    Just completed a successful summit of Kilimanjaro with Altezza and the experience was excellent. We had 11 in the group with various levels of experience and Joseph and his team did a fantastic job of keeping everyone on track to summit. Guides and porters were excellent, food was outstanding and health checks were comforting. You will not go wrong booking with Altezza, most of us actually booked through the Clymb, who do all the hard work of vetting the tour companies..,great combination! Thank you to Anna, Joseph, Philemon, Tuma, Julius and Bariki. Read more

    Altezza could not have been more organized, helpful, accommodating and professional. Albert was our lead guide (Top Notch!) with our greatest cheerleader JoJo and Philomen to make sure we kept the right pace. I have to echo what 847rachaelc says! Especially about the toilet tent! (otherside known as the green machine!) We had the privilege of a birthday celebration, huge cake shared by all, song, dance and celebration! The best was the hot water bunny bottles, for which we gratefully thank Anna for finding new ones for us to take home. An experience of a lifetime! Read more

    Altezza Travel handled all of our needs perfectly when we visited Tanzania. I came for a climb and my wife and daughter joined me for a pre-climb safari. The safari vehicle, guide, and lodgings were perfect and a great value. The Kilimanjaro guide team was substantial as well as experienced in health, safety, and guiding to success. The booking and planning process was expertly handled by Anna from the Altezza Office. It is a well-managed organization that provides exceptional value. 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.

    Thank you very much for the FANTASTIC Vacation! From the minute we landed in Kilimanjaro and the professional driver, to the AWESOME Safari guide and experience to the super professional hiking guides, we were absolutely blown away! We really really had a great time. The safari experience was so much better than we could have imagined. We saw so many different animals and so close to our vehicle that we got fantastic pictures!!! The guide was awesome in getting us close to all the animals and very friendly and professional. All the accommodations and lodges and staff were very inviting. We really felt welcomed and appreciated during the entire safari trip. The hiking portion was an experience of a life time! Although my wife did experience some altitude sickness, the entire hike was unforgettable. The professionalism of the guides (Rama and Stephen) and the entire crew was unbelievable. They always made us feel as part of the team and were always willing to help in anyway they could. The food during the hike was better than restaurant quality! I don't know how they cook such delicious meals on the side of the mountain, but we were really really impressed with the taste of the food. We successfully made it to summit and because it was so cold, we only spent a few minutes up there. Rama was fantastic and took our camera and really took some great pictures for us at the top. My hands were too cold to operate the camera, so we are really thankful of the pictures he took for us! My wife experienced some more severe altitude sickness after summit and with safety being the number one concern from the guides, they made the call to bring in a helicopter to get us off the mountain and my wife to the Kilimanjaro Search and Rescue clinic. The clinic did a fantastic job helping my wife and getting her feeling better. As we left the clinic, Altezza did a great job getting us a driver back to the hotel and securing the hotel room for the unexpected night.

    The entire trip was absolutely amazing and we are really glad we picked Altezza for our vacation. From all the help from Stasia planning the trip and answering our questions to all the staff at the hotels/lodges/safari/hiking crew/drivers it was a vacation of a lifetime! We would gladly take more vacations with Altezza and highly recommend them to any of our family or friends looking to travel to Africa.

    This tip became quite unplanned and spontaneous for us. Suddenly my wife and I got vacation on the work and we started thinking about travelling somewhere. We found Altezza from context advertising half a year ago or something and now, facing the problem of choosing the destination for vacation, we thought: "Let`s go to Africa, why not?" Obviously we had lack of time for planning the trip and also due to the bank restrictions for international money transfer from Ukraine (you can not transfer through the bank more than $700 abroad), we could not pay a 30% deposit to guarantee our willing to come. After a short dialogue with the manager we bought tickets from Ukraine on the next day. Many thanks to manager Eugene for his responsiveness and understanding of the issue. Telling truth, till the last minute, when we met our safari driver and manager of the company at the airport, I was worry about the trip. Neither me, nor my wife could believe that it is possible to organize 3-days <a href="https://en.altezza.travel/tanzania-safari">luxury safari in Tanzania</a> within 30 hours only. But now I can confidently say "YES"! Alttezza Travel managed to organize a dream-trip for me and my wife and we really appreciate them for the work done and can safely recommend this company to all travelers. Read more

