Emma's review for another Migration Venture Africa Ltd tour
“Climbing Kilimanjaro was always going to be an exceptional experience, and it certainly lived up to that. The climb itself was challenging but incredibly rewarding - the support team were dedicated, friendly and professional, ensuring that I had everything I required to succeed.
I was recommended Migration and Kili Expedition through a Tanzanian friend, and was blown away by the level of support given by Amos (the director) outside of the actual climb - personally helping me with my onward travel arrangements and other logistical requirements. It really was like being with a close friend and I thank him for that. It made my overall experience in Moshi and the surrounding area something truly memorable.”

Lieke's review for another Migration Venture Africa Ltd tour
“We had a very well organized Kilimanjaro trek with Migration Venture Africa. Our guides, porters and cook were with us all the way from the moment we started off our trek. They took excellent care of my sisters and me on our epic journey to Uhuru peak. The trek is not easy and it took proper planning, excellent equipment, and proper nourishment. The crew under chief guide Vitalis inspired us to the top, helping us when we faltered and showing us the best way to tackle the Lemosho trail and sharing information about the sights of Kilimanjaro.I have to commend Musa our camp cook for the delicious meals. You are an incredibly good quick.I definitely recommend Migration Venture Africa.”

Nigel's review for another Migration Venture Africa Ltd tour
“I was so impressed by the organisational capacity of the owner of Migration Kili Expeditions and Safaris on my expedition to Kilimanjaro that I asked him to create another custom-made safari for me in which I not only visited Tarangire, Serengeti, Ngorongoro but saw the Olduvai gorge - the birthplace of humanity. The guides on both expeditions were exceptional : Rogath Ephren Mtuy- who not only holds the world record for ascent to the summit of Kilimanjaro and return to Marangu park in 14 hours and 50 min , but is an expert on the local plants and flowers and their healing properties or other uses. Cyprion , my guide on the safari , not only looked after me - erecting tents, managing a superb cook, maneuvering his jeep according to my whims as a photographer , but had a depth of knowledge about, and respect for all the animals and their way of living and being . Both guides clearly loved their work and their courtesy and charm were outstanding.
As an older lone traveler , journalist and photographer, being explicitly catered to , this experience was way beyond expectations : not just what nature had to offer and my increased understanding and respect for other species, but in my trust of the organizer and guides who showed a responsiveness and intelligence, a depth of caring.”
