One of the highlights of our
trip will be to see the glaciers of Kilimanjaro, which are
said to be 80% depleted
being recorded in the early 1900's. They could be gone
by 2015 so we better hurry! Read more... Snows of Kilimanjaro Disappearing...
Hello friends, welcome to Its In Africa You Know. This web site is dedicated to a journey that I made to the top of Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, Africa. Before we begin, I invite you to listen to the sounds of Africawhile you view this web site. It's a very nice Free African Internet Radio Station, enjoy!
Well, well, well, you say you want to climb Kili? Well so do I, again! Let's do it. Planning another trip for February/March 2016. There is room for 6-8 climbers, we'll go with a premium guide service (meaning 3 hot meals a day on the mountain). Also, planning on another challenging route, either the Western Breach or something else. Just NOT the Coca Cola route. Gonna be a blast. Once we get our group somewhat defined, I will begin training regiments on this site, as well as hosting meetings going over everything and planning. If you are interested, email me now!

View the slide show of some of the preparation.
Check the weather in Tanzania RIGHT NOW. Or even better, view our Climate Zone page for a temperature reading of all 5 climate zones. If you need to convert Fahrenheit to Celsius or visa versa, click here! I have also posted this helpful line in the right hand column so one can refer to it easily at anytime.
I invite you to watch this brief video on Mt. Kilimanjaro, it's taken from the IMAX film that was made over a decade ago. Enjoy!
