Here is what Jack from California had to say about our Kilimanjaro/Mt. Kenya/Safari:
"The leaders made considerable efforts to insure a great climb on Kenya and memorable trekking of the Circuit Route around the massif. Climbing guides especially were all amazing in knowledge of mountain craft, experience and patience.
I was able to make the summit in the company of clients and guides from all over the world; Canada, Germany, Holland, Kenya and the US. The backgrounds among all the people here are equally as varied and interesting."
Here is what Nicola from Australia, now living in London, had to say:

Kilimanjaro / Mount Kenya / Safari combines a wide variety of mountain and safari travel at a reasonable price, allowing you to do and see quite a bit in just 20 days. Please review the individual trip information below for more about what this adventure entails.
Mt. Kenya National Park: At its lower elevations, is a gorgeous montagne forest where many species of wild animals and birds abound. During the ascent, you enter alpine vegetation zones with myriad rare plants until, upon reaching the top, you discover a wind swept and gorgeous volcano with alpine lakes.
Leader and staff:During the trek and climb, our experienced guide is with you all of the way. Our skillful cooks prepare delicious, fresh, tasty food and hot drinks at least 3 times a day. Friendly and helpful porters carry all of your personal equipment , group equipment, and set up camp each day, so you can relax and enjoy the trip.
The trek: A unique and moderate summit circuit on easy trails. You do not have to walk on snow and the views of the high alpine scenery are superb.
Optional rock climb: Perhaps the best climb in all of Africa; 16 to 22 pitches on excellent rock that is "climbable" and not difficult. Most of the climb is moderate scrambling. There are a few technical moves, but the steep sections are short. You should be able to follow (but not lead unless you really want to, as our leaders are professional climbers) grades up to: North American 5.7, British Severe, UIAA (French) 5, and Australian 14.

Kilimanjaro is the highest peak in Africa at 5,895 metres/19,300 feet, is located in Tanzania; an easy and beautiful 9 day trek that offers something for everyone and is a rare opportunity to reach the summit on the uncrowded Umbwe walking route .
Kilimanjaro National Park: At the base of the mountain, the environment is beautiful and lush jungle, inhabited with wild birds and animals. As you trek up the mountain, the foliage changes and becomes more alpine. Arriving at the summit, you behold an active volcanic crater and small glacier.

The trek: A beautiful walk to Africa's highest summit. Kilimanjaro is on the equator with warm temperatures and is very accomplishable for the average person who enjoys hiking. The path we have chosen is off the beaten track, providing ample time to explore the mountain, the variety of foliage, and wildlife. Normally, you never step on snow and there is no climbing, only walking on easy trails. In case you wish to try higher mountains after this one, Kili is an excellent way to test yourself at altitude in a comfortable and warm environment, in order to learn how your body copes with 6,000 metres/19,000 feet. back to top
The Ngorongoro Lake Manyara Safari: Located in Tanzania's Ngorongoro National Park, it is often referred to as the "Garden of Eden"; two days of exploring a wide open grassland dotted with accacia trees and a plethora of big game near the deep Ngorongoro volcanic crater and Lake Manyara.
National Park: Famous for elephants, hippos, giraffes, rhinos, wildebeasts, zebras, gazelles and hundreds of exotic animals and birds. The site of a deep volcanic crater and the world's largest unbroken caldera, Ngorongoro Crater is the best self-contained safari destination in the world. Appreciate the increasingly hard to find sights and sounds of the unspoiled African bush, away from other tourists.
Leader and Staff: Our friendly and expert driver will lead us in a purpose-built land-rover, a very safe and good vehicle for easy game viewing, through the rooftop, of wild animals inhabiting one of the most majestic landscapes in the world. During our safari, our experienced guide is with you all of the way. Our skillful cooks prepare delicious, fresh, tasty food and hot drinks at least 3 times a day. The helpful staff are there to ensure you can relax and enjoy the trip.
Safari: Not only is this a rejuvenating rest between our two treks, but a rare opportunity to see stunning grasslands abundant with wildlife perched on the edge of the world-famous Ngorongoro Crater at the eastern edge of the Serengeti. In the evening, we will camp in comfortable lodges. Photo: Amboseli National Park, a herd of elephants in front of Kilimanjaro (Bill Weber).back to top
