Message from the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro! "We are back in Moshi, Tanzania after an excellent time on Mt. Kilimanjaro with successful summit attempts for almost everyone. Those who did not quite make the summit did extremely well. Everyone made it to at least 15,000 ft. The entire group is doing wonderfully and we leave on our Serengeti safari tomorrow morning."
