  • Kilimanjaro - Marangu Route reviewer 1
    Written on February 12, 2014
    5.0 - Excellent

    By far the toughest trip i have ever done. We got hit by hail, snow, rain and minus 25 degrees weather, but we all made it to the top! incredible feeling once you reach the top of Africa! The guides and the porter team was incredibly helpful and really helped us all reach the top. You definitely need to be prepared for altitude sickness, sleeping in minus degrees, and have a very strong mental toughness to pull through to the end. At 5895 meters, the oxygen level is so low, that every step you take is exhausting, which makes the final hike up very tough! But in the end its just an incredible feeling!

    Excellent trip with a great group. Our guide was very laid back but knowledgeable and ensured we always went 'pole pole'. I'm glad we stayed in the huts but it was still cold at night. All of us made it to the summit (but not all to Uhuru Peak). The toughest thing I've ever done! Would I do it again- debateable, was it worth it- hell yeah!!

    The trip was well organised. Started with a great breifing and the hotel had us all sat together as a group for meals both before and after the climb which was a great way to get to know each other before we started and a good opportunity to say goodbye.

    Fantastic experience. The guides were superb and the company was second to none. Had the best time and tamed the beast. Highly recommended.
