BEST TEAM
Jun 2019
In June 2019, my husband and I materialized our dream of climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, a seven-day treking through Machame route. To make this experience possible, Materuni Tours was chosen and we should say that it exceeded our expectations (office and field staff).

Why Materuni?

Besides cost-benefit, attention was one of the most relevant points for taking the decision in favor of Materuni. All our doubts (a bunch of them! Hehe) were answered promptly, via email or whatsapp. This was a very important point because it made us feel safe and confident about their commitement and all the necessary gear to face the trail, besides, of course, the good sensation of being very well treated.

After hiring Materuni, we continued to be well assisted, what made us include the airport shuttle. Shabani, a very friendly person, picked us up at the airport. We were very tired after long flights and Materuni staff was very sensitive giving us a few hours to shower and rest before the briefing.

We stayed at the lovely Dorice’s place. It was great talking to her about the customs of Tanzania and some of her experiences. Dorice was very kind and made us feel warm welcomed.

The briefing took place at Materuni's office, where we met Ambrose and Joseph. We talked about their experiences on trail and more questions were asked, what made us adapt some things based on their tips and suggestions. In person, Ambrose and Joseph were very attentive too!

In the second part of the briefing, we had the pleasure of meeting our guides, Hamza and Joshua, who double-checked our gears for the seven days, taking notes about the missing items we needed to rent and also giving all the support to select the gears in the store. Hamza and Joshua were the BEST GUIDES we could have! Fantastic humans and super experient on the subject Kilimanjaro! Once again, we thank Ambrose and Joseph for their help and for our beautiful and essential little bottles of water. Next day, before the beginning of our adventure, we met all field staff, all very kind and professional.

EVERYONE OF THE TEAM who accompanied us during the 7 days in the moutain deserves a special recognition, so THANK YOU VERY MUCH! We had all the support, attention, help, good humor, professionalism, respect, kindness and good conversations we could had!

It was wonderful! We just want to say thanks once more and do recommend Materuni.

Hakuna Matata !!!!!!

Ludimila and William.

Best in the game!
Jun 2019 • Couples
Ambrouse and his team are sensational in getting you to the top with comfort and safety. We took the 7 day Machame route with legend guides Rama and Paul. The team made us feel at home and Babu’s cooking was some of the most delicious dishes we had while in Tanzania, with Nicko looking after us as well.

We can’t thank these guys enough for the tour and experience. Everything from our hire gear, transport and information was high quality. They respond quickly to emails and made us feel at ease and made sure we were well equipped before we began. A week we will never forget!!!!

Please don’t hesitate to book your tour through these guys as they will look after you and leave you feeling like you chose the best.

Thank you Legends!
