Henry ‘enjoying’ the Snows of Kilimanjaro

About Climb Mount Kilimanjaro

This site is written and maintained by Henry Stedman, author of the bestselling guide  Kilimanjaro: The Trekking Guide to Africa’s Highest Mountain. 

It’s fair to say that Henry is a little obsessed about the mountain. Since writing the first edition of the Kilimanjaro guide in 2001 he has climbed the mountain more than 25 times and occasionally leads treks up the mountain himself. And when he’s not on the mountain or checking out the local Tanzanian towns and agencies for the next edition (the fourth edition was published in 2014), he can usually be found living in Hastings, England, updating this website (which was first published in 2006), writing about the national trails of England, answering Kili-related emails and putting on weight. Friends describe him as living proof that virtually anybody can climb Kilimanjaro.
