Petros Diamantides | Athens | Mount Toubkal Morocco
Kyp and I are truly pleased with our trip to Morocco. On one hand, climbing Toubkal was the main highlight and conditions were challenging enough to generate a sense of achievement and allow those Rhino genes to manifest themselves! On the other hand, organisation was excellent and accommodation was above our expectation (especially the hot shower!). The two days in Marrakech and the coast were fantastic and rounded off the trip well.
We both thank you for the experience you have given us and warmly appreciate your friendship. We are looking forward to our next ADI event!
Mandy Ramsden | Johannesburg | Carstensz Pyramid
Thanks again for an unbelievably awesome trip to Carstensz Pyramid. Predictably, the depression associated with a return to my office desk has set in, but I have learnt that the only way to deal with my addiction to this sport is to start planning the next one.
Melissa Westgate | Johannesburg | Kilimanjaro and Safari
We had a fantastic trip, thank you so much for everything!! The guides for both the Kili trip and the Safari were amazing. The accommodation was also fantastic – the hotels outside of Moshi and all the Wildlife lodges were awesome!!! Thank you again for everything.
David Seabrook | Houston Texas | Mera Peak Himalaya
Thanks again for a great climb of Mera! Yes, we’re back safe and sound. Good hotel and very beautiful mountains! I hope the paragliding was good – looks like an amazing area for it!

Huseyngulu Baghirov | Baku Azerbaijan | Vinson and Last degree to South Pole
I am writing on my own behalf and on behalf of my entourage, to thank you immensely and to express my sincere gratitude for organizing our participation in the expedition. We had a good experience on our trip. We highly appreciate your efforts to arrange everything well, from the perfect accommodations before and after the climb to the coordination of the porters and cooks on the climb.
Viv Metz | Johannesburg | Everest Base Camp
On behalf of Mike and myself I want to thank you so much for the amazing experience we shared doing the Everest North Side Base Camp and Advanced Base Camp trek. It was definitely an experience that we will treasure forever.
Also thank you so much for taking care of Lance and bringing him home safely to us. Mike and I have not stopped talking to everyone about the time that we had – we will highly recommend Adventure Dynamics to anyone wanting to take on one of your trekking or climbing adventures.
Thanks so much to Jenny for being in contact with me all the time during the Summit night and allowing me to call her at 3.30am in the morning!! Thanks also to Jenny for all her organisation with the bookings, air tickets etc. Maybe Aconcagua next……….
Yanal Khamash | Jordan | Drakensburg
Thanks for you Sean,
We really enjoyed the hike and enjoyed your company. We are looking forward for the next adventure!
Anette Grobler | Cape Town | Aconcagua
My first day back at work and the first thing I want to do is to thank you for one of the most amazing experiences of my life to Aconcagua! Thank you for all the arrangement, the amazingly well organized expedition, the best guides, the biltong and chocolate on the mountain, the laughs around the table and best of all, the humble manner in which you purveyed your knowledge about mountains, safety and just life in general.
I am fortunate to have met you and I hope it is not the very last mountain we will do together. I am humbled by the entire experience Sean – thank you for that. Please also thank behind the scenes Jenny – which you gave so much credit for on the mountain – and although I have never met her, she must be extremely precise and organized to have been able to put such and expedition together without a single glitch! Please send my regards to all the others should you speak to them.
Carl Endenburg | Johannesburg | Kilimanjaro
Thanks for arranging the Kilimanjaro trip, we both really enjoyed the challenge. Stanley and Frank were fantastic, I must be the only person in history to put on weight on the mountain thanks to being fed like a battery chicken. Maria is also very appreciative of having her own toilet. Remi was also good at moving us around the Serengeti safely, great hotels, call me a northern suburbs snob but this is my accommodation of choice.
Cheryl Howard | Johannesburg | Mount Elbrus
I had an amazing time and a very special personal journey! I was very apprehensive about being the old girl with ten guys I had never met! This was also my first experience with snow and I wasn’t sure what to expect. But it turned out to be one of the most amazing weeks of my life and I’ve made some great new friends. The team fitted together, Heinrich kept the spirits up and was most professional, even when challenged by a client on a very regular basis about the timing of the summit and the weather. Once again thank you the ADI team!
Tian Liebenberg | Johannesburg | Drakensburg
I would like to thank both of you for the absolutely unforgettable experience we had this past weekend during our hike in the Drakensberg. In a society and environment where the focus on customer relationship and satisfaction has long left the building, I was delighted with the way in which I was treated as client and a mountaineering novice. From the time of my initial query, to the time we returned home after our expedition.
The enthusiasm and capabilities of Sean and the guides to provide each participant with an authentic experience, is what spurred us on as a group to make the most of it. The fact that we had a person of Sean’s caliber accompany us on what should be considered to be a relatively easy and entry-level hike, shows that ADI still places an exceptionally high priority on customer relations and satisfaction.
It was an absolute pleasure dealing with ADI. Hey, who knows – today The Sentinel, next year Everest!
Brenton Booth | Johannesburg | Elbrus
Just a short note, to say thank you for all your help in organising my side of the trip at such short notice with such great efficiency, i really appreciate it….. I really had a fabulous time with a wonderful group of people.
