Stephanie Lawton climbing Kilimanjaro with Shedrack

My climb of Mount Kilimanjaro was an unforgettable experience thanks to Wilbert Mollel, our head guide and the whole Kiliwarrior team. Imagine my surprise when I woke up on day 2 to find 22 porters and guides preparing things, singing and dancing for us. All of them helped to make our climb a pleasure.

Highly professional, Wilbert managed the climb with perfect timing so that I suffered very few effects of high altitude, no headaches, digestive problems or the like.

The team monitored our ingestion of water and food urging us to keep drinking water. The food was fresh and delicious, sparking our appetite when it flagged. When the going got difficult near the end, Wilbert was there to help us up the Breach.

Our heart rates and oxygen levels were checked daily. Why, with 22 guides and porters I felt like the Queen of England!
