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.

Suswa Community Challenge Kenya

The mountains and valleys of East Africa offer some of the finest walking in the world, rising from the great plains to high altitudes with peaks covered in permanent snow. The valleys and ridges surrounding these peaks offer fantastic and fascinating trekking. Trekking past the volcano’s cauldera we arrive at the school that will be our base for the Community Project. Suswa Primary School serves as an educational centre for many Maasai Pastoral hamlets in the area. The work completed will be manual labour designed to improve facilities and the learning environment at the school.
