É com a Tropical Trails que vamos tentar a ascensão do Kilimanjaro. Não foi uma escolha fácil, já que há inúmeras a fazerem isto e, porque das opiniões que rececolhi (livros, foruns, net,...) são contraditórias. Optamos por esta, já que em todo o processo de pedido de dados foram os melhores, têm boas opiniões dos ex-clientes e são uma empresa com algum prestígio, ou seja, não é a mais barata, mas obedecem já a regras e dão-nos o mínimo de garantias. O site também está giro e vale a pena uma vista de olhos. É este o programa das festas de base:
