About the Event
Join us as KiliTreks Tanzania owner and senior guide, Wilfred Moshi, visits us at the store to chat about our upcoming Mt. Kilimanjaro Trek this August. Wilfred began his guiding career in 1999 as a porter, and within a few months underwent the KINAPA guide-training course to become a certified mountain guide. He began as an assistant guide and, because of his language and natural leadership skills, he became head guide in 2001. Wilfred has climbed Kilimanjaro over 100 times, has traveled the world, and climbed peaks around the globe. And, to add to his list of accomplishments, he was the first Tanzanian to summit Mt. Everest.
If you have ever wondered what it is like to climb a mountain or if you are interested in traveling with us to Tanzania in August to summit Mt. Kilimanjaro, our Kilimanjaro Talks are the perfect time to get a backstage view into the world of mountain climbing. Wilfred will talk about his experiences as a guide and climber, and share what to expect during our trek to the summit of Mt Kilimanjaro. He will be here to answer any questions you have about our trek or other climbs you've been curious about.
This event is FREE and open to the public. We are offering this talk on 2 days because we believe that everyone will enjoy hearing what Wilfred has to say and learn a little something along the way.
First talk: Saturday, February 22 at 5:00 pm
Second talk: Monday, February 24 at 6:00 pm
This event will be held at our store, Champaign Outdoors, located at 2017 S Neil St. in Champaign.
