Scaling Mount Kilimanjaro and Safari
Wendy Kunin and her guide successfully reached the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro October 2nd at 6:45 am. It had been quite a challenge!! Afterwards, the three of them ventured on a Safari, escorted by Kneena, Ndesamburo, a family member of the owner of the Keys Hotel. The Safari to Ongorogoro National Park and others was an amazing, educational and breath-takingly beautiful experience. To be on the brim of a 800,000 year volcano and drop 3,750 feet to the crater, was a challenge and to see all different kind of animals drink out of one water hole, was an amazing site. The only villain was the Lion waiting for his lunch.
Sponsored by Kenya Airlines ,we left on September 22nd by Air Canada to Paris. God provided us with an angel to organize us at the airport Dr. Njuki Muriethi, president of Kenyan Association of Quebec. He paid to have our packages wrapped and to take the extra luggage. Kenya Airlines in Paris was sensitive to our journey, they treated us with respect, warmth and courtesy. We arrived in Kilimanjaro International Airport two days later September 24th, where we were warmly welcomed by the Keys hotel family and by Dr. Urbani Lyimo (head doctor) and sister Frieda Kessy ( Matron )of St. Joseph hospital, Moshi Kilimanjaro.
