Mountaineer's Books Kilimanjaro & East Africa
Includes Mount Kenya, Mount Meru, and the Rwenzoris
For trekkers or climbers hoping to reach the top of Kilimanjaro-one of the coveted Seven Summits-or challenge themselves on the remote spires of Mount Kenya, or explore East Africa's lesser-visited areas such as Mount Meru and the Rwenzoris of Uganda, this completely revised guide is ideal.
Author Cameron Burns includes everything you need to know to plan a safe and successful visit to the region, including up-to-date trip planning information and prices, tips on transportation and places to stay, as well as the scoop on hiring outfitters and obtaining permits and visas.
Also included are dozens of useful web sites for the East African trekker/climber, do's and don'ts to help you stay safe, hundreds of useful personal observations from the author in the newly-added footnotes, and a handy glossary of several local languages.
