“Amos was our main contact and he was always quick to respond with any information that we needed as well as being very accommodating to our needs. The guides for the trek were also great, helping us along every step of the way. Would definitely recommend Migration for any of their offered trips or even for organising a custom itinerary!”

“My experience with Migration Venture Africa was nothing but positive. I planned a 7 day Kilimanjaro trip with a friend. They were great with communication via email and setting things up even before I arrived. Everyone that works for the company was very kind and helpful to us. Migration Venture Africa gave a very personal and reliable service that you can't find with the larger companies. They are also one of the only companies based out of the small town of Moshi rather than Arusha and all of their workers are locally hired. The company itself is also locally owned, which is not always the case with the bigger companies. Prior to our trek, we met with our mountain guides to do a precheck for gear and to talk about what to expect. We were picked up at our hotel by the guides and our porters, where we all went together to the mountain gate. The gear provided was sleeping bags (the NorthFace), sleeping pads, a tent, and a dining tent with table, chairs etc. Higher on the mountain they also provided hot water bottles for our sleeping bags to keep warm. The meals during the trek were great, with hot meals in the morning and night and a box lunch for a mid-day meal. There was always more than enough food and the variety of food was great too. All food was safely prepared and no one on our trek was ever ill from food or water. The guides were very attentive to our needs. Our entire group made it to the summit and back down with no troubles. We even made it to the top in time for the sunrise, which was amazing. If you are looking for a company that cares about you and not just money, then I would recommend MIGRATION VENTURE AFRICA LTD.”

“From Amos greeting us at the Kilimanjaro airport, to Guides, and all of the porters and our cook helping us on our 7 days hike up Mount Kilimanjaro.
They run a very competent and professional Kilimanjaro climbing company that supplied us with everything we needed to succeed on our summiting Mount Kilimanjaro hiking the Machame route. Our expectations were regularly exceeded with all aspects of our trip! The food was fantastic, the tents and sleeping bags kept us warm and the charming personalities of the whole team who took much enjoyment in helping us because they clearly love their jobs! We were treated amazingly well.
This is the only company I would use to climb Mount Kilimanjaro again.”
