Honeymoon on Kilimanjaro

Our most recent expedition to Kilimanjaro was last month, just before the start of the spring rainy season. Anne and Daniel wanted to celebrate their marriage by taking the trip of a lifetime to Tanzania. Upon arriving, they were taken to our Itikoni Camp in Arusha National Park.  Itikoni is a great spot to rest from their travel to Tanzania and, because it’s at 6,500 ft., they started acclimatizing for the ascent of Kilimanjaro. During their two days at Itikoni Anne and Daniel were able to take game viewing hikes in addition to relaxing and enjoying the amazing food!

Quick and Joyful Kili

This December holiday season, MM Guide Ben Mality spent Christmas climbing Kilimanjaro with a strong family from Sweden! Their friends had climbed with Mountain Madness the previous December when Mark Gunlogson's family went to Tanzania and had nothing but wonderful things to say about their experience. So naturally, they were convinced that this was the best way for a family of 5 to spend their holidays. And all 5, ages 14 to 50, reached the roof of Africa on December 24th!

"Pole pole" on Kilimanjaro

This was the last Kilimanjaro trip of the season and all six clients made to the top. The group arrived on the 9th August 2014 but in two separate flights. George with his kids arrived from Nairobi while the other three arrived with KLM. First night at our private camp was very special place to be. Driving in darkness from the airport, Michael said, “Ben, what are we going to see?” “Nothing!” I answered in a joking way. It is very dark but we could see some lights in the villages, and in the park before camp we saw a waterbuck and three rabbits. So perhaps I was wrong as we did see something!
