Eben checked in one final time today. Porter tip ceremony – check. Showers – check. Lunch – check. Celebratory dinner – check. Bed time – check. Tomorrow, Eben will escort our team to Arusha and say good-bye. They’re heading off on private safari while Eben will be heading to Nepal to lead our Annapurna region trek and climb of Chulu peak.
We’ll take a break now from Kilimanjaro climbs and let the short rainy season green up the plains of Africa. Kilimanjaro fans should check back in December for updates on our Christmas Kilimanjaro expedition. That team will arrive in Tanzania on December 20th with IMG Senior Guide, Mike Hamill, in the lead.
