I selected Follow Alice for my Tanzania adventure based on the stellar reviews they've received - I am thrilled to add one more stellar review to their profile. I could not have asked for a better two weeks in Tanzania. The four-day safari was perfect - Kazi, our guide and driver, is a master at his craft. He was able to spot a huge variety of animals for us, including the Big Five. He's so skilled that he would often provide guidance to the other guides. He kept his ears open and secured some incredible photography opportunities, including a leopard on a tree and a pride of lions on a boulder. He answered every question and indulged every request. I feel as though we parted as friends. The trek up Kilimanjaro was life-changing - the guides, Jerry, Alex, and Robert, were like father figures, protecting us, teaching us, and leading us. I trusted them all, and the whole team, totally. We hiked with Jerry the most, and he truly was the gravitational center that kept the whole operation intact. I can tell he is a kind and gentle soul. Alex brought good laughs, and became a friend during the trek. The whole team provided a great community during the hard days - it rained every day we were on the mountain, but the friendliness, positivity, good humor, and empathy to my group's emotional journey made the climb a success. Special shout-out to Rama, the waiter, and all morning wake-ups with tea and coffee, and the delicious soups and snacks from Rajab, the cook, he would serve in the dining tent. On a more serious note, the team had to deal with a very serious medical situation while on the climb, something I have read doing research is an extremely rare event; nonetheless, any climb of this magnitude carries risks, and Robert and his Follow Alice team, I can confidently say, saved a man's life. The hardships, the obstacles, the emotional ups and downs - it made the sunrise at the summit with this wonderful group of people all the more magical.
