I have to say I was really pleased to have chosen Thomson Safaris for my Kilimanjaro trek. All three of us were successful in reaching the summit, and the complete arrangements were near perfect.
Andrew, our Head Guide, was very good at assessing our small group’s individual capabilities. He is a good leader and is very safety conscious, while being patient, diplomatic, and helpful. Deogratius was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the mountain’s ecology. The porters worked as a team and were very friendly.
I was happy I had selected Thomson Safaris for the trip I had dreamed about for more than 20 years and know your Tanzania staff was a big part of my success in reaching the summit.
