We spent two days at the Horombo Huts to acclimatize to the altitude. We hiked past the Saddleback Rocks. Brandon shows us his mountain climbing prowess.


The Entire Crew

The Entire Crew

It seems crazy that a group of 6 hikers needs a crew so large. However, this crew was AWESOME! If anyone wants to hike Mt. Kili or take a safari in Tanzania, I highly recommend that you use Good Earth Travel.

This is the Hormobo Huts. In total we spent 3 nights here - two on the way up, and one on the way down. Yes, that's Kili in the background.
