MT. KILIMANJARO & SAFARIS – CLIMB 1: 17 – 30 Nov 2016
We were picked up by bus Sunday, Nov 20th and drove about 2-3 hours to the Machame Gate at Kilimanjaro National Park. We should have been hiking around 11am but there was a mixup and funds were deposited in the wrong banking account so their bank card could not pay for the park fees. After about 4 hours it was resolved and we started hiking fairly late. Below is the main entrance at 5,900 feet/1,800 meters. There were a number of monkeys around which are always entertaining to watch.
