Traveller Profiles

Gary - Repeat Traveller!

I am recently retired, retiring just as Covid hit, after nearly 40 years in retail banking. I’ve just turned 58, and I have been married to Carol for 34 years and we have three boys. Home is in beautiful West Sussex. I’ve always been the out door type and an active climber back in the day. I have been pleased to return to that again since retiring.

Gary has been on 2 trips with us:

Mount M'Goun Summit

Conquer Mount M’Goun, a 4000m plus peak hidden deep in the Central High Atlas mountains, and one of Morocco's best kept secrets.

The Mardi Himal Base Camp Trek

A challenging trek in the Annapurna region that offers breath-taking views of the Himalaya mountain range. 

What was the best thing? That's a difficult question. The remoteness on Mount M’Goun was amazing, with only local goat herders in the same area. The views were simply stunning. Nepal mountains are difficult to get your head around with their beauty and sheer size. But what really makes the trip are the people. The local support, the relationships you develop and the overall camaraderie of the group. It just works.

I’ve completed two treks (so far) - Mt M’Goun in Morocco in June 2022 and the Mardi Himal Base Camp trek in the Nepalese Himalayas in April 2023.


I was encouraged to join my first Tribal Tracks adventure by my friend Steve C, who had travelled with TT before (although I didn’t need much encouragement). Steve is a long term family friend and our families try and ski together most years.

Why did I want to take part? What’s not to like? I love mountains and I like to push myself. Since retiring I have more time to travel too. On a more serious note I had a significant illness a few years back which I didn’t think I would recover from. Challenges like this are a big motivation on the road to recovery.


The two trips were very different, but both were amazing. The support and organisation was top notch. The hikes were on less trodden paths so it never felt like you were simply a tourist.

I didn’t find the treks too difficult - the pace is always nice and steady. My challenge is controlling my excitement each day.


I would advise other trekkers to prepare well in advance. It really makes a difference over a 3 or 4 day trek. Oh, and take plenty of photos but also just stop and look where you are. Take it in - it’s stunning!

I would love to travel with TT again and would highly recommend them. Personable, an eye for detail and a strong desire to create a trip that’s not mainstream. Strong representation on the ground ensures a trip to remember!
