  1. Hi There. We are a group of guys who wants to Climb Kilimanjaro.

    We do not have any experience of climbing. The highest mountain I’ve ever “climbed” is 1000m and we drove more than half way up with car.

    We would like to know your best tips, how to prepare, what’s important, what equipment to purchase and different alternatives of pacs to go with you to the top.

    Best regards
