Trip Report Kenya and Tanzania adventure

Our trip was amazing in Kenya and Tanzania,we had a long 5 weeks,the best experience was both Mt.Kenya and Kilimanjaro,though we hoped to see the migration we were not lucky as still they are yet to cross but by mid July they might be in action.
Though 2 of us did not make it to Uhuru peak due to the mt sickness,6 of us made it to the top.Ngorongoro crater was also amazing and worthy it as well as Lake Nakuru in Kenya,we were able to see all the big five.The accommodation was excellent in all safaris in Kenya as compared in Tanzania where our camping was much basic in Tanzania.
Food was good as we had cook who prepared fresh food every day for us,the only difference in safaris is that in Kenya we used van while in Tanzania they use jeep but we were lucky that we never got stuck in the parks though our van were 4x4.In Tanzania they are used to jeep unlike Kenya but this comes with more prices as compared in Kenya.
For camping in Kenya we paid 1120usd for 8 days while in Tanzania we paid 1920usd for 8 days.For mt.Kenya we used Sirimon Down Chogoria for 5 days and we paid 750usd as compared with kilimanjaro where we paid 1540usd for the 7 days machame route.The only challange we had was in Kilimanjaro when it comes to Tip,if you are not well prepared and advised how to go about this you may end up in big problem.Our trip was organized and coordinated by Sammy and Rozie on behalf of Adventure Africa Expedition,http://www.advenafrica.com,their services are very good and they are always on time which made it easy for us.With the help of Vanderstar we really enjoyed our trip.
