Kilimanjaro Shira Route

Just got back from Mt. Kilimanjaro with my son (we both made it to the peak) and the experience exceeded my expectations in every regard. It was better that I had hoped for and I want to thank you very much for all the assistance, hand holding, and help before the trip. I had never done anything like this, but I can't wait to try it again.

Mt Kenya Challenge

Mt Kenya is regarded as the most visually stunning of the ice-capped African peaks and is home to a great diversity of wildlife, including leopard, elephant and buffalo. It is an exhilarating and diverse trek, with only a tenth of the number of trekkers compared to Kilimanjaro. The Chogoria Route offers the best combination of alpine scenery and acclimatisation and takes us through the spectacular Gorges Valley and Lake Mackenzie before traversing the Point Lenana summit (4985m).
