Tusker Trail Shares a Guide to Climbing Kilimanjaro for Beginners

Tusker Trail Shares a Guide to Climbing Kilimanjaro for Beginners Climbing Kilimanjaro –– Africa's highest peak –– is a bucket list adventure for just about any adventurous traveler. The non-technical trek to the summit is a challenge, in no small part due to the increasingly thin air as you approach the top. But, the hike is an amazing one for so many reasons, including the unique ecosystems –– five in total –– that you pass through on your way up and the amazing views you'll discover along the way.
If you've been considering a Kilimanjaro climb yourself, but aren't sure what to expect of where to being, my friends over at Tusker Trail have a blog post you may want to have a look at. It is a First Timer's Guide to Climbing Kili that shares some great information that I wish I had known before my first go at the mountain.
Some of the insights shared in the post include putting the climb into perspective with a reminder that the mountain may be daunting, but it is far from impossible to climb. The article also emphasizes that you won't be climbing alone, as others will be along to share encouraging words and provide support when things get challenging. The routes are also clearly marked, well traveled, and easy to follow, taking some of the mystery out of the trek, even for those making their first major trek.
The story also touches on the importance of training for the climb and not just in the gym. You can help increase your chances of success, and limit the amount of suffering you endure, by hitting the trail with a full pack to help your body prepare for the climb. You'll also want to wear in your boots and check out your gear prior to leaving. We're also reminded that reaching the summit of Kilimanjaro is a major life-goal for many, requiring perseverance and focus. It isn't easy, but it is very rewarding.
I've said on more than one occasion that for my money, Tusker is the best operator on Kilimanjaro. If you're considering making the climb yourself, take a look at the options that they have to offer. The company's guides are top notch, extremely well trained, and very friendly. You'll also be hard pressed to find better meals from any other guide service as well.
