Kim’s ‘Friends & Family’ Trip Report Part IV

August 28, 2012  By: Gretchen

We spent our last morning on safari with a stunning walk to Lake Manyara. The contrast of the blue sky and white, soda silt from the dried up lake was gorgeous! After some last bargaining at a roadside curio for souvenirs, we drove into Arusha to meet the rest of the group.

It was a warm welcome to be back in Arusha and meet our climbing team including trusty head guide, Godlove. After an hour briefing, many questions were answered and nerves were calmed…but excitement ensues! Our group of 13 are ready to touch the roof of Africa, led by 5 guides, 4 camp staff and 60 porters! A great team! We will do our best, pole pole.
