Since the last post has costs and prices I wanted to let anyone who is interested know that our costs for 3 adults was barely 1/4th of the Lillac Adventures cost. We opted NOT to do a 2 day climb, so that would increase your cost if you choose to do two days. The total climb in one day started at 7 am and reached the summit at 12:30 ... then the decent we were at our car by 4 and back in Arusha by 10PM. We drove our own car as well. So there are options, if any one is interested in going. Reply to this

we might bring a tent to do it in two days, depends, what we find there.
