    Our trip to the roof of Africa

    I cannot say how great this tour operator is.  Phenomenal service, guides, food and accommodations.  They beat, by far, our expectations.  I would recommend them to anyone and everyone.

    Before opting for Altezza Travel to do the Kilimanjaro climb, I have researched dozens of webpages and websites of many companies offering the clumb... from real lical companies to companies with addresses in the USA, Australia or the UK.In the end , I chose Altezza, for various reasons:They do not appear as soon as you click search Kili Climb, as they seem to be discreet on that, although their services are great and was entirely satisfied with them.Search engines gives you other names of companies.Their guides and support teams are more than excellent, caring and attentive to the most minute details. They all work in synergie and each of the 40 support team members knows exactly what he has to do and when to do it...We took the Machame Route and really enjoyed the scenery and the hike.The chef was excellent as the food was cooked in a kitchen tent , it was like at a signature restaurant... We had three meals a day in addition to the tea , fruit biscuit/ cake at 10 am and abt 4 pm...Medical check was carried out twice a day in the mornings and in the evenings...The guide were very professional, briefing us every evening on the following day schedule, taking into account the physical capabilities of each climbers, as some would like to go faster than others while others prefer poly poly ( slowly slowly)The porters are very helpful drying our gears when they get wet and filling our water bottles/ camel bags... Carrying our duffle bags and attending to our needs individually...We have become like a family day after day and the day we came back to the hotel we really found it difficult to part without them!By the way, I now understand why the tip recommended in the website (200 to 250 is really a reward to be shared by about 40 porters Who have really done great efforts and risks carrying our luggage and tents....)I honestly have no hesitation whatsoever recommending Altezza for any climber wishing to do the Kilimanjaro.

    Lemosho - 7 Days

    I cannot recommend this company highly enough. There were 6 of us and 27 people between guides, cooks and porters looking after us. Starting with the guides, Joseph, Exaud and Erick made me feel safe and looked after throughout the whole trip. When I fell behind, I was never alone. Unfortunately,...

    I cannot recommend this company highly enough. There were 6 of us and 27 people between guides, cooks and porters looking after us. Starting with the guides, Joseph, Exaud and Erick made me feel safe and looked after throughout the whole trip. When I fell behind, I was never alone. Unfortunately, I suffered from altitude sickness and had to turn back halfway through the summit on summit night but unlike other companies, I had two people looking after me the whole time, giving me water, food, reassurance and holding me up when I could walk no more. The porters are simply amazing. They went far and beyond their job description to make us feel comfortable, safe, and welcome at any time. The food was definitely a highlight and the bunny-shaped hot-water bottle at night was a very nice touch. I intend to try and summit Kilimanjaro again since I didn't make it to the top and when I do I will certainly use Altezza Travel. Don't look elsewhere, choose Altezza! READ MORE

    I was planning my trip for a long time parsing different reviews and searching for a reliable and professional travel agency. It was the dream of my life to enjoy the whole wildlife variety and spectacular vistas of East Africa’s national parks. And thanks to Altezza team my dreams came true! Professional guide, comfortable safari vehicles and perfect program of Hartebeest tour allowed me to catch such scenic moments as the lion family hunting scene, resting cheetahs, and the Great Migration in Serengeti. My journey was impeccably managed from the first steps at airport Kilimanjaro until my departure. I’ve enjoyed this a great experience with Altezza Travel. Definitely recommended to other travelers.

