We've just returned from our legendary holiday in Tanzania. We only had one goals. To reach the top of the Kilimanjaro.
We are 5 friends with no experience in the mountain climbing field whatsoever. We got the advice from two other parties to contact 'African Spoonbill', in Moshi, to arrange our climb. That was a perfect tip. After some research we found out that African Spoonbill asked a very good price for there tours. And after this holiday we can say they offer great service for a that price.
After landing in Nairobi we were picked up from the airport, and brought to the bus station for our long journey to Moshi. Here we were picked up by Pius, manager from the organization. During the trip, Pius was there every time we started a tour, and when we came back. It was clear he valued a problem-free holiday for us. At the start of our climbing, and later our safari, we talked everything through with Pius and the guide.
The Kilimanjaro climbing was a great adventure. The beautiful surroundings, mixed with the physical challenge, made this into an unforgettable week. During the week we found there was a big physical difference in our group, so we worried about reaching the top all together at the same time. But our guides were convinced that wouldn't be a problem. And they were right. After a short briefing we started our summit to the top at 00:00. During the week the guides had seen our walking-skills and suggested we would take a very slow pace with a 5 minute break every our. This was perfect, and thanks to the guides and there expertise, we all made it to the top, at the same time, during the sunrise.
In a nutshell. We had a great holiday, with a even greater achievement. African Spoonbill did a perfect job organizing our holiday. They provided professional, but even more important for us, relaxed tour-guides. They all helped us to have reach our goal and make some great memories.
And off course a special thanks to the porters and cooks! The service and meals provided were amazing. Especially with minimum resource.
