Kilimanjaro Rongai Route October 2015

Amazing trip. Well organised, porters and guides fantastic. Great group of people. Food was good and plentiful. Altitude sickness/ exhaustion very hard on final summit. Views spectacular at the top, totally worth it. Descent on summit day very hard! An unforgettable once in a lifetime experience!

Rongai route to Uhuru - Aug 2015

This trip was execellent and we couldn't have been taken care of any better by the team, almost felt a little criminal how pampered we where. The guides (Henry, James, Sarafin and ) had great knowledge and kept a very watchful eye on the whole party to monitor how everyone was coping, they adapted walks and talks to ensure everyone's needs where met. At all times they where positive and encouraging whilst also pushing us along to ensure we achieved the summit. Personally I've never been so well fed on a trip like this, it was 3 course breakfast, lunch and dinner with a Menu that Milton our Cook was only to happy to change at our request. The porters are amazing, carrying heavy loads and flying off ahead of us from the start, shouting Jambo as they pass. The camp was always ready for us when we arrived which for a few was a god send as they flopped into their beds after a trek. Our whole group made it onto the top of Kilimanjaro which is a great credit to the support provided by the team.

Well for detailed summery of my trip you better check the reviews of my two fellow travellers (Garry Ward and Julia Porter). I have been intending to write this review since my return in August 2014 but as you see although it stayed on my mind i haven't managed to get it down till today (25.02.2015)!

I know there's almost an obligation to describe this type of bucket-list expedition as life-changing, but I can genuinely say that it is one of the most incredible, emotional and uplifting things I've ever done. Our group have so many great memories: the singing porters, the great scenery, the emotion of reaching the summit, tea and popcorn in the mess tent every evening, the monkeys in the rainforest, even the rain on the second day

The important thing to bear in mind with this trek is that, with the exception of the summit day, the walking is pretty dull. I've trekked extensively in Nepal, Europe and the UK and the scenery on Kili is less interesting and less varied than pretty much anywhere else I've been. If you took away the summit, no one would be that interested in walking there. Yes, the scenery does change from day to day - you start off in forest, then that becomes scrubland as you get higher - but there isn't the interest of variety which is present in other places. Therefore, I look at this trek as a challenge, rather than something to do for the sake of enjoyment. The summit day is very, very, very tough - six hours of steep climbing on gravel/scree, with an ascent of around 1200m, not much in the way of oxygen and in the dark, with the temperature comfortably below freezing. It's not so much about personal fitness as how well you cope with the altitude and how mentally tough you are. If you follow the advice from the guides, it'll certainly help though. The contribution of the guides to the success of our group cannot be underestimated - they were fantastic, particularly on the summit day.

Tough but rewarding!

The trip was great, the guides really looked after me especially on the descent down from Uhuru Peak when I suffered from a lack of energy and exhaustion. I felt in safe hands the entire trip and this gave me more confidence to just concentrate on walking. The tents and camps were all set up expertly everyday and food was nutritious. Only negative comment I have is that we could have prompted more often for sipping water so were sufficiently hydrated. Its hard to think at high altitude!
