    My husband and I decided to climb Kilimanjaro as part of our honeymoon trip to Tanzania. Altezza Travel were absolutely brilliant from the word go! Our team, and especially our guides, Rashid and Osmani, went above and beyond to help us reach the summit. They were so friendly, professional and every detail was taken care of - including providing hot water bottles for our sleeping bags in the cold nights. Our guides were only too happy to show us extra insight about the mountain, as well as teaching us some Swahili! We couldn't have made it to the summit without their help and support. All 7 members of the team (porters,chef, waiter, guides) were keen to meet us and even performed a song for us, which was really moving. Although we spent less time with the porters and chef team, when we did see them they were always smiling and keen to talk to us, and did all their tasks with enthusiasm. We would highly recommend Altezza Travel to anyone who dreams of summiting Kilimanjaro - you won't be disappointed! The level of customer service we experienced was outstanding and we cant think of anything that could have been improved. We will have amazing memories of this trip, thank you so much!!

    Travel with Altezza was wonderful. All was good from the beginning until the end. During the preparation of my Kilimanjaro trip I got in contact with several agencies and finally I have chosen Altezza and I´m just happy because I feel I made the correct choice.This 6 days climbing Kilimanjaro Experience by Marangu Route was just a life time experience…It all was good. All the crew was professional, making medical check-ups twice a day, good food, nice and friendly staff, hot water bag for the cold nights, excellent service and mainly friendly staff… talking with us all the way long JA special thank you to our amazing guides Victor and Selemon and without any exception to all members of the crew.Also to Anna, from the Office, that was really helpful and kind.If you are in doubt, I strongly advice Altezza and my guides and their team (victor and Selemon) no make this trip.Cheers 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!

    Altezza was exceptionally professional and customer focused from start to finish.
    Our guide and driver Vincent was taking very good care of us, showing us the best spots, communicating with rangers and other guides to make every safari successful. We had a lot to see and do in our 8 days tour and now in retrospect we are glad for every minute.
    I can certainly recommend Altezza as safari tour operator. I would definitely book with them again if I get the opportunity to go back to Tanzania.
    Thank you so much, Altezza.

    Dear Altezza Travel team! Thank you very much for the organization of the climb Kilimanjaro in February 2016. Everything was prepared at the highest level. Though <a href="https://en.altezza.travel/route/rongai">Rongai route</a> is rather difficult (comparing with others routes), everything ran according to plan. This route was desert because of its complexity, so I could admire African views without others tourists. The high-altitude acclimatization was a success, due to your recommendations, my physical training was in conformity with the requirements. Drivers, guides and porters worked perfectly. Employees and administration of Altezza company took swift action in response to our demands including individual requirements and wishes. They have always been in touch. I was pleasantly surprised by European style of doing business and customer focus of company in such country as Tanzania with an absolutely different mentality and a local color. Thank you very much for your great work. See you again! Read more

    It is a good company. They organized our meeting, accommodation and <a href="https://en.altezza.travel/climbing-kilimanjaro">Kilimanjaro climb</a> at the highest level. The guide and porters are very sociable and friendly. I am very happy to get new unforgettable impressions. My special thanks to my guide named Rashid. He is very attentive and meticulous. He scrupulously watched my health and wellbeing. In hard time he shared his raincoat with me. He is a very good man!!! Due to him I improved my knowledge of English and overcame language barrier. I also want to thank all team that accompanied me: Yuda, Godfrey, Emmanuel, Isaya, Richard, Rajabu and Abdalah. By the way, do not worry about food. The cook will note your wishes and cook meals that you want. The most important is not lose the appetite at an altitude. I would like to tell those who decided to climb that the main thing is to believe in yourself and properly count your forces. During all route you will be measured the oxygen level in blood and the pulse rate. Listen to the guide and choose the right speed. Good luck to everyone! And lastly I want to thank manager Svetlana for the good tips and well organized work. Read more

