Way to go Mr Pole Pole! Sounds like you had a pretty great adventure and lots of memories of Kili. I hope to return one day and summit myself. Your blog just motivated me to make it sooner.!

Ah thank you...
As for what's next not sure, the only climbing/trekking I think we will entertain is maybe the Annapurna area in Nepal and perhaps some hiking in the Patagonia region of Chile...maybe Toubkal if we ever get back to Morocco? How about yourself?

Majestic Mountains
Kilimanjaro is on everyone's Wish List. Well done it embraced yours. I have posted this pic of Mt Meru in TB'S "Majestic Mountains" thread in the Photography Forum. Check 'em out.

Hiya fellow Canuck! So glad you made it to Kenya and Tanzania!! Such great memories of both places. Enjoy! The camping and road travel can make you a little weary, the plan to end in Zanzibar very good idea for some beach r&r. Safe travels!

Hey Andrea!
Always nice hearing from you...as mentioned many times this was numero uno trip for me and man did it deliver...really enjoyed the camping, but by the end of the Kili climb I was ready for extended nights in a real bed, totally worked out! Safe travels to you as well!

Magnificent!
How beautiful are these two? It seems like you got very lucky with all your wildlife spotting, so sounds like early Oct is a good time of year for this trip. I would love to hear more about the camping and food/cooking part of the trip :)

Lucky indeed...
Cheetahs were big on my list, spent about half an hour with these two which was magical...still can't believe how close we got to not only these cheetahs but pretty much all the rest of the animals as well...I would say October is a good time, the foliage is pretty brown as it waits for the rainy season, but easier to spot the animals...I'm sure anytime is good but can vouch for October...food overall was really good, we had cooks on our tours that prepared simple but delicious meals: always a soup to start (typically a vegetable of some sort), lots of rice, beans, etc but some chicken and Kenya dude prepared some ground beef meatballs and samosas that were amazing...please ping me with any questions, always appreciate your comments and glad to help where I can...

Just gorgeous!
I haven't seen many close up photos of zebras with such clarity - well done! They are beautiful creatures, love that white ear :)

Zebra

Absolutely...
Agreed, mentioned a couple of times that I wasn't expecting much from zebras as they were so abundant, but man up close they are beautiful...the markings are just amazing, was fortunate to pull up beside this herd mere yards away...and the deep orange eyes with black all around, awesome...
