Trekking and Safari Adventures gave me and my boyfriend a once in a life time experience and some awesome memories.
I choose to do an 8 day hiking tour on Kilimanjaro with my boyfriend. The crew we were assigned were always smiling and very efficient while setting up camp every night. The food was amazing and tailored to our needs. We felt well fed every meal and always had plenty of drinking water through out the day. The guide never rushed us and was very friendly. He always recommended how to dress and what we would encounter that day.
We loved that Trekking and Safari Adventures were able to accommodate us when we wanted to hike. We didn't have to wait for other people to leave for a tour. They ran on our time frame which is great. Trekking and Safari Adventures made sure we were well equipped with thermals, hiking boots, sleeping bags, extra clothes. The gentleman Simon met up with us at least 3 times before the hike to make sure everything was going well.
What more could you ask for?
Great food, friendly crew,well maintained equipment, awesome guides, runs on your time frame and memories of a life time! Not to mention the cost is fair compared to what we have seen online and offered in Moshi. We felt comfortable with the price and knowing we were helping out a local company.
Simon - the owner of the company plus a former porter and then guide on the mountain - always replied very fast, detailed and informative to my many questions via email. Because we were traveling in East Africa and only decided to climb Kilimanjaro on short notice, his quick, welcoming and uncomplicated style was very helpful.
I had injured my knee a few days before. But Simon was very flexible and it was no problem at all to shift our scheduled departure day even the day before we left.
After being asked if that was ok, we (my wife and I) got teamed up with a great international group. The day before we left we were introduced to our three guides (Paul,Jamal & mchome) plus our cook (Dickson). They gave us a short briefing and checked our gear and supplied us with anything that was missing - which in our case was a lot. All of the gear we got from Trekking and safari adventure (poles, backpacks, camel backs, summit jacket, pants, hat, gloves, sleeping bags, etc.) was in very good condition and fulfilled its purpose to our fullest satisfaction.
What stood out for me in this trip - apart from the stunning scenery - was the groove of our crew! Paul - our head guide and also a former porter - knows exactly how demanding the work of the crew (porters, cook, guides) is and you can really tell that he wants the best for them as well as for his clients. It fulfilled me with great joy and relief to see that Paul (on our trip) and Simon (in general) take good care of their employees. Their former experience on the "lower end" of the crew definitely helps them being good and respectful leaders in what they do.
I would highly recommend booking your Kilimanjaro-trip with Trekking and safari adventures if your looking for a sincere, local, honest and fun company that will bring you safely to the top and back! :)
