My version of the year 2009 in review - October

October 7, 2009
After 6 days of mountain trekking, I (left in photo, behind Allen, the mountain guide and harmonica player) reached the peak of Mt. Kilimanjaro, Uhuru Peak at 5,896m above sea level, with Gerald Hando of Clouds FM (right) on the 2nd annual Mwalimu Nyerere Charity Climb.
After about 19 hours of walking, I caught this image of Kilimanjaro after we passed through Barafu Camp on our way towards our night's rest at Mweka Camp. We still had about four hours of walking ahead of us. The ascent to Uhuru peak had begun at midnight and it was not until after 10 in the evening that we reached Mweka Camp. It is the longest trek in a day of the 8-day climb of Mt. Kilimanjaro through the Lemosho route.

I drove again through the Serengeti, this time in a small car and a pair of Giraffes stood and posed for my camera.
The Zebra were busy grazing.

I was back in the Moshi area at Rundugai where my host took me to visit a natural spring source. It is believed that the water originates several hundred miles away from Lake Victoria.

I drove again through the national parks and as I was descending from the Ngorongoro crater escarpment on my way towards the Serengeti I saw this lone vulture perched on a piece of rock and seemingly in ill health.

Fabulous. The uncertainty and the unknown can be put to rest by selecting the correct guide for your company.
