Three fantastic adventures, blended to produce one exhilarating trip. Safari !, Kilimanjaro climb !! and Zanzibar!!! - this simply cannot be beaten. The trip of a lifetime!
- What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
Seeing Kili from the plane as we arrived in Tanzania,
The wildebeest migration stretching as far as the eye could see - and that was very far!
Views of Kili from hotel in Arusha
Come to think of it, views of Kili from anywhere on the trip.
Reaching Gilmans point and seeing the sunrise reflecting of the summit glaciers - also the whole group getting to the summit.
The deserved r +r period at Fumba, absolute paradise, if Kili was my main draw then Fumba was my main reason for wanting to stay
- What did you think of your group leader?
Are there enough superlatives?
Sara was brilliant. Well organised, very experienced. She looked after us all and kept us motivated, She was our mother, sister and best friend all rolled into one. Simply the best!
- Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
This is one trip you must do before you die - it will be even harder after you are dead lol!
Seriously though, this is a perfect trip itinerary for climbing Kili and seeing some of Tanzanias best sights. The safari alone was worthy of the journey there. Add in the Kili climb and the fantastic Zanzibar stay and you will find that adventure holidays just don't come any better packaged.
Drink lots of water, use lots of sunscreen and walk slowly, -but you will be told that when you get there - and about every other hour while you are there.
Stone town is quite dark at nights and can be a little bit intimidating if you are new to that sort of thing, I had no problems on my own but you are probably best to stay in a group and carry a torch, although I never used mine. It can be good fun exploring the alleys.
- Is there anything else you would like to add?
Do this trip. This was my 13th Exodus trip and whilst they have all been great this tops the lot. My one and only lifetime goal was to climb Kili and after 2years of looking at various companies and even trying to do it independently, i decided to stick with Exodus and i am absolutely and totally glad that I did!
If you have even the remotest interest in climbing Kili then this trip must be seriously considered!
