Kilimanjaro:  First Day on the Trail

Jambo!
Kaboom went the thunder, down came the rain.  Thank goodness we were in our very comfortable rooms at the Dik Dik hotel.
After breakfast our vehicles were loaded and ready, we climbed aboard and began the drive to Kilimanjaro’s Machame gate (5,900’) where our climb began.

We had perfect conditions for the climb today. With the beginning of the climb located in the rainforest it can be a tough start with high heat and humidity. Not for this group of lucky folk, light clouds, mild temps is what we had to deal with. Happy is this guide with the performance of his team today, everyone is looking strong and feeling great. 
We are now at the Machame camp, the first of many.

Lots to do, dispatch with ya all tomorrow.

Cheers,
RMI Guide Mark Tucker
