Description

Twin Peaks, Africa - http://www.worldexpeditions.com/private/JVEWLR

Twin Peaks Africa, Mts Kilimajaro and Kenya, 1 – 15 October 2018.
15 days - Grading Challenging

Join CEO Annie Gibbins on an awesome adventure trip to ascend the remote routes of East Africa's 'twin peaks' (Mt Kenya and Mt Kilimanjaro). Add the prolific wildlife and rich diversity of flora for which this region is renowned and this trek becomes one not to miss. Don't worry....I'll train you to be fit and ready to achieve this dream and be with you to mentor and assist as required on the entire adventure. Together the traverse of Mt Kenya ascends via the lesser known Chogoria Route with fine alpine walking that ensures we are well prepared for an exhilarating circuit of the summit peaks including Point Lenana (4985m). Transferring to Tanzania we prepare for our climb on Kilimanjaro. We aim to climb the less-frequented and challenging Shira Route, following rough trails through dense forest to moorlands characterised by giant lobelia. From the wilderness of the Shira Plateau we commence our climb to the top from underneath the Southern ice fields. From the summit of Kilimanjaro (5895m) we savour one of the best sunrises in the world.

Cost - $7790, per person, joining Nairobi
Cost based on minimum 8 paying passengers in twin share
