Angelica was a pleasure to work with from the beginning. She was attentive to our needs, highly flexible and easy to communicate with. The trip was very well planned especially given our time constraints. The 7 day lemosho hike was a success, reaching Uhuru Peak.

This year I decided to celebrate my birthday by taking a challenge and that was to climb Mt Kilimanjaro. The idea came 6 months back & accordingly I prepared myself. I made my plan in such a way so that I reached the summit on 21st June 2017 (my birthday).
