I am VERY glad that I chose Ahmed to organize this trip! I did not personally have lots of time to research the trip, but I didn’t have to worry. Ahmed at Atlantic Adventure Diving booked two trips for myself and two of my friends.

One was a 5-day hike/climb up the Machame route of Mount Kilimanjaro, and the other was a 4-day safari, both in Tanzania, Africa. Ahmed planned everything, down to the precise details of organizing cab drivers to get us from our hotel to the airport (we were all leaving at different times) as well as recommending restaurants and activities in Arusha in the free day that we had between the hike and the safari.

We saw other tour groups having to turn around on the last day before they made it to the summit. This could have been for a variety of different factors (perhaps we acclimatized better, etc.) but I must say that we would NOT have been able to reach the summit if it weren’t for our encouraging and determined guides! They were even happily singing at altitudes of 5000m+ … pretty crazy, but very motivating! We also saw all the animals we could have hoped for during the safari, and had a great guide there too.

Food was fantastic throughout! I highly recommend Ahmed Nassrat as well as Atlantic Adventure Diving.
