We took the 7 Day Machame Route with Kiliwarriors Expeditions. We had decided on this route only because we had family who had completed the Machame Route before. After hiking we now want to come back to be able to do the Western Breach Route with Kiliwarrior Expeditions.
Our guides included Shedrack Alfred and Ephata Ayoub. They were there 150% of the time to support us and aid us in any way possible so that we would successfully and safely summit! We now consider them as family/friends for life since they shared such an epic journey with us and were there when we got engaged at the top of Uhuru Peak!
A HUGE shoutout to Mama Louis for cooking the best food in Tanzania period! He is very skilled at his craft and such a positive spirit to have during the hike. Also a shoutout to Kanini and Kilongo who went up with us for summit night and to Kilongo who brought up sparkling cider for us to drink and celebrate at Uhuru peak. Kanini is one of the most famous guides on the mountain and we felt extra safe having him summit with us since he has been climbing Kilimanjaro for 20 years.
Of course we also appreciated every single one of the porters and camp team as they played a huge role in getting us up the mountain. We couldn’t have done it without everyone’s help. Boaz, Ernest, Wilbert for sending us off on Day 1, Gerry for organizing the itinerary/schedule and all others were incredible.
We will be recommending Mt. Kilimanjaro and climbing with Kiliwarrior Expeditions to all our friends and family in the future!
