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. The staff who accompanied, besides Bosco and Richard, included Frankie Nguma (Camp Master), Edward Mushy (Waiter), Elphas Kishingo (Chef extraordinaire), Michael… Read more “A wonderful experience!!!”
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. From start to finish, they were phenomenal. Several months of research and interviewing other tour companies, brought me to the conclusion that booking with Peak… Read more “Cannot recommend Peak Planet highly enough. From start to finish, they were phenomenal.”
Our guides were beyond amazing! All of our sweet porters were wonderful! Huge thanks to Caspar, EMA, Joseph, and Mwita for making the trip so amazing!!
Peak Planet exceeded all of our expectations. From the early stages of planning to trekking up to the summit all of our needs were carefully considered and any questions were promptly answered. Ignas and his team were incredibly kind, cheerful and motivating, creating the perfect atmosphere for the climb. We are forever grateful to Dana,… Read more “Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!”
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. From the very beginning, Dana was so helpful in helping us identify the right route and timing of the trip, responding promptly to our *many* emails with concerns, questions, and various inquiries. Our expectations were blown completely out of the water — our guides, Deo… Read more “Thank you for making our Honeymoon so wonderful”
Porters great. Bosco the leader great. Latrines great. Soup and tea and food great. Encouragement from porters great.
Absolutely loved the trip, very well organized and planned. As a solo female traveler, I was very well looked after and would definitely recommend Peak Planet
Pickup from the airport was on time. The accommodation was good with friendly staff and delicious food in the hotel. 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. Instead of forcing us to go fast (like the other companies) our porters and guides sang to us all the way to the top! I will be recommending this company to all my fellow… Read more “I will be recommending this company to all my fellow hikers!”
Excellent service from the guide Davis and all of his crew. Equipment was in best condition and staff were able to fix any issues during the climb. Food was good and the crew was willing to help with smiles anytime. I would highly recommend peak planet.
From start to finish, everything about Peak Planet was top notch. I did a lot of research online and looked at many different companies, hoping to find the best one — and definitely know we found the best! For starters, love that Peak Planet is part of KPAP. That should be one of the top… Read more “Peak Planet was top notch”
Just from start to finish the whole trip has been a life-changing experience. Casper our guide was amazing, he took his time to get to know each person and his skills were endless.

What a team!… Read more “Thank you for making our honeymoon an unforgettable trip!”
Davis and team were superb. Watching Davis lead and grow other leader was exceptional and the entire trip was seamless.
The guides, the climb, the food, the route, the porters, the equipment on Kilimanjaro exceeded all my expectations. What an incredible team! It was an unforgettable experience. I saw other guiding companies during the trek and Peak Planet was by far the best in terms of organization, porters, and guides to clients ratio, top of… Read more “Well done Peak Planet! “
Incredible trip and extremely impressed with the organizational leadership of Peak Planet. From the booking process to the actual climb, all was a wonderful experience.

The guides and porters were amazing. Made the trip wonderful. The gear list was very helpful, stick to the list and you have all the gear you need.
The guides and porters were amazing. It would be good to get more information on what peak planet are doing to ensure they are paid fairly and have good treatment whilst on the mountain. I am glad you ask Laura. Here at Peak Planet, we strive to have our porters treated well. We are members… Read more “The guides and porters were amazing.”
I couldn’t have been happier. From Dana’s prompt and helpful responses to Davis and the crew going above and beyond to ensure our trek was safe, enjoyable, and successful. I’ll be recommending Peak Planet to everyone.
Ben was great and handled all arrangements, including driving me to the start on a special schedule. Everything very smooth. Davis was a great guide and the crew was amazing. Francis, Adam, Eric, Joseph, Redman, Willson, etc., what a great crew. Super experience. On the Safari David was an amazing guide and we were thrilled… Read more “Thanks for a great experience!”

