We spent 3 days with Mike and Sulivano from Gladiola Adventure for a trip to Ol Doinyo Lengai and Lake Natron. It was very well organized, with very friendly people and in amazing places! They have good connection with Maasai villages so you will be walking to waterfalls, lake Natron and the mount Lengai with a local Maasai guide. W... More

We chose the least expensive option for a 4 day safari, which Included visiting Ngorongoro Cater, the Serengeti National Park and Lake Manyara. This meant that we stayed in public camping sites in the Serengeti and Ngorongoro and in a priavate camping space near lake Manyara. On the one hand, the experience was adventourous and we had to adpat to... More

Claiming Kilimanjaro in 7 days was the turfiest yet the most interesting experience in my life (Thanks Gladiola Adventure). After this experience believe me you will have more respect to our planet.

I did a 3 day Safari with Gladiola Adventure and had a blast. The owner and his team are very hard working people, always attentive to what their clients need and want. Giving you the best personalised experience is their first priority, quality is what defines them. It's worth mentioning that Didas, the owner, runs a school that makes a... More

Knowing very little about the area, I went to Arusha to look around and in particular to climb Mount Kilimanjaro. I did not particularly like the pre-packaged tours that took you to the summit and returned straight away. Thankfully I found Gladiola Adventure. They helped me research more interesting ways to walk up and around Kili and provided good equipment... More

Whilst in Arusha we used Gladiola adventures. The staff were friendly and able to accommodate all aspects of any areas of Tanzania we wished to visit - not always available with larger more inflexible tour companies. All facets of the tour were catered for, the camping equipment supplied was of an excellent standard and the tents were even erected for... More

The company was brilliant, and the safari was a great success. All their profits have gone into building a community project in Arusha; building classrooms and a library for rich and poor children to attend. This company is not commercial and great value for money, the 7 of us really enjoyed it!!!!
