Kikuletwa Hot Springs

Reviewed By GG-CHS - Charleston, South Carolina

It is a beautiful location to see. That is about all there is. This is a barely warm spring where the actual swimming area is. The water felt cool upon entering, and you will immediately be greeted by hungry fish. Considering the distant location & long, slow, dry, dusty ride, I will not return or recommend visiting this area.

Having a group of 6, completing medical electives in Zanzibar and Arusha, Erick was seamless in both organising a competitive price for us and organising a great itinerary of both Kilimanjaro (Rongai 7 day) and 4 day safari (tarangire, serengeti 2 day and Ngorongoro crater), to top this off between our successful trek and safari Erick kindly invited us and the mountain team for a feast at his house.
The trek was great, with real highlights being the team that helped us get there, great food, great morale builders like local songs sung with us before most days we climbed (and during our summit climb). the team's energy and welcoming nature truly made the climb the great experience it was. Our guides were Andronus and Amedeus, with our chief guide being Frumence. Watch out for Frumence, knowledgable and attentive guide he is, he won't hesitate to cheat in card games in the dining tent!
Although we had booked for 7 day (allowing 2 attempts for summit day) we had actually completed the trek in 6, smoothly Erick and Frumence organised us an extra night of accomodation at our hotel, and thankfully gave us a rest and organisation day before we commenced our safari. This was communicated in full by Frumence, and gave us the option to stay on the mountain another day - but i think we were all ready for a hotel shower!
Our Safari was great with guide Emmaneul, very adaptable to what we wanted to see that day and answered all of our questions, we all had a great time on safari and really have no qualms or complaints here.
Lastly - having lost my credit card earlier in my travels - Erick was extremely helpful in picking it up from the post office in moshi whilst i was off on safari and meeting me with my travel companions bag at our hotel in Arusha from where we set off to continue our adventure.
Overall a great experience had by all of us, couldn't recommend joining safari more!

Lake Chala

Reviewed By piedresybarro - Oviedo, Spain

We camp there for one night. The camping site is amazing, and the facilities are fully equiped and clean. The staff is very friendly and the food is ok. Dinner in the restaurant, in the night with the lake down there, is really nice.

I just returned home from completing the 6-day Machame route to Mt. Kilimanjaro. The trip was great- very difficult, but completely worth it. Booking was made easy with the quick responses and clear information. Our guides, Tino and Fanuel, were fabulous; they were communicative, supportive and helpful. The chef prepared good food, the Porters kept our gear safe and dry, the route was beautiful and we went at a great pace the entire trek... and we summited! I would highly recommend this company to anyone looking to hike Mt. Kilimanjaro.

Rock-explorer Tours

Reviewed By manus s

As an experienced traveler i have rarely met someone as hospitable and welcoming as George from Rock explorer.
A friend of mine got me in touch with rock explorer to organise a safari for a fair price. George is well organised, answered my mails quickly and met with me in person to discuss the trip.
Not only does he organise your trip very professionally and makes sure everything is tailored to your needs, he goes above and beyond to give you an incredible authentic experience!
He welcomed me (+ 2 of my friends) into his house for a home stay of 2 days! We went to the market with his friends and all cooked local food together. He also helped me on my way for my further travels, got me a busticket whilst i was on safari and dropped me off at the busstation. The last night he invited me to go a concert of one his favourite artists together in moshi and we partied as friends!
I sincerely recommend rock explorer to organise you safari / kilimanjaro / etc… You get much more then just a well organised trip! Thanks again george! see you again in Amsterdam or Moshi!

Olpopongi - Maasai Cultural Village & Museum

Welcome to "Olpopongi" Maasai Cultural Village & Museum - the first authentic Maasai Boma with Maasai-Museum & overnight facilities in Tanzania. "Olpopongi" provides a unique Maasai & Wildlife experience in the West-Kilimanjaro Maasailand; Just 74 km from Moshi and 85 km from Arusha. Our aim is YOU to share the authentic Maasai life & culture in a 100% traditional built village (Boma) with a unique museum, rather than taking tourists to private Maasai-Villages and destroy the Maasai native homes, behaviors and environment. Our Eco-Tourism Tours do provide the maximum respect to the Maasai tribe and a maximum education & excitement to our valuable clients.

My parents and I had the pleasure of staying overnight at Olpopongi on Christmas Eve. We had the Village to ourselves. The Maasai took great care in making sure we were comfortable and enjoyed our time there. The huts are definitely a different experience but still sanitary and clean. Make sure you bring a mini flashlight though as it can be quite dark inside once the sun goes down. The shower/bathroom facilities were clean and worked great. Additionally, the food was fantastic and they were able to cater to allergies and restrictions. It's no luxury accommodation but the experience is memorable and something you should try at least once. We had a great time.

I can not imagine better guide...He took care of everything and made our trip unforgettable experience. I can not recommend Ramson high enough.If anybody needs guide for Kilimanjaro, do not hesitate to contact Ramson Swai and his company Lava peak adventures.
