East Africa - Kilimanjaro, Mt. Kenya and Game Viewing Safaris

Kilimanjaro rises out of the East African plains to become the highest free standing mountain in the world. It is the only place in the world where one can pass through five different temperate zones in as many days. From jungles to the alpine zone the scenery is spectacular making a climb to the summit a non technical trek like no other. Come learn why Kilimanjaro is one of the all time classics in international mountaineering.

Mt. Kenya is the second highest mountain in Africa. The summit is the crater rim of a volcano that is thought to have been higher than Mt. Everest. It towers above remote jungles and is seldom climbed.

Join us as we host Kurt Wedberg, founder of Sierra Mountaineering International and veteran leader of trips to East Africa since 1996. Through colorful slides, music, and motivational narration come learn why this is a trip of a lifetime and an adventure not to be missed.

From Kilimanjaro (19,340’) and Mt. Kenya (17,058’) to the spectacular wildlife living on the Serengeti plains this presentation covers it all.
