The day has finally arrived and we have landed in Tanzania ready for our Kilimanjaro adventure!

It was an early start with a 6am flight from Manchester to Amsterdam, where we had just a couple of hours layover before heading on to our ultimate destination.

After weeks of planning and training it was a wonderful feeling to finally touch down in Tanzania. We had a short journey from the airport to our hotel, where a cold bottle of the local beer was a welcome sight.......

We have a day of rest on Thursday while we wait for Rachel and Larry to arrive from Cameroon so we are heading off to look at a local coffee plantation. Once our team is complete we will be awaiting our briefing from our guides and enjoying our last nights sleep in a proper bed for a few nights before starting our Kili challenge on Friday morning!
