Outstanding company, staff and crew. Highly recommended.
Cannot praise George Mtaki, his staff and mountain crew highly enough. Absolutely fantastic, from pre-booking to the day we left Tanzania.
We booked a private climb for 2 (best friends, both females in our 30s, from Scotland, UK). We felt safe and we were treated wonderfully the whole time. All questions - and we had many! - were answered promptly and fully. Food and drinks were delicious. Tents were great. Pay a bit extra for the 5* package so you get the thick tent mattress - worth every penny. The price of our climb was very reasonable - the best for value and quality.
We both reached Uhuru Peak on 12th September 2014, thanks to the support and endless encouragement of our guide Gabriel, assistant guide Prescuse, and trainee guide Simon. Plus the support and care from Jeremiah our cook, Chassy our waiter and the best cup of tea maker in the world!
Please consider a fundraiser or at least a visit to Amani Children's Home in Moshi and Kilimanjaro Young Girls in Need school. This will change your life!
We put a full trip report on Kilimanjaro Brothers onto Trip Advisor (September 2014, in the name of YumboGirls) which you may find useful. We also put a number of videos on YouTube (search for 'Kilimanjaro Brothers Zoe Jac').
Please remember to tip your crew - by the end of the climb, you'll want to give them everything you have.
You will not be disappointed with Kilimanjaro Brothers!
Happy to answer any questions.
Zoe & Jac
