Kilimanjaro Trek Training – Part III

June 15, 2012  By: Gretchen

Safari specialists Kim and Jenny are still training for their Kilimanjaro trek coming up in August.  This past weekend found Jenny on the summit of Arapahoe Peak in Colorado’s Indian Peaks wilderness with Arvind Mohanram, one of the people lucky enough to have snagged a spot on our special Friends and Family trek.

There’s no doubt that spending time at altitude and doing practice hikes (especially 14,000 ft+ summits) will help with your odds of making the summit of a mountain like Kilimanjaro.  Kim and Jenny are definitely putting the odds in their favor by trekking up substantial peaks and hiking all over Colorado this spring, as well as working on their cardio by biking to work.  Keep tabs here on the blog; we’ll keep this series going right up until their departure.  Then we’ll bring you coverage of their climb!

Want to summit ‘Kili’ yourself?  Give us a call and we can discuss the route that’s best for you.

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.
