Mount Kilimanjaro

 

Reaching Kilimanjaro’s peak isn’t nearly as exhilarating as the climb, and that’s why over 20,000

climbers flock to its slopes each year. Make your own history by climbing the highest Mountain

in Africa and the highest free standing mountain in the world. Rising majestically above the

African plains, the 19,341 feet Mt. Kilimanjaro has beckoned to climbers since the first recorded summit in 1889.

Machame Route

Also known as the ‘Whisky Route’, Machame is probably the easiest of the outfield routes, and is widely regarded as the most scenic route on the mountain. It is usually completed in either 6 or 7 days, with 7 being the norm thanks to the obvious advantage of an extra day of altitude adjustment. For those choosing a 6-day option prepare for a couple of taxing 10-hour pushes.

Marangu Route

This is definitely the easiest and probably the most popular route for climbing Mount Kilimanjaro. You can do Marangu in 5 or 6 days and it’s often called the Coca Cola Route because this is the only one where climbers can buy soft drinks and snacks at each stop on the way up.

 

 Gorillas in Uganda

There can be few experiences in the world more memorable and magical than an encounter with the mountain gorillas of East Africa. As the father of gorilla conservation George Schaller once wrote: ‘No one who looks into a gorillas eyes – intelligent, gentle, vulnerable- can remain unchanged for the gap between the ape and human vanishes, then we know that the gorilla still lives within us’.
There are thought to be just 600 mountain gorillas left in the world today, all found in a small area of East Africa straddling the borders of Uganda, Rwanda, and Congo (Zaire).

Where to track Gorillas

Heart pumping, you find yourself face to face with these powerful yet incredibly gentle creatures. Remembering the guide’s list of “do’s and don’ts” you are careful not to make any gestures that can be mistaken as hostile or combative in nature. With only a few meters separating you from the gorillas, you remain watching and being watched. Maintaining calm and composure is paramount especially if a gorilla decides to take a closer look! This special moment ends after about an hour and the group moves back down the mountain. A very memorable morning has been spent.

Bwindi National Park - Uganda

This is the number one place for tracking gorillas in East Africa. Its popularity and reputation is growing, and security was beefed up in the aftermath of the Bwindi attacks. And there is now a considerable presence of Uganda military personnel for safety but not noticeable and the tourists are beginning to return.

Mgahinga National Park -  Uganda

This park takes in parts of the Virunga volcanoes, which span the borders of Uganda, Rwanda and Congo. Seeing Gorillas here however is not guaranteed as they occasionally duck across the border into Congo. Security here is good and the place is accessible and the Army is around to keep watch. The permits cost more and more time is needed to get one.
