Jason Roberts, Sarah Linton and 28 Colleagues including Jacky Griffiths from HSBC are on Day Seven of their Kilimanjaro Adventure. Today….the trek to KIBO CAMP 5-6 HRS TREKKING

We head across the desert style landscape between Mawenzi and Kibo, and reach our campsite at Kibo Huts Camp at the base of the mighty Kibo. Unfortunately, the Mountain claimed it’s first victim today, my (Jason Robert’s) tent partner has been carried off with acute mountain sick, a sad day… Everyone else in the group are in good spirits and ready for the summit attempt tomorrow night!

In the afternoon it is time to rest and eat before the final push to the summit later this night!
