Travel & Taste: Kilimanjaro, the Roof of Africa
January 17, 2013
Share the adventures that come with climbing the highest free-standing mountain in the world and the highest summit in Africa, starting from its base in the small town of Moshi, Tanzania. Over eight days, Amy and her companions, guides, and porters climbed progressively up the Lemosho route, considered to be the most beautiful route up to the "roof of Africa". From rainforest and alpine forest to grasslands, moonscapes, and glaciers, it is a journey through diverse natural history and geology. Interwoven with the mountain are also the history and culture of the native peoples. Don't miss the journey to Kilaminjaro as well as views of the majestic Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater.
Location-themed buffet dinner and lecture or lecture only. Pre-registration required for dinner.
