My son and I took 6 days for this trek - one of them was the acclimatisation day which is recommended for altitude. It rained, hailed, snowed every day except our first day and the summit walk - which was AMAZING under the starlit sky, and although we were both exhausted when we reached Uhuru Peak, our achievement was awesome - I'm 55 and have never before walked so far, for so long a time or so high - in fact I'd never done much more than camp with the girl guides 40 years ago!!!!
