Kilimanjaro Climb & Safari

Kilimanjaro: Justman & Team Hike Through the Lush Rainforest

Today we traveled to the entrance of the Kilimanjaro National Park at the Machame Gate. We registered as a team and began climbing up from 5,900 feet.

We left the Cultivation Zone, where bananas and coffee plants grow and we made our way through the Forest Zone. It’s lush rainforest made a beautiful day walking in the cool mist.

We kept our eyes out for the occasional Colobus monkeys in the canopy above but we only heard their screeching love songs.

Approaching camp at 9,800 feet, we entered the Giant Heather of the Heather and Mooreland Zone. Some of the heather grows over 30 feet tall. We are now sitting in our dining tent eating popcorn, drinking tea and relaxing.
