I was in Tanzania last month and have wanted to climb Kili for a long time, a couple friends had climbed with Demi before and he came highly recommended, want to pass it on as I had a really great experience with him. Demi is from a village at the base of Kili, he started his own company with his brother and they are based in Arusha, he hires porters and cooks that he knows well and has worked with in this past, which made for a great dynamic and an incredibly supportive team. It wasn't intentional but I really liked being able to support a small/local guiding company as well, plus they offered a very reasonable price. Demi is the kind of person that inspires a lot of respect and confidence off the bat, he's incredibly kind and patient and is flexible and perceptive enough to tailor each trip to his climbers and anticipate their needs (for ex. he somehow knew I'd be underprepared for the weather on summit day and had extra gear stashed for me..), can't say enough good things about him! If you have any questions I'd be happy to serve as a reference, just get in touch with Diamond Glacier Adventures via their website and they can give you my email.
