We have received word that our team has reached The Roof of Africa: the summit of Kilimanjaro‘s Uhuru Peak (5895 m / 19,341 ft)! Congratulations team!
The team checked-in after they returned from the summit to Kosovo camp. They were packing up camp and starting the descent to Mweka camp (3075 m / 10,090 ft). Big day! First ascending 1025 meters of elevation to the summit and then descending a massive 2820 meters (9,252 ft) down to camp for the night. Whew!
Tomorrow they will have the comfortable hike down to the Mweka Gate (1638 m / 5,375 ft). Where they will arrive in time for a lunch-time celebration. From there it’s on to a 4-day safari of the three major game parks of Tanzania: the Tarangire, the mighty Serengeti, and the beautiful Ngorongoro Conservation Area.
