Kibo    Day 4

The route to Kibo on day 4

The Trek4Mandela ambassadors have climbed to a staggering 3 720 meters above sea level as they continue their journey to summit Mount Kilimanjaro.  On Wednesday, they embarked on a slow, steep 11 kilometre trek of about seven hours.

Late on Wednesday afternoon they reached the second camp - Hirombo hut.

Today the group will continue the third leg of the trek to Kibo hut. Watch video footage of the climb thus far below.
