Mount Kilimanjaro and Tanzanian Safari - Info session
Kilimanjaro. The roof of Africa! Tallest free standing mountain on earth. One of the best outdoor destinations for adventure enthusiasts with or without climbing experience. There are different trails that lead to the summit of Kili - Machame, Marangu, Lemosho, Rongai, Umbwe. More adventurous have a summit variation through the Western Breach. Each of these routes come with their own attractions and limitations. We would be covering pros and cons of the major routes in our session. We will also cover different aspects of the climb like fitness, safety, gear, accommodation, risk of altitude sickness and mitigation etc. Most visitors to Tanzania prefer to combine a Tanzanian Safari with their Kili hike. Serengeti, Tarangire, Ngorongoro crater etc are some of the easily accessible (and wildly spectacular) National Parks for a visitor to Kili. We will cover different Safari options in our call. Summary of topics • Information on Mount Kilimanjaro • Why climb Kilimanjaro • Altitudes, best Seasons for climbing • Route selection • Permits and paperwork • Costs • Considerations on selecting guides and/or services. • Fitness training • Equipment • Medical considerations • Safari options There will be a Q&A session in the end I would appreciate it greatly if you could drop me an email ([masked]) about your intention to attend the meeting. This would help me better track the attendees and share presentation material with you at the end of the meeting.
