, offering a wide range of adventure holidays for trekkers, walkers, naturalists, wildlife enthusiasts, overland travellers and birders wishing to take advantage of a fully arranged program but not always wanting to be part of a large group. We try hard to stay away from mass tourism destinations and visit the more remote destinations that we ourselves love so much.
I booked a trip with Footprints in the UK to climb Mount Kilimanjaro (30th July-5th August 2013) and we were placed with Zara Tours in Africa.
I am writing to let you know what a fantastic experience myself and the rest of the group had climbing Mount Kilimanjaro.
I truly believe this experience was all down to the fantastic team we were allocated. From the moment we met our guide Godlisten, we were made to feel at ease and completely comfortable.
The climb itself was particularly difficult for a few of us in the group due to altitude sickness, and not once did this become an issue, the faith the whole team had in all of us, and the strength they gave us had a huge impact and resulted in us reaching our goals.
Godlisten went above and beyond his role as guide, he kind nature and passion was clearly evident and nothing was ever too much trouble. He was humorous when needed, caring when needed and more importantly someone we all trusted completely.
Rogita and Yessay went above and beyond, caring and encouraging two climbers who found the Summit day very difficult due to sickness, there patience and support was indescribable, two of the most caring hardworking people I have ever been fortunate to meet. For their support I will be eternally grateful.
