Mt. Kilimanjaro / Lake Manyara National Park

We departed Horombo Hut for a long 14-mile hike back to the Marangu Gate and park's headquarters where team members received a certificate stating their climbing achievement on Mt. Kilimanjaro. A & K driver guides met the team at the gate for a 4-hour ride to The Plantation Lodge near Lake Manyara National Park. We stopped in Arusha to pick up President and Mrs. Donald Eastman as well as the team’s safari bags and continued to the lodge located just outside of Karatu, a short drive from Lake Manyara. The team took its first hot showers in almost a week!
