Kilimanjaro 2019 – Team Ndizi Furaha Summits and Completes climb!

Hello Friends, Family and Loved ones,

The Kilimanjaro “Happy Bananas” Team summited Kilimanjaro on June 30th between 7:30am and 8:30am and then spent the night of June 30th at the Millennium Camp at roughly 13,000ft before descending to the Mewka Gate on June 1st around 1pm. All 15 climbers that made it to high camp summited the mountain and we returned to Arusha on June 1st around 5pm and then showered and went to a celebration dinner. Everyone is extremely happy and proud of what they have accomplished. We had an amazing group and most of the group is continuing on to a Safari or to Zanzibar tomorrow for more relaxation time and more exploration of Tanzania for the next several days. What an amazing journey. Thanks for following our cyber casts.
