Hi Gerry

Our trip to the top of Kilimanjaro was sensational.  The food, attention to details, focus on safety and comforts exceeded our expectations.  And we cannot say enough good things about Hosea and his team.  He is a truly outstanding leader—it was a thrill to watch him in action, and to see the group working together like a well-oiled machine.  The cook, Louis, took such pains to handle my gluten restriction—I was touched and deeply appreciative of that.  And the entire group of guides, porters, and cooks were a constant source of support and encouragement. 

Dave and I feel like we went with appropriate expectations about the degree of comfort we were likely to encounter on the trip—and had those expectations exceeded time after time—from the morning coffee delivered hot to our tent to the hot water bottles at night to take the chill off our sleeping bags!   We also fully expected a high degree of challenge and cold, both of which we felt well prepared to withstand.  Dave and I felt wonderfully strong at the summit, and enjoyed every minute of the climb up.  As we expected, the climb down was actually harder—in part because we did so quickly—but we made it still smiling and happy. 

Kiliwarriors Expeditions is a fabulous franchise and deserves to enjoy a long life in this tough business. 

With deepest thanks for a spectacular life experience,
