My trip with Peak Planet to Kilimanjaro was everything I hoped it would be (I had been waiting to do this trip for years). From the start to the very end everyone was fantastic, helpful, very polite and always happy. Our head and assistant guides were the best of a great crew (Davis Assey and… Read more “My trip with Peak Planet to Kilimanjaro was everything I hoped it would be”
Bosco, chef, waiter, and the whole crew were great.
I had a wonderful time. I was so glad I did not refer my trip to next year. Instead of about hundreds of people at the camps there were only a few and it was very peaceful. My Peak planet team was amazing. They were always ahead of me and did set up a great… Read more “I will definitely recommend Peak Planet to anybody”
I’ve told many people that they need to go now because you may never see Kilamanjaro with NO People on it ever again.
There were five of us in my group. We had the most amazing time!!!!! I realized very quickly that we were there during the covid 19 pandemic and we never saw another person on the mountain until the last day that I made it to the summit. I saw six guys walking out to the… Read more “I’ve told many people that they need to go now because you may never see Kilamanjaro with NO People on it ever again.”
The team has worked very hard to make our trip special and memorable. Great sense of humour too. Loved everything.
I had an excellent time on the climb. Caspar and his team were excellent–they were friendly, supportive, and welcoming. I felt safe throughout the experience, and it was clear that the crew were mindful of covid protocols.
We loved every minute of our trek. There is nothing we would change. We LOVED our trek, guides, and crew. Thank you so much.
I absolutely loved the assistant guides and porters that I got to know. Shout to the guides Joseph, Simon and Emmanuel, they were so much fun! They felt like family at the end of the trip.
@peak_planet thank you for the amazing service both before and during our time climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro. The team that guided and supported us throughout this adventure is one of the big reasons this trip will remain close to my heart forever. Thank you.
Thank you Peak Planet! I cannot imagine a better tour group. Every single person in our crew/family was so kind, accommodating and made our journey pleasant and unforgettable. Davis and his team are top notch!
The guides were top-notch. All of them were just fantastic from their relationships with us to their professionalism on the trail. We had a good time except for all the rain, which was not something anyone could control. I couldn’t have made it up the mountain without all the additional help from the summit porters… Read more “The guides were top-notch.”
All of the other trekking crews could not stop talking about how expert our company was. Casper and Emmanuel, our assistant guide, were incredible throughout the whole climb and have become lifelong friends. Truly the experience is one that we will cherish for the rest of our lives as is the friendship we bear them.… Read more “The crew for this trip was SPECTACULAR!”
Thanks, @peak_planet! We had an amazing trip and couldn’t have done it without you, our guide, Davis, and the great crew!
What an awesome team to help make our journey a complete success. Every detail of our climb was well thought out and discussed to our satisfaction. The support Peak Planet gave us to accomplish our summit was far beyond our expectations. Thank you
Davis, Rebman, and the entire crew were absolutely amazing. We felt fully prepared leading up to the hike, and throughout we really felt like one big family.

Thanks Caspar, Emanuel, Cash, Peter, Alexi , Joseph and the rest of the gang. You guys were excellent!

