Kilimanjaro Summit and Out!
After the Kilimanjaro summit, this incredibly strong team hiked all the way down and out – what a big day! Expedition leader, Garrett Madison calls in from Arusha with all the details:
Hello this is Garrett calling in for the Kilimanjaro dispatch. We got back from the summit late last night after reaching the top at 06:00 am on August 15th. It was a beautiful day, we had the mountain all to ourselves. Stunning views over the Serengeti. Myself, Drew, and his daughter Jordan made it to the top and back down, packed up our camp and just kept going! We got all the way out to the [Mweka] gate and back to Arusha in time for a late dinner.
Tomorrow Drew and Jordan are heading off on safari. It should be a beautiful time on the Serengeti and Ngorongoro game parks – good game viewing.
It’s been a wonderful Kilimanjaro expedition. He are very happy that we got to work with our crew here in Tanzania of porters, cooks, guides, … and support their livelyhood here. They’re just a wonderful group of guys and hopefully we will get to see them again very soon!
