Kilimanjaro Trek Training

April 11, 2012  By: Gretchen

This August we are offering a ‘Friends and Family Kili Trek‘ for the first time.  Unfortunately, if haven’t already reserved a space, you’ve missed the boat – the trip sold out quickly!  That said, we have lots of other Kilimanjaro climb itineraries.  Check out what we have on offer and see what’s right for you.

In the interim, we’d like to offer some training tips.  Kim and Jenny will be hosting our August Friends and Family Trek and they’ve started a training regimen already.

Their first focus is on strengthening their legs & building up endurance.  As a part of their training,  they’ve begun riding bikes to and from work every day.  Additionally, they are taking weekend hikes in the Colorado foothills.  Last weekend, they climbed Bear Peak in Boulder.  It’s a 7 mile round trip hike that starts at 6,080 feet and climbs to 8,461 feet.  The climb typically takes 5-7 hours.

Here’s Kim and Jenny at the summit looking ready for more – and they have lots more training to go, so that’s good!  Stay tuned to the blog to see how their training regimen progresses.

20 Years of Experience & Passion

Our passion for Africa began with a dream of living on the continent – a dream realized. We explored parks, rivers, mountains and villages, learned about the flora and fauna, fell in love with everything, and came away wanting to share our passion for a remarkable continent. Africa Adventure Consultants was born of the desire to give more people the chance to experience Africa’s wonders. Let us guide you into the wilderness.

Pick a Destination

Africa is enormous. There are endless things to see and do, and it can’t all be done in one trip. That said, we realize that many people believe that a trip to Africa is ‘once in a lifetime’ (though many more end up realizing once is not enough!). What do you most want to see? What experiences have you been dreaming of? Visit our destination pages to narrow your choices down, browse our safari types to get a sense of the activities and styles available, or talk with a Journey Specialist to hone in on the areas that will deliver the journey of your imagination.
