"We did the eight days lemosho and western breach route, with a night at crater camp. This side of the mountain was beautiful and less crowded that the usual routes. Lema Peter (co-owner of the company) was our mountain guide and was with us from picking us up at the airport, to taking us to the area, to taking us back to the airport. (never had 1 of his drivers take us). The climb and service were incredible from the guides to the porters and cooks, Everyday when we arrived in camp our tents were set up and our thermal rests were inflated."

"Our group of 6 from Tucson (and 1 from San Diego) reached the summit on February 6. Amazing experience with the best guides and porters in Tanzania. Serengeti Pride exceeded all of our expectations! Thank you, Lema, James, Sauly, and Erika for making our dream come true!"
