Kilimanjaro Company Review: Kilimanjaro Tanzanite Safaris
This local company in Tanzania has been spamming my Kilimanjaro blog with their links, so I thought I would do a proper review and see what they have
Well, to be brutally honest, it looks like this company, Kilimanjaro Tanzanite Safaris, is a standard Tanzanian company – they offer everything, but nothing that’s different from anyone else. It’s just meat and potatoes tour. They have copied a bunch of material, text and pictures from around the Internet and then posted it in no logical order with lots of strange colors, fonts and advertisements. It fact, I have even found information that I have written on their site. Thanks guys!
I have heard of this company once before, but having spent about the last seven years organizing tourism in Tanzania, I have never heard of anyone that has went on any of their trips. They are a registered member company by Tanzania Association of Tour Operators, which does add some validity,and say they have been in business for 18 years.
Since this website looks a bit shady, this is a classic reason why some people choose to buy through a reputable and trustworthy company, one they can call on the phone. Don’t get me wrong, this could be a great company and it probably has cheap prices, but it doesn’t feel safe to me. They are not even located in Moshi, the town at the base of Kilimanjaro, but actually in Arusha, about 1 hour from the mountain.
The only contact information is an email address and a PO Box.
