“During July 2019 I visited the Maldives as a solo traveler. The Island Hopper tour was perfect for my intent to experience the real flavor/culture/people of the country and not the artificial environment of resorts. I arrived and was met by Shaffaf who was the perfect guide/host to hotels, ferries, experiences across 5 islands. I love Maldive island life--even more so after the busy arrival city of Male. I especially love the FREEDOM to set my own itinerary on each island after local representatives warmly welcomed me at each island ferry and presented the options of their island. Diving, snorkeling, fishing, kayaking, visiting the homes of locals, beach time and just sharing hours of lazy conversation with the locals was priceless. After returning to the USA, my heart is still in The Maldives!!”

“This was a great booking. Our villa was more than we imagined! We were able to cook our own food in the kitchen and the porch was perfect for reading and doing art. The hosts were generous and kind. We loved Montezuma and found it to be very chill. The people were genuine and sincere. Despite rain and a cancelled tour to Tortuga Island, we loved every minute of our trip. Recommend renting an ATV to explore all over the southern part of the Nicoya Peninsula. There are plenty hikes by the beach and to the water falls that are full of animals and beauty. The people of Montezuma made our trip though, everyone was willing to talk and share information. I would highly recommend booking with Book Mundi.”

About The Marangu Route:

The Marangu Trek is the most popular route up Mt Kilimanjaro. Despite the human traffic, it can be fun to come together with other international like-minded travellers. This route has a well-defined path and accommodation in huts, resulting in a "climber-friendly trekking experience." The Marangu Trek is a scenic route with good views of Mt Mawenzi Volcanic Cone and excellent chances for viewing wildlife. The route offers moderate climbing from the starting point to the Kibo huts followed by a more strenuous path to reach the summit.

 

Additional Information:

Physical Demand: Machame Route is physically demanding and requires people with some trekking experience as tracks are strenuous.

Age Restrictions: Children under the age of 10 are not allowed.
