Amazing experience and staff

Mafie adventure organized an amazing adventure for us (group of 30 people). First for the ascent of Kilimanjaro. Thanks to the staff, we went to the top. And after they organized a safari like in our dreams, really dynamic to find every animals. We saw the big 5 and many others animals that was incredible. Thank you Mafie Adventure!!!

Professional and passionate

We climbed Mount Kilimanjaro with Mafie Adventures in August 2023. We chose 6-day Machame route. This route is characterised by wonderful and diverse environments and landscapes and permits decent acclimatisation. Mafie Adventures and Erastus welcomed us at the bus station and picked us up from the hotel the day after. The hiking was definetely worthwile, aslo thanks to the professional and very experienced guides, Wilfred and Oliver, who really helped us throurghout the climb.
Furthermore, equipment was good and the food was plenty and delicious. Everyone in our group (8 porters+2 guides+1 cook) was welcoming and caring. I highly recommend Mafie Adventures for climbing Mount Kilimanjaro also considering the competitive price compared to other companies that provide the same service. Also, it is a local company based in Arusha and we believe it's a good way to support local business instead of foreign companies working in Tanzania.
Some few general suggestions for future travellers:
- Tipping is important and considered almost mandatory (for all companies not just Mafie). Make sure you understand how tipping works before arriving
- Best choice is to fly to Kilimanjaro airport
- Ask for what equipment is included or not in order to avoid carrying unnecessary staff that will overload the porters
Good Luck!

We are happy having booked our 5 days Safari with Mafie Adventures. It was a great experience and the price was very fair! Erastus is very kind, honest and answered all our questions at any time. Everything was well organized. Food during the whole trip was amazing and plentiful- thanks a lot to Othoman! The camps and lodges were astonishing good and a great experience. Our guide Frank was professional and very motivated to inform us about the animals, country and the way of life of the Maasai. He tried hard to show us the "big5"!

Guaranteed experience of a lifetime!

What an amazing experience we’ve had for the past few days, thanks to Mafie Adventures. Since the beginning of contact, Erastus was constantly available for questions, while pre-arranging all different necessities for our 4-day safari tour. Our guide was such a great guy and a great driver as well, we didn’t feel unsafe one time. You felt his years of field experience throughout our trip, allowing us to get a unique safari exceeding all of our expectations! The fact that we could bring our own input into the safari, i.e. what time we wanted to leave in the morning etc, allowed for us to really have a great time. I would highly recommend booking with Mafie.

Excelent experience mainly for the staffs

Hello Mafie

The safari was great! Sam and Dickson were both AMAZING!
Sam is really experience tour guide and was always trying to help and fix the inconvenientes.
Dickson is a great human being and the best cooker and always wanting to make the best for us.
The tour was great and we saw many many animals and a cheeta attacking (twice) and I again give the credit to the experience of Sam!

The only thing is to guarantee all the alignments - such as private tent, private rooms before you go!

Serious, profetionals and well orginized to ensure you have an amazing experiences

I loved how punctual they were and very comprenhesive about I was so far away from home, then traveling all by myself, I could feel safe with them. The guide was very profetional and he really helped me to preparer my climbing and succes. And the crew was really charming and made me feel like at home. The porters are simply amazing and they deserve all our appreciation in all senses. Coming to Tanzania for trekking and climbing the Mont Kilimanjaro worths it and i would do it again sinces this place is magical.

The review below is the personal opinion of Florian and not that of SafariBookings.
Not a trustworthy provider, better pick one of the many others.

I booked a one-day trip to Ngorongoro Crater with Erastus and we agreed that we would meet the day before to make the payment. We met and Erastus told me that he might not be able to arrange the trip for me because other guests had changed their plans. However, he personally, sitting in front of me, promised to make it work and told me not to worry about it.

The same day, at 8 pm, he informed me that I could not do the safari the next day (NB: I had only come to Arusha for one day to do exactly this safari). Despite me calling a bunch of other operators, it was too late to find an alternative for the next day. I ended up not being able to do the safari that I had come for.

Don't trust Erastus. My whole trip to Arusha was useless because he promised things he couldn't keep.

Hello Florian
I hope this review finds you well the purpose of writing this is that other
clients who you were going to join doing two days safari that is Tarangire
and Ngorongoro crater so they advised themselves without involving me then
they told me on the day of the trip to start with Tarangire national
park on that day of Ngorongoro crater therefore you could not do the trip
because the day he wanted to do trip in Ngorongoro is differ with others
colleagues the day makes the trip overlapped one day and this was out of our ability because its joining group and you wanted day trip its not our fault as you have written review so for our side we always prefer to say sorry for all.
Best Regards
Mafie Adventures.
