|Our first sight of Kilimanjaro||Just coming into land|
|One night at the Mountain Inn...||and it's off to the National Park|
|All fit & healthy and raring to go...||and we're off into the rain forest|
|A short pause prior to reaching...||Mandara Huts - where we stay overnight|
|Then it's off again into the damp cloud...||...to reach Horombo Huts where we stay for two nights|
|Alex fills us in on what lies ahead||As dawn breaks we get a fantastic view of our goal|
|On the acclimatisation day we visit Zebra Rocks...||... and peak at The Saddle|
|Drawn breaks again and we break camp..||... heading ever upward and nearer|
|That's what we have all come for...||...the landscape turns to desert...|
|...we quench our thirst and keep hydrated...||...and we reach Kibo Hut|
|No, we weren't in the tents...||Tea & popcorn|
