Heading to the summit
Karanga Camp on Mount Kilimanjaro
We had a wonderful time in Tanzania from start to finish. The trek was awesome and so was the safari. Hard to say what we enjoyed most! Our family really loved both parts of the trip even though they were so different.
Your guides there are fantastic – they really made the trip for us. Our 3 guides, waiters, and porters always had smiles for us and nothing but positive, encouraging words each day – I truly cannot say enough good things about those men.
Our safari guides were great too. We managed to see all of the “Big Five”; we spent nearly an hour watching the elusive leopard as she made her way through the grass and trees looking for a meal – the kids thought it was great.
The food on the mountain and on safari was fabulous. In fact my kids asked why my food at home didn’t taste that good! I think we ate them out of house and home on safari; teenagers can eat a lot.
This hike was an exceptional experience for our family. We learned a lot about ourselves, each other and Tanzania. I am not sure we are ready to head back up the mountain yet, but I am quite certain another trip to Tanzania will be in our future – there are lots of places left to see and experience!
