As the big  adventure moves closer, the question remains what equipment is necessary for the Kilimanjaro trek. We collected the 5 most underestimated and neglected items by mountain climbers. Make sure you don’t forget them at home. Better have, than need!

The Top 5 Kilimanjaro Equipment You Better Pack

1. Poncho

The poncho and the gaiters always result in a lively discussion at our Mfalme Adventures office. It causes us quite some energy to convince climbers that a poncho is a very useful item to have. Trust us if you want to leave something at home, because your backpack has no more space – leave that 5th pair of hiking socks behind. The weather on the mountain is unpredictable. A poncho is a light item to pack with big effect.

2. Head torch including spare batteries

We are blessed in Tanzania as our days and nights are equally 12 hours long. But this also means it gets pitch dark between 6-7pm no matter what time of the year. A head torch for the evenings is important, but it’s main purpose is on your last ascending day to Uhuru Peak. To experience the sun rise at the summit, we have to leave the campsite at midnight. For the next 5 hours we hike by the light of our head torches. That’s why a pack of spare batteries shouldn’t be missing in your luggage either.

3. Camel back water bag

Our guides and porters will provide you with drinking water on your trek. The easiest and most comfortable way of consuming the refreshing liquid is a camel bag. Lashed to your back, with the tube always in reach, you can walk and drink at the same time.

4. Day Pack

Your big rucksack will be carried by our porters. After every day’s climb they return it to you in the evening. So whatever you need during the day should be packed in your day pack, e.g. camera, sunscreen, poncho, drinking water, snacks etc.

5. Gaiters

The peak of Kilimanjaro receives quite some snow depending on the time of year. With gaiters to put over your shoes you will ensure that your feet stay dry and increase the chances of reaching the summit.

Giraffe legs are incredibly powerful and each of them ends in a hard https://www.mfalmeadventures.com/giraffe-legs/ https://www.mfalmeadventures.com/giraffe-legs/#respond Tue, 05 Nov 2019 15:41:39 +0000 https://www.mfalmeadventures.com/?p=8135

Giraffe legs are incredibly powerful and each of them ends in a hard, sharp, 30 cm / 12 inch hoof. A giraffe can kick in any direction and in a manner of ways, and its kick can not only kill a lion, but has even been known to decapitate it.Unsurprisingly, very few predators bother an adult giraffe

The Lion King: you’ve seen the movie, now enjoy the reality! https://www.mfalmeadventures.com/the-lion-king-youve-seen-the-movie-now-enjoy-the-reality/ https://www.mfalmeadventures.com/the-lion-king-youve-seen-the-movie-now-enjoy-the-reality/#respond Sat, 28 Sep 2019 05:56:40 +0000 https://www.mfalmeadventures.com/?p=6526

Lucky enough to have seen the exciting, 2019 remake of ‘The Lion King’ movie, released on July 2019? Then maybe it’s time for some real-life adventure. If so, mfalme Adventures can turn your movie dreams into reality. We can’t promise that your safari will be exactly the same as the Lion King story, but we can promise you adventure!

Turning your celluloid dream into real life

Truth, they say, can be stranger than fiction. Take a safari with Mfalme Adventures in Tanzania, and you may well come to believe in that old saying. The 2019 remake of the Lion King movie is not in cartoon format, but even with the move away from animation, it can’t come close to reality. And the reality is what you’ll witness while out on a safari in the Serengeti. Mfalme Adventures can bring that to you, up close and personal. Our safari does not follow one single plotline, but each hour will deliver a highlight, some drama, a story with a happy – or tragic – ending.

Like a good plot, every day has a dramatic beginning

Your day may start with a spectacular sunrise, a natural beauty that in itself, no movie can truly replicate. On safari, that sunrise is magical, different every day, casting its light on the wildlife wonders for which this National Park is justifiably famous. ‘Everything the light touches is our kingdom,’ they say in the movie script. As the sun pops up above the horizon, the Serengeti will quickly become your kingdom, too. Set out to discover the thousands of occupants of this magical land. With your camera or phone at the ready, you will truly be the king – or queen – of all you survey.

Serengeti, a place fit for a King…or Queen

The King of the Serengeti, of course, is the lion – ‘Simba’ in the movie. Your Mfalme Adventures driver-guides are experts in knowing His Majesty’s habits and the favorite places to find these majestic felines. But in reality, the male lion (Scar) is often seen alone, a solitary figure, while it is the lioness who keeps company with her cubs and other lionesses (in the movie, Nala and Sarabi). It is a lioness who heads up the pride, so maybe these ‘Queens’ are really the ones calling the shots?

To be, or not to be: life and death on the endless plains

Unlike in The Lion King movie, the real-life animals of the Serengeti don’t actually talk. Well, they certainly don’t talk to us mere human visitors. But they have sophisticated communication between themselves, very necessary when danger can lurk in every bush or behind every clump of grassland. Warning sounds are issued, when a predator stalks nearby. Dramatic scenes play out every day, as the hunter and hunted seek to outmaneuver each other in an endless game of life and death. Did you know that the Lion King storyline was based on none other than the drama of Shakespeare’s ‘Hamlet’?

…and every movie has an ending, happy or sad

Our real-life story, as our safari proceeds, might contain a number of happy or sad endings: maybe you will see a joyful scene of lion cubs (like the young Simba and Nala) playing together. Maybe, however, your day will be more poignant as you witness a kill. A lion may hunt down a gazelle, or a powerful crocodile might clamp its mighty jaws around a wildebeest as it attempts a river crossing in the migration season. In truth, unlike the movie, there is no script here, no-one can tell you exactly what you might see each day. We can only assure you your time will be packed with highlights. And some ‘lowlights.’ Maybe you’ll laugh… or cry. And remember to consider that, even if you witness a kill, this is all part of the finely-balanced pattern of Mother Nature that keeps things as they are.

…and not all the characters are as bad as they seem!

In the Lion King 2019 movie,  the hyenas (Shenzi, Azizi and Kamari) are portrayed as ruthless and vicious, and should you see real ones hunting as a pack, you will certainly believe this. But consider the positives: primarily scavengers, they help clean up the plains. They pick clean the bones of corpses even if diseased, helping to prevent such diseases from spreading. In the delicate eco-system, every creature has a part to play – however ugly and evil they might appear!  So next time you see the movie, remember there’s a positive side to Scar’s wicked-looking assistants!

And there are other characters, too. In the space of a few days, you will get close to warthogs, though thankfully not close enough to see…sorry smell (!) whether they suffer from the same flatulence as Pumbaa, who features in the Lion King 2019 movie. Other ‘stars’ who liven up the movie, such as the mandrill (in the movie, Rafiki), meerkats (such as Timon) and hornbills (like Zazu), are also likely sightings as you stride Serengeti, the stage of some of Tanzania’s great natural dramas.

And the curtain comes down…

A mesmerizing Serengeti sunset will bring the curtain down daily on your real-life drama. After seeing, hearing, smelling the endless wildlife of our Serengeti, a mere movie – however good – may never seem the same again.
