I recently completed a successful climb to Uhuru Peak with Frank Leonard as my guide on a 6 day Rongai route. Frank demonstrated professionalism, preparedness, enthusiasm and a general confidence in helping me make this journey a success.

As a solo female traveler, I had come with some reservations about what to expect for the hike. Upon our initial meeting before the journey, Frank put my nerves to ease with his knowledge and calm nature about the trek. His encouragement and consciousness to check in on my well being throughout each day reaffirmed my confidence and ability in myself and the team.

I am very please I was paired with Frank as my guide and would without hesitation recommend him to anyone else looking to hike Kilimanjaro.

Excellant Guide

Frank Leonard was one of the guides that I thank for helping me through the 7 day Rongai route. It was an absolute pleasure to be guided by Frank, who is an extremely humble man with a very professional attitude towards his work.

I found Frank to be very approachable and was always happy to have a chat and a laugh
throughout the trek. His gentle character was very much appreciated as he was always enquiring about the welfare of myself and my fellow climbers. Frank was generous with his time, knowledge and care of all of the climbers throughout the trek. His gentle personality certainly made the trek more manageable and enjoyable!

Frank Leonard is an excellent guide, and I am very grateful that I have had the opportunity to meet and climb Kilimanjaro with him. Many thanks to Frank and the rest of the team for such a great climb!

Dear Team Kilimanjaro,

having meanwhile returned home after a fantastic visit to Tanzania, I would very much like to express my thanks to your organization, the team who took us to the top of Kibo was just excellent.

Our chief guide Hesbon Gohoti might have already notified you, but just to confirm I have given the following tips to him for appropriate distribution among the team:

560 USD (on behalf of Johan Verlinden & Katrin Schutte) plus
600 USD (on behalf of Neil and Katie Mclean)

I would like to mention as well that also the guidance we received from Frank Leonard who functioned as assistant guide in our trek was outstanding. In our view, he would also be a very capable chief guide. If there is any other place where we or other trekkers of our group could endorse this recommendation for Frank please let us know.

We will warmly recommend Team Kilimanjaro to other people who became interested to climb the mountain based on our experience.

Only comment for improvement I'd like to make is that the mess tent where meals are served for the trekkers might need replacement soon (does not fully close anymore / leaks through the roof).

Thanks again,
Katrin Schutte & Johan Verlinden
