Thanks to AfricanZoom Adventure, I made it to Africa's highest point: 5,895 m (19,341 ft). We went the Lemosho Route and took one week. I was sick before I started, with a cold/headache. If the symptoms went away, they were instantly replaced by a high altitude headache. But I sucked it up and did the first of the Seven Summits.

If you'd like to go up Kilimanjaro with (or without me), book this trip!
