Wonderful experience climbing Kilimanjaro
It is impossible to put in to words the incredible experience we had climbing Kili, Lemosho Route, with Kilimanjaro Economy Safari. The guides, Hadji and Mariki, were amazing…helpful, friendly, encouraging, professional, adapting to our needs and pace. They really kept us going. Hadji’s experience on the mountain made us feel safe. Mariki was the assistant guide and got me to Uhuru peak. He felt like a brother. However, the entire mountain crew was amazing…fun to be with and they served and helped us beyond our wildest expectations. They were always looking to help and encourage us in any way they could, always with a smile. It was an exhilarating experience and we couldn’t have done it without the entire team.
The food was fantastic. Who would have thought that you could have such incredible meals at 14k feet. We had delicious food every day and we looked forward to our fresh soup every night (we still talk about the best soup ever). Though at times we had little appetite due to the elevation, Kenny kept encouraging us to get the necessary calories with a smile and friendly word.
We had planned to do the Lemosho route over 8 days but did it in 7. We loved the route. The monkeys and incredible diversity in terrain and vegetation were stunning. The stars at night were indescribable..and the sunrise on summit morning was…well you have to experience it. It was only my wife and me wit the mountain team, which allowed us to go at our own pace. We are just average 55 year olds, in decent shape but not marathoners. It was definitely a challenge but very doable.
Kili Economy was great all the way through. There are so many tour options and I explored dozens before choosing. I am very glad we landed with Kili Economy. Edward was always quick to respond to questions, professional and friendly, one of the big influences in deciding to go with this tour company. The value for the money was amazing. We felt like we were part of the Kili Economy family. The base camp they provided for accommodation was very basic (simple, no wifi and 10 minutes from town) but safe and clean. We decided to get a hotel room in town the night we arrived back, simply to spoil ourselves after an exhilarating but exhausting week.
Following the trek up Kili, we did a 5 day safari with them to the four major parks in northern Tanzania. It was nice to have a seamless transition from the trek to the safari. The accommodations they chose for the safari were some of the best and most unique we’ve stayed at anywhere and added to the beauty of the safari tour.
We are very thankful for the Kili Economy team. It was an experience we will never forget. I think you would be hard pressed to find a tour with a better combination of professionalism, friendliness, service and value for your money, I would definitely recommend them.

I climbed mountain Kilimanjaro via the Machame route with Kilimanjaro Economy Safari. The experience was unique and so amazing...….! The things were very well organized from the first day to the last one. Our guide Haji was so wonderful he knew what he was doing and explained the things very brief and correct. the meals were so delicious and the porters were so strong and kept encouraging us time to time. I have so much to say for this family but I just want to Thank them all for how they treated us was beyond our expectations. If I would have a chance to recommend Kilimanjaro Economy Safari as the best tour agent, I would have done that a million times....!!!

Super trip with a fantastic mountain crew from guides to porters. The route was varied and stunning and any flora or fauna we encountered the guides were able to identify. Mwene our lead guide and Brown our second guide made us feel relaxed and safe and ensured we acclimatised correctly with good interesting hikes which included lunch, tea stood and stunning views. With a relaxed attitude we often left camp slightly later than the other teams and had a leisurely pause and the path to ourselves. Julian the chef cooked some amazing food including currys chips pizza and tasty veg dishes. Summit day was tough but with Mwene at the helm we took it slow but steady and reached the summit in 7 hours. The expertise of the guides and the friendliness and hard work of the rest of the team made it possible for us to summit and have a good holiday.

The best in Tanzania!!!
We had a phenomenal experience with Kilimanjaro Economy Safari climbing the Marangu Route (6 days). The guides were highly professional; every day they conducted a medical check to make sure we were all feeling alright, and helped ensure that we were taking care of ourselves properly. They fed us well, and provided all sorts of interesting facts and motivation to help get all of us up the mountain. In our group of 10, all of us made it to the summit! Our guides were also all Tanzanian/locals, which was great. Some other companies use Americans to lead their trips, which seemed unnecessary. The locals knew the mountain better, were fantastic ambassadors for their country, and in general just fun. I would highly recommend Kilimanjaro Economy Safari for anyone looking for climb Kili!! For what it's worth, we purchased the trip through the website The Clymb and were able to get a somewhat substantial discount that way. Might be worth exploring

Fantastic Safari! We visited Tarangire, Serengeti and Ngorogoro crater with our amazing driver and guide ben. we then visited Zanzibar islands with him. His knowledge was superb and he looked after us very well. We saw hundreds of animals and the geographical features were awe inspiring. The lodges we stayed at were beautiful and all the staff everywhere were so welcoming. I would thoroughly recommend Kilimanjaro Economy Safari and our wonderful driver Ben.

Amazing time in Tanzania!!!
I am writing my recent break journey to Tanzania. I had amazing and awesome time in Tanzania. Oh my God. I wish i could stay there in Tanzania more because the treatment I had was no more than a chief guest in a huge function. Thanks to Kilimanjaro Economy Safari for organizing my trip, everything was so perfect. I got unforgettable memory in my life concerned Tanzania because Tanzania people a so lovely and they do real care about people, love and nature. Good enough i learned a little bit Swahili language and Tanzanian culture. We went 5 days mt. Kilimanjaro climbing and trekking marangu route and 8 days safari ( lake manyara, Ngorongoro plus Zanzibar). We got a time to see among BIG 5 animals. Happy that we found Kilimanjaro Economy Safaris, who treated us life families. Highly recommended to all travelers to organizing safaris and trekking with mori tours and Safaris

marvelous experience made by Kilimanjaro Economy Safari
Definitely one of our best experiences! Safari was very well organized by Edward Lazaro from The Kilimanjaro Economy Safari Team who always answered all our questions right away! Everything went smooth like planned. We had just the right amount of time in each national park (Tarangire, 2 days Serengeti, Ngorongoro) and were also happy with our accommodations. For any questions during the safari Msondo & Mwene were available 24/7.
We were extremely lucky with our guide Haji who found all kinds of animals (even lion cubs, when a cheetah was hunting, all Big 5, etc.). Not only he gave us many interesting insights but also he was great fun. We could ask him anything and had long & very interesting conversations about the country, culture, animals and the Maasai.
i recommend Kilimanjaro Economy safari as the best in Tanzania
