Our Kenyan friend Fitz was the only one in our group of three to make Uhuru with our guide Lameik. My wife Anne was sick at Stella and very scared so myself and guide Mohamed took her down. Disappointing not to make Uhuru after so much preparation but we did the right thing. Four people have died on the mountain this year. We spent 5-1/2 days on Kilimanjaro, an unforgettable experience on Machame route. Zara did a good job, our guides were awesome. Went to Ngorogoro after the trek, just an amazing place then spent 3 weeks working in the villages southwest of Nairobi. I will be back to try again, summit night is the hardest thing we have ever done.
