At age 68-turning 69, climbing Mount Kilimanjaro was not on my bucket list, but I was offered the opportunity and took it...and what a wonderful experience.
Let me start with our head guide, Mremi ...what a wonderful human being...great leader with a wonderful team of guides and porters...
For context, I turned 69 while on the climb...and guess what, a birthday cake, and happy birthday sung in Swahili at 15,000 will make this a birthday I will never forget.
I was traveling with another "older" fellow, who celebrated his 63th birthday while Climbing Kilimanjaro, and who shared the same wonderful birthday experience.
The 8 day Lemosho route was perfect for us. Allowed us to get acclimated, each day was doable in terms of time, distance and difficulty. The most fun was climbing the Barranco Wall..
I would highly recommend Jerry Tanzania Tours for anyone considering climbing Kilimanjaro.
