Vayama Discount Coupon Code

Vayama is one of our favourite online flight search engines for international travel, because they search a wider selection of international airlines and flights than the other guys. Vayama books flights on regional and domestic African airlines like Air Tanzania and Precision Air, which you can't find on Expedia, Travelocity, Orbitz, etc.

Now it's even better because you can get $15 off your flight at Vayama when you click through the link below and use coupon code CJFLIGHTS15.

We made the summit via the Lemosho route and the Western Breach

My husband and I, along with another couple, climbed Kili from Aug 18-25, 2008. We took the Lemosho/Shira route and spent 8 days/ 7 nights on the mountain. We also climbed via the Western Breach.

Our guide company was Destination Tanzania Safaris and our lead guide was Justin (we had 2 assistant guides, 1 cook and 24 porters).

Our entire experience (from planning to the "reward" safari after) is documented on our blog:

About us

We run KiliTrekker.Com as a hobby... we're not some travel company trying to sell you their services, or a guidebook publisher looking to market their brand. Our goal is just to make KiliTrekker.Com the number one resource on the web for climbing Kilimanjaro, and travelling in East Africa.
