I can't say enough about how great our trip to Tanzania with Jiwe adventures was. From start to finish, everything was handled professionally. Our trip began with a five-day safari in Tarangire National Park, the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater with guide Siriko and cook Daniel. Siriko was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. We still can't believe how he managed to locate those leopards! His easy laugh and laid-back attitude made the experience very enjoyable.

The second part of our trip was the highlight, hiking Mt. Kilimanjaro in seven days via the Machame Route. Our head guide Andrew has been guiding up the mountain for close to 20 years and his experience and calm demeanor inspired our trust. Assistant guide Ben was equally capable and supportive, often setting the pace for our little group. Our guides and team of 12 porters, cook Paul and server Emanuel worked hard to make our lives easier.

Last but not definitely not least, we have to mention Edgar and the office staff in Moshi, who welcomed us back and loaned us a driver and vehicle for our last day before our evening flight back to Europe. Our trip was nearly over.
They didn't have to be so accommodating, but they made us feel like family friends.

We would highly recommend Jiwe Adventures for a safari and/or Kilimanjaro hike.

What more can I say about Jiwe adventures team for what a great lifetime experience they made for our trip.
We did a challenging route (machame) to the summit in 6 day, we had fun and more to learn from Kilimanjaro trip,charming people and helpful crew.
I will write an article about Kilimanjaro and the people out there. I can not say more about Jiwe adventures team, these people are professionals, awesome and one of a kind when it comes to Kilimanjaro climb.

They deliver perfectly what they promised, from airport pick up, nice hotel, the Kilimanjaro hike and everything about our plan and we give them 5 out of 5.
If someone ask me to advice amazing trip to do in Africa i will recommend him/her to climb mount Kilimanjaro as they say you get an opportunity to stand on top of Africa.
Thank you Jiwe adventures for a perfect trip.

What more can I say about this amazing team from Jiwe adventures who did a great job for our holiday in Tanzania for Kilimanjaro climb. It was a great adventure in my life ever.
The owner Edgar, came to visit us in our hotel before and after trek, he always took care of us and of course he worked friendly with his team to ensure everything went perfect in our way.
We chose Machame route as we were recommended by some of our friends who did before us. It was a tough climb but worth it, we summit at late night of July to August.
We did it with the help of a great and friendly crew led by Jackson (chief guide) and two assistant guides; Benson (assistant guide) and Peter (assistant guide).

One advice to fellow climbers, it is better to go with your private toilet on the mountain as we were advised by Edgar and it worked, because the park toilets were not very safe especially for women.

Can I recommend Jiwe Adventures? Of course with no doubt, I highly recommend these people. If you plan to climb Kilimanjaro, then go with them you will realize what I'm saying.

We were group of 6 who did Kilimanjaro climb through Machame route in 7 days which seem to be a challenging route since beginning of our plan, some of us wanted to change the plan but Edgar, helped us a a lot in organizing the best plan and It wasn't that hard as we thought it would be.The second day on the mountain seem to be difficult but the crew was very responsive in our way to make sure we accomplish what we planned.
I think I can write a book concern an amazing experience on Kilimanjaro with Jiwe adventures team, They are great people doing what they love.
I definitely recommend them.

We climbed Kilimanjaro and did a 4 days Safari trip with Jiwe Adventures and it was Amazing!

Everyone in the company took really good care of us, during the trips and between them in Moshi, especially the manager Edgar and our Kilimanjaro guides Benson & Andrew. We felt that we have friends in Tanazania from the second we arrived.
The guides are professionals - they prepared us well for the trips, gave us really good tips and high quality gear and led us happily and safely to the summit.

After the ascent of Kilimanjaro, we went to the Serengeti National Park, along with Peter and Martin (Mr. delicious), who really cooked delicious meals. Peter had a great knowledge about the lives of animals and people who are indigenous to those areas and customs. We saw lots of animals and we could hear lions both nights we slept in tents in the Serengeti. We highly recommend Jiwe Adventures who based his office in the Kilimanjaro region as a reliable and competent company, a vast array of knowledge on Safari and mountaineering.

Dear Traveler,
I have traveled to Tanzania several times to work with a group of Maasai women so I was very committed to choosing a local company to hike the mountain over one owned by foreigners. I am very glad I did. The owners are extremely professional and will make sure that your trip is very well organized. They will also listen carefully to any specific needs your group may have and work with you to make sure they are met. Although Jiwe Adventures are the least costly choice, I believe it is because they are a small operation and are trying to keep their business competitive. I did not find that they "cut corners" in any way. We had a proper tent and more food than we were able to consume each day. Our guides were excellent and accommodating, our cook was fantastic, and the porters were all very friendly. In fact, I stay in touch with the porter that carried my gear and just finished supporting his college education. I found him so hard-working and earnest that I wanted to find a way to support him further in his work.

