Kilimanjaro Trek Training – Part IV

June 28, 2012  By: Gretchen

Kim and Jenny aren’t the only ones training for our AAC Friends & Family Kili Trek. Scott and Amanda Brown are two of the lucky people going on the trip and have been doing their own training regimen on Colorado’s 14,000+ foot peaks. We have a few summit photos from them to share.

The first photo finds Amanda on top of Mt. Elbert which is Colorado’s highest peak at 14,440 feet (doesn’t she make it look easy?). Elevation gains depending on route range from 4,100 feet to 5,300 feet – no easy hike!

The second photo was taken on top of Mt. Evans at 14,265 feet. Mt. Evans is one of the most recognizable peaks on Colorado’s front range. You can drive to the top on North America’s highest paved road (and it is an amazing drive!), but the Browns chose to hike to get ready for their Tanzanian climb. We’re sure all this work will pay off when they gaze over Africa from its highest point. Good luck Scott and Amanda!

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.
