Video: Kilimanjaro Revealed – The Summit

The next installment of Tusker Trail’s excellent seven-part video series on Kilimanjaro takes us to the summit of that mountain – the tallest in Africa. As you’ll see in the clip, the summit provides awesome views of the surrounding countryside, but it is anything but a sure bet that you’ll reach the top. While the climb is not a technical one, it is still very challenging due to the high altitude.

A surprisingly high number of trekkers don’t make it, even ones that are in excellent shape and have experience at altitude. The route that is taken has a lot to do with that success rate, and Tusker’s clients have a better chance of summiting than most others. If you’ve ever dreamed of climbing Kili, this video will help you to understand the challenges.
