'Wageni ni baraka' – Guests are a blessing
Saying from East Africa
I recently did a 7 day Kilimanjaro climb and a 4 day safari tour with Jerome and his team and I can confidently say that it was one of the best experiences of my life. I have been researching on who to climb Kilimanjaro with for years and I am very happy with the choice we made in the end. Jerome and his team were always extremely fun, professional, and timely with everything they did. They ensured that we were taken well care of every minute of the day and played a huge role in keeping spirits high went it came to making the summit. I would recommend Kileo Tours to anyone who wants to have a care-free and successful experience travelling Africa!Tour date: June 2018

My daughter and I just came back from Africa. We had a 7 day trek to the roof of Africa and a 4 day safari with Jerome and his Kileo Tours group. Jerome is an excellent guide and both he and the members of his team were always professional, kind,respectful and always ready with good advice and a kind word and a smile when things were getting tough. I highly recommend Jerome for your African adventures. Thank you Jerome, Fadhili, Michael, Ziggy, Kennedy and the rest of the crew for the unforgettable experience. It was the hardest thing I have ever done but so rewarding and satisfying and you made it fun as well.Tour date: June 2018

A FANTASTIC experience provided by the Kileo tours company. I would highly recommend using this company due to their attention to detail and no problem being too big. The trip started with a problem whereby my bag did not arrive at the airport, this meant that the trip had to start a day late. This was not a problem for Jerome and his team and they made great effort in making me feel comfortable in my surroundings. They are clearly experienced in what they do and this helped make it an unforgettable experience. However, the biggest compliment I can pay is how Jerome goes out of his way to ensure that you are enjoying yourself. I enjoyed it so much that I am now looking at safari opportunities with the same company.

Had a blast with Jerome and his team. Amazing food, service, singing and he even helped me drag an inflatable whale to the top of the mountain! Have recommended to several of my friends since and would genuinely do it again myself.

3-person group summited Kilimanjaro on a 6 day trek together with Jerome and Kileo Tours. An unforgettable trip, with stunning nature, challenging hikes and a great guide and crew. Jerome is very experienced and will bring a great crew to the trip, including a chef that can cater to allergies. Jerome also knew exactly what to do when one in our group got altitude sickness, but still managed to get her to the top.
Highly recommended to use Kileo Tours if you are going to climb Kilimanjaro!

“6 National Parks with Kileo Tours“ – “6 Parques nacionaels con Kileo Tours“
We Safari and Trekking with Kileo Tours for 10 days in total. We start with a day of trekking on Mount Kilimanjaro, where only got to the first camp. Very good walk, the truth is perfect for exploring this mountain but without the need to make the 6 days of the complete circuit. You get to see the top and the scenery is very beautiful, good activity to do for a day.
After that we walked five national parks in Safari mode. We start by the Arusha National Park, which is very interesting because it is the only park we stayed in that had a lot of jungle, so we saw many types of monkeys, not found in other parks. After that we went two days at Tarangire National Park, a day at Lake Manyara National Park, 3 days in the Serengeti and Ngorongoro after 1 day.
Highly recommended especially the last two parks (Serengeti and Ngorongoro), in addition to the Arusha National Park, as the Lake Manyara and Tarangire are almost the same animals.
We loved traveling with this company because it is operated by the owner and are really friendly, which is vital for Safari that lasts 10 days. We stayed 10 days with the same people and the truth is I really enjoyed it, we laughed and talked all. On top of that are very skilled at what they do, they know perfect behavior of animals and places in the park visit, as they are also very good in the mountains, being the companies that sometimes makes summit on Kilimanjaro.
The company did everything for us, since we picked up at the airport until the last day took us right where they were responsible for arranging accommodation and all safari. They were very cooperative when we asked if we could take some place to buy souvenirs or gifts to bring to our country.
I highly recommend visiting the parks we did, although I think you can do almost the same thing in fewer days, just to visit Arusha, Serengeti and Ngorongoro national park, it has covered much of the animals.

Hicimos Safari y Treking con Kileo Tours por 10 días en total. Partimos con un día de treking en el monte Kilimanjaro, donde solo llegamos hasta el primer campamento. Muy buen paseo, la verdad es que perfecto para conocer esta montaña pero sin la necesidad de hacer los 6 días que dura el circuito completo. Se logra ver la cima y el paisaje es muy bonito, buena actividad para hacer por un día.
Luego de eso recorrimos 5 parques nacionales en modo Safari. Partimos por el parque nacional Arusha, el cual es muy interesante debido a que es el único en el que estuvimos que tenia una gran parte de jungla, por lo que vimos muchísimos tipos de monos, que no encontramos en otros parques. Luego de eso fuimos dos días al parque nacional Tarangire, un día al parque nacional Lake Manyara, 3 días en el Serengeti y luego 1 día en Ngorongoro.
Muy recomendado en especial los últimos dos parques (Serengeti y Ngorongoro), además del parque nacional Arusha, ya que el Lake Manyara y en Tarangire encontramos casi los mismos animales.
Nos encanto viajar con esta empresa, ya que es operada por su dueño y son realmente amables, lo cual es vital para un Safari que dura 10 días. Nosotros estuvimos 10 días con las mismas personas y la verdad es que lo disfrutamos muchísimo, nos reímos y conversamos de todo. Además de eso son muy expertos en lo que hacen, conocen perfecto el comportamiento de los animales y que lugares del parque visitar, como también son muy buenos en la montaña, siendo de las empresas que más veces hace cumbre en el Kilimanjaro.
La empresa hizo todo por nosotros, desde que nos recogió en el aeropuerto hasta que el último día nos llevo donde mismo, ellos se encargaron de arreglar los alojamientos y todo lo del safari. Tuvieron muy buena disposición cuando les pedimos si nos podían llevar a algún lugar para comprar recuerdos o regalos para traer a nuestro país.
Recomiendo mucho visitar los parques que hicimos, aunque creo que se puede hace casi lo mismo en menos días, solo con visitar el parque nacional Arusha, Serengeti y Ngorongoro, se tiene cubierto gran parte de los animales.

