Gordon Flynn (New Zealand) – Successful summit on 23 June 2018
I had an extended trip to Switzerland and have just got back to NZ.
I am happy to give feedback and have copied in my guides so they can see it as well.
I am very happy about how my trip went and the experience of booking with Climbing Kilimanjaro. I have no hesitation in recommending your company to anyone who is considering climbing Kilimanjaro or going on a safari.
The communication throughout from Manasseh was excellent and he was very good in organising my safari and accomodating the changes to accomodation that I requested.
The safari was great especially the Ngorongoro crater and my driver Jackson was very knowledgeable and I always felt safe with his driving.
My guides David and his assistant Athuman were excellent. I would not have made it to the summit and back safely without their patience and encouragement and the first aid treatment I received when I rolled my ankle during the trek.
My advise would be to ask by name for these two guides if I knew someone who was going on the climb. David always kept us informed of what was happening and also what to expect as we climbed higher.
We were asked what we liked to eat and the cook was very good at preparing tasty meals. There was always more than enough food for my appetite.
The waiter Yaseen was very polite and good at organising our mess tent and water bottles and the porters who looked after my tent and bag were great as well. Everyone was friendly and helpful.
The whole trip was perfect as far as I was concerned and while I am pleased to have made the summit, the meeting of the people in our climbing team will be the enduring memory that I take away from my visit to Tanzania..
