Kili Hike and Safari early July 2014

Hi,

I'm after a bit of advice really. There will be 4 or 5 of us hiking Kili and then 3 extras to join for about a 6 day safari after. Would like to use the same operator for everything. have got some quotes from ATR and are a bit pricey but I know they'll supply a good product. Does anybody have any suggestions?

ATR are in fact an overseas agent who will subcontract their Kili business to a local operator.

If you go to the right of this forum top questions 4th bullet down you will see a list of in country operators most actually living in Arusha. To me they will offer a better more tailored made trip than ATR.

For Kili I would use either Zara or Shah local operators based in Moshi...been doing these trip for more than 30 years.

If you want an overseas "middle man" then I would suggest Henry Stedman's company Climb Kilimanjaro...at least read his book.

As mentioned in another post I did watch the video and there are many issues raised in it..I am not dismissing them but do wonder about the obvious promotion of 1 or 2 companies such as Private Kilimanjaro.

When was the video made?
