Marc Jarry (Canada) – Successful summit on 8 August 2017
The trip was a success on all levels.
I will start with our guide Musa. He was great. We felt in very good hands with him. On the trail, almost everybody, from others guides, to porters, would call him up! Musa here, Musa there. Everybody on the trail was happy to see him. He is very respected on the mountain which gave us confidence in him also.
Lawrence, the assistant guide: He was also great. A ray on sunshine all the time. Him and the cook were always smiling. Their good humor was contagious!
The cook, (I am sorry, I don’t remember his name), was also terrific. The food was very good. I never ate as much! And to think that we were on the kili!
The porters: Also terrific! When we arrived, the tents were always up and waiting for us! Even the last night, we were really fast between Barafu and Mweca (we did it in 2h15min vs the usual 4h) and even so, the tent was ready! Hats off to these great climbers.
As for the reservation process and info before the hike, Nikki you were also of great help We had all the info and we prepared ourselves accordingly.
As for the safari: Jordan, our guide was really great and the accommodations in Lake Manyara were super. The staff there was also very very kind
Mount Meru Hotel was super!
I have thus nothing bad to say about this trip. Our next one will have very high expectations to meet!
Thank again for this perfect trek
