Best Selling Author Writes About Experience with Ultimate Kilimanjaro®

Tim Ward, best selling author of What the Buddha Never Taught, Savage Breast and Arousing the Goddess, successfully climbed Mount Kilimanjaro with Ultimate Kilimanjaro®. His first hand account of his journey is zombies on kilimanjaroavailable in his book, Zombies on Kilimanjaroimage, a humorous and thoughtful literary travel narrative.

Book Description
A father and son climb Mount Kilimanjaro. On the journey to the roof of Africa they traverse the treacherous terrain of fatherhood, divorce, dark secrets and old grudges, and forge an authentic adult relationship. The high-altitude trek takes them through some of the weirdest landscapes on the planet, and the final all-night climb to the frozen summit tests their endurance. On the way to the top father and son explore how our stories about ourselves can imprison us in the past, and the importance of letting go.The mountain too has a story to tell, a story about climate change and the future of humankind - a future etched all too clearly on Kilimanjaro’s retreating glaciers.

Should I be Concerned About Ebola?

You have probably heard the news about the ongoing Ebola epidemic in Africa. As of January 5, 2015, there have been approximately 20,600 reported cases, with nearly 100% of these cases originating in West Africa (Sierra Leone, Guinea, Liberia).

ebola map

There is virtually zero risk of exposure to Ebola while in Tanzania. As the map illustrates, the outbreak is many thousands of miles away. Ebola is transmitted through direct contact with an infected person's body fluids. Infected people are not contagious during the incubation period, and only become contagious with the onset of symptoms. Therefore people who are most at risk are health care workers and families of infected people, not tourists.

While we understand your concern and care for your safety, it is safe to continue with your Kilimanjaro plans until further notice. We will monitor the situation very closely and notify our clients of any changes.

If any confirmed cases of Ebola arise in Tanzania, we will allow clients to reschedule their climb without any penalty for up to a full year later. Therefore, you can book with confidence!
