Amputee team to climb Kilimanjaro

So you don’t think you’ve got what it takes, physically, to reach the summit of Kilimanjaro? Check out these individuals from the San Antonio Amputee Foundation, all climbing Africa’s HIghest Mountain in December this year (with film crew in tow) to show the world what’s possible if you put your mind to it:

About the Author:

I am a little obsessed with Mount Kilimanjaro. Since writing the first edition of the Kilimanjaro guide in 2001 I have climbed the mountain more than 30 times and occasionally leads treks up the mountain myself. And when I'm not in Tanzania researaching for the next edition of the guide (the fifth edition was published in 2018), I can be found living near 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 me as living proof that virtually anybody can climb Kilimanjaro.
