As a triathlete and surgeon, I’ve faced some demanding challenges (marathons, half Ironman Triathlon, on call in the hospital with no sleep for days, etc.) and I’d say this was the most physically and mentally challenging thing I’ve accomplished …. and by design, with our children.  High demand, high rewards. Thomson has been first class every step and detail of the way.  We will all carry this experience with us through life’s challenges and be better prepared to handle anything. We chose Thomson because of a friend’s strong recommendation, Thomson’s stellar reputation and their philosophy toward their porters, Tanzanians and Mt. Kilimanjaro.
