Thank you so much for an adventure of a lifetime!
When my 17 year daughter said she wanted to climb Mount Kilimanjaro for her high school graduation gift I thought she was crazy. After countless hours of research we found ClimbKili and knew it was possible. We were the only 2 scheduled for our climb and I must admit I was very apprehensive and Tiffany assured me that we would be 100% safe and she was absolutely correct. She was extremely helpful and answered my numerous silly questions throughout the planning process. Everything went smoothly without a hitch from making the reservation, the airport pick up to the climb, and then on to the safari.
We chose the 7 day Machame route and the climb was extremely difficult and challenging for me as I have never hiked a day in my life. Thankfully, we made it to Uhuru Peak on June 4, 2014. Our guides, Meckson and Frank did a great job in assuring our safety and I’m not so sure I wouldn’t have made it without them. They and our 10 porters were phenomenally strong, extremely friendly, always smiling and shared stories about their lives and families.
After climbing Mount Kilimanjaro (I like saying that because let’s face it, how many people out there can actually say that?) we went on a 4 day safari with ClimbKili. It was simply amazing! Our driver/guide was Eliamini AKA Eli and he was very professional, knowledgeable, friendly, clean and he smelled great! 🙂 The Lodges along the way were unbelievable and the service was spectacular.
My daughter and I are extremely happy campers and we have nothing but positive wonderful magical memories from this whirlwind adventure.
Asante Sana, ClimbKili!
