What guests are saying about Timbuktu

5 out of 5 stars

Average guest rating

Using Timbuktu was really helpful. Right away, we felt important, cared for and listened to. Thanks to Joanna, communication was super easy - She's a gem, genuinely kind, always responsive and had great advices to share. We did have a bit of a problem when we got to the Serengeti national park, but Joanna stayed available to talk about the issue and followed up as expected. Thank you for helping us realize our dream to visit Tanzania.

Our trip was amazing, in large part due to the customer service, both from Timbuktu as well as their on-the-ground partners in Namibia. We would definitely use Timbuktu again if we are travelling in one of the countries they operate in.

Kilimanjaro Trek

Looming proudly from the grassy plains of Northern Tanzania is Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest peak and the world’s tallest freestanding mountain at 5,895 m. With 5 distinct ecological zones on the slopes ranging from luscious rainforest to barren high-altitude desert, the mountain is one of the most beautiful and dramatic. Technically the climb isn’t a difficult one, but it can be challenging in places. But when you reach the magnificent Ulhuru Peak as dawn breaks over the icy landscape, every blister and bite pales into insignificance. Get involved in the planning of your own Kilimanjaro trek online. Mix and match lodges to create a safari that suits your style and budget.
