I am finally done planning the Kilimanjaro Tour 2019.
While I already communicated the idea and the rough dates before, the planning has finished now.
The Kilimanjaro Tour 2019 will take place from June 1st to 16th 2019.
Not only the summit of Kilimanjaro is this tours special to offer. We will hike for 10 days in total with a 2 days break in between. On the first 4 days we will summit the neighboring Mt Meru followed by 6 days on Mt Kilimanjaro.
You might wonder why I am planning to offer a Kilimanjaro tour in 2019 and haven’t done that much earlier.
The simple reason is that I received my initial inspiration and advice while becoming a coach from a friend who did Kilimanjaro tours himself. For me it was crystal clear to not interfere with a similar product as long as he is offering the same. I never tried to become a copy and never did. I had to go my own way and learned my lessons in Sahara over the last years. As my friend suddenly announced to discontinue his Kili tours, I was asked by people who planned to go with him in the first place if we wouldn’t go together. After all had I several years of experience in Tanzania by now, visited the Kilimanjaro region before and flew multiple times just across the rim leaving me questioning when I will stand on that rim myself. Due to my experience in Tanzania I have a pretty good team to rely on by now.
When I was a child I was amazed by Africa. When I thought about it, three things came to my mind:
When I traveled South of the Sahara for the first time in my life, I visited Zanzibar, saw Mt Kilimanjaro & Mt Meru, went to Serengeti & Ngorongoro and knew immediately that I will be back. Especially summiting Kilimanjaro has been on my bucket list ever since.
Because it is the prettier route. While Kili is more abut the size and being the largest in Africa, the Meru is nicer to climb and offers the more spectacular view, especially a cloud free view on Kilimanjaro at sunrise. It is also less traveled, as well as a perfect acclimatization, for the altitude as well as for the culture. Even for me it is a culture clash, every single time that I visit East Africa.
Almost everything is different and I believe it would be a shame to let all that fascinating cultural experience be waisted by joining the very touristic Kili ascendent ride away. Let us enjoy land, people, culture and scenery some more days and get accustomed to the altitude on a slightly lower mountain. We will have better focus, concentration, joy and breath when starting the summit of the big one?
I don’t know yet if it will be the spiritual journey that I am expecting. I am not and I will not be a travel agent. I do extraordinary self awareness seminars and I choose special places as the seminar place.
If I won’t feel a vibe as strong as in Sahara or if I am not at my best, I won’t do the tour again.
This is the main reason for the special price which will only be available this time. Either the price will go up to reasonable amount for a two week, life changing double summit coaching seminar or it will remain the only one.
As I write this I am only accepting two more applications for the trip. So if you are thinking about it, hurry up.
We will go with a very experienced and nice guide Philemon on both tours, we will have a medical doctor with us who has experience in high altitude medicine and tropical medicine. She is also a fluent swahili speaker. I have several years business experience in Tanzania and we will have local backup support by my long time local manager and business partner.
I am sure it will be a blast. Let me know when you want to be on the team.
