“The trip is not as physical as I was expecting, it is more of a mental challenge.” - JD1962

Mt. Kilimanjaro -- Bucket List -- Check

I was part of a group of 5 people that climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro by the Lemosho Route, during 9 days. I was not sure how the trip would go as everyone in our group is getting up there in age. But this is why we selected the long trek. And based on the advice of the tour Manager we added a day to relax around Moshi. It was also a great experience. We got to visit a school and a very nice hot springs.

Anyway, our guide August was very professional and he really understood that at our age we could not be rushed along. The cook was really great, he was quite funny too. I normally like to eat, so it won't surprise anyone that dinner was my favorite time of the day.

The summit day was very difficult, but we started early. I noticed that many group only had a guide or two with them. August decided that we should take four porters to help us if we needed it, that was in addition to the two assistant guides. And to my surprise all 5 of us made it. No one needed to be carried or dragged up to Uhuru peak (we did see on porter with a nice young woman on his back). After we came down we had a great celebration with the entire team.

I am not sure if I will be able to do something like this again. But for those considering a trek up Kilimanjaro, I highly recommend E-Trip Africa. From start to finish it was clear that they not only knew what they were doing, but they wanted to ensure that we had a great trip, all while staying safe.
