Tanzania: Uhuru Peak

So for two and half week I went to Tanzania and climbed Mount Meru and Mount Kilimanjaro with my dad and Marcos. Together with Marcos I also went on a “short” four day safari. (I thought it was long enough, but the experts tell you a good safari to the Serengeti and all takes a bit longer.) I wanted to write a longer report on the climb, but for now these pictures will have to do. (The giraffe was photographed in the national park surrounding Mount Meru.)

We walked the Machame route and our guide was Arushaa (, a nickname presumably borrowed from the town where he currently lives, Arusha. The last kilometer up was quite cold, but overall it was super awesome and well worth all the money. Definitely recommended.


  1. Awesome!

  2. How very cool! That would be a trip of a lifetime for me. I would love to see the animals in the wild, and I agree with you that 4 days would likely be long enough for me for the first time. Awesome photos!

  3. I was browsing for some Twitter info, but got stuck in this album :) I could speak dutch, but I try to keep it international. Very nice pics indeed!
