Without a doubt, Thomson Safaris’ Grand Traverse expedition on Mt. Kilimanjaro was the most incredible experience of my life!!

Any chance hiking that mountain can be my life’s work?!  The guides and staff were incredible and went the extra mile every chance they could. I love those guys. All of them are special.  A special thank you to Abdul who was ever so kind to be there all the time to blow up my air mattress and help put things together in the morning. He wrote, with the most beautiful hand writing, the words of the songs in my journal. And a special thank you to Rama again who was my personal porter and helped guide me all the way down the steep descent.

Your U.S. staff believed I could do it despite medical issues. They were supportive in the decision making process.  Thanks Amy and Rachel – you made my dream come true.