Guides and porters were all professional, friendly and helpful. I can’t say enough good things about the entire staff on our trip. EXCELLENT. Medical checks and the amount of food served was outstanding. PP did a great job guiding us through a blizzard on our summit night/day.
Davis and Magnus were our guides and they were outstanding! They were so knowledgeable and made our hike a safe and unforgettable experience. Both my husband and I are physicians and we were both very impressed by the medical knowledge and experience of our guides. They kept us safe and healthy throughout the hike and… Read more “I wanted to just let you all know how much my husband and I loved our Kili climb!”
The porters and guides were great always willing to go beyond and provide help by anticipating needs.
My husband and I recently summited Kilimanjaro from the Lemosho route with the help of the Peak Planet staff.

The entire staff paid attention to detail and seem to genuinely care for our well-being and success. We… Read more “It was the journey that continues to tug at my heart.”

It was obvious from the first briefing that Peak Planet was the superior outfit to climb Kili with… Guides were amazing, maybe if they could have name badges it would help??? always smiling and willing to help.

Right from the beginning my questions were answered – and there were a lot, Dana was very good at eliminating any stress I may have had.

The… Read more “Peak Planet is the ONLY company you should climb Kili with.”
Thanks, Dana. The trip was amazing! You have a great team with Davis and his crew. I did not end up going down into the crater as I didn’t have the energy on summit day but I really enjoyed the parts that I did see from the top. The entire week was an experience of… Read more “You have a great team with Davis and his crew!”
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%. Along… Read more “Peak Planet stood out from the other outfitters”
I was thoroughly impressed with our guides (Davis – lead; Magnus – assistant guide) and the rest of the crew. I would highly recommend the guides. The quality of their service and the quality of the food on the mountain surpassed my expectations. I will definitely recommend Peak Planet to friends looking to hike Kilimanjaro.
I had decently high expectations for the trip, but Peak Planet still surpassed them. I was amazed by how good the food was! The whole crew that made the trip possible were absolutely amazing – everyone was very welcoming and they all did their jobs seamlessly.

I saw your Instagram post that other proud vegans summited with Peak Planet. You all put on an amazing production and should take deep pride in what you do!
Overall, I had a truly excellent time. Caspar is a very impressive guide, both in terms of his work with clients but also his manager skills (I can’t even begin to imagine what is involved in organizing a staff of 39 on the mountain). Emmanuel, our ‘chief’ assistant guide was also excellent, as were the… Read more “I had a truly excellent time”
We did the Northern Circuit and the trip was great. Five Stars!
I did the Lemosho Route with our wonderful guide, Casper. Overall Rating = 5 Stars
Great trip. Very satisfied with Peak Planet and have already started recommending your company to my colleagues.

Medical checkups were very well executed and necessary. Guides did a great job ensuring everyone was healthy and fit to continue with their trek at high altitude.
Thanks to everyone at Peak Planet for an amazing Kilimanjaro trek followed by an equally wonderful 7-day Safari trip in June 2017.

Not only are the porters and guides the nicest people you could hope to meet, but what they manage to create, cook and build for you up a mountain is quite unbelievable. Before going, I was told by everyone who had climbed Kili to take my own food and condiments because it was inedible… not… Read more “They are truly a remarkable company.”

August was a brilliant guide – confident, calm, in control and experienced. I can’t speak highly enough of him. The tents were the best on the mountain and food was superb. I couldn’t have had a better trip – thanks to the entire team at Peak Planet – one very happy customer!
I climbed with the best guides, assistant guides and porters. All the guides were motivating, encouraging and most importantly made sure that we were always safe. They never let us walk alone. They were also very professional and experienced.
Overall, it was a great experience and I had all the information needed before the trip and during the trip. Absolutely outstanding guides, porters, helpers, cook !!
Our trip is over and we all summited Uhuru Peak – thank you for the great support and service. I just want to also say we had a great guide Joshua – he was amazing and we received amazing service!
I had a really great time. Thanks for the trip of a lifetime.
