In Kiswahili, the word “kabisa” means complete. At Afrikabisa, we provide all-around extraordinary experiences and adventures to our guests. We also aim to support our entire community by providing honorable working opportunities to local men and women.
We conduct our business in the way that best serves our local community that relies heavily on the tourism industry. You can be sure that your Afrikabisa climbing crew is paid fairly, provided nutritious meals and adequate equipment, and always treated with dignity and respect.

Afrikabisa isn’t just your guide on the mountain or safari – we’re your personal concierge for your entire trip. We are happy to provide transportation from and to the airport, help you pick up any additional gear you may need, and provide recommendations on how to spend your free time in Tanzania.
The terrain of Kili may be challenging, but our tours are designed with your comfort in mind. We provide high-quality, spacious tents and stretcher camping beds to help you get a good night’s sleep. You’ll enjoy chef-prepared meals in a communal dining tent complete with quality dishware and linens. Plus, you’ll find pleasant surprises and delights throughout the journey, such as hot tea at important checkpoints and the summit.
As tour operators, we are responsible for your health and well-being. Our certified guides are trained in emergency first aid, and we constantly monitor guests for altitude-related illnesses. Afrikabisa is also committed to environmental sustainability and strictly adheres to the Leave No Trace policy of Kilimanjaro National Park.
There are several routes to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro and options for a safari to witness wildlife. Our tour packages are customized for individuals and groups. We will ask you for some basic information, such as how many days your trip will be and what you’re looking to experience. From there, we can recommend itineraries and provide pricing options.
As a locally owned and operated company, we can provide unique and authentic Tanzanian experiences. Our guests learn from and closely interact with our local porters and support team. We feel that these relationships are essential for a successful trek. Together, we enthusiastically celebrate each milestone of the journey with traditional singing and dancing.
Afrikabisa also has connections to offer cultural immersion experiences that you can add to your trip itinerary.
At Afrikabisa, your support team does more than carry your gear and cook your food. They share their knowledge of the mountain, provide an authentic cultural experience, and motivate you throughout the journey.
Afrikabisa was incredibly welcoming and offered such a genuine and exciting experience. I think what really sets them a part is their willingness to listen, curate and improve their tours every single time which again, shows their authenticity and that they truly care. It also allows them to closely tend to their customer's well-being and experience.
Hendry and his team combine knowledge with enthusiasm and expertise in order to provide what can only be described as a first rate, unparalleled experience…. Every single guide and porter was passionate about helping me reach the summit in a safe, responsible manner.
Afrikabisa was a phenomenal company to guide my trek up Mt. Kilimanjaro. I left that mountain feeling like I gained a family. The guides and porters anticipated our every move and provided care that was at a level higher than I could have ever expected. They taught us about the mountain and made every step of the trip better.
