Amazing wildlife pics! You sure they aren't postcards? the rock on the last couple of pictures looks exactly like the rock we saw at the Giant's Causeway in Northern Ireland. Basalt columns with splitter hand and finger cracks.

Looks really cool. The black mamba potential certainly adds to the adventure, especially if you're a non-smoker, not to mention the opportunity to fight a baboon for a belay stance.

Not that strange for a Gunks climber having to fight for a belay stance.

And the tent on top of the Land Rover. Is there a reason you wouldn't want to sleep on the ground in Africa? wink wink

Imagine them in one of your "Belay Bunny" t-shirts, too cute!

The real summit of Kilimanjaro, aka Kibo is a walk-up. However, Much of the time on Kilimanjaro, you are in sight of one of its lesser summits known as Mawenzi.

http://www.camp4.com/photos/image_detail.php?image_id=461

Mawenzi looks like a full-on expedition.

Did you get to see any dikdik in Serengeti? While they are a bit odd of a creature, there's not much more fun than shouting dikdik out of your range rover!
