In 2014, Danny Della Vedova embarked on the adventure of a lifetime: he climbed Mt Kilimanjaro in Tanzania to raise funds for UNICEF's work. In his words, here's what it was like.
The experience of trekking to the summit of Mt Kilimanjaro can’t really be put into words.
From having planes pass by at night, to waking up to see the clouds and African savannah below, to the euphoria you experience when you and your team finally make it to the top together - the UNICEF Kilimanjaro Climb was one of the most life changing challenges I’ve ever undertaken.
After a challenging year of training and fundraising to support the incredible work UNICEF does in eastern Africa, the trek was an amazing feat.
So what’s an average day like on the trek?
Since I was walking all day, I always had great quality sleep each night and woke up early each day to watch the sunrise. How often do you get to wake up above the clouds and watch the sun come up over the African savannah?