Davis was a really fantastic guide and an honest, trustworthy person. I would go anywhere with him! Francis was a wonderful cook, overall overseer and much else. Adam was amazing in running the camp and making sure that my tent stayed dry. I had a first-class experience.
Boscoe, Kash, Baraka, and Kennedy were the best! As was all the staff.
The entire crew was phenomenal and every single one of them were instrumental in my success of being able to summit Kilimanjaro. I am very happy with the level of service and support I received from everyone at Peak Planet. I would not hesitate in referring Peak Planet to anyone.
The trip was excellent. The team did everything possible to make us comfortable in challenging weather conditions.
The team themselves were wonderful. And worked well with our faster pace. Everyone was accommodating and helpful along the way to make sure we had the best experience.
You guys knocked this out of the park. The guides were beyond amazing, the food was incredible. This was way better than I thought it would be.
So many crew members, great hospitality, health checks, and clear communication assured that we were all able to summit the mountain. I can’t say enough great things about the company. I also appreciate the restrictions for the porters and that the staff is paid fairly. Davis, our lead guide, took care of us with health… Read more “We had an EXCELLENT trek with Peak Planet”
I will recommend Peak Planet to anyone interested in climbing Kilimanjaro. We had an amazing experience. Our guides and the staff were fantastic!
Amazing family experience from start to finish. All aspects of trip exceeded expectations.
Deo and Kennedy and their team of wonderful porters took such good care of us, making sure that we were well equipped and informed enough to complete our mission to climb to the top. We wouldn’t have done it without them. We are ever so thankful to the team, please extend our gratitude to them… Read more “We are ever so thankful to the team”
Davis, Rebman and the entire staff of porters were beyond our expectations! Our entire group of climbers couldn’t have been happier!
I can not stress enough how fantastic every aspect of our trip was. Everything. I will be writing seller reviews on all sites that I can find for your company, your guides, all of the people that made our trip so wonderful.
The guides were awesome. The group of 11 of us all made it to the summit in no small part because the guides (Casper, Solomon, Emmanuel, Baracka, and Joseph), and porters were EXCELLENT. They were really awesome. Overall, the climb was amazing, the food was very tasty (and we had a cake for a birthday… Read more “I WOULD highly recommend you guys to anyone.”
We had an amazing experience. Casper, Emma, Salomon, Baraca and Joseph were amazing. I got sick on the second day and Casper and Salomon stayed with me the whole time. I couldn’t have made it without them. Also, it is important to mention the work of the porters… the energy they have it’s unbelievable and… Read more “We had an amazing experience”
Caspar, his team of assistant guides (Solomon, Emmanuel, Baracka, and Joseph), and all 44 porters were extremely helpful in providing our group of 11 a very positive and memorable experience.

This trip was amazing. From the booking to the tipping ceremony & everything in between, it was fantastic.

From the booking to the tipping ceremony & everything in between, it was fantastic.”
Bosco (Head Guide) and Kennedy (Asst Head Guide) were best in class. Ivan Charles is ready to advance to become at least an Assistant Head Guide. We were lucky that Ivan was designated as helper and be one of the summit porters. Kennedy, our waiter, also deserves special recognition. Our stomach engineer, Mongoshoh cooked meals… Read more “Bosco and Kennedy were best in class.”
I was impressed with the commitment of the entire staff to our success. Bosco and Rama a great team! It was clear that we had the best crew on the mountain, and we are so fortunate that we booked with Peak Planet.
Casper, Saloman, Emmanual, Joseph, Balaka were absolutely amazing! Not only that, but the entire team provided such an Amazing experience. Talking with other groups, some didn’t even have health checks! Couldn’t believe that. Our group was also obviously the envy of other groups at the camp and the relationship the customers had with the team…… Read more “The Entire Team Provided Such an Amazing Experience”
We absolutely loved our climb! Caspar and Ema were total pros and ensured our safety and well-being during the entire eight days. The Lemosho route was absolutely beautiful and I was glad we took our time with a longer route to acclimate. It was also great knowing that we booked through an organization that treats… Read more “We absolutely loved our climb!”
Msuri was a fantastic leader and it was apparent his team had huge respect for him. I have already recommended him and his team to other potential climbers – I could not fault anyone or any aspect of the climb.

