1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

The whole trip was wonderful. I was passionate about wanting to climb Mount Kilimanjaro and got 2 friends to agree and with the added incentive of raising money for a charity that friends of ours had set-up following the death of their baby girl (8months old). To challenge ourselves to get to the top of mt kili and we did it....

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Just do it! It is an experience and if you like trekking it is absolutely fantastic. I would do it again.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?

I am passionate about ethical issues and environmental responsibility. I was determined to organise the trip that benefited the local people and ensure that the guides and porters used are treated fairly and have adequate clothing, etc.... All this was in evidence when we trekked with our porters and guides. Seeing some of the other people trekking and their guides and porters you realised that their company was not as ethical!

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Our overall trip was great. I would like to give it 5 stars but having done the trip without the kids and my husband I feel I cannot as I would have loved them to have experienced the trip as well....next time! Nevertheless, it was fantastic and excellent memories and would love to do it again - a different route maybe!

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Climbing Kili was the best past of the whole trip

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Buy a headtorch. It is probably the single most useful accessory you will use

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?

Yes. Tourism is a huge part of the local economy, without it there would be no jobs. Masaai wanderings have assisted with building a school for local children so broadening the availability of education from a young age

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Some of the best experiences I am ever likely to have.
