Kilimanjaro Shira route

The walk up Kilimanjaro was absolutely amazing a real personal challenge. I was fortunate enough to make it to the top and I have to say, the view from the top has to be the best view I have ever experienced. From Kili the safari was really stunning...Everyone on the trip had a simply sensational time and it is a real credit to World Expeditions for the organisation.
