mount kilimanjaro


  • Located in Moshi, Tanzania, Mount Kilimanjaro is a dormant volcano in Tanzania that has quickly become one of the most popular mountain climbs in the world. In addition to being the highest mountain in Africa, it is also the highest single free-standing mountain in the world at 9,341 feet above sea level and about 16,100 feet above its plateau base. Unfortunately, because of its shrinking glaciers and icefields, Mount Kilimanjaro is also the focus of many scientific studies. 


  • Whether it be a Half-Day Photographic Tour, a Full-Day Base Camp Climb, or a 6+ Day Trek, Mount Kilimanjaro has options for people of all ages and physical capabilities. We can take care of everything from all accommodations and meals to make sure that you are able to see and experience this famous mountain that so many, including Brooks, have climbed before!

gorilla trekking
in rwanda


  • Notorious for the 1994 gruesome genocide, Rwanda, the so-called land of a thousand hills, is now a safe and increasingly popular travel destination. The country's main attraction, the mountain gorillas, have miraculously survived—even thrived—despite a devastating civil war that brought poachers, settlers and rebel soldiers into their rugged park refuge. 

    The ethnically motivated war, which attracted worldwide media attention and eventually was made into the movie Hotel Rwanda, resulted in the massacre of at least 1 million people between April and July 1994. Since then, however, the news out of Rwanda has mostly involved positive change and gradual reconciliation. Local and international tribunals have dealt with the perpetrators of the genocide, and the country held its first elections in 1999, paving the way for the unveiling of a democratic constitution and peaceful presidential election in 2003. 

    The Volcanoes National Park, home to the rare mountain gorillas, reopened in July 1999, and travelers can once again visit these gentle giants made famous by Dian Fossey.
