Kilimanjaro and Mt Kenya


I am heading to Kenya and Tanzania to climb/hike Mt Kenya and Kili. I was wondering if anyone had any experience with the companies

1)Kenya Safari Packages

2) Africa Heart Safaris

Any feedback or recommendations would be good. they seem friendly.

I have never heard of them but searched out their websites. They seem Ok, but most companies that offer tours in more than one country sub-contract the tours out to a company in each country (meaning extra money added as their profit). You may keep these companies in mind but also search out a company operating only in Tanzania to see if they can offer you a better price for the Tanzanian portion. Best of luck, I am sure that you will have a great adventure!

I haven't heard of those either, but we went with Zara Tours. They are a local company & a large operation with experience. Everyone seemed very knowledgable. Our guide, Dickson Mboya even took the effort to take our vitals every day to make sure all was well. I highly recommend them.

I haven't heard of either.

I went with ET treks for Meru. You can see my write up about it

Also a good couple of climbing copanies that are family based in Tanzania are Base Camp, Maasai Wanderings and Team Kili
