IMG senior guide Craig John reports that our late June Kilimanjaro team is on the trail! The members all arrived to Tanzania with all their luggage and yesterday they had a team meeting, got packed up, and took a trip into Moshi to visit the town. Today they had an early breakfast, and then drove up through the coffee and banana farms to the Kilimanjaro National Park entrance station at Machame Gate (1800m). Craig says the weather was cloudy today, but it stayed mostly dry for their hike. It’s about 5 hours trekking in the forest to the Machame Camp (about 3000m) which is right at treeline. The team is doing well and is settled in for their first night on Kilimanjaro!
