I am so glad we booked with Kiliholidays! Mack, the owner of the tour company, was excellent in communicating with me via email! He was quick to respond to all of my questions and concerns. We booked two tours: Mt. Kilimanjaro 6-day Marangu route and also a 3 night/4 day safari. Both were amazing and unforgettable experiences! For Mt. Kilimanjaro tour: what can I say, we LOVED our guides Paroko and Baracka!!! They were so friendly, encouraging, helpful and wonderful to talk to! Our porters and cook were also fantastic! Perhaps bring an extra blanket to keep you warm during the cold nights as the sleeping bags they provided could have been better, but other than that, we had a great time! For our safari, we went to Tarangire, the Serengeti, and Ngorongoro Crater. Each park was beautiful and our guide, Thomas, was excellent! He was able to find so many animals for us. It was crazy how sharp his eye was! We saw the big 4 on the first day thanks to him! We stayed at Farm of Dreams Lodge andTukaone Camp. WOW!!! Loved both!!! Loved the comfort of a wonderful hotel at Farm of Dreams Lodge and the awesome experience of “glamping” at Tukaone!!! Very glad we booked with Kiliholidays! Very transparent, trustworthy company that delievered what they promised in our discussions!

Communications were smooth and planning with this company made me no troubles. The hiking itself was also hustle-free, guides were proffesional, chef was cooking tasty, porters did their work properly. So our way to summit was easy-going (and succesful too). Reccomended
