Great guides for Kilimanjaro Such a memorable experience! The entire team at Nyange Adventures were so nice and helpful. I was referred to them by a friend and I'm so glad I chose them to help me get to the top of Kilimanjaro! Amnaay was our guide and he did a great job along with the rest of the team. I will definitely visit them again for another trip.

Mount Kilimanjaro Machame Route with Nyange Adventures Had a fantastic experience with Nyange Adventures climbing Mount Kilimanjaro’s Machame route. Had a pre climb briefing to check equipment and to meet my guide Antipas. Hired sleeping bag to save bringing from the UK. Team of eight supported me on a solo climb. They were all fantastic. Had some good laughs. Had trouble eating the amount of food they try to feed you; three meals a day with three courses! Summited in six days rather than the intended seven due to feeling good and no altitude sickness. Whole experience was first class. Should have booked a Safari at the end of the climb.

Incredible experience. Me and my girlfriend had a wonderful time at Serengheti and Nogorongo national park. Everyone so friendly. It really felt like we were visitors at the home that belongs to the animals. We started with a tour guide and came back with our friend John. Such a great experience. Strongly recommend!
Kilimanjaro hike review - Machame trail We hiked the Machame trail with Nyange Adventures and had a once in a lifetime experience. Our team was AMAZING and created a safe, supportive, and fun environment. Our guides Mo and Amnaay were the perfect pair to lead us to the summit. They were attentive, took care of us, had our safety in mind always, and truly made my experience a positive one in the setting of having personal health issues at the beginning. I would not have made it to the top without this team!!! Everyone that was a part of the team, including all the porters, worked so hard and joyfully to make our experience a positive one. The food also was great, and you will not be underfed if that’s one of your worries while hiking. Overall, we would recommend Nyange Adventures for anyone who is interested in hiking Kilimanjaro. They are also part of the KPAP group so you know porters and staff will be treated fairly.

Mt Kilimanjaro Climb - 7 days Lemosho My husband and I had the most amazing experience climbing Kilimanjaro with Nyange Adevntures! It is difficult to choose who to do the climb with, due to the multitude of companies offering similar packages. Nonetheless Nyange adventures managed to differentiate themselves from the start, being very personable, flexible and happy to help! Their flexibility and quick problem-solving attitude turned out to be essential, when my flight to Kilimanjaro was cancelled, causing a 1 day delay to the trip. Above all, however, we recommend them for the amazing people that came on the climb with us - the guides, cook, and porters. One can’t describe the experience of climbing the mountain, because it’s incredible in different ways for different people. But the constant variable is that you need a solid team to help you on. An African proverb says “If you want to go quick, go alone. If you want to go far, go together”. Nyange Adventure equipped us with a family to travel together with and we will always be grateful!
Lifetime experience Nyange Adventures My friends and I had an amazing experience with Nyange Adventures. First we did the Marangu route in six days with the guide Musa, he and his team were wonderful with us. And then we went on a two-day safari, our guide was amazing and gave us an unforgettable adventure. Thank you to the entire Nyange Adventures team.

 Upon your arrival at Kilimanjaro Airport (JRO) our driver will be waiting just outside the Customs Control area with a Nyange Adventure sign with your name on it. After he loads your bags into our van, he will drive you to your hotel in Moshi. Once you are settled in, your guide will go through a pre-climb briefing where all your questions will be answered and important information will be given. There will be an equipment check to ensure that you have everything needed to make your climb comfortable and safe. If you need any equipment, any/all items can be rented locally of good quality at a fair price. Note that if your arrival is at night, the briefing and equipment check may be done early the next morning instead. 

A scenic 1-hour drive takes you from Moshi to Momella Gate, the starting point of your Mount Meru trek. Once there, you’ll register and get things ready for your climb.

Your first challenge is a beautiful 4-5 hour hike through a thick forest. Watch for black and white colobus monkeys and colorful birds along the way!  After this 10-kilometer trek, you’ll reach Miriakamba Hut, your cozy home for the night at 2,516 meters.

Today’s hike takes about 2-3 hours and covers 4 kilometers.  The trail gets steeper, but the views are worth it!  Imagine walking through gorgeous heather and open moorland with stunning views of Mount Meru’s crater and the surrounding landscape.

Your destination for the night is Saddle Hut.  Fill up on a yummy dinner and get a good night’s rest – tomorrow’s the exciting summit push!

It’s summit day – the toughest but most rewarding!  An early wake-up call (around midnight) is followed by a light breakfast to fuel your climb.  Then, you’ll embark on a challenging 6-7 hour ascent to Peak through steep and rocky terrain.  This is a tough push, but the views are worth it!

From the summit, witness stunning scenery of the Meru Crater and Ash Cone.  Keep an eye out for mountain animals like reedbucks and klipspringers along the way!  After celebrating your accomplishment, descend back to Momella Gate, ready for your trip back to Moshi town.
In the evening you will have a celebratory farewell party at Nyange Farm with your fellow trekkers and your mountain crew. Share stories by a bonfire, savor Tanzanian cuisine, and plant a tree – a lasting reminder of your Mt Meru triumph!
