August Crone (Denmark) - Successful summit attempt on 17 January 2015

Dear Annalé

I had a awesome climb to Kilimanjaro. The trip was completely without disappointments and I don’t have a single complaint. The climb had everything I hoped for: amazing landscapes, a top professional and very friendly crew, physical and metal challenges (especially summit night) and a indescribable feeling when standing at the top. It’s definitely something I’m gonna remember for the rest of my life.

I hope that you will send the praise I have to the team which helped me to the top. The chief guide John, the assistant guide Marseille and the porters provided a service of a standard I couldn’t even imagine when booking the trip. They were all very friendly, welcoming and would help you with anything, I was served better food by the chef than I got in a restaurant and at my hotel in Moshi, the guide and assistant guide had a huge knowledge about the mountain and the security and focus on your health was very professional. It wouldn’t have been such a good trip without their help. Please let them know.

I would like to thank you Annalé for the fast, flexible, and professional service you provided. I ordered my trip friday morning and landed in Kilimanjaro Airport at monday evening. The pickup at the airport was there and i was driven to the best hotel in town. No problems, very impressive.

I have attached some pictures which you can use however you like. I have more if you are interested. Feel free to post and write on Facebook what you like.

Kind Regards August

Hey Annale!

Ok so I had a great time climbing with your company and Mndeme and Salimu. Both were very experienced, skilled, and fun guys to be around.
Despite never being able to finish my meals for various reasons, I loved the meals and our ‘waiter’ porter Adam was great as well.
In fact the entire team was incredibly helpful and on the not so often occasion I’d encounter them it was always pleasant.

I made it to Uhuru Peak without any real hassles, sleeping was an issue at Barafu base camp haha, but that was easily overcome.

I would highly recommend these things as well as the quality and speed of response from you to organise this thing at such short notice.

Thank you!

Dan

Nikki, I am attaching a few photos for you.
Thank you so much for an incredible trip. Our team was so helpful, knowledgeable, and fun. We could not have done it without their support. This will be a vacation that we will talk about for the rest of our lives!

Thank you for helping us accomplish our goal!

Hi Nikki,

We really enjoyed our trip especially the climbing part though it was to much “4 stars hotels” for us. We are not really used to getting fresh food, seats and a tent to eat when we climb.

We reach the top more easily than we thought but the experience with lack of oxygen was amazing. The views all along the way were wonderful.

It was really amazing and we already have begun the advertise with our friends and family :)

Have a nice day and thank you again.

Hi Nikki,

Thank you so much

It was the greatest experience of my life, it was tough but what a great achievement, very proud of our team.
I have no negative feedback, the guides and the porters did a brilliant job on supporting us to the top

I would encourage anyone to attempt at least once in their lifetime through your team of course 😉

Good day Nikki, thank you so much for your fantastic service, you will be glad to know we all reached the summit

It was absolutely fantastic, probably one of the most amazing experiences of my life, the porters and our guide Musa was absolutely amazing. I think I will be speaking on behalf of the rest of the team when I say the support we received was that of the highest standard, once again thank you for an unforgettable experience. Attached the photograph of all of us.

Hi Nikki,

What an amazing time!! Our every need was seen to from the moment that we landed to the moment that we left. The hotel where we spent the first and final nights was clean, the food was great and the service was amazing.

However, I must reserve the largest part of my praise for David and our other guide (I am so frustrated as I always remember his name and have just hit a blank) and every single one of the people who assisted us to the top by either cooking for us, carrying water for us to wash in or transporting our bags up that mountain. Our successful summit was turned into a wondrous journey with the guides regaling us with stories of other summit attempts, the ever-changing vegetation and animals and continual words of encouragement. The food was magnificent….I had made all these pre-packed snack parcels for every day but barely ended up touching them as we were always being fed by a smiling chef. Our porters were unbelievable : dignified men carrying these huge loads and giving us support every step of the way.

This trip was something that I will never forget and has inspired me to do Everest Base Camp next.

Nikki, a big thank you to everyone and to you as well : everything went so smoothly and I know that it was due to your organization! Thank you also for keeping my husband updated every step of the way.

Regards,
Lisa Friedman (and Tammy Friedman)

Hi Nikki,

Overall, we had a fantastic trip! Everything went off without a hitch and according to plan.

Our safari guide was a real joy to be with each day, and worked so hard to make our trip a memorable one.

The hike up Kilimanjaro was also excellent. Our team of guides and porters made the trip one that we’ll never forget.

Thank-you so much for arranging such a memorable experience!

Dear Nikki,

Climbing Kilimanjaro has been an amazing and unforgettable adventure, but it has also been one of the hardest thing we have ever done. Having said that, we could not have asked for better guides/cook/porters/weather. The guys were awesome!

It was nice and interesting to test ourselves and we were pleasantly surprised to see ho much we can push ourselves – both physically and mentally. The pole pole strategy helped us a lot and it has become our life strategy ever since. Hakuna Matata and pole pole… and you can reach the top! It’s an experience that we would definitely suggest to our friends.

You will find here attached one of our photos on top of kilimanjaro.

Thanks!
Best regards,
Katerina and Simona