    Огромная благодарность компании Altezza за великолепную организацию восхождения на Кили в июне 2019! Все было просто супер, ребята большие молодцы! Знал бы, что предоставляемое в аренду снаряжение отличного качества, половину вещей точно не стал бы с собой тащить из России, а взял бы на месте. Отдельно хотелось бы отметить прекрасную команду гидов во главе с Баракой - настоящий лидер и прекрасный человек. Ещё раз большое вам спасибо, уважаемая команда Altezza, вы очень круты! Read more

    We arrived in moshi on 18th July 2017 we stayed ay Aisweri lodge where we met Kate who had everything in order for our <a href="https://en.altezza.travel/climbing-kilimanjaro">climb to Kilimanjaro</a> great job Kate because you gave us the most fantastic guide in Kombe and his assistant Peter and a team that were simply the best we could have. To say Kombe went above the odds to look after us what a fantastic leader such a humanitarian, kind good humoured intelligent gentleman with all life skills. We just cannot say enough about him and his team. We will be forever grateful for all their hard work. God bless you all. Read more

    I cooperate with Altezza and can strongly recommend them as a professional company, which will organize your trip five plus. When planning your journey to Africa by yourself you have to search for the cheapest options of safari and <a href="https://en.altezza.travel/trekking-kilimanjaro">trekking Kilimanjaro</a>. I can say from my own experience that the local companies by reducing the price of travel often may trick you: give you cheap dirty hotels (though you paid for good quality), the meager food and cheat on different services. After this negative experience you have to specify every detail. With Altezza planning turns into pleasure, I like that they include all spendings in the price, it is always comfortable and even cheaper than the other local companies offer. Altezza offers only comfortable hotels, brand new safe safari jeeps, professional equipment for the climbing on mountains. In addition, they think through every step of the ascent on Kilimanjaro, guides provide you great food and hot tea, support and help at the right time. So I appreciate the organization of the first Russian companies in Tanzania Altezza and recommend them as a responsible company. Read more

    During a month we were chatting by emails with African companies which arrange tours to Africa: climbing Kilimanjaro and Safari. The language barrier, poor description of what we are paying, huge range of prices for the same service from different representatives, created a feeling of scam. Just 3 weeks before departure, we turned to a Russian company In Africa - Altezza Travel, expecting that now the price would be even higher than Africans have. But the price was pleased, Alex was very clear in his first letter, he advised to switch from the <a href="https://en.altezza.travel/route/machame">Machame route</a> we choose to Lemosho and after just a couple of emails we all agreed and decided to go with the Altezza. I must say that we fully trust on the accommodations provided by Altezza, did not check and did not even see any hotel, which had planned for us. Expectations of the hotels were fully met. We were met at the airport, settled in a lovely hotel at the foot of the mountain. Alex has arrived a couple of hours later, gave a full briefing, checked our equipment, some of the stuff we have was quite old and we have been planning to leave it in Africa after the trekking. 80% of our climbing gear, of course, was unprofessional and did not fit. So we went to the Altezza office, where we were fully outfitted. Climbing Kilimanjaro – is definitely a fairy tale. Neither further Safari or Zanzibar are not compatible with the emotions of the ascent! The experience of a lifetime! And such a starry sky probably does not exist anywhere, as on the Equator. Everything was perfect - meals, tents, sleeping bags and great team. And most importantly - professional guides - Moses and Albert. We left the camp the last to trek very slowly, steadily, however we came ahead of all who left the camp before, made 2 stops for 2 minutes and reached the summit one of the first just at dawn! Such an amazing view! Then we had Safari trip where everything was perfect as well. Luxury hotels, the most memorable of which Mbalageti. With swimming pools, a huge selection of food "at the buffet", overlooking the African savannah. Our guide was very energetic and made sure that we saw almost all the possible animals except rhino. In general, this trip is number one of all, where we were. I strongly advise the company Altezza, who carry out their responsibilities in full, taking care and responsibilities for all those who came under their wing in Africa. We already advised Altezza to our friend, I know, she will be also delighted! Read more
