We climbed Kilimanjaro with Focus in Africa. Our lead guide was Babaluu. He and his team were awesome. We received the best customer care and were able to make it to the summit. We could not have done it with all 22 of the porters/guides. Thank you.

Living with and teaching the kids at Good Hope Orphanage, counseling HIV/AIDS victims, climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro, and going on safari: all of this was made possible thanks to the impeccable planning and guidance provided by Communities and Adventures.

I can highly recommend Communities and Adventures for your climb of Kilimanjaro. Nelson Mbise made sure I had everything for the climb and made the whole trip a success. Stay away from the big overpriced companies and set yourself up with a great non-profit organization.

My hubby and I spent had a great experience with Communities and Adventures. We only have positive things to say about Communities and Adventures. Everything ran smoothly, from the being picked up at the airport at 1:30AM when we arrived to both the Kili Climb and the Safari.