    I cannot express how grateful I am to Altezza for organising my first solo adventure, and definitely the best trip of my life! It took me a while to choose the right program to join, because I did not know anything about Tanzanian National parks (million thanks to Stasia for answering all my silly questions with enviable patience!). I ended up choosing a 5-day safari, including 3 days in Serengeti. I was so afraid of going to another country on my own, but this fear went away as soon as I saw a smiling guy waving a sing board with my name on it at the airport exit gate. I met other members of my safari group the next morning and they were from all over the world: an old couple in theirs 70s from USA, who just climbed Kilimanjaro few days before (what excuse do you have now?), a beautiful young girl from Russia and a funny guy from Brazil. At 7:30 am our unforgettable adventure started.
    I’ve been always fascinated by wild animals and untouched nature, but spent my whole life living in a buzzing city Berlin where people are always running somewhere. In Tanzania the time stops. I spent the whole hour watching a hyena crawl towards a dead zebra, cautiously looking around for a potential danger of other hungry predators. Mesmerizing! I cannot even name all animals we saw on our trip… lions, buffalos, infinite number of antelopes, elephants, giraffes, wild foxes, ostriches, caracals, leopards, zebras, hyenas, hyraxes and many many more! All lodges and hotels we stayed at were amazing! Tanzanian hospitality was above and beyond my expectations! Everyone was willing to make our stay perfect. And they definitely succeed! Sitting on the terrace and drinking cold Kilimanjaro beer while watching the sun goes down changing the colors of savanna - that is something I will never forget!
    But the highlight of the trip was our guide Omary, who seems to know literally everything about every plant growing on Tanzanian land let alone with all animal breeds we met on our way. Do you know that there are more than 16 different species of antelopes live in Tanzania? Eland, Dik-DIk, Hartebeest, Topi, Tompson, Oribi… And now with a help of Omary, I can even distinguish them!
    So once again, thank you Altezza Travel for the best wildlife experience, new friends from different parts of the world and an excellent customer service. Next time I visit Tanzania, I will definitely contact your amazing team again!

    In this letter, I express my deep gratitude to ALTEZZA.TRAVEL for organizing and supporting my climbing on August 2, 2019 to Ukhuru peak (tour from July 28, 2019 to August 04, 2019, along the Marangu route). It was an amazing tour to Mount Kilimanjaro with the ALTEZZA.TRAVEL team. I note the highest level of tour organization - from the meeting at the airport to the moment you return to the hotel and receive certificates! Special thanks: - to the Chief guide Victor Mahonge. His organizing skills, the ability to manage and control the whole group, experience, knowledge, medical preparation, hardness and mountain endurance energized us and gave us the feeling of complete security and constant support. I am sure that without Victor Mahonge our tour would not have taken place, or the sensations would not have been so vivid; -to the guides Wisen Ronald and Elipokea E Urio. Their background, guardianship, care and attention, the ability to captivate with stories about Tanzania, history, nature, and mountain of Kilimanjaro, a high level of English knowledge, quick learning of the Russian language helped us to feel comfortable, confident and easy; - to Anna, customer relations manager. Her detailed information, elaboration of documents, solving current issues around the tour and the hotel, intelligence, punctuality, and attention to us - everything at the highest level! Thank you all for the received emotions! This is of great value to me! Of course, I will recommend ALTEZZA.TRAVEL and the team of guides of our group to all my friends and acquaintances!

    Big thank you to all the crew without any exception. It was a lifetime experience... and without them it wouldn't be possible. A special thank you to Victor and Selemon... our guides that made it possible... also to Joseph that helped me so much together with Victor during the summit stage. All the crew was 100% involved and I highly recommend them to climb Kilimanjaro. Food was good, security and safety was from the beginning the bigger worry, we had medical check ups twice a day and everything was really well organised. I absolutely recommend Altezza, my guides - Victor and Selemon together with all the crew to climd Kilimanjaro. It was a Wonderfull experience. THANK YOU SO MUCH for everything.

    Декабрь 2018, первый раз в Африке, сафари по трем паркам: Нгоронгоро, оз. Маньяра, Серенгенти. Такое хоть раз в жизни надо обязательно посмотреть!!! Об организации: все безупречно, от встречи до проводов. Отличная организация, и великолепный гид, который смог показать нам и "великую зверскую пятерку" (лев, леопард, гепард, носорог, слон), и много других зверей, почему-то не названных великими, но очень интересных. На модный вопрос "порекомендуете ли фирму своим знакомым" твердым голосом сообщаю "Да" Спасибо! READ MORE
