He Made It!

My dad has just returned from a week in Tanzania where he celebrated his 60th birthday by climbing Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest mountain! I’m extremely impressed and extremely proud of him!













He’s promised to write a post about his experience (but it’s more likely that I will be writing it on his behalf), sharing some handy hints and tips and photos of his 5-day journey along the Machame route. But for now, he’s enjoying a well-deserved break and the luxury of a shower and his own bed!

    Mount Kilimanjaro, Tanzania’s crowning jewel, boasts an exquisite and diverse tapestry of natural beauty that captivates the heart and soul of all who behold it. Its towering summit, Uhuru Peak, rises majestically above the clouds, its snow-capped crown gleaming in the equatorial sun. As you embark on the journey to conquer this iconic mountain, you traverse through a kaleidoscope of ecosystems, from the vibrant, emerald-hued rainforests teeming with life to the surreal, lunar-like landscapes of the alpine desert, each enchanting in its own right. The glaciers and ice fields near the summit are a testament to the mountain’s unique position near the equator. At dawn, as the first rays of sunlight grace the African plains below, the vistas from Uhuru Peak reveal an awe-inspiring panorama. Kilimanjaro is not just a mountain; it’s a symphony of nature’s grandeur, where the harmonious convergence of landscapes, climates, and life forms creates an unparalleled beauty that lingers in the memory forever.
