Oh, I am sorry, I haven't seen you question until now. I hope my answer is not going to be too late. You don't need a company but it is wise to go with a local guide. People from the Maasai Giraffe Ecolodge, where we stayed, went with local Maasai working at the lodge

Honestly, I can't imagine how we would have found the trailhead without a guide. Once on the trail, it's obvious and you will not get lost.

Hello,

The cost to climb Ol Doninyo is 100 USD and the community there at the village will give you a guide to come with you. It takes more than 5 hours to reach the summit and the ascend starts around midnight.

It is not easy to go to the village by your own because the distance from Arusha is around 400 Km and I think there are no buses going there.So, it is better to make a deal with a company.

No it's not a must but a good company will hopefully be more organized and bring more experience to the trek. We had a older guide who was great but the rest of the team were young and just there for the money
