Overview

Tanzania is a melting pot of around 125 peacefully co-existing ethnic groups. Of these, the tribe you’re most likely to have heard about is the Maasai. The Maasai have a rich cultural tradition and this includes crafts such as beautiful beadwork and intricate hairstyles that articulate the wearer’s position and stage of life.

This immersive, fascinating two-day tour gives you an in-depth experience of authentic Maasai culture and traditions. You’ll spend a day and overnight with the Maasai people in the 100% traditionally built boma (village) of Olpopongi. Olopongi is a purpose-built cultural heritage centre that’s run by the Maasai themselves.

Olopongi is where you’ll get to know Maasai art and dance, spiritual customs, medical and herbal practices, crafts and, of course, their hearty and tasty cuisine. You’ll be shown round the village with its teeny-tiny museum, and you’ll enjoy a herbal walk in the bush, guided by Maasai herbal specialists. Spend the evening in deep cross-cultural conversation around the campfire before you drift off to sleep in a traditional Maasai hut.

Machame Route to the summit of Kilimanjaro We did the 7 day Machame route through GMExpeditions and they were fantastic. Our group numbered 14 in total and we were accompanied by a staff of 9 guides and 50 porters. The staff were very accommodating, friendly, and supportive. Thank you for everything! I would highly recommend this company.

A wonderful adventure with GM Expeditions While summiting Mt. Kilimanjaro is a wonderful, individual accomplishment, it is never done alone. For our February 2023 climb, our group of 14 hikers were supported by a talented and hardworking team of guides, cooks and porters from GM Expeditions. Before the climb, I mentioned to owner Godlisten Moshi that I was fascinated to see how this was all going to work, how you move a team of climbers up (and down) a mountain for seven days. And it IS amazing! From first-thing-in-the-morning “breakfast tea” to morning singing before hiking to the sight of our bright yellow tents waiting for us at every new camp, I marveled at GM Expedition’s efficiency and thoughtfulness. First we had a a wonderful group of knowledgable and supportive guides who helped us hike deliberately yet safely and slowly (pole pole!) Second, the resourceful cooks and humorous serving staff kept us well-fed and well-entertained with a constantly changing menu that helped us overcome our altitude-induced lack of appetite. And finally the porters! Strong and sure-footed, they ensured that every camp - despite the ever-changing weather - was a welcoming respite after a long day on the mountain. We were a group ranging in ability and age (24 to 76), yet GM Expeditions amazingly made it possible for us to all summit together. The satisfaction I feel when I look at the photo of our team and guides in front of the iconic summit signage is a testament to GM Expedition’s skill at leading groups up Kili. I am forever grateful.

Mt. Kilimanjaro with Safari I went on a trek to Mt. Kilimanjaro with a group. Our local guide company, GM Expeditions, more than met my expectations in our attempt to summit Uhuru Peak on Mt. Kilimanjaro. The accommodations on this adventure were luxurious for a backpack and the food was excellent and more than enough. Most importantly, Godlisten and his crew of porters and guides, left a major impact with their thoughtful and caring actions throughout. With them, this challenging hike became an enjoyable and fun experience. Especially, Emmanuel Temba, who without his help and support, I couldn't have gone as far as I did. I will be forever grateful for his and their kindness. A few of us continued on a safari to Tarangire NP, Ngorongoro Crater, and Serengeti NP with a driver and guide from GM Expeditions, Ezekiel. Not only was he a great driver, he knew the parks' secrets and we saw every animal imaginable. He was also flexible in honoring requests to shop and visit the Maasai tribe. Again, lodging was beautiful and the food and service were excellent, including our packed lunches. All in all, a wonderful and exciting experience!

Ein unvergessliches Abenteuer auf dem Kilimandscharo mit der Lemocho Route Ich bin Ende Januar mit GMExpeditions auf den Kilimandscharo gestiegen. Ich habe diese Informationen vor meiner Reise vermisst und hoffe, dass sie euch bei eurer Planung helfen werden: 1. Wenn ihr plant, den Berg zu besteigen, kann ich euch empfehlen, einen lokalen Veranstalter wie GMExpeditions zu wählen, anstatt eines internationalen wie Zara. Lokale Veranstalter haben ein besseres Netzwerk zu Guides, Trägern und Köchen. Die Guides verfügen über viel Erfahrung und können gesundheitliche Probleme, insbesondere in Bezug auf die Höhe, besser einschätzen. Sie wissen auch, wie sie deine Leistungsfähigkeit bewerten und können dir hilfreiche Auskünfte geben. Die Köche bereiten eine Vielzahl von schmackhaften Speisen zu, was besonders in der Höhe wichtig ist, wenn der Appetit nachlässt. Schließlich tragen die zuverlässigen Helfer zum gesamten Erlebnis bei. Sie sind schnell am Camp, bauen die Zelte an den besten Plätzen auf und fallen nur sehr selten aus. 2. Wenn ihr auf den Berg geht, empfehle ich euch, ein Wasserfiltersystem mitzunehmen. Das Trinkwasser wird aus Bächen gewonnen und obwohl es abgekocht wird, geschieht dies nicht immer bei 100°C und auch nicht besonders lange. Zur Desinfektion werden Chlortabletten verwendet, aber ich persönlich fand den Geschmack kaum zu ertragen.Für wenig mehr Geld gibt es mechanische Wasserfiltersysteme, die bereits viele Keime ausfiltern können. 3. Ihr könnt die Reise ruhig alleine antreten, habt keine Angst davor: Es ist nicht immer leicht jemanden zu finden, der mit einem den Berg besteigen möchte. Viele Bergsteiger reisen alleine und es bilden sich hier oft tolle Freundschaften. Gerade größere Gruppen orientieren sich häufig am Tempo der langsamsten Teilnehmer. Das kann bei den langen täglichen Touren mitunter sehr anstrengend werden.

An unforgettable adventure of a lifetime. Our trip was amazing. Our drivers/guides (Musa & Ezekeal) were extremely knowledgeable and enjoyable. We did the 6 day safari. All of our accommodations were exceptional and the food was great. We saw over 30 lions with many baby cubs, a leopard and a couple of cheetahs. Water Buffalo, giraffes, elephants, zebras (just to name a few. Too much to name) that were right outside our vehicle. We will remember this trip with family forever. Thank you for making this trip unforgettable. Steve & Vicki Humphreys

This is who you want o take you to the top of Africa!!! Especially as a senior Every interaction with hogue company was wonderful. Absolutely loved the crew of 25 that got us to the top of Kilimonjaro. Chichibaba was our team leader and guide. He spoke excellent English and couldn’t have more caring and helpful. Th e whole crew was superb! I don’t think we would have been successful without them. Loved The singing and dancing to motivate us. I’m 66 and my husband is 68 years young. And afterward Godlisten organized a wonderful three day Safari for us. Mussla was a great guide. All the hotels between times were so wonderful as well
