Dear Hidden Valley,

I am writing about my experience with your company during the full moon week in june 16 till the 21st june 2016.

We well informed and briefed before the beginning of our climb during our stay and the communication ( emails, pdf and briefing) was excellent.

Our guides ( Guideon and his team, Roger, Maleku..) took extremely good care of us. Our guardian angels (porters) made sure we well taken care off. The attention to details, their warmth, their joy, encouragement and cannot even express enough gratitude for all that the did for us. The patience and dedication of this guys during the challenging times is unbelievable.

The company was very professional and i have to admit the communication was exceptional and highly recommend them.

To attempt the climb of Kilimanjaro, it takes a team effort and this guys just did a superb job..


cordially,

Jupiter

Dear Hidden Valley

Following and enormously successful trip with Hidden Valley to the summit of Kilimanjaro at the beginning of July, we felt it important to provide you with some very positive feedback on your team on the ground.

Notwithstanding some miscommunication with respect to the time of our arrival, Manasseh, the Ground Manager, looked after us incredibly well and personally provided our transfers and made sure we were fully prepared. We also appreciated his visit upon our return to congratulate us and how flexible and helpful he was with respect to our arrangements in Arusha.

On the mountain our guides were Carlson and Nicas and we could not have been happier with their service. Both were very knowledgeable not only about the climb itself but about the mountain and its flora and fauna. They clearly love their jobs and their environment. In addition, they were amazingly friendly, caring and attentive as well as professional. We appreciated the fact that they both climbed with us at all times, taking it in turns to lead the group, unlike other companies where one of the guides was often nowhere to be seen. Harriet was especially grateful for their unwavering patience allowing her to hike at a manageable pace without feeling any pressure to move faster. We all summitted in good order and their sound judgement and encouragement were crucial to our achievement.

We cannot forget the rest of the team organised by Carlson and Nicas. Remy, our chef, deserves a special mention and we still marvel at his ability to produce three incredibly fresh and tasty meals every day under those conditions. Often the food on these trips can be so mundane as to cut your appetite and leave you undernourished before the summit. Thankfully the food was so good that we had no such issues with our appetites! Finally, we thank all the porters for their hard work and for having the camp set up and ready for our arrival at every stage. Carlson and Nicas certainly know how to assemble a winning team.

Thank you Hidden Valley for a remarkable trip and we shall definitely recommend you to our friends and family!

Regards

Chris Jackson, Harriet Etheredge, Andrew Bryson

Dear Nikki and Manasseh,
I just wanted to follow up to thank you for your help in facilitating our climb of Mt. Kilimanjaro and safari. Our entire group had an amazing time from start to finish and were impressed with the organization and thoughtfulness of the preparations made. Harold and Rama were amazing guides, without whom we would have not made it to the top. Each member of our group had a trip of a lifetime, and I wanted to thank you and your staff for making our dreams come true. We look forward to sharing your details with other friends who may want to climb Kilmanjaro in the future.

Warmly,
Christian Karega
