Monica, John and The Appelbes were among 20 members enjoying the trip around Mount Kenya, Ngorongoro Crater, Rwanda and Ethiopia using MK Snow Tours and Travel. The grand tour took 37 days and was indeed fun!
The hike up Mount Kenya took 7 days with all the members having a 100% success in getting to the third largest peak of the mountain. (This is usually the goal for everyone hiking Mount Kenya!)
Ngorongoro Crater took 6 great days and was fun with most of us learning the ever amazing Masai culture and getting to spend time with them.
Rwanda had 5 fantastic days in the pack for us. Exciting wildlife, amazing landscapes and a treat of the thrilling Gorillas!
We took our time in Ethiopia where we spent 18 splendid days viewing the awesome landscapes with one of the most amazing cultures and religion!

Comments on the tour:
John and I were also part of the group from Australia who visited Tanzania and trekked up Mount Kenya with MK Snow Tours. What an amazing trip we had! Plenty of wildlife, stunning scenery and a taste of other cultures.
Our drivers/guides were very knowledgeable about the animals and drove safely at all times. We saw so much thanks to their ability to spot animals quickly, often at a great distance!
The Mount Kenya trek was well organised. We walked through some beautiful alpine scenery. Mark and his team were always helpful and friendly. The meals were very good too (I loved the donuts!).
Mark is capable, trustworthy and communicates well. We are more than happy to recommend MK Snow Tours. Thanks Mark for a wonderful journey.
