Not of the hit parade, but of the highest mountain in Africa.

After 6 days of trekking to the base camp at 15,000 feet, the ascent of the last 4,000 feet to the summit of Kilimanjaro took over 6 hours.  Tony arrived there with his 4 fellow trekkers at dawn on 28th February 2016.

Having trekked in a number of places in the last few years, including the Inca Trail and the Great Wall of China, this was Tony’s most gruelling and demanding trek. The altitude was greater, the terrain more demanding and the nights camping out were much colder than anything previously experienced.  However, being one of the 85% who attempt it to make the summit of Kilimanjaro made the effort worthwhile.
