Here is what Jack from California had to say about our Kilimanjaro/Mt. Kenya/Safari:
"The leaders made considerable efforts to insure a great climb on Kenya and memorable trekking of the Circuit Route around the massif. Climbing guides especially were all amazing in knowledge of mountain craft, experience and patience.
I was able to make the summit in the company of clients and guides from all over the world; Canada, Germany, Holland, Kenya and the US. The backgrounds among all the people here are equally as varied and interesting."
Here is what Nicola from Australia, now living in London, had to say:
"It was an amazing time, one I do not wish to forget in a hurry. Words cannot describe my experience in Africa. I thought the other team members were great and everyone seemed to really enjoy the safari."
