Solo climbing is a magical experience
Thank you for making my stay at Honey Badger so great. You really welcomed me into your home and looked after us all. You have a lovely friendly family.
The Kili climb was obviously a highlight of my trip and I had such an amazing experience. I was a little apprehensive beforehand as I just didn't know what to expect, but Joey put me at ease and Deo was great at pacing the climb and reassuring me. I wouldn't do it again (!) but I did love every minute of it and feel super proud of reaching the summit (not so chuffed that they put your age on the certificate though!). It was surprisingly enjoyable to go on my own as it meant I got to see how peaceful the mountain is, had large stretches of the path to myself and could walk at my own pace, plus you meet up with lots of people at the camps anyway. I've attached a couple of photos which you can use if you want.
The lodge has a great atmosphere, very friendly and the improvements you're adding mean it will just get better and better. I really admire what you're doing with the local community and would like to help in some way with this if I can.
