Ayanda Boltina climbed Kilimanjaro on the Marangu route in September 2017

California native Roseanney Lui and Ayanda Boltina from Johannesburg formed part of a larger team who climbed via a 6-day Marangu Route. Led by head guide Frank Kizito and his crew, they attempted the summit on Thu 05th Oct. The altitude sadly turned Roseanney back before Gilman’s Point (5 681m), but knowing what she knows now, I am sure the mountain will be waiting patiently to feel her footfall once again… Ayanda carried the SA flag proudly to the summit – a very BIG congratulations!! May the memories made on your Kilimanjaro adventure stay with you always 🙂 and thank you for choosing Dream World Adventures!

Mohamed Kharva group climbed Kilimanjaro on the Machame route in September 2017

Mohamed Kharva gathered a group of his cousins and a friend for this bucket list adventure which had been his burning desire for some time already. Led by guide Stanley Masumbuko, the team climbed via a 6-day Machame Route. Unfortunately Yusuf Bemath struggled with illness and wisely turned back at Baranco Camp (3 900m). Yusuf, the mountain is waiting for you should you wish to return another time – your commitment, in itself, is commendable! The remaining 5 members persevered onwards and upwards and stood on the summit in glorious weather on Sun 10th September… Hearty congratulations to Mohamed Kharva, Mahmood Moosagie, Rafeeq Moosagie, Shaheed Moosagie and Taha Kathrada on a job well done!! May memories of your adventure strengthen you in every challenge you encounter going forward 🙂
