A huge Thank You to
you and Sifael and all the KiliBase team for making our trip such
a wonderful one. We were taken care of every step of the way, with
the quality food (we're still in awe at how Robert performs his
magic on the mountain!) the knowledgeable and friendly guides (we
felt honored to have Sifael lead us, and Gabriel was great, too)
and the little touches like the hot water bottle "babies"
at night. The hotels either end of our stay were excellent as well,
in fact I have to say that the whole operation was outstanding.
I also appreciate that you kept Keith informed along the way; your
emails came at exactly the right time to reassure him that we were
OK. We have some great photos and some unforgettable memories, and
we are very grateful to you and Sifael for making this dream of
climbing Kili come true.
I hope to take Keith over there in a few years for a safari (and
maybe I'll climb Meru!).
Until then, best wishes to you and thank you again,
I’ve been meaning to send a little note since I’ve
got back from my travels, but I was flat out with finishing my
thesis for the past 6 weeks. Now that is done and dusted, and
I’m back to dreaming up the next holiday!
I really just wanted to thank you for all of your assistance and
patience in getting our trip organised. We had an absolutely amazing
time and wouldn’t have done it any differently. Sifael and
Gabrielle were great guides; Robert amazed us with his food; and
Wilson always brought a smile to our face. A really great crew.
The basic option was perfect for us, and I honestly can’t
imagine how it would get any better than that! My only change
to suggest is that I think the accommodation offered for the basic
option was a bit too luxe. We would have preferred to go much
more budget, and could have cut a couple of hundred off the total
package. On our final night in Moshi we actually stayed at the
backpackers, and that was surprisingly nice and suited our needs
perfectly. All in all though, amazing!
There was a slight confusion with the start date – I arrived
late on Saturday night and Wallace was expecting us to leave the
next morning, whereas I thought I had planned a day rest. I’ve
seen where the confusion happened – we had discussed that
we would have a day in-between, but in the final itinerary it
wasn’t accounted for and I didn’t pick it up. I was
really grateful that Wallace was still able to accommodate us
and delay the start date. I was quite jetlag and not sure I would
have coped otherwise. I also found out that morning we were meant
to climb that my sister had had her baby, so I was thankful to
be in Moshi and have the opportunity to talk to family. Anyway,
sorry for any confusion and inconvenience caused there, but thanks
to everyone for working around us. I guess the benefit of it just
being the two of us climbing.
I won’t hesitate to recommend you guys to anyone else. Thank
you again. I’ve sent Wallace a few photos from the trip,
but here is a link to some others if you are interested. I’m
sure you’ve seen a fair few renditions of these photos though!
Thanks again for all of your help,
The guide on the Kili climb was awesome. Really, really professional
and very good with people. I would recommend him to everyone.
We all loved him and his company, Kilibase Adventures.’