The owner makes himself very available for planning and will be available via his mobile the days before your trip for any last minute planning. He's as eager and willing to arrange your trip as he seems! I really encourage you to use Jiwe Adventures. I'm so fond of them now that when I return to Tanzania for work I'd enjoy visiting them just to reconnect.

As an aside, I followed the tipping recommendations I read about on-line and tipped the team generously. It is important to do so given that they are one of the least expensive guides on the mountain.

The only other thing I'd suggest is that if it's within your means, to have the people in your traveling group consider gathering extra hiking clothing (boots, hats, head lamps, etc.) to provide as gifts or donations to the porters. No matter which company you choose, the porters are all under-dressed because they cannot afford proper hiking clothes or shoes. The clothes they do have often come as used donations. If your group can collect hiking clothes from friends before traveling it would make a very nice gift to give upon your departure.

I hope you choose Jiwe Adventures and have a wonderful trip.

Subí Mt.Kilimanjaro hace aproximadamente 4 semanas, yo soy y mis compañeras de nuestra Universidad el total fue de 10 personas con 5 hombres y 5 mujeres que todos se conocen entre sí .El viaje fue organizado por el grupo y fue posible por el Sr. Edgar Sirikwa el director gerente de Jiwe Adventures de la transformación de nuestras reservas y otras reservas con costos muy accesibles desde el primer día hasta el día de nuestra partida. Día de llegada nos encontramos con el director general Adjunto Sr. Inno es real un hombre divertido con una lengua tan cálida bienvenida, lo primero que se presentó como un niño Maasai en un principio no entendíamos el significado de la misma, pero más tarde dejó en claro que nosotros que es una tribu maasai encontrado en Tanzania tienen sus propios códigos de apósitos y customs.He tomaron como a uno de los hoteles que pasamos nuestra noche allí y al día siguiente nos encontramos con otros productos alimenticios para asegurarse de que son tan amable y Guía caring.Our Ole Kisambu era impresionante, los porteros trabajaron tan duro, también la comida que preparaban para nosotros era tan deliciosa que ni siquiera podemos explicar cómo disfrutamos de la primera semana meal.Our que hicimos a la cima del Monte Kilimanjaro, que thoughly disfrutamos de nuestro tiempo juntos en la montaña a pesar de que era muy frío, pero para nosotros en América del frío, pero Mt.Kilimanjaro Cumbre es real en el punto de congelación debido a su elevación por encima del mar level.Then la segunda semana después de Kili también fue uno de los momentos destacados de mi vida visitando uno de los parque nacional más grande de Tanzania, Ngorongoro Conservation Area, y el cráter. El cráter del Ngorongoro es un impresionante y hermoso entorno y el mejor lugar para ver los cinco grandes y otra guía Salvaje animales.El y el portero son tan divertido, que hacen de nuestras noches tan agradable, ya que están compartiendo historias sobre sus cultures.songs, bailes y sus estilos de vestir. A pesar de que no podía entender las canciones que cantaron, ya que utilizan su lengua así lo llaman idioma suajili que también es su idioma nacional Siempre fue un momento muy alegre.
Sin duda la próxima vez que nos vamos a volver a África Tanzania particularmente porque tenemos mucho más para explorar usaremos Jiwe Adventures, por lo tanto, yo recomendaría altamente Jiwe Adventures que se basa en sus oficinas Kilimanjaro Regiones, si se quiere subir Mt.Kilimanjaro de manera segura y con las mejores preparaciones para el éxito en alcanzar la cima del Mt.Kilimanjaro (elavation 5895 metros o 19340 pies)

We spent four days after the climb on safari, which was also planned by Jiwe adventures. This was an amazing vacation. Edgar is the creator and director of Jiwe adventures. The organization is making a difference for their community. Everything that was said would be done, was done. Timely, professional, and with kindness. Highly recommend!!

They kept us well fed and made sure we felt safe the entire time. Our guide, Gerald, was incredible. Very knowledgeable and would recommend him by name. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Our contact was James and he took care of everything.I would highly recommend them.

The safari was well organized from airport pick up, hotel, safari jeep and a welcoming team including charming Guide (Shani) who made us happy every moment on our safari. We enjoyed seeing about all big five, birds, the Masai people, their culture, and the mysterious history of human evolution in Olduvai gorge. The accommodation was nice and the food was delicious too. When you think of Tanzania safari, Jiwe adventures is the best company for you.
