Everyday a highlight, a challenge achieved reaching each camp, peak in altitude until the top of the highest free-standing mountain in the world at 5895m. A highlight was the transition between all the different types of vegetation, microclimates and landscapes, going from the lowlands of subtropical Moshi, to the rainforest, then moorland and heather where trees start to disappear for less vegetation and fewer plants. After the semi-desert, comes the arid landscape of the summit, with intense sunlight, cold some snow and ice. With ten hours walk through the night from the last camp on summit day, the most memorable moment was approaching Uhuru peak, walking still very slowly, tired, and seeing the green post from far. Flashing back memories of all the efforts, realising that we all made it to the very top of Africa and it was all so worth it. Another memorable moment was the singing and dancing of the crew, the whole group and others joining in and the tour leader sharing the upbeat spirit of their culture.Lovely Whitey, always positive, happy, encouraging and so passionate about Kili. He has reached the summit more than 150 times, so much experience and stories to share.

This trip was brilliant for me - the challenge, the rest of the group were great, the team of porters, camp manager, cook, waiter - all of them were amazing, the singing and dancing and friendliness of everyone. The food was excellent considering the conditions for preparation and that everything had to be carried miles up the mountain. One highlight was the birthday cake the cook produced for one of our group. Another reaching the summit at sun rise - just magical and lastly our main guide Whitey who was absolutely wonderful, took care of us all, was fun and very professional - we felt completely safe in his hands.
The trip was quite physically challenging and the only thing I would say is that it shouldn't be undertaken lightly, you need strong legs, stamina and determination and be happy to put up with roughing it. In my case I was perfectly ok with this and the achievement was well worth the effort but I'm not sure it would suit some.

Getting to the summit was incredible!! Along the way I met some great group members and the main tour guide Julius (Whitey) was an absolutely outstanding leader and the other tour guides and porters were also very good at what they do and good fun to be around.Julius is an absolutely oustanding leader. Right from the start at airport pick up he exuded professionalism and confidence in his abilities to get clients up and down the mountain safely. He was always on the look out on the trip for any signs of any member in difficulty and acted on several occassions to help. He was an all round good leader with motivational speeches, organisation of the walks, a great singer and dancer and getting everyone involved. I felt like I was in good hands form airport pick up, right through to airport drop off.

Overall it was a good trip. I wanted to climb to the top of Kilimanjaro and that was achieved. The 2 things i did not like was that on day 1 we were asked about the amount of tips to pay and that the guide did not get us to the top at sunrise. I felt pressured into drawing out money for the tips. I strongly believe that this should be taken out of the fee i paid Explore, which would leave me to enjoy the holiday without worrying about money. I have no problem in giving tips on the last day for a good service.He was brilliant until the last climb up Kilimanjaro. He wanted to set off early to avoid other groups at the top and assured us that we would still be at the top for sunrise. We arrived an hour early and did not get to see anything from the top. Paying a great amount for this trip came down to 1 mistake by the guide. He did not even explain what went wrong. Very disappointed.

Do as much research, training etc. as possible and know what to expect while on the trip. Be sure to have all the proper kit. Be prepared for how tough summit night is; it is absolutely the most physically and mentally challenging thing I have ever done but the rewards are well worth it.

our guide, Chunga, was the best. Absolutely professional and struck the right balance between motivating us and looking out for our best interests. The other guides and porters were also excellent and took very good care of us.

Highlights: obviously the summit, but also the great views along the way
Tips: It is worth while planning all the equipment thoroughly, not just for summit night, but also for camping in minus temperatures for several nights

Whitey and his crew were incredible, myself and husband would not have made it up without them. We still remember all the songs too. Epic adventure!
