Kilimanjaro: Team Arrives in Tanzania

Greetings from Arusha Tanzania,

Our adventure has begun! The team arrived last night at Kilimanjaro International Airport and we headed directly to the Dik Dik Hotel. It’s a welcome relief to go from our long flights to a delicious meal and a soft bed.

No early risers in this crew, so it was a nice relaxing start to our day. After breakfast we started talking about the details of the days ahead and to sort through our gear to get ready for our departure. With our gear packed and weighed, we took a nice walk down to a nearby town to stretch our legs and to check out the area.

Tomorrow we have an early departure for the Machame Gate where we will begin our trek. With our travel days behind us, it is time to start walking! We’ll check in tomorrow from the mountain.

Till then ....
