Title image - BAI takes you to:  Kilimanjaro
Why climb with Berg Adventures

Kilimanjaro Expedition Dispatch

September 14, 2008 – Dave is Down and Excited to See Ginny!

The Rongai trail proves to be an unforgettable journey

Hi everyone! This is my last day of climbing and I made it down to the starting point. We were fortunate to come down the “Coca Cola” route which is a little easier. The hike was supposed to be about 5 ½ to 6 hours but I talked my group into going a little faster and we made it down in almost 3 hours.

The only advise that I have for people that want to climb Kilimanjaro is to consider going with BAI! They have been great from start to finish, from the planning stages to the climb. I had an excellent chef and was taken care of completely even though I felt like I wasn’t in the best condition after the climb. Secondly, be committed! I felt that this climb required good physical health and I would recommend being in top shape for it. Lastly, don’t do it alone! This is definitely an adventure you want to share with someone. Obviously I wasn’t alone, I had 12 young men taking excellent care of me, but it would have been nice to have a climbing companion from back home.

I am happy and excited to meet Ginny tomorrow and to hear about all her exciting adventures! Love to all, Dave.
