So, here's a pic from the summit of Mt Kilimanjaro!
I managed to catch a cold on the flight over, so spent a feverish night in Mombasa before heading into Tanzania to Moshi, at the start of the trail. I couldn't postpone the start so had to set off ill, I wouldn't recommend climbing a mountain with a cold to anyone, it really doesn't help with fatigue and altitude sickness! But the trail was beautiful, the landscape ever-changing, and as all over africa the locals are a joy to be with. Whilst certainly no walk in the park, this did feel like a welcome change down in gear, in comparison to the Marathon de Sables and Rowing the Atlantic. So now I have completed this trilogy of extreme challenges, all in 1 year! :)


  1. Mr. Peter Gadiot-
    I just found your blog post and I really admire your work and dedication. Is there any possibility to invite you to give talks about your experiences and inspire younger generations whom might not have the access to rowing or climbing but still can take part in their own way?
    Please let us know any contacts should you have a representative we can speak to. It will
    Be our honor to have you reply to us. Thank you for your time.

  2. It’s incredibly inspiring to see people using media exposure to achieve such highly important goals as ending slavery. Thank you Peter, reading this made my day.
