Thomas Gross (Australian) – Successful summit on 06 October 2018 Superior package – 7 Day Machame route

Dear Karel,

Thank you for giving me the best experience of my life. I would not have reached the summit without the professionalism and awesomeness

of the crew that came up with us. Peter and Salim were top notch guides who were not only extremely passionate sharing their knowledge and

culture of the mountain and Tanzania respectively but were also super cool and genuinely wanted to know about you and where you come from.

You guys really put us first and your support, especially on summit night, meant a great deal.

I don’t understand how mountain food tastes good, but Ziggy’s cookery was simply sensational. I was never hungry, and always had double portions

for every meal (triple portions on summit night!). Thanks also to Alex for being a champion with table service.

All in all, everyone from the guides, cooks and porters bent over backwards to ensure I succeeded and I cannot fully express the extent of my gratitude.

I will never forget Kilimanjaro and the team who got me to the top of Africa.

Asateni sana and Tutaonana tenna!

Regards Tom
