REI Summer Campaign
The Rongai Route
Mt. Kilimanjaro, Tanzania, Africa
Client: REI Adventures
Summit Time: 8:29am on December 16, 2018
Our seven day trek began at an organic coffee farm on the northeastern base of Kilimanjaro and took us up 19,341’ to the top of Africa’s tallest peak. From base to summit the dormant volcano boasts five distinct climate zones - agricultural land, rainforest, moorland, high desert and the arctic, shrinking glaciers and all. With each section came curious new creatures, vegetation and challenges for our crew.
