Climb April 3rd-10th (2011)
I'm planning on doing the Machame route (7 days/6 nights), using the western breach, and hopefully staying on the crater floor on the way to the summit. I'm trying to do it on as tight of a budget as possible (part of the reason I'm looking for extra people), but I want to make sure I go with a reliable company. I'm hoping to get a good quote from MEM Tours, but right now I'm considering Destination Kili. . .
I'm planning on flying into Nairobi a bit earlier and taking the shuttle down, but we can meet up in Moshi. Let me know if you're interested.
I suppose now you have completed your tour. So I'm anxious enough to listen your feedbacks.
Kilimanjaro is such a wonderful place. The three apexes of Mount Kilimanjaro, Shira, Kibo and Mawenzi are all of very recent origin. Shira and Mawenzi both have suffered significant erosion and only jagged peaks remain. Kibo, the central, youngest and highest peak has survived as an almost perfect cone. Although East Africa and nearby Olduvai Gorge is thought to be the cradle of mankind it is unlikely that early man would have been fascinated to the steep and cold slopes of Kilimanjaro at a time when it was probably very active and dangerous.
