Kaiyuwang's review for another G Adventures tour
“Climbing Kilimanjaro was definite challenging especially the day u to the summit! But its worthy. When you saw the sunrise and iceberg just in front of you, which was amazing! The G adventure team is great; arranging everything pretty well and taking care of all the members. For the safari part, its for sure something must to do in Africa! Our driver is profesuonal not only tried to find the animals for us but also did the detailed explanation of the knowledge of animals ! The food was good... if I have to say something I dont like probably which was we almost camping through all the trip...but its the way it is I guess!”
