John Colver just sent this photo of the successful team in front of the Keys Hotel in Moshi. Heck, all went to the true summit and none look any the worse for wear!! A little celebration now with the Chagga guides and it’s off the following morning to Arusha for a bit of shopping, lunch and then their flight to the Serengeti. Pleasure/pain is a good way to describe a Kilimanjaro trip except that the “pain” part is first. We all have to work, a bit, to summit Kilimanjaro but the safari portion of the program is nothing but fun. Interesting lodges and tented camps, great animal viewing and some serious photo taking. And, then there’s that G and T sitting at the lodge on the edge of the Ngorongoro Crater watching the sun set over this natural wonder. Not bad.
