CONQUERING AFRICA’S GREAT HEIGHTS
For most travelers, East Africa is avidly known for unmatched safari experience, however, there are a plethora of bucket list experiences to be discovered by adventure seekers looking for exhilarating experiences this side of the Sahara. Can you imagine scaling the tallest mountain in Africa? Mt. Kilimanjaro is 5,895m above sea level and is one of the most challenging summits to conquer with only 60% success rate. However, they say, “victory needs preparation” and we are proud that our very own Peter Njuguna, Serena Hotels and Lodges System Controller in Tanzania conquered Mt. Kilimanjaro.