Usama Hussan | UAE | Kilimanjaro
I followed the site with great interest while you guys were on the Volcano. I’m in Germany for a few days with my wife. I wanted to say that Kilimanjaro was definitely one of the most amazing experiences I’ve done to date. I will definitely be planning to sign on for other events led by you two. Please remember that you guys always have a place in Oman. I will be back home on Sunday, and will courier the photos then.
Henk Myburgh | Johannesburg | Elbrus
Just a short note to say THANK YOU for an unforgettable adventure to Elbrus, it was great and also a great group of people. Please also say thank you to Jenny for making the arrangements.
Neil Esterhuysen | Johannesburg | Mount Elbrus
Hi Sean – Elbrus summit this year was awesome! Yes we had a great time, a bit tougher than I anticipated, but all good.
Johann Potgieter | Australia | Kilimanjaro and Safari
We are back from our “African Adventure”. As you probably know by now the entire group summited (evidence attached for Jonah and I). Thanks for organizing our trip. We were thrilled with everything. Vincent and Matthew were amazing guides and the kindest friendliest people. The other 5 people in our party were great fun. I’ve already highly recommended your excellent service to others thinking of climbing and I wish you good luck in what must be a tough business.
Kim Ackerman | Florida | Kilimanjaro
I am just back in florida now and am still ‘reliving’ the Kilimanjaro expedition!!! What a fabulous trip – I want to bring both my kids next time – I will do it again!!! Thanks to Sean for a wonderful trip and thx for all your help!!!
Robin Read | Johannesburg | Kilimanjaro
Hi Sean. a quick note to say well done to you and your team on an excellent adventure. Heinrich was superb and Rajab and his team unbelievable – thank you. Thanks again for sorthing the Clifton School group (Durban).
Wayne Stuurman | Johannesburg | Elbrus
Elbrus was absolutely amazing. We had a really enjoyable time on the mountain. Everything was excellent, the meals, the hotel and the guide, Anna. The barrels weren’t too bad either. Robby was also very helpful with some great advice on how to go about things during the trek up the mountain. Already thinking about Aconcagua!!
Peter Warrener |White River | Elbrus
I just wanted to thank you from the White River crowd. We had an outstanding experience; loads of fun and excitement and none of it would have been possible without the flawless logistical arrangements which you managed so well. Many thanks to you!
Dr Adri Kok | Bedfordview | Elbrus
From Shannon and myself, thank you again for a superb experience. The mountains are always an elixir for the soul and this trip was no different. What stood out for me was the amazing camaraderie in the group and the energy brought in by the Dugga boys especially. Best regards
Byron Benson | Johannesburg | Elbrus
We manage to get out of Russia and back to SA yesterday in one piece, just! Climbing Mt Elbrus was an epic adventure for me, but the people on this trip made it one which I will remember for years to come. The experience and knowledge gained, added with the endless stories, rated this trip as flipping awesome and top class.
Thanks a mil for everything. Till the next one. . . .
Dawie Marais | Johannesburg | Kilimanjaro
Trudie and I returned to SA over the weekend. I want to add my voice to Kobus`s in thanking you and your staff at Kili for enable the complete group to summit.
Ilana Miller | Florida | Kilimanjaro
I just wanted to thank you for everything you an Sean did for us. I had the most amazing journey. I loved every minute of it. Heinrich was very good to us (couldn’t have been easy with 10 women on a mountain!). Also thank you for bringing the gift bag to the airport that was very nice of you to do that, sorry couldn’t chat for longer, my family was pulling me out of there. I hope to keep in touch with you and maybe do some further adventures with you guys in the future.
Tiffany | Florida | Kilimanjaro
I took an amazing Kili climb two years ago with a small group of women (Jane tied us to your outfit and has traveled with you before as well as her family I believe) with Heinrich as our guide. I am recommending Adventure Dynamics to two friends that would also like to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro next year and I have given them your contact information…and I wanted to give you a heads up. 🙂
My experience is still bright inside me and it is something I have not easily forgotten. It spurred me to do one “Life Enrichment” trip each year just for myself and now I have friends and family all trying to do the same. Last year I went to New Zealand for two weeks and traveled both islands alone and it was wonderful meeting the locals and seeing the beautiful landscapes. I can’t wait to make it back to Africa so I’m thinking South Africa and a safari is in my future maybe for 2014… that and the World Cup soccer in Brazil! 🙂
Next year I turn 40 and will be taking two weeks to handle the east coast of Australia and get in some swimming with the whale sharks! After all, I am an adventurer! 🙂 Cheers and again, thank you for creating memories that continue to linger!
Ray Funnell | Johannesburg | Kilimanjaro
The Kili trip was an absolute blast for Jayson and myself. I enjoyed the views on the Machame route and that extra day made a huge difference. The toilet tent was also a big improvement. Stanley the main guide was really really good and I would recommend him to anyone else doing the trip. He was well organised, spoke good English and was knowledgeable… and most importantly got us all to the summit. Thank you for making our trip a memorable one – we appreciated it.
