Interesting blog on one family’s climb of the Machame Route

February 13th, 2017|Videos|

Sheila Dearden recently sent us a link to her blog, which includes a diary of a climb on the Machame Route. Nothing unusual about that, of course – the Machame Route remains the busiest of all the mountain trails – but the blog is well written, full of insight and her philosophy and love of outdoors shines through.

The link is: http://www.playwithoutceilings.com/the-great-outdoors/kilimanjaro-standing-on-the-roof-of-africa

Thanks for the link, Sheila!

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.
