Jessica and Ethan are a couple passionate about traveling the world and sharing their destinations, travel tips and advice on their popular travel blog: Independent Travel Cats. This summer we were lucky to have them participate in our Climb for Sight fundraiser to raise
money for childhood eye surgeries. The couple chose to use the guide company Amani Afrika to take them up the Rongai Route, a 6 day/5 night trek to the peak of the 19,340ft. volcano. They've written an excellent detailed description of their trip, giving the reader a feel for what it's really like to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro.
Thanks, Jessica and Ethan!
