Amazing experience. We just had the best time.

The whole trip was amazing and went off without a hitch.

I’m not sure what sets the different companies apart but our experience was top notch. The gear was new and top-quality. The food was fresh, natural and delicious (even my two teenagers ate and enjoyed it.)

The best part was the staff. Tent in the US is great, the ground crew in Arusha was very nice and good too. But the best was the group on the mountain. Never have I seen such a hard-working bunch of guys. They did their porter thing, carrying stuff, but they also helped us get dressed, wash our hands and just look for something to help with.

Our lead guides, Mood and Bon each spoke at least three languages perfectly. They know the Latin names of the flora and fauna. We talked about raising children and politics. They’re just wonderful men.

At one point, my 18 year-old daughter was having a rough time on summit day. She collapsed, crying and cold. Bon went to her, told her he loved her and believed in her. he took her pack and helped her get moving and eventually summit the mountain.

So, there’s a chance the food may be fancier with another outfitter. Or the porters might have matching T-shirt’s or something. But if I go again, I’m going with Mgalaa Expeditions and asking for Bon and Mood there’s no question about it.

(The safari was amazing too. Lawrence was our driver and was pretty mind-blowing. He speaks at least 5 languages, was giving other drivers directions in the Serengeti, and can repair Land Cruisers in the field. A capable man is an understatement.

Awesome trip and we would definitely use Mgalaa Expeditions again.
