Thanks for the follow up.  The entire trip was amazing and an absolute blast.  Attached is my favorite picture at the summit with myself and my guide (Godwin).  Honestly – I have nothing critical to say – the entire trip was planned to perfection – Nature Discovery is truly top notch and I can see why you all partner with them.  Well worth the premium paid as opposed to going through other guide services.  Thanks again for everything

Wow, what a great experience! The final walk up the summit ridge was a just an amazing feeling and luckily, weather conditions on the top cleared up after starting from School Hut in lightly falling snow.

Everything ran like a well-oiled machine. We just couldn’t fault it! We really liked the team approach across porters and guiding staff.  I know that these things don’t just happen and you should be proud of your staff and their efforts. Would I recommend a Nature Discovery Kili trek to friends and family – absolutely! That to me is always the test after completing something like this.

Your advice as to the Shira Plateau route was spot on. Excellent to get the necessary acclimatization time in and nobody suffered from altitude sickness. Having experience that at Everest Base Camp, I was very pleased (and relieved) to come through unscathed this time.

Some specific comments:

Hire gear was great.

Food was exceptional, both as to variety, quality and quantity. Our chef, Felisiana August was superb and turned out meals of a consistently high standard. Both the menu design was excellent and we were continually surprised as our waiter Good Luck announced each evening what we were having.

Guide team: Onest Mtui is the sort of person you just trust and respect. Quietly spoken, very knowledgeable, and as we headed up the mountain on summit day with the ground covered in snow, you just knew that he was right on top of his game. Excellent man and we all really enjoyed his company.

Assistant guide William Bwenje is someone that you need to keep in mind when you are looking to promote new head guides. Both Michael and I were impressed with his depth and maturity. He anticipated problems, worked with people who needed assistance, demonstrated really good leadership qualities and has a very good grasp of English. The overall caliber of your people on our trek was just superb.

So in summary, I must compliment you and all the team on a job well done.

My two sons and I just got back from a successful summit climb on Kilimanjaro. We had a fabulous time, with the full support and friendship of our Nature Discovery crew. We were confident we had the highest quality group on the mountain. They were professional, knowledgeable, and experienced. We couldn’t have asked for a better trip!
