Without a doubt, climbing Kilimanjaro is one achievement in your life and of course of the world’s great adventures and challenges in the world. Kilimanjaro the name itself is a mystery wreathed in clouds. It might mean Mount of Light, Mountain of Greatness or Mountain of Caravans . Or it might not. The local people the Wachagga don’t even have a name for the whole massif only kipoo (and now know as Kibo), for the familiar snow peak that stands imperious overseer of the continent the summit of Africa .

April 23, 2004 A note about traveling in Africa on camping safari with Hagai Lucas Kissila. If I could only say one thing it would be that Hagai is the only person with whom I would go on Safari in East Africa (including Kenya and Tanzania ). Three friends and I were with him in 1994, ‘96, ‘99, and 2003. In 2003 Hagai had begun his own safari company called Destination Africa Safaris.
