My initial thought was that the cost of this trip was significantly higher than competing companies and I wondered what the “value” was in a premium trip. I now know the value is about on-going safety of clients on the mountain, a high degree of luxury on the safari (especially needed after the mountain experience) and the fact that logistically, I had every assurance all details were looked after.
