It’s tough to describe how exhilarating it is to summit Kilimanjaro and see the epic views. From Peak Planet patiently fielding our numerous pre-trip prep questions to JT, our chief guide and the entire ensemble ensuring we got to the top, this was an unforgettable experience of a lifetime. Worth every penny!
