We are a large group of 8 friends from Paris and Barcelona who just completed the amazing Mount Kilimanjaro Trek with Jiwe adventures a really perfect Kilimanjaro Trekking Tour Operator. They were more than quick in answering our countless emails with lot of helpful advice in planning our trip.
From Edgar greeting us at the airport, to Moody, Inno and all of the porters and our cook helping us on our 7 day trek up Mount Kilimanjaro we were treated amazingly well.
I decided, along with my friends, to climb Kilimanjaro earlier this year. After some research on the internet I decided to use a company based in Tanzania called "Jiwe adventures".
Wonderful mountain-Heading i was capable of reaching at mountain Kilimanjaro using lemosho route,seeing various natural features such as rocks, volcanic cones in mawenzi.
We booked the 6 day budget Safari Tour and loved everything about it. The communication with Edgar (owner of Jiwe adventures) went smooth and easy. And it was the driver Best and the cook Brown that made this experience unforgettable!
