Craig John called from the hotel in Moshi to report that the Kilimanjaro Team are happy, healthy, and clean! They were about to sit down to their celebratory dinner with their local Chagga staff to celebrate their successful climb. Well done! They had a good day today, finishing up the descent from Mweka Camp to the Gate in under three hours. Craig said they had some rain this morning, and the trail was a bit muddy. Now the weather has improved, and it is sunny in Moshi.
Tomorrow the Team will make the 2-hour drive over to the large city of Arusha from where they will take a short afternoon flight to the Serengeti. A scenic, 50-minute flight takes them from a city of over million people to the wilds of the Serengeti. Its magical! By this time all discussion will be about what animals each person is most looking forward to seeing. The Team is about to be blown away by the diversity and quantity of wildlife that the Serengeti supports. Its truly amazing and hard to comprehend, much less explain in a few words. We’d like to once again congratulate the Team on a job well done and we know they will enjoy what they are about to experience.