Overall it was a great experience. Guides, crew, food, gear were all great. I enjoyed the service provided by everyone on the crew, which added to the beautiful scenery of the hike.
All the best to Peak Planet, we have so enjoyed working with you and our Kili experience could not have been better.
MSuri, Thomas and Barraka were amazing guides; each of them spent time getting to know the guests while always keeping our health, comfort and welfare as their top priority. Barraka was a great motivator and cheerleader, always leading our chants! Thomas taught us about the mountain, the flora/ fauna, the geology etc and also provided… Read more “All the best to Peak Planet, we have so enjoyed working with you and our Kili experience could not have been better.”
The whole team on the hike was awesome. Bosco, Rama and the rest of the team made us feel as comfortable as you can be, being on a mountain that long. They were high-energy and their positive demeanor kept our spirits high through the whole hike.
Msuri and his team were fabulous! He exuded a quiet confidence that let me know we were in very good hands for the climb. I don’t believe there could be a better guide on the mountain. After the climb we went to Zanzibar and everything went smoothly. I will strongly encourage anyone looking to climb… Read more “I will strongly encourage anyone looking to climb Kilimanjaro to use Peak Planet.”
Caspar and assistant guide Simon were very professional and very knowledgeable about geology, plants, animals, etc. Porters were all very good, too. Only place for improvement would be the toilet tent- thank goodness we had it, but it was a little small and the zipper was worn out so it was a chore to get… Read more “We’ll recommend Peak to others”
The guides and the rest of the support crew were extraordinary in the way that they were always positive, always going out of their way to be helpful and make me more comfortable, lift my spirits, ensure my success in summiting.

The guides and porters amazing skills and knowledge (both on the climb and safari) were incredibly valuable and made our trip as wonderful as it was! I will absolutely recommend Peak Planet to everyone looking for a memorable climb and safari. Thank you!
I experienced tremendous leadership by Davis and the guides, as well as the porters, and professionalism in the climb, camp, food, etc. I highly recommend Peak Planet for this experience.
I am very satisfied with the guides, porters, and everyone involved. The staff in Africa were amazing. I am also very happy to be associated with KPAP and Peak Planet. Davis was the most amazing guide—navigating everyone’s health and safety up the mountain, as well as Redmond, Kennedy, and Raman. I really can’t say enough… Read more “I was very satisfied with the guides, porters, and everyone involved.”
We are very happy with our assistant guides: Baraka and Immanuel. Baraka, he helped Adrien to get down and also carried fresh food to us all the way from down. He was so kind and has excellent knowledge of history and environments. Kudos to Baraka and Immanuel. Immanuel, he is very funny and takes care… Read more “We are very happy with our guides”
Absolutely top notch. The guides (Davis, Rebmon, Kennedy, and Rama), the cook (Francis), the server (Eric), the tent guy (Adam), and the porters were all amazing. The weather was perfect too. I cannot imagine a better trip. The sleeping bag I rented did not seem as warm as advertised. But I had a fleece liner… Read more “Absolutely top notch.”
Davis was OUTSTANDING! We would not have all made it if it wasn’t for his outstanding leadership. Eric was fantastic as well! His enthusiasm, both as our server/waiter and as the leader of dance/song, was contagious.
It was always evident that the guides made our health and safety their number one priority. The seven days going up made the summit day and return that much easier. We had confidence in the decisions the guides made and their descriptions of each segment of the route. Our guides and the planned nutrition provided… Read more “It was always evident that the guides made our health and safety their number one priority.”
The whole team surpassed our groups’ expectations. It seemed that just when they were offering the best possible service and attitudes, it would get even better! This was my second time to bring a large group to climb Kili and I plan to bring more groups in the future with Peak Planet.
Overall this was an amazing adventure surrounded by even more amazing people. Your “ground” crew in Tanzania is bar none professionals. I have been on numerous guided adventures and your team in Tanzania were amongst the elite. Their attention to detail and singular focus on our success on this climb was remarkable. Msuri and Stephen(our… Read more “Thank you for an amazing adventure with amazing people!”
The leaders and porters were the best!!! No complaints. They, in my opinion, are the true ambassadors of Peak Planet. They were committed and represented their country and their company with great pride. They are truly the face of Peak Planet. Will forever be talking about them and their commitment.
Lead guide Casper was remarkable and a truly safety focused leader. His care for our personal safety as well as our preparation for summit night could not have been better. He was in many ways a captain and father for me. My appreciation of him will be life long … I am 69 and could… Read more “Safety is a real deal with the Peak Planet organization”
Thank you SO much. The entire thing was a magical experience.
Overall, the climb/experience was great. Davis, Clarence, Rama, Rebman were all extremely attentive and always on the lookout. With their experience levels, we practically had multiple head guides! They were very patient with our questions and the multiple levels of physical abilities of the client team. The pace was relatively slow, but I should have… Read more “I would highly recommend Peak Planet.”
My entire trip with Peak Planet was amazing !!

