The Best Kilimanjaro Guide Company
After all of my research, I chose to climb Kilimanjaro with Peak Planet. I was pleased that they treated their staff well, as supported by their membership in the Kilimanjaro Porter Assistance Project (KPAP) and the International Mountain Explorer Connection's Partnership for Responsible Travel. My wallet was pleased that they were a mid-level priced company who offered the excellence of a luxury operator.
Based in the United States, Peak Planet was very easy to communicate with and was responsive to my queries. Their USA staff was knowledgeable given that they have personally climbed Kilimanjaro themselves.
Peak Planet operates their treks at a very high standard that matches the services offered by their expensive counterparts. So much so that celebrities, who can afford to climb with anyone, have chosen them to lead them to the top of Kilimanjaro. The company has been recommended in travel books as a strong, reputable company and have a client satisfaction rate of nearly 100%. Irrespective of price, Peak Planet is one of the best Kilimanjaro guide companies. But when you factor in their mid-level pricing, Peak Planet is THE best Kilimanjaro operator.
I had a wonderful experience with Peak Planet.
We had 12 people in our party and everyone of us made it to the summit, a 100% success rate! Our guides said this was typical - that they get their clients to the top almost 100% of the time. The average on the mountain for all operators is only about 50%! We could not have done it without our guides, who diligently helped us every step of the way. Needless to say, I was very impressed with the entire company and crew, which is why I can recommend them as your Kilimanjaro climb operator.
I am fully confident that they will take care of you as well as they took care of me.
I hope this site was helpful to you. Most of all, have a fun, safe climb, regardless of who you choose.
