Mount Kilimanjaro is sometimes called "Everyman's Everest" because it is possible for a novice climber to reach the summit. And every year, more than 30,000 adventure tourists try. But for each person who goes to the mountain, there are thousands more who chat about it at cocktail parties, making plans to go...someday. That's how Daniel Dorr got started: flirting with a beautiful brunette over hot cocoa and spouting impressive plans. Six months later, he was lying on the cold gravel trail at 18,000 feet, panting and hacking in the darkness. Dorr is a typical marketing exec by day but, amped up by his re-acquaintance with a romantic interest; he gained the determination to pursue one of his lifelong dreams -- summiting Kilimanjaro. When Dorr left behind the familiarity of his weekend-warrior lifestyle in Southern California to reach the top of the 19,340-foot peak, he didn't realize he would cross a threshold to a new way of life. As he fondles expensive hi-tech gear, gets vaccinated for the jungle, travels local-style across East Africa, and vomits on top of the African continent, readers share in the rewards, both large and small, of reaching for personal fulfillment through adventure travel.

As a single, female, African American, over-forty, divorcee, the author had an epiphany: She had better start living her life. Having lost both parents early in life, she reasoned that she had many more years behind her than left in front of her. That meant that she would embark on doing all of the things she'd ever dreamt of doing. Having never so much as camped out for longer than a day, she decided to take a trip far from the concrete confines of her urban life, and embark on a solo sojourn with Mother Nature to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro, in Tanzania, East Africa. She had no earthly idea what to expect; not even a clue of whether she could survive at an altitude of 9,000 feet, much less the height of Mount Kilimanjaro at 19,340 feet. Even so, she made the journey across the Atlantic to the top of the highest free-standing mountain in the world. Join the author on this journey as you read her first-person account, and her insight into how you, too, can make a successful trek to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro.

At 5895m, Kilimanjaro is Africa's highest point and the highest freestanding mountain in the world, yet it is possible to reach its summit, Uhuru Peak, without any technical climbing ability. Those who do make it to 'the Roof of Africa' are richly rewarded, enjoying outstanding views, the unique experience of being 'on top of the world' and, of course, a tremendous sense of achievement. This practical guidebook is split into four parts and includes all the information needed to fully prepare and undertake a successful trek. The first chapter covers preparation and practicalities, offering guidance on how to choose a route and an outfitter, along with extensive information on travel, equipment, health considerations, guides and porters and ethical trekking. The second chapter tells the story of Kilimanjaro and the people, plants and wildlife of the region, presenting a fascinating insight to enrich your trip. This is followed by a description of the six main ascent routes - the Marangu, Machame, Umbwe, Lemosho, Shira and Rongai Routes, plus three summit routes, two descent routes and the circuit path which circumnavigates the mountain.

Special insider tips from Hamill, based on his years of experience, as well as full-color photographs of each peak round out this collectible guidebook.

For the purposes of this guidebook, the Seven Summits are based on the continental model used in Western Europe, the United States, and Australia, also referred to as the 'Bass list.'
