Everything was perfect from the day they picked me from the AirPort and to the day i left. The owner Noel did everything to ensure i would have a good climb, and so did the guides and everyone involved in the actual climb. We were 5 climbers in the group and everyone of us made it to the top. So thanks for everything Enosa :)”
