"I just returned from an excellent 3-week trip organized by African Ascents. I climbed Mt. Meru and Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania with Julius as our guide, and Mt. Kenya (Lenana, Pt. John, Nelion and Batian), Mt. Satima and Mt. Longonot in Kenya. African Ascents provides highly qualified staff, great food and a very well organized trip. Thank you for everything you did to make this trip possible. David Hart Anchorage, Alaska"
