I have traveled throughout the world and trekking in Nepal but I have never encountered such an exceptional company that if I had to rate it 1-10 it would get an 11. Sabino, his crews especially Shany, Respick, Bonny, and all porters made this trek a lifetime of memories which will carry my daughter throughout her life. If you are looking for a trekking, a safari or the beaches of Zanzibar, you will never find a better company based in Tanzania than Popote Africa Adventures. Thank Sabino. This was an amazing experience.
A newly made friend and I climbed Kilimanjaro with Dickson and Suranga via the Machame route the last week of January. This was defenititely one of the best trips I've ever taken in my life. Thanks to Popote Africa Adventures. We became very close with the Popote porters and guides and they made us feel like family the whole way through. I even had the chance after the climb to spend time with the crew touring around Moshi and going to their villages to see how they live their lives. It was definitely one of the biggest highlights of the trip. The other big difference I noticed with Popote compared to the other group tours was the individual attention that the guides and porters gave to both of us based on our individual needs and skill levels. Popote will exceed your expecations every step of the way. I am now planning my next adventure with Popote to climb Mount Meru and go on an African Safari! I highly recommend going down into the crater/pit once you get to the top as it was one of the most magical places you will see on the trek!
This company was able to accommodate me as a solo traveler last minute with another solo traveler on a wonderful 3-day safari. Many other companies would not book a solo-traveler-only group. The trip was incredible and our safari driver was an extremely knowledgeable fellow who really looked after us. I would highly recommend this safari trekking company to everyone especially solo female travelers. They also arranged a one-day safari for another traveler who was volunteering at the same medical clinic for a good price.
