The hike up Kilimanjaro was an incredible experience, it was the perfect challenge I was looking for and some definite Type 2 fun. The entire team at MonkeyAdventures made every one of the 8 days we were on the mountain so enjoyable. I wasn’t initially a fan of having others carry my gear between camps, but honestly after 10km of trekking it was such a nice touch to come into camp and see everyone there ready to welcome you and congratulate you on crushing another day. The hot coffee and tea delivered right to the tent every morning was the best way to wake up and get warm once you get up to altitude. Our guides Ramadan and Jop were absolute legends. Between the two of them they knew the name for every flower and bird we saw on the trail, and they had a million stories about other summit trips to share that entertained us through the journey. Our porters were awesome, especially Will and Isaac who gave us some extra help on summit night to make sure everyone got to the top as a group, that really made the morning fantastic. Christian was a wizard in the cooking tent, he genuinely made us pizza at 3000m up. Incredible. Yunus was a fantastic host, always checking in on us during meals and making sure we had everything prepped before heading out in the morning. The whole team at Monkey was stellar, they really made the trip seamless. I wouldn’t have changed a thing, I couldn’t imagine my experience without them.
