The tour went very well. The tour leader was excellent and gave us all individual attention. Cannot thank the assisting porters enough for their enthusiasm and kindness, especially when a few of us were struggling. How they managed to rustle up our meals in challenging conditions, I really don't know. Nothing in the guidebook/brochure can prepare you for the intensity, both emotionally and physically, of the trip. The feeling of elation when you finally reach the summit was indescribable. I still have to pinch myself now...did I really do it?!! I would definitely recommend the longer route in order to acclimatise and definitely don't under estimate travelling back down either!!
The Zanzibar extension was a welcome break at the end of the door i.e warm dry beds and sunshine! Would have preferred to stay in the lodge for the 4 days though and just go on a daytrip to Stone town, rather than 2 days at the lodge and 2 days in Stone town. As a woman on my own, I was not fully confident walking around the town at night and was constantly approached.

Really enjoyed the trip, camping was very basic but the food was excellent. It's important to check the kit list and take everything you need. Amaan bungalows in Zanzibar very poor and needs looking at. Overall very happy. Our trip leader Chunga was incredible.

Thanks for all of your feedback and it’s great to know that you enjoyed your trip with us. I’m pleased to advise that we’ve recently moved all our groups to a new location for our beach stay in Zanzibar. The Sunshine Marine Lodge and Sunshine Hotel are two stylish and comfortable sister properties located in the beautiful north-east coast resort of Matemwe.

The Kili climb was exhausting ,but amazing , porters and Guide first class, and the scenery spectacular, walking poles are a must, and some energy bars or gels are much needed especially on summit day. The add on trip to Zanzibar, made a good contrast. Two days at Amaani Bungalows, beautiful, and two days in Stone town, full of History and interest. It was a pity that the rep in Zanzibar did not come when we first arrived as we wasted I/2 a day waiting to plan tours by which time half the group had gone and done their own thing and this made arrangements complicated . Overall a very good trip.

The tour up kilimanjaro could not of been any better, the guide's were exceptional and everything went down without a hitch.

When in zanzibar the accommodation was good but trying to organise trips was difficult unless down before leaving.

The trip was good and I was looked after on my journey. The only thing I was concerned about was the information given, which was at times different but i were never updated about this by explore. For example the paper work given to me before I left this was different slightly to the information when I got to the destination (itinerary). I thought it was just my information but others had the same problem. I would have liked to go on the Safari after my climb, which stated in the original itinerary that I will have that opportunity but that was not the case as I and others had to leave at 8am for our flight. Even though the itinerary stated I would have the morning free to rest or do Safari. I also felt very rushed at the summit, I was not a fast walker like the others so got to the summit 10 minutes after. It felt like a blur and felt rushed to take a picture and make my way back down.

Hi Marian, thank you for your feedback. We are very proud to work with local porter protection groups and, in consultation with them to ensure fair remuneration, we note in our trip information the full recommended tip amount. The safari you mention is only available if you are doing the trip as a standalone adventure, as you undertook the Zanzibar extension this is not included due to the time needed to make your flight departure. I am sorry you felt rushed at the summit, however, hanging around is not encouraged as there is a constant stream of people attempting the ascent. We will remind the trip leaders to allow an adequate amount of time to allow everyone to enjoy the feeling of accomplishment on having made it up the mountain!

Much harder than expected due to effects of altitude sickness. Make sure you have all the kit on the kit lists as you will need it. Better to have it and not use it than to need it on the mountain and not have it. Gets cold on a night towards the top and you need the layers for summit night. Take plenty of snacks and drink plenty of water. All water needs treating but chlorine tablets don't taste great. A pump with a filter is a better option. Tents are basic but do the job. Views are amazing so take a decent camera with you. Washing water is provided but baby wipes come in very handy. Overall a brilliant experience and one you will never forget. The Zanzibar add on was a welcome break at the end with a chance to chill out at two very different but both beautiful locations.
