Great
5/5

I did the 8 day Lemosho route with Almighty Kilimanjaro which ended up being a solo trip due to unforeseen circumstances. Doing this climb solo was great as it allowed me to go at my own pace, taking as many or as little breaks as I wanted.

I really enjoyed this trip as my team were super helpful and amazing, and looked after me very well. My lead guide was Emanuel Mkumbo who was friendly and gave me lots of information about what to expect each day of the climb.

The porters were incredible and did such an excellent job of carrying and setting up camp each day. The cook kept me well fed, serving delicious two-course meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner!!

The team went above and beyond to make sure I was comfortable and safe during my climb; they did everything they could to help me reach the summit, "one team, one dream" as they say.

Not only would I recommend climbing Kilimanjaro, I highly recommend climbing it with Emanuel and his team as you will be in friendly and safe hands. I would climb Kilimanjaro all over again with this team, and tip them double what I gave them as they really deserve it!

Accommodating, full of energy
4/5

The porters really make the experience so much better, they try to cater to your every need and work so hard to get you to experience the summit and the beauty of the mountain. We did the 7 Day Lemosho route! Truly an experience of a lifetime. I cannot fault our team at all! They dedicated those 7 days to getting us up and making sure all our needs were catered to! This is also bearing in mind that I had never camped before in my life, so an all around new experience! I did donate some of my gear afterwards to the company, in hope that it would go to a porter that needed it, especially a women.

Machame route - Kilimanjaro. Great experience, would book again.
5/5

Booking the trip was pretty straight forward.
It was nice that the team came to complete gear check and briefing was the place I stayed. Rentals were sorted then also.
I enjoyed both John and Chukurus as our guides. They really looked after us and they were fun to be around with.

Very professional, friendly and hard working
5/5

We have just had an amazing time climbing Kilimanjaro with the company almighty Kilimanjaro. Our guides Dues and John were excellent they had a great knowledge of all aspects of the mountain there was no question they couldn’t answer. Despite Swahili being their first language they both spoke English fluently and were excellent at communicating with us as we were well informed to what was going on at all stages of the climb. The food was excellent at every meal we were served several courses of hot food which was delicious and water was made available to us at all stages of the climb. The team of guides, porters and chef were excellent they were very hard working and very friendly we were amazed at the service we were given on the mountain as it was excellent. The guides were great at helping us get acclimatised to the high altitude and in my opinion there is no chance we would have made it to the summit without them all in all we had an excellent trip would rate our experience a 10/10

Allowed me to feel comfortable throughout
5/5

I took the umbwe route… if you want to stay away from the crowds and enjoy more of the forests this route will lead you along the ridges until you clear the wood line. You’ll need a good level of fitness but don’t think you’ll need to be doing the Tour de France.

The team were exceptional, everyone of them played their part to ensure we had the right equipment. The guide displayed his knowledge and understanding of both the mountain and the needs for the customer.

I would highly recommend using almighty, I really have nothing negative to say about them. But from a personal note, when you come here to climb kilo pack sensibly. Don’t rely on the team to carry all your gear. In my opinion you shouldn’t be on the mountain if you can’t carry your own stuff, the guys have enough to carry with food, water, and camping equipment.

Organised, friendly and safe people who look after you do well!
5/5

Excellent tour in the capable hands of Emanuel Mkumbo and Issa Mbwambo who looked after me fantastically! I felt so safe but also pushed to the limit on this trek.
I cannot recommend this enough and with Emanuel and Issa you know you’ll be in the best team on the mountain.

Great value, and great execution for an optimal Kilimanjaro Trek
5/5

The trek was well organized, and went much better than planned. The guides were well informed and fun to be around. The cook and waiter made us feel comfortable 1000s of miles from home, and the porters did an incredible job, especially in ensuring camp was set up before we arrived.

Excellent Trip
5/5

My partner and I absolutely loved our Mt Kilimanjaro trek.
Our team were absolutely amazing and looked after us so well. They made sure we were successful in making it to the top and did everything they could to help us.

The camping experience was seamless thanks to their tireless work.

The food and service was perfection.

Our 2 guides looked after us very very well. They were a wealth of knowledge, teaching us about the mountain as well as some beginner Swahili

The whole crew made our trip so much fun!!!

We couldn't have done it without the help of our fabulous crew!!
So thank you to:
Our guides Emanuel and Issa
Martin our cook
Anasi our waiter
Our incredible team of porters; Majala, Kanaa, Manase, Julius and Michael

Great partner to fulfill your dreams
5/5

We can fully recommend to climb the Kilimanjaro with the almighty Team. The organisation off-mountain as well as on the Mountain was perfect. The communication with the Almighty director Rashid was easy via Mail and WhatsApp. He answered our questions fast and was flexible with our wishes like date of departure and extra nights in the Hotel before or after the climb. On arrival we were picked up on time by our driver Raphael, who also showed us the town of moshi the next Day and drove us back to the airport on our last Day. At the salinero Hotel, where we had a relaxing stay with delicious breakfast and Dinner before and after the climb, Rashid introduced us to our head guide Emanuel. Before departure, Emanuel checked our luggage to see if anything is missing. With Emanuel, the assistance guide Issa, the chef Martin and the porters Feya, Haji, Youness, Kelvin, Julius and Kanaa, we had an amazing time on the Kilimanjaro. Emanuel and Issa made the trip very enjoyable, despite the sometimes tiring hikes, and were like friends to us. They are very knowledgable about the flora and fauna of kilimanjaro. They made us reach the peak by their constant Motivation and help with even carrying our daybags in the long and strenous summit night. The Chef Martin prepared delicious breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and even snacks in the afternoon, so we were never hungry. Our tent was large enough for the two of us and equipped with mattresses as well as a table and two chairs. All in all, we had a great time under the guidance of Emanuel and the whole almighty Team and would recommend it to people who are looking for an adventure and don't mind the hardships of climbing a 5895m tall mountain.
