IMG guide Jenni Fogle reports that the team had a great first day on the trail. Starting from Moshi, they rode up in jeeps to the Machame Gate (about 6000 feet). Then, they had a nice 4000 foot climb up through the forest to the first camp, arriving a little after 4pm, just in time for some tea, snacks and some well-deserved rest. So far so good!
