Kibo certainly is "must do" and so much more than just ticking the box and reaching the summit. The journey is its own reward - all the preparations and excitement upfront, making friends with your guides and fellow hikers, the singing of the porters, the...More

My husband and I are keen to climb Kili but a few questions please. We have had altitude sickness before but did not prepare well for the trip. We were much younger and flew into Himalayas and then trekked and carried all our own kit. We would prepare much better this time, but are scared of altitude sickness. We are also worried as I had a severe head injury (yes- it was riding when my horse fell on me- I don't ride anymore!), about 18 months ago, that has left me with homonymous hemianopia. I am otherwise well, returned to work and have trained and worked hard- eg for the Collas Crill non-stop 48.1 mile walk around Jersey coastline. But I believe it might be better for my husband and myself to climb somewhere smaller such as Mount Meru first and then climb Kili? Is that right? Do you do slightly smaller climbs to prepare for the altitude? Or would that tire us out too much before the big one? We are both doctors, so worry about the health aspects. Is it a problem for someone on blood pressure tablets?