It was perfect. Fantastic team and superb guides (Davis and Justine)!
The lead guide was instrumental in making this a successful and memorable trip.
Thanks, we had a great trip. The guides, assistants, and porters were exceptional.
Davis and Rebman were superb.
Our lead guide Davis, and the rest of his team were excellent. We very much enjoyed all the people we had on our team. The 9 day Northern Circuit was excellent as was the hike and camping accommodations.
I thought our Chief guide, Davis, did an outstanding job managing our entire trekking party. There was great camaraderie amongst all the porters, all the trekkers, and all the guides. The group was in synch every day, and that all starts and ends with Davis’ leadership.
I may never climb Kilimanjaro again, but if… Read more “I may never climb Kilimanjaro again, but if I did I would go with Peak Planet again.”
Very pleased with the overall experience. Caspar and his team were amazing (knowledgeable, well-prepared, friendly, helpful, and encouraging)! I also want to give a shout out to one of our porters – Patrick. Patrick consistently stepped up and went the extra mile and would make an excellent assistant guide in near future. Thank you!!
Overall, extremely impressed with the professionalism of everyone involved, from DJ in the US who answered my many inquiries in a timely fashion, to the extraordinary crew, guides and porters who made it all possible. Casper was an excellent head guide who was very competent and intelligent and rigorous.

It was an amazing journey, definitely a life challenge, and we are very happy that we chose Peak Planet. You guys are probably the best out there!
Davis and his assistants (Immanuel, Immanuel, and Rebman) did a FANTASTIC JOB. Davis adjusted how he does things to accommodate our group. He always had safety first followed closely by encouraging us to achieve our goal. I would recommend to friends and highly recommend Davis.
Great trekking company!
The Guides and Porters on our trip with Peak Planet were professional, seasoned and skilled! From day one I felt like their commitment and priority was to our health and safety. The number two priority was for us to have an amazing experience and successfully reach our goal of summiting Kilimanjaro! The Porters were just… Read more “We saw many outfitters on the mountain and we were always proud to be with Peak Planet!”
Our trip was so successful because of the experienced guides that we had. The skill levels, experience, and age of the trekkers varied widely, and that took lots of well-experienced leadership to guide and control the pace of the group rather than individuals going astray. The only information I underestimated was the total preparation and… Read more “Our trip was so successful because of the experienced guides that we had.”
Our 4-Day safari was wonderful. Our trips to Tarangire National Park, Ngorongoro Crater, and Serengeti National park offered many of Tanzania’s beautiful scenery, animals and people. What made this a trip of a lifetime was our guide, Walter Temba. Walter was kind, informative and attentive to all of our needs. He knew where to take… Read more “Our 4-Day safari was wonderful.”
The guides match our personality and were very patient and kind during the entire process.
Our porters took great care of us and made our stay very comfortable.
Caspar and his team were brilliant! All of the guides and porters made us feel very welcome and looked after us well. We had a tough climb but with the support of Caspar and the assistant guides 5 people successfully summited and were brought back down the mountain safely. The journey was as great as… Read more “Thanks for a wonderful and safe journey!”
It was a life changing experience that I’ll never forget and I will be contacting peak planet for future climbs.
Guide Ignas and assistant guide Rama were excellent.
The guides and porters and food were excellent. I had a bit more attention from guides because of my knees and they made sure that every person is in our group of six was good to go next day.
Nothing negative to say
Team was very professional
Great adventure! Thank you!
I had a fantastic experience with Peak Planet, and I would be happy to answer questions from anyone who is looking into a climb.
I can’t say enough good things about how extraordinary Davis was!! Thank you for providing the best guide and great porters.
The guide assistant guide and porters were all brilliant on the mountain. Thanks so much for all the help. I will recommend Peak Planet highly to anyone climbing Kilimanjaro.
Our time on the safari was fantastic. Walter was so accommodating and ensured that he knew exactly what our goals were for the safari. He made sure we were completely satisfied, modifying the days to suit our preferences. We really enjoyed his company throughout the four days. He is a great representative of Peak Planet.… Read more “Allow me to tell you personally how pleased we were with Peak Planet while in Tanzania.”
A wonderful experience!!! Bosco and the entire staff made me feel like a queen. I could not have made the summit without Bosco’s expert tutelage and the help of Richard Machenje, the summit porter.

