EnkiduWestern Breach  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 13, 2011


Did the Western Breach via Machame and Arrow Glacier. Camped in the crater and explored the Ash Pit and Furtwangler glacier. Had perfect weather except for ascent of the breach. Lots of wind, snow and cold on that day. Watched the sunrise on the summit. Altogether one the best treks I have ever taken

Date Climbed: Dec 25, 2011


Did the 7 day Machame route which gives plenty of time to acclimate. We were beating our porters to camp at times and we were on the summit by 5:30 a.m., it was way too cold and windy to try and wait for sunrise. Also my flash was frozen so I have no summit pics which is sorta sad. We went through the Marangu Hotel on a private climb which was really nice becuase we could move at our own pace. I highly reccomend spending the money on a bathroom tent, it was well worth the $140 and an extra porter.

Such an amazing hike. Many thanks to Tusker Trails. We took the Lemosho Route. Great feeling to reach the top of Africa with my dad and new friends.

Great trip. Did the 7 day option. Summit day hard. On way down guide persuaded us to carry on to lower camp than normal (saying it wasn't far!). It was blinking miles - we did 42km in all on summit day! and my left knee has never been the same since. Perfect weather on summit day - awesome

From monkeys and biting ants in the jungle, through diverse scenery between and every camp to the unearthly scenes above Barafu, Lemosho Route delivers hour after hour. The acclimitization afforded bby this route enabled daily singimg and dancing. Perfect summit day weather AND, we left Barafu to summit at 06:00, not in the middle of the night. Topped off with safari to Lake Manyara, Serengeti and NN Crater. Went with Kilimanjaro Brothers, the happiest bunch of dancing and singing staff on the mountain.

cdreizenMarangu  Sucess!


February of 2011 with a dozen other people from my venture crew- took an extra day at Horombo to acclimatize and hiked to zebra rocks (definitely recommend an extra day for it alone). Great conditions, the receding glaciers were a sad sight. Wish I would have known there were so many rocks to boulder though!

6 nights in changing weather, very few tourists on the route, five-six on my itinerary. A great trip up to a freezing snow covered sunny summit, with great views and nature.

did the hike with Concern Challenges (charity group), organised by Action Challenge with co-operation with tanzanian Ahsante Tours. Brilliant people, well experienced guides and great organisation. 32 out of 37 hikers made it to the top. The hardest challenge of my life...seriously.

Did the Machame route with Zara tours. It rained every single day. It was our guide's 210 summit. He said of all of them our summit day was the most snowy and cold of them all. Our guide also guided Chelsea Clinton.
