At almost 20,000 feet!
This was a pinnacle adventure in my life - a profound experience. After seven days of incredible beauty, breathtaking vistas, almost impossible hiking and climbing through five different climatic zones, I was standing on top of the highest peak in Africa, the largest free-standing mountain in the world. It gave me an unimaginable feeling of awe and accomplishment. It will take me a long time to come down from this mountaintop!
This is the story of the dangers, the challenges and the triumphs of a group of ten friends, led by the able guides of Tusker Trail on a nine day adventure to the top of Africa and back down.
When I left South Africa more than 30 years ago, I left a part of my soul there. I think I found it at the summit of Kilimanjaro.
I will live the rest of my life with the dream of Kilimanjaro fulfilled.
