Kilimanjaro Climb & Safari

Kilimanjaro: Grom & Team at Barranco Camp

Jambo everyone!

Day three here on Kilimanjaro was a little windy and cloudy. But those conditions allowed us to make good time on our hike by keeping us cool but not cold. We hiked up the Shira Plateau for a few hours and reached our high point around 15,000’ (new heights for some) at a place called Lava Tower. We stopped and took a nice break and enjoyed the limited view then easily descended down into the Barranco Valley to camp. Along the way we saw some of the unique vegetation that only grows in this part of the world. The giant Senecio trees that look like something out of a Dr. Seuss book, groundsels,and lobelias.

We are all currently relaxing in camp either taking naps or playing cards. Everyone is doing great and having a good time!