During the end of September 2015, my 7- day Machame Route adventure to the summit of Kilimanjaro became the physical and mental challenge of a lifetime. Having lived in both Kenya and Tanzania for a number of years, 'Kili's presence is all pervasive, from postcards, to books, to beer and billboards. To actually get up there was an extraordinary journey through an ever-changing landscape, where in the end, it became hard to work out what was biggest - the landscape, the vegetation, the glorious vistas, the big skies, Kilimanjaro - or was it simply the camaraderie and unflagging goodwill of the people who got us there - our porters and guides. To my mountain guide, Jerome Kileo of Kileo Tours and my porter Michael. Asante sana

“Summiting Kilimanjaro with Jerome Kileo”
I had the opportunity to climb Kilimanjaro with Jerome Kileo and his team. This was an excellent experience for me and my girlfriend.
I have experienced Jerome as a pleasant guide who is very sensitive. He has a good eye for detail and safety. During the entire trip he was keen to point out wildlife and explain things, was more aware of our own fitness than we were, and equipped with all safety equipment. So was his team, a team he personally selected.
During the climb we climb at our own pace which sometimes meant we could take some shortcuts to overtake slower groups and sometimes in short breaks for us to enjoy the views. Moreover Jerome is pleasant company during the meals or conversations during the hike up.
I would strongly recommend climbing up Kili with Kileo Tours.

SALVAJE - "WILD"!!!
We met Kileo Tours once we arrived at Tanzania without concrete plans. Recommended by the receptionist, Jerome and Livingstone came to our hotel in order to kindly explain everything. We started our adventure the next day with a hiking tour to the base camp of Mount Kilimanjaro (Machame Camp). The trail is beautiful and well worth doing at least to be at the foot of the giant of Africa! By time, we did not summit because our main objective was the Safari.
The next day we were picked up for Safari! Our first park was Tarangire National Park, known for its elephants! We decided not to sleep in hotel, but with them in a Public Camp. Before reaching the camp, we were impressed by zebras, elephants, buffalo, monkeys, birds and baboons ... we even saw a Masai tribe! On reaching the camp we realized what it really meant: set up a tent in the middle of the park without better protection than a fence to protect the kitchen area, a set of rules that you must follow and an armed ranger overnight. The first night we had elephants and lions walking in the Camp ... I was definitely scared, but if you follow the rules nothing will happen ... and believe me, it has been one of the best experiences! Then we were in the Serengeti, with the same dynamics and a pair of night visitors ... We ended up with Ngorongoro National Park, home to the last and elusive black rhinos.
KILEO TOURS? Of course! Good English, it shows who exactly know the places, since finding a leopard is much more difficult than I had imagined!!! We managed to see the BIG FIVE after 5 days. Jerome, Livingstone and Alfa were the best guides and friends who could meet in Tanzania! Good companion, learning, excellent food and above all laughter!!!

Conocimos a Kileo Tours una vez que llegamos a Tanzania y sin planes concretos.
Recomendados por la recepcionista, Jerome y Livingstone acudieron a nuestro hotel para explicarnos amablemente todo. Comenzamos nuestra aventura al día siguiente con un trekking hasta el campamento base del Kilimanjaro; el sendero es precioso y vale la pena realizarlo al menos para estar a los pies del gigante de África! Por tiempo, no hicimos cumbre, ya que nuestro objetivo principal era el Safari.
Al día siguiente nos pasaron a buscar para irnos de Safari! nuestro primer parque fue Tarangire National Park, conocido por sus elefantes! Decidimos no dormir en hotel, sino que con ellos en un Public Camp. Antes de llegar al camp, ya estábamos impresionados por las cebras, elefantes, búfalos, monos, aves y babuinos... incluso vimos a una tribu masai! Al llegar al camp nos dimos cuenta de qué significaba realmente: instalar una carpa en medio del parque, sin mayor resguardo que una reja para proteger el área de la cocina, una serie de reglas que debes seguir y un guardaparque armado durante la noche. La primera noche tuvimos elefantes y leones caminando dentro del Camp... sin duda me asusté, pero si sigues las normas nada pasará... y créanme, ha sido una de las mejores experiencias! Luego nos quedamos en Serengeti, con la misma dinámica y un par de visitantes nocturnos... Terminamos con Ngorongoro National Park, hogar de los últimos y esquivos rinocerontes negro.
KILEO TOURS? por supuesto! buen nivel de inglés, se nota que conocen perfectamente el lugar, ya que encontrar un leopardo es mucho más difícil de lo que me imaginé!!! Logramos ver a los BIG FIVE después de 5 días. Jerome, Livingstone y Alfa fueron los mejores guías y amigos que pudimos conocer en Tanzania! Buena compañía, aprendizaje, excelente comida y sobretodo risas!!!

From pick up at the airport on our arrival to sending us off at the end of our trip, Jerome provided a very personalized service. The climb up Kilimanjaro was well planned and met all our specifications and Jerome and his crew took extremely good care of us all the way. He also arranged for our safari and other side trips. The hotels and lodges we stayed in were all great. Jerome was recommended to my son by someone that he met on a humanitarian trip to Haiti and I am glad I made the leap of faith and followed this recommendation. His prices are fair and he treats his crew fairly. I admire his integrity and highly recommend Jerome to everyone who wants to have a great experience in Tanzania.
