Great Experience

Climb:
The guides were very good. I would definitely recommend them to another group. They were always available for questions and when we wanted to learn more Swahili they were ready to teach us. The guides were also on time for everything from the warm water and tea in the morning, meal time, hiking time, etc. Rocky and Remy were always friendly and aware of the group, its needs, and pace.
The transportation was always on time and ready to go. The food was good, given the circumstances that they had to carry it all. It would have been nice to have a little more variety, but they are familiar with what is easy to carry, able to be cooked at altitude, and high energy for the hike.

Safari:
The guide was very good. Rob knew his directions and animals. It would have been nice at times to be in the active/lead pack as compared to getting there after the other cars. The other thing would be to move closer as compared to letting the other cars get the inside spot for pictures. He was not pushy with telling us where we would go nor how much time we would spend at a location.
The hotels were nice and food was good. If there were a recommendation for other tourists, it would be to have an extra day, or half day in the hotel. This would allow you to relax and take advantage of the hotel amenities. Additionally, it would allow you to start the safari earlier. Each day seemed that it took a few hours to get to the location and the animal activity is different in the middle of the day when it is hot, compared to the morning when it is cooler. The lunch boxes were interesting but it appeared the same for all tour groups.