    My wife and I made a climbing with Altezza Travel in October 2015. When choosing the company for <a href="https://en.altezza.travel/climbing-kilimanjaro">climbing Kilimanjaro</a> we were also considering some more budget options, however eventually we were very happy that we were climbing with Altezza Travel. The difference in pricing is visible on the Mount when you see how other climbers struggle compared to you. Starting from the airport Altezza team provided excellent services. My wife and I were taking a private 6 days climb via Umbwe route, our guides were very nice guys Victor and Haji. The trekking was very interesting, at first, we were going through rainforests, starting from the third day we witnessed the picturesque landscapes of the high altitude tundra, which were soon replaced by the unforgettable Lunar-Martian desert landscapes. The team was very professional! We did not expect such a level of service on the Mountain. The meals were really great, rich and varied. The guides were helpful and very caring – they checked our medical condition twice a day using oxymeters and were checking our lungs and overall state of health. The tents and all the equipment was almost brand-new and we were sleeping on 3-inch thick matrasses! The final summiting night was the most memorable and mind-blowing experience. Our guides helped us to conquer the Uhuru peak successfully and escorted us inside the crater to see the Kilimanjaro glaciers. Thank you Victor and Haji! Thank you Altezza Travel for making our Kilimanjaro dream come true! Read more

    My friend and I were doing safaris in February 2015. We had contacted several companies before choosing Altezza. And that was a right decision for 100% - with Altezza I did not even think about difficulties and organizational matters, only admired the local scenery and enjoyed the adventure during all our stay in Tanzania. Thank you guys for your hospitality and great memories! Read more

    My two-weeks adventure in Africa is over! All stuff are unpacked, and all the impressions, more or less , arranged on the shelves. The trip was more than spontaneous, I was traveling alone, and my knowledge of the language was so poor and little, however with Altezza Travel I did not even think about difficulties and organizational matters, only admired the local scenery and enjoyed the adventure! :-) Usually, I’m planning the journey by myself, during the process you often realize that something is missing. But when I have returned from this trip, I understand that more intensely and perfectly I would not travel! I joined the group of wonderful people, terribly miss them now, and the service was so great that I would not change a thing! Despite the fact that the ascent itself was challenging, the whole group summited, and we would not do it without help of our professional guides, who followed our needs, speed, health, supported and helped, and even forced, for example, to eat or to sleep when it is needed, and during the summit never left us alone. <a href="https://en.altezza.travel/tanzania-safari">Tanzania safari</a>, I have to say, is not only exotic animals in their natural environment and African landscapes, but also fine hotels and beer in the evening  Thank you so much for such a fabulous trip! ^^ Read more

    Очень рады, что выбрали Альтеззу для восхождения и сафари. Все организовано превосходно: отличное оборудование, персонал, все хорошо продумано и прошло без заминок (что по нашему опыту, не так часто бывает в таких сложных поездках). Мы восходили в январе, по маршруту Лемошо с chief-гидом Рашидом. Маршрут хороший - позволяет аклиматизироваться и, хоть и не без трудностей, удачно штурмовать пик Ухуру, время тоже удобное - в это время в Танзании лето и на высоких точках не так морозно. Альтезза по максимуму делает поход приятным: повара готовят отлично и много (несколько блюд за раз - суп, второе, десерт!), палатки просторные и очень комфортные, все нужные лекарства у гидов есть. Нам очень повезло с нашими гидами - Рашид, Чарльз, Агри, Тума, Эксод, Роберт - крайне внимательные и профессиональные ребята, всегда были рядом в нужный момент, а при спуске (который мне давался трудно, так как у меня ещё до поездки болела нога) чуть ли не под руки несли в сложных местах и брали мой личный рюкзак. Отдельно большое спасибо Рашиду, Чарльзу, Агри за интересные беседы - эти гиды сделали наше восхождение особенно запоминающимся: у ребят отличный английский, благодаря чему мы много узнали о Танзании, и они хорошо знают местную флору и фауну - так что при спуске через лес у нас получилось целое сафари) Сафари также прошло удачно, нам попался классный гид Бонифаций: хорошо знает парки, разглядел нам всех полагающихся животных, очень юморной:) Итого, всем рекомендуем!

    From reading other reviews, it appears that a lot of your experience depends on what driver you get. We apparently won the lottery, as our driver Franky was wonderful. He had a knack for finding animals and we saw all of the big 5 - most of them multiple times, plus endless hippos, giraffes, zebras, etc. The car was also amazing. It was brand-new (2014) green coloured Land Cruiser with refrigerator, comfortable seats and sockets for charging of devices. Our car was kept clean and cold drinking water was available for us constantly. Our accommodation was clean, comfortable and always interesting! And what`s important – all lodges were in African style. Tanzania is a country where everyone we met was warm, happy and welcoming. It always felt safe wherever we were. This country is an oasis, and I would love to go back again. At the end of our 5 day safari we were really sad to part ways with our driver Franky. I recommend him and Altezza Travel to anyone travelling to Tanzania. Read more

    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
