Nicely done. Which route did you take? I'm planning to go in September and was leaning toward Lemosho.
Lemosho to Northern Circuit. Then up to School Hut and hitting Gillman's and Stella Points before reaching the summit.

How crowded was Lemosho? I have read it's considered less crowded than other routes, but hard to tell what that translates to. Also what tour company did you go with?

Kind of crowded for the first two nights camps at Big Trees an Shira 1, but once we go to Moir Huts and the Northern Circuit it wasn't that bad.

22 days in Tanzania...

4 days on Mt Meru...

8 days on Mt Kilimanjaro…

4 days on Safari…

Over 7,000 pictures taken...

It was hard…

It was exhausting…

It pushed my body to it’s limits… and beyond…

BUT IT WAS WORTH IT!!!

Enjoyed reading all your reports. Congrats on the summits and seeing wild animals. Sorry about no rhinos. Four of my neighbors went to South Africa and Zimbabwe for three weeks in September. They said they got lucky and saw about every animal you could including many rhinos.