For our family, it was fantastic due to the true professionalism of our three guides; Msuri, Thomas and Ignes. They were also kind, funny and genuinely invested in our dream of getting to the summit. We are extremely grateful to them. The food was a highlight each day! Patrick the cook just kept on surprising… Read more “This trip was phenomenal!”
Cannot recommend Peak Planet highly enough. Worked with them to plan an adventure that included Mt Kilimanjaro, a safari and s few days to unwind in Zanzibar with three friends.

Amazing crew. Literally, everyone was wonderful from Caspar, Emmanuel, and Joseph on down to some of the sweet porters like Lucas. Just a lovely group of folks.
Peak Planet did a fantastic job. The cook needs to be on one of those cooking shows, were the master chefs have to carry up their gear etc. and compete with the cook we had on our climb. The whole crew was top notch. It was a grand but tiring experience, my suggestion is to… Read more “Peak Planet did a fantastic job!”
Special mention to the excellent care and service provided by Casper (guide), Emanuel (assistant guide), Joseph (tent person and also helped with summit) and Mweta (waiter).
We were a bit cold at night and were using rented sleeping bags. Not sure if that had anything to do with it. Otherwise, everything was fantastic.
By and Far, THE BEST Guides! I watched our guides SAVE clients from other companies without any hesitation!!
Our guides were excellent… Davis on the climb, Walter on safari. We would not have made it up and down without Davis’ flexibility, support, and adaptation. Davis really worked to ensure that the group all made it to the summit. And we did. On safari, Walter was knowledgeable and easy to work with. We saw the”Big… Read more “Our guides were excellent”
Staff was terrific… from start to finish. Dana responded to emails quickly and thoroughly. Ben was informative in each briefing and Davis was encouraging and supportive throughout both treks (Mt. Meru and Mt. Kilimanjaro). The only thing I would change would be to shorten the duration of both descents (Meru and Kilimanjaro). Logistically, this may… Read more “Staff was terrific… from start to finish.”
I loved everything – from the excellent and prompt communication while booking, to the quality gear and services (we LOVED the food), to the amazing guides and porters. I’m telling everyone they have to do Kilimanjaro whether they like hiking or not, and they have to do it with Peak Planet.
When I finally decided to turn this dream of climbing Mount Kilimanjaro into a reality I spent several months researching various companies at different price ranges. After narrowing it down to 6 companies associated with KPAP, I ultimately chose to go with Peak Planet. I was impressed with several aspects of their company such as… Read more “Mount Kilimanjaro, Peak Planet, and Team Caspar stole a piece of my heart.”
We couldn’t be more pleased with our Peak Planet experience.

Our expectations were blown completely out of the water — our guides, Deo… Read more “Thank you for making our Honeymoon so wonderful”

Trek was well organized by our guide Davis.
He and his crew were wonderful including the tent, food arrangements and watching us throughout the trek.
Very well done
Five Stars! Excellent memories were made from an excellent company!
I had a wonderful experience with Peak Planet. On summit night I really appreciated the encouragement from the guides and porters.

If you are considering Kilimanjaro, I have two pieces of advice. One-this mountain is challenging and pre-climb conditioning will be tested. There will be unexpected challenges on the mountain. Like many climbers, this was the hardest physical and mental activity that I have attempted. Secondly-Go with Peak Planet. The summit rate is > 90%.

I was thoroughly impressed with our guides (Davis – lead; Magnus – assistant guide) and the rest of the crew. I would highly recommend the guides.

Overall, I had a truly excellent time.
