    Hello, our names are Sylvia and Rolf from Bonn, Germany. We did a private trekking Tour and wildlife safari with Standout Adventures in May 2010 in Kenya. Standout Adventures made an excellent job, it was an absolutely enjoyable trip! We began our tour with a few days for acclimatisation in Aberdare National Park. Then we started to climb Mount Kenya up Sirimon with an extra night at Liki North Hut at 3993 m and down Chogoria. We have experience in trekking in higher altitudes, for example in Mongolia and in Nepal. With this background, we really can say: Everything was very well arranged, we always felt absolutely safe.

    Our kind and well-informed mountain guide John made us feel to be in holiday as a couple. He and his team were friendly and cautious but always around. Follow their recommendation (pole, pole!) and you will stay healthy and happy.

    Joseph, the excellent cook is a wizard in the kitchen. He is responsible to be this trekking tour our first without loosing weight. We cannot remember any meal without different courses and dishes.

    We could write so much more about our fantastic first time in Africa, but we don’t want to risk trouble with the administrator.
    Do not miss:
    - Aberdare National Park, with the chance to see mountain elephants
    - Try to reach the summit of Mt Kenya early in the morning to see the sunrise
    - Choose sometimes a tent instead of a hotel to hear the sound of wildlife at night
