Hopefully I will be wishing you a fabulous new year from 5800m up on the summit of the worlds highest free standing mountain, and one of the seven wonders of the world. With my new friend little Shumba spurring me on and reminding me everyday why I am doing this. I will take the spirit of every single lion in captivity waiting to be executed with me, that alone makes me want to sprint up the slopes. Busy with my final checklist making sure I have everything, with little Shumba looking probably wondering where he will fit in between all this equipment."
Chris we are with you and Shumba every step of the way. We hope your journey is a fun and exciting one and we look forward to seeing all the photographs you will send us and also reading how you are doing as you make your way to the top. I do not think there has ever been a little Shumba on the top of that mountain. Our sincere thanks for bringing the plight of lions in Africa to the top of Kilimanjaro.
