African Walking Company

The African Walking Company is a Tanzanian-based outfitter with a good reputation. But you will have trouble booking with them directly. Most likely you’ll end up booking with one of our international agents like Peak Planet.

    How I Rate This Outfitter : ★★★★★

    My husband and I along with our four children, 17,16,15,13 were overwhelmed by all of African Walking Company’s local guides and porters as we navigated along the Rongai route and on to the summit on the 5th day. They all seemed determined to go above and beyond making us feel comfortable and confident about our entire experience in a country and on a mountain with which we were completely unfamiliar. Our meals were outstanding (usually three hot meals served/day in our mess tent), warm tea at the first summit (aahhh), coffee or tea brought to our tent every morning as the guides greeted us with the sunrise.

    Awesome trip with Peak Planet this winter. We did the Shira route and made it to the top with little trouble. We credit their great guides and porters for supporting us throughout the way. I have very fond memories of this trip. I highly recommend climbing with Peak Planet. You won’t be disappointed!

    We did a private trip for 4 people earlier this year with Peak Planet. We were all extremely satisfied with the service we received – everyone was great. The guides and assistants are so helpful on the mountain with their advice, encouragement, explanations and even carrying our stuff once in a while when we struggled. The food, equipment, and hotel accommodations were also above expectations. Really recommend using these guys.

    I climbed with Peak Planet in October on the 6 day Rongai route. It was an amazing experience. 12 of 12 people made it to the summit for the most beautiful sunrise I’ve ever witnessed. I can’t say enough about the guides and assistant guides and porters, who comprised such an unbelievable support team and took care of us through the expedition. One of the best companies on the mountain from what I hear and I can see why.
