Johnson gave us champagne service

Written by: Deon Gea on 17 December 2023

The safari with Kilimanjaro Classic Safaris was the best trip we had ever taken. The accommodations were luxurious even the tents. And we were fortunate to see all the animals, close enough to get fantastic pictures. They were like they were from National Geographic. And we just used our phone for pictures. A professional camera was not necessary. Our guide Johnson was kind and made best efforts to attend to our every need. He served us hot food for our picnic lunch with table cloth, silverware and crockeries. All the food was excellent.

The trip did not disappoint and was better than we could have hoped or imagined. We definitely got champagne service from Johnson. He made a lot of effort to see all the animals that we wanted to see. We were fortunate to see a huge wildebeest crossing as well. He communicated with us well and explained about the animals and was patient with all of our questions.

He made every effort to ensure we were comfortable and enjoying our trip.

Absolutely the most trustworthly, friendly and reliable tour operators

I would highly recommend Kilimanjaro Classic Safaris. I messege and emailed them a lots of safaris and Alex from Kilimanjaro classic safari's was the first to get back to me. He was extremely kind, gave us lots of information and answered all of our many questions very quickly He was in contract with us leading up to the safari and even checked in on us during my 27 hours journey to Tanzania to make sure everything was going well. He was transfer a person to pick up us from Airport (Kilimanjaro International Airport) and he met us to my accommodation. Not only that, he also met up with us after the safari to make sure everything went well. About the tour guide and accomodation, all was well. Our guide spoken 5 languages and become a life long friend for ours. Also our balloon safari was so amaizing, we enjoyed the great view of wildebeest migration. We are so happy about that.

This company is different from others because of the good arrangement, they provide d reasonable price for us compared to the bigger safari companies and everything was tailored to our preferences including when we wanted to travel and where we wanted to go. Thanks Kilimanjaro Classic Safaris, much respect for you.

Best organize and most beautiful safari

Written by: Dhaval Raval on 13 December 2023

My friend and I find this tour provider online. Since it was incredible difficult to find any recommendations we decided to give Kilimanjaro Classic Safaris a try. That was the best decision ever!!! We went for a week of safari. Starting in Masai Mara then moving to Serengeti. We had a blast! We had one tour guide in Kenya and one in Tanzania. It work out perfectly! Amazing people! The safari was very well organized. We saw animals all the time! Of course the big 5 as well! Our lodges were simply perfect and the whole experience was extraordinary. We were very happy with Kilimanjaro classic safari's and wouldn’t change a thing. Only the cash payment was a bit new for us, but after some time in Africa why have started to understand more about the economics there.
