Our January 2010 group successfully climb to the summit of Kilimanjaro

I have just got back to UK after leading a private group to climb Mount Kilimanjaro, this is the highest point in Africa and one of the seven summits (highest mountain on each continent). Congratulations to the team who all successfully climbed to the highest summit on Mount Kilimanjaro at Uhuru Peak.

We trekked on the Rongai route taking seven days in total, this is a beautiful walk on the north east side of the mountain with far fewer trekkers compared to the busier Marangu and Machame routes. I will post photos of the trip into his blog shortly.

This trek was organised to support the "I Give U Give" campaign where they launched the world's highest-ever petition that seeks to lobby the G20 to match their fundraising to help eliminate malaria. Please pledge your support to this good cause and sign up to the I Give U Give Facebook group
