I just wanted to tell you that the whole trip was the best experience of my life. I truly had the most amazing time and everything was flawless from start to finish. Seraphine was an incredible guide and took such great care of us, as well as "L", Teacher, Douglas,and Joaquin, to name a few. Every single staff person was highly attentive to us, super nice, and helpful. The trek was such a magical experience and I really don't think it would have been so wonderful if we hadn't chose Climb Kili. There were several guides from other companies taking their clients back down the mountain but they were also ones that rushed and passed us on the trail. I thought it spoke volumes of the guides direction that all 7 in our group reached the summit. Also, we couldn't have had a better group to hike with. Nick and I just loved spending time with everyone and not even once opened a book, ipad, or kindle. John, our safari guide, was such a knowledgeable and kind person too. We had the best time with him and saw so much. We loved that we saved the safari for last because it was a more relaxing experience. My favorite part of the safari was the tented lodge! That was the coolest thing I had ever seen and was much nicer and comfortable than the resort in Arusha! The food and accomodations were excellent and the staff were just amazing. Anderson was such a great host and made sure we knew that whatever we needed we could have. We enjoyed sitting around the campfire and asking John to be our translator to the Masai warrior that was there. I will never forget the experience, people, and emotions I had while I was in Tanzania. It was just remarkable and I want to thank you for organizing such a flawless trip for us. I can't say enough good things about Climb Kili! I attached a summit photo of Nick and I and a photo of us back at the gate. I had on 6 layers up top and 5 on bottom! I was nice and toasty :) Thank you again for EVERYTHING!!! It was perfect! Sammie
