Here's a special trip from our friends at National Geographic Expeditions:
Climb one of the legendary seven summits of the world with renowned mountaineer Peter Hillary on a special National Geographic Expedition. Soaring above the rippling tea plantations and low hills of northeastern Tanzania, Mount Kilimanjaro (19,340 feet) is Africa's highest peak. Following the less-traveled Lemosho Route up the western slope, hike nine days through the spectacular landscapes of five temperate zones. On this once-in-a-lifetime expedition, take in extraordinary views extending hundreds of miles, and experience the sunrise from the roof of Africa.
Son of the beloved beekeeper, the late Sir Edmund Hillary, Peter Hillary is, in his own right, a noted explorer, lecturer, and author who has himself carried on the Hillary tradition of exploration, adventure and philanthropy.
This trip runs from July 22 to August 2. To learn more, click here.
