First wedding performed on top of Kilimanjaro

It finally happened. Earlier this month Dustin Smoot & Stacy M Allee were married on top of Africa’s highest mountain, Kilimanjaro. Team Kilimanjaro’s Joshua Ruhimbi, one of the most experienced guides operating on the mountain, was there to witness the occasion and guide the participants, as well as help with bringing the bishop to the top to conduct the ceremony (he had to be carried, according to reports!)

We do, of course, congratulate the Dustin and Stacy on their nuptials – and wish them many happy years together.

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.
