A question for the Great Internet Overmind: a group of friends is planning to climb Kilimanjaro (picture credit: Wiki) around Sept. 13-20th, hoping to add a week in Kenya (I’m guessing the Maasai Mara) before and a similar safari in Tanzania (I’m assuming the Serengeti) after.
They’re pretty experienced elsewhere in Africa, so general hints on malaria pills etc. won’t be necessary. And I’m pretty sure they’re taking the Shira route up the hill, so no need for any advice on the climb itself. But the rest of the trip is still up in the air. So:
Anybody have a line on what’s up with the migration at that specific time of year? Will the various beasties be up north, heading south, what? Any specific places they (my friends, not the beasts) should know about? Recommended guides/operators? Personal reminiscences of Arusha, Amboseli, or Tsavo to share? If so, drop an email here and share away. I’m sure they’ll appreciate it.
I mention this here because I’ve been invited to tag along. Not sure if I can make it, but if I do I’ll post pics etc. in this space. Thanks!
