All in the hotel safe & sound

After a few false starts, the group was re-united this evening at dinner.

The briefing we had confirmed that we are in the most capable of hands. In addition to the Ultimate travel trek leader who has years of experience, we are also accompanied by a veteran of over 75 Kili ascents, a GP who has first hand experience of Kili & a team of local support staff and porters that make their entire living from assisting Kili ascents.

So if you are a family member of one of the group who has concerns of safety etc...... don't! We couldn't have a better team of people taking us up to the summit!

The hotel (hotel Impala) is of a quality that none of us expected.... Shame we're only here tonight & Friday night!

Lots of tired heads tonight after such a full travel itinerary over the last 2 days, so it's an early night, early start tomorrow.....& then the work begins!

To a successful summit.

  22. What’s up G!
    Thought I’d let you know we keeping a close eye on your progress. By we I mean Gracie and I, she’s decided she won’t go to bed until she’s heard everything about uncle Gareth’s day! Looking forward to reading about your first day’s trekking. Sat here with a double choc magnum in one hand and a bottle of formula in the other, two guesses which is mine! Best of luck mate, don’t forget my stick of rock. Mr Dumper.
