Zicasso Expeditions is by far the best Growing trekking company. in this trek we were group of 4, I was impressed that the way we welcomed at Kilimanjaro international and transfer to the Tulia Hotel and Spa at Arusha City, Zicass Expeditions is member of Kilimanjaro Ports Associations - KPA and from my initial email onward I continued to be impressed.
I did the Machame 7 day trek, the day before the trek we met our amazing chief guide, Erastus, who patiently went through everything with us and ensured that we all felt prepared. Throughout the entire trek, I could tell that our health and safety was number one to our guides, as they took our medical checks and any new symptoms of altitude sickness very seriously. Additionally, everyone on the trek (Zicasso crews) were the most positive people on the mountain. We were greeted at the end of each hiking day by our porters singing us songs in Swahili.
On the summit night our guides sang songs for two hours straight to motivate us to keep going up the mountain, â€œpole poleâ€ was the main slogan. No one else from any other trekking company seemed as genuinely happy as Zicasso team. I could not have made it to the summit without this wonderful team!
Thank you to our chief guide, Erastus, for being such an amazing leader, our assistant guides Hasan and Mangi for helping us every step of the way, and to the porters for working tirelessly to help us succeed. It is fun if you opt Zicasso Expeditions for the Kilimanjaro trek.

I have never climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro before, this was my first trek experience, solo travelers who joined a group three and took 7 days Marangu route but one of us failed to summit Uhuru peak. A group had 3 people in total and our guides managed every single activity very well. Erastus who was a chief guide is a very professional guide. every day was different, â€œPole Poleâ€ is the slogan to successful summit, prepare for any climate from rain to snow fall, an average healthy person can easily make to the top, prepare yourself by doing frequent walking, jogging, swimming, if possible hiking. Listen to your guide & body! Pole Pole is a mountain slogan! If you like Kilimanjaro trekking it should be the first in your mind
Kivaria, a Zicasso Expeditions director is very kind and humble he has never got tired to reply to my endless questions before I arrival, he organize very well our meet with a guide Erastus a day before trek start. They listen to him and even his staff like him especially guides. This growing company is doing great and I can see its future. Everything was well organized and professional. We had awesome trekking. Take your lifetime adventure on Kilimanjaro
