The gear, single tent, and food were so beyond what I imagined. I realize that I was extremely fortunate to have climbed Kili with Thomson Safaris and that this is not the typical experience on the mountain.
I am also so thankful for the opportunity to have witnessed the work that everyone does on the mountain. I now can better understand the extent of the hard work that the mountain crew performs. I have nothing but high praises for the quality of work and care that was provided for me. Nashukuru sana (I am very grateful)!
