Final result...I could NOT pull the trigger on spending 180,000 miles for two business class tickets on a flight that I can get for about $1,400 USD in economy class. This puts me in a bad situation for Tanzania, but in an excellent situation for going to Botswana in July/August, possibly flying in Business Class all the way from Los Angeles to Johannesburg if I can find a seat, this for 120,000 miles per person.

Given flight times, I may need to spend one night in Amsterdam at the beginning and one night at the end. I don't like my chances of survival in the Kiliminjaro Half Marathon if I have to spend a night in Amsterdam just a couple days before the half marathon. I may still be slightly confused from my time in Amsterdam!

Hopefully I made the right decision. Just seemed wasteful to spend so many miles and then not even get a direct flight to Amsterdam.
