I have climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro several times since 2008. In this blog I share my experience of climbing the world's highest free standing mountain, which is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. I also share stories of people I have met during my climbs.

The Kilimanjaro Uhuru Climb: day 2
On the second day of the Kilimanjaro Uhuru Climb to mark 50 years of Tanzania's independence,
Deo Semiono and Aneth Tillya.
we stopped briefly for a rest and I told John Semiono, left, of Zara Tanzania Adventures and Aneth Tillya from Leopard Tours Arusha, that they will be the most photogenic couple on this climb.
Looking good on a photograph has nothing to do with the ability to reach the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro. They had both qualities and reached the summit a few days later.
As a group of porters approached Aboubakar Malipula (with back to camera), a cameraman from Clouds TV, took some low angle video footage.
When we resumed the trek towards Shira 2 camp, his colleague from Clouds TV and host of Kambi Popote, Anthony Nugaz, edged his way up the Seven Hills section, the most testing part of the day's trek.
