Tour Tips
  • Start low, like some ‘14’ers’ in Colorado, and build your way up to higher peaks in South America or Nepal
  • Find out exactly what climbing equipment you need to bring and what is provided by the tour company
  • Ditto for food - is lunch included or do you need to pack your own? Food equals energy in the mountains and you want plenty of both!
  • Some climbing trips require internal flights to access a trail head. Find out if the cost is included in your overall tour price.
  • If in doubt when packing, throw it in! You can always rearrange and omit certain items once you arrive at your destination, but finding technical climbing gear once there might be a challenge.

Great care and service from Agama Tours and Safaris

The Big 5

5.0 November 2016 Agama Tours Recommend: Yes Great care and service from Agama Tours and Safaris. From first mail communication was fast and helpful. Kabalo and Lara helped customized our perfect private safari in Tanzania. 8 days including Tarangire, Lake Manyara, Serengeti and Ngorongoro. The lodges, tent camps, and transportation were all excellent. We are still in disbelief to how amazing our guide was, Emanuel. A professional animal finder, knowledgable, passionate and above all, wonderful friend we have made. I would recommend to anyone traveling to Tanzania! Read more

Incredible!

Wilderness Camping

5.0 September 2016 Agama Tours Recommend: Yes Had an amazing trip in Serengeti and Ngorongoro with Agama Tours. Me and 3 other friends went for a 4 day, 3 night safari in the wilderness of Tanzania. Went with them after a recommendation from a friend. So happy we did. Although we tried different companies quotes, Agama's was the most attractive and professional.

Had an absolute wonderful time with our fabulous guide Felisi! Pick up on time at our hotel and off we went! Loved every minute of the trip. Felisis great humour, knowledge about all nature and wildlife and professionalism made us very comfortable. The tented Wild Camps in Serengeti and Ngorongoro were very nice and luxurious to be at! Great food and cool views.

Big thanks to Lara and Kabalo for organizing this wonderful trip for us

Wonderful experience!

Lemosho Route

5.0 August 2015 Ultimate Kilimanjaro Recommend: Yes Just did the Lemosha Route with a successful summit climb. August and his crew were great, they were very knowledgeable and provided whatever assistance anyone needed. Chef Paul kept us so well fed that the threatened loss of appetite at altitude never happened. Our porters amazed us daily with their strength and agility hauling their loads up and down the mountain. The Lemosha Route is gorgeous with beautiful and changing views of Kilimanjaro as you make your way up to Barafu Camp. After the long march down we did a 6 day Safari and again had a wonderful experience. Tito our guide was very knowledgeable about the birds, animals and plants, we saw the "Big Five" and more! I highly recommend Ultimate Kilimanjaro. Read more

Amazing !!

Wilderness Camping

5.0 June 2015 Agama Tours Recommend: Yes Amazing trip organized by Agama Tours and Safaris. Big thanks to lovely Lara and Kabalo for making our dream family trip to Tanzania a reality.
At airport we were greeted by our fantastic guide Manyama who led us through the next 9 days. His knowledge and passion about animals and his warm personality. He really did everything in his power to make this an enjoyable trip for all the family members.
A perfect combination of wildlife game viewing, cultural visits and very fun biking day. Lake Manyara, Serengeti and Ngorongoro did not disappoint anybody and Manyama's skills for finding the animals were just impeccable. Accommodation was very nice and comfortable at every location.
Unforgettable vacation and we couldn't recommend Agama Tours and Safaris more highly!

Great safari with great guide and comfortable accommodation

Beauty and the Beast - Adventure Tanzania Safari

5.0 May 2014 Agama Tours Recommend: Yes First of all I have to say the communication with Agama Tours was excellent from the beginning of my enquiry. The team was very helpful and made all our wishes to our dream itinerary come true.
Pick up at our hotel on time and away we went. Lake Manyara, Serengeti and Ngorongoro for the wildlife viewing combined with a fantastic day of hiking and biking through Ngorongoro Conservation Area to elephant caves and waterfall and another day visiting Hadzabe bushmen and Karatu Community market. Really we are so grateful we put those 2 cultural days in between the wildlife viewing. It was a great opportunity to see more of the real Tanzania and not just the wildlife, although the animals amazing of course! Stepping out of the car for a bit and taking that adventurous bike and hike through the very fascinating and uneven land of the area was truly an experience.
Our guide Felisi was excellent! Had great skills in finding animals and nice information to tell us about them.
The car we had was in excellent condition. Accommodation was a mix of lodges and tented camps. The Wild Camps in the Serengeti and Ngorognoro was absolutely great, nice food and great staff. The other overnights were also very fine at the Flamingo Lodge and Ahadi Lodge.
Recommend Agama 100% :)

Climbing & Mountaineering Trips & Tour Advice

Want to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro? How about some serious Himalaya action? Maybe you're eyeing Cotopaxi in Ecuador or Pico Duarte in the Dominican Republic?? The Rockies in the U.S. and Canada always beckon, as do the smaller Munros of Scotland. If there's a climbable mountain, you can probably find an outfitter to take you there. We'll help.

There’s are few things better than cresting a ridge to find yourself on the top of a mountain. Whether it be five or fifteen thousand feet, reaching a peak is both a literal and metaphorical accomplishment. Luckily for amateur climbers and mountaineers, there are no lack of mountains around the world, and many climbing trips can be combined with other guided or adventure travel itineraries for non-climbing travel companions.

Popular Climbing Destinations

The United States offers many options for climbers and mountaineers - from the granite slabs in Yosemite National Park to Washington State’s volcanoes, including Mount Rainier, there is something for every ability and skill level. Farther afield, Mexico invites climbers from around the world to experience their volcanoes, including Orizaba and Popocatepetl, both of which are within close proximity to the museums and culinary delights of Mexico City. Further south, the Andes mountains include gems like Cotapaxi and Chimborazo in Ecuador, Chopaqualki and Yannapancha in Peru, and Aconcagua in Argentina, standing as the tallest mountain in the Western Hemisphere at nearly 23,000 ft (7,000 meters). A classic trip would be to pair the flair of Buenos Aires plus the wine and culinary mecca of Mendoza with an exhilarating summit bid on Aconcagua, which requires a minimal amount of climbing experience.

Of course, every mountaineer dreams of stepping foot on the massive, storied, and sacred peaks of the Himalaya, especially in Nepal. Everest, which is reserved only for those with extensive high-altitude climbing experience, is far from the only famous mountain in the region. For begineer climbers, try the ‘trekking’ peaks of Island Peak and Lobuche. For the more experienced, Ama Dablam beckons with it’s near perfect conical form and location just off the main trekkers route to Everest Base Camp.

Questions to Ask Your Tour Company

Once you’ve decided on your destination, there are a few key pieces of information you’ll want to obtain from your chosen climbing guide. What meals are included? What personal climbing equipment is required and what can be rented on site? Are the guides all certified mountain guides with First Aid and/or Wilderness First Aid training? What is the acclimatization plan (pace of the climb). Are there any tour options for non-climbing partners or travel companions? For example, many operators offer trekking options in the same region where climbers will be attempting their summit bid. All in all, a climbing trip can leave you exhausted but filled with a deep sense of personal accomplishment as you push your physical boundaries further than you ever thought possible.
