Trekking Kilimanjaro, the Roof of Africa

This summer I traveled to Africa for my first time. Why? To climb Mount Kilimanjaro with family and friends and trek up to the 19,300-foot summit, the highest point in Africa. It was an all-inclusive Anywhere Plus expedition, a life-changing adventure and once-in-a-lifetime cultural experience.

Over seven days, we trekked up to Kilimanjaro's summit via the famous Machame route, and back down. On the day of our summit push, breathing in air with only half the oxygen as at sea level, we took our last few steps up to Kilimanjaro's crater rim as the morning sun peaked above the eastern horizon. An experience I'll never forget!

Below is a set of my favorite photos from the trip. Be sure to check out Anywhere and learn about what could be your own Anywhere Plus experience, whether its Kilimanjaro, Everest Base Camp, or beyond!
