" Great on the ground service, cannot be faulted. The office admin staff need to raise their game marginally to achieve parity with the Kilimanjaro guides and support team."

This trip exceeded my expectations completely! Each day was different, I had a great group of people and the guides were amazing. Along with the chef and the porters that carried all our stuff they really help to make the trip what it was. Do not underestimate it though! It is tough both mentally and physically but in the end there's only one way to describe it - completely unforgettable!

This is a challenging but very rewarding route! It offers more opportunities for acclimatization and camping is a great adventure. Just be prepared for a really physically demanding and exhausting summit day....but the accomplishment and the views are WORTH IT!

My first experience with Intrepid was a walk to the peak of Kilimanjaro. The team on the ground were excellent and provided a well organised and coordinated experience. I would use them again.

Kilimanjaro - Machame Route is a great way to acclimatise to ascending the mountain. It's one of the tougher routes, and more interesting for it. If your final goal is to reach the top, then with the help of the Leader and guides this gives you time to adjust to what is required. Justaz and Rocky were great!!!
