The incredible Burigi Chato National Park--- TANZANIA SAFARI
This park have many animals that you can spot on the game drive they are far close than in the other national parks I visited in Tanzania. I encountered lots of time spending when in other parks than in Burigi National park! Looking for animals though was not terribly bad but it consumed time during the drive after entering the park.

Woooow Zanzibar
If not for Burigi Chato Safaris I wonder how my Zanzibar experience would have been. Because I learned about the Island from a song in Slovenia singing “Beautiful Island in Africa” Burigi Chato Safaris helped me meet Africa and Zanzibar let me talk about Zanzibar's experience with Zanzibar! I booked one of the packages. Everyone was friendly and I enjoyed it. I had a budgeted budget thus why I never wanted expensive accommodation and they gave me the options. From the get get-go, this company was awesome.

Incredible Safari with BURIGI CHATO SAFARIS
I have always wanted to do Serengeti since I was a kid. The movie Lion King inspired me. As I was booking my ticket to Tanzania where Serengeti is I saw an Island named Zanzibar! I as well hooked it up on social media and the entire internet I was excited to know that after Safari I can relax by the beach with clear waters with no perms or any stones. I then found Burigi Chato Safaris which pledged to help me. The chat I had with them was very detailed answering every bit and inch of my questions. I was very informed even before agreeing to book with them (Then eventually it was the reason to why I wanted to book with them) they answered all my questions. I got in the safari car and everything was well planned from the lunch box during the exit day from town to the park to the last day when the managing director Geoffrey met us after our safari.

Amazing Kilimanjaro Experience with Burigi Chato Safaris Co L.T.D
There is something amazing that I want to tell everyone here reading this review! I had to write because you have to see it! Doing Kilimanjaro with Burigi Chato Safaris is awesome! I will tell you this: these guys are organized for every trip I did with them they were amazing. From trip planning to its delivery, the itinerary as planned was amazing! Everything went as planned! I liked the few surprise moments including the in-town routes to go to a restaurant and a few bars I was given an office car! The Burigi Chato office is friendly I booked online after being recommended by friends therefore, I was a stranger I became easily a friend because they were friendly!

OUR KILIMANJARO ROUTES ( WITH PRICES )

1. ****MARANGU ROUTE****

A. 5 DAYS MOUNT KILIMANJARO CLIMBING - VIA MARANGU ROUTE --- 1250 usd
b. 6 DAYS MOUNT KILIMANJARO CLIMBING - VIA MARANGU ROUTE --- 1450 USD

ABOUT MARANGU ROUTE

The Marangu route is also referred to as the "Coca-Cola" route, as it is considered to be the easiest path on the mountain, given its gradual slope and direct path. It is the oldest and the most well established route on the Kilimanjaro. This is the only route which offers sleeping huts in dormitory style. Guests are supplied with mattresses and pillows, but sleeping bags are still required. The huts have communal dining halls, basic washrooms and toilet.
Short time frame of the route makes altitude acclimatization fairly difficult. The route approaches Mount Kilimanjaro from the southeast. Marangu is unfortunately less scenic than the other routes because the ascent and descent are along the same path. It is also the most crowded route for that reason. BURIGI CHATO SAFARIS CO Ltd® offers Marangu Route climbing for five and six days climb. The difference being five days climb does not have an acclimatization day on day three at Horombo Hut.

6 DAY MARANGU ITINERARY

DAY 1
Marangu Gate to Mandara Hut
Elevation (ft): 6,046 ft to 8,858 ft
Distance: 8 km/5 miles
Hiking Time: 4-5 hours
Habitat: Rain Forest
We depart Moshi for Marangu Gate for the necessary formalities before beginning our trek. The hiking trail begins by ascending a beautiful, tropical rain forest. At the upper edge of the forest line, we have the opportunity to see blue monkeys. The trail then widens to expose beautiful hillsides until we reach Mandara Hut.

DAY 2
Mandara Hut to Horombo Hut
Elevation (ft): 8,858 ft to 12,205 ft
Distance: 12 km/7 miles
Hiking Time: 6-8 hours

Distance: 5 km/3 miles
Hiking Time: 1-2 hours

Horombo Hut to Kibo Hut
Elevation (ft): 12,205 ft to 15,430 ft

At Gilman’s point (18,600 ft), you will be rewarded with the most magnificent sunrise you are ever likely to see coming over Mawenzi Peak. Finally, we arrive at Uhuru Peak- the highest point on Mount Kilimanjaro and the continent of Africa.
After spending a few moments taking in the plains of Africa and your accomplishment, we descend to Horombo Hut. Later in the evening, we enjoy our last dinner on the mountain and a well-earned sleep.

2. ****MACHAME ROUTE****

A.6 DAYS MOUNT KILIMANJARO CLIMBING - VIA MACHAME ROUTE --- 1500 USD
B.7 DAYS MOUNT KILIMANJARO CLIMBING - VIA MACHAME ROUTE --- 1650 USD

ABOUT MACHAME ROUTE

The Machame route, also known as the "Whiskey" route, is the most popular route on Kilimanjaro. Machame’s draw is in its scenic beauty. However, the trail is considered difficult, steep and challenging, particularly due to its shorter itinerary. Therefore this route is better suited for more adventurous folks or those with some high altitude, hiking or backpacking experience.
The route approaches Mount Kilimanjaro from the south, beginning with a short drive from Moshi to Machame Gate. The path leads hikers through the rain forest to Shira Plateau. Here, many of Kilimanjaro’s routes converge. Then the route turns east and traverses underneath Kilimanjaro's Southern Ice Field on a path known as the Southern Circuit before summiting from Barafu. Descent is made via the Mweka route.
BURIGI CHATO SAFARIS CO Ltd® offers Machame as a seven day group climb or as a six day private climb. The six day variation combines days four and five, going from Barranco Camp to Barafu Camp without staying at Karanga.

Near Stella Point (18,900 ft), you will be rewarded with the most magnificent sunrise you are ever likely to see coming over Mawenzi Peak. Finally, we arrive at Uhuru Peak- the highest point on Mount Kilimanjaro and the continent of Africa.
From the summit, we now make our descent continuing straight down to the Mweka Hut camp site, stopping at Barafu for lunch. The trail is very rocky and can be quite hard on the knees; trekking poles are helpful. Mweka Camp is situated in the upper forest and mist or rain can be expected in the late afternoon.
