    Written on March 26, 2018
    5.0 - Excellent

    Just returned home from Tanzania. Choosing Altezza Travel for organising my climb was a great decision. Everything was perfect! Managers were reachable literally 24/7, the equipment I rent from Altezza shop was clean and in a good condition, the hotel before and after the climb was located in a really nice area where monkeys are literally jumping from tree to tree right next to you while you are having lunch. The route I climb via was Marangu. I decided to do it on my own just because I felt like I needed some piece and quiet from my daily life and working routine. When I was told that the supporting group consists of 9 people I wasn’t really happy about it and didn’t understand why on earth we needed that amount of people. But when I started my climb I realised how wrong I was. First of all, it was basically just me and a guide. I almost did not see porters while trekking from one camp to another. They were going far ahead from me, and once I reached the camp, everything was already set up like tents, dinning tables, food… Oh God, the food was amazing! They even cooked pizza once. Honestly, I was really surprised by the variety of food they offered up in the mountains. Sometimes it was pretty cold in the evenings, but a sleeping bag I rented was warm, plus I was given a heating pad, which really helped me to survive the nights! The most difficult part was the summiting night. I didn’t sleep well and on my half way to the top I was so cold and tired that I asked my guide if we could return back to the camp. But big thanks to him and his motivational and cheerful speeches, which made me continue my climb and reach the highest point of Africa. It is important to highlight the fact, that your health is being checked twice per day. The guide even had some special medical card where he wrote down all information about my physical condition etc. And do not bother yourself taking such tablets as Diamox and Aquaguard, because Altezza has everything in their aid medical kit. The guide deserves a special mention. What an amazing and interesting man! My plan of being all alone for 7 days vanished into thin air as soon as I started a conversation with my guide. I will never forget these long walks we spent together, sharing lots of life stories. I learned so much about what it is like to be a Tanzanian citizens and to climb Kilimanjaro few times per month. Tanzanian people are something unique. They are so kind and apprehensive. My guide could actually feel when I wasn’t in the mood for communicating (even my wife still cannot do that) and just followed me in a complete silence when it was needed. My biggest regret was not combining my climb with a safari tour, because at the end of my trip I didn’t want to leave Tanzania at all. There are so many interesting places to see and things to learn about the culture, that one week is extremely little time to do that. So if you are planning to spend your next vacation in Tanzania, make sure you take at least 2 weeks off and book both Kilimanjaro climb and safari. I can assure that with Altezza Team organising your holiday you will get the most of your trip to Africa!
