Kilimanjaro and Zanzibar
By: Gary Love, Tennessee, USA
The trip was fantastic, and the porters and guides made the difference between success and failure. I cannot thank them enough. Onex, our guide, provided excellent leadership and his crew provided outstanding support to all of us.
This was the greatest adventure that I have ever attempted. No doubt that I would have never made it without the support of the KE staff and the local support personel. Onex went way out of his way to make sure that I could contact my family in the USA while I was away, and I thank him very much. This was a wondeful experience.
It was way more difficult mentally and physically than I would have ever dreamed of. I was in excellent shape but there is no way I could have prepared for the conditions that I experienced climbing the mountain.
