Our holiday was planned by a travel agency who choose Kilimanjaro Classic Safari's. It was so great! The service was literally perfect. Our driver, Charles France, was very kind, funny, helpful, informative and knows the parks perfectly. Couldn't think of a better safari. I recommend them without an hesitation.
