At 3pm on Monday 12th January, we arrived back at the park entrance. We left Horombo Camp at 8.00am and walked for 4 hours down though moorlands and rainforest to the Mandara Camp.
A hot lunch was waiting for us (brought up from the Marangu Hotel) and after eating and a brief rest we walked the remaining 2 1/2 hours to the park gate.
By the time we reached the gate, we were all spent. It was an incredible experience and to be honest the full enormity of our accomplishments won't really sink in till time and sleep has worked its magic.
We have one rest day at the Marangu Hotel before our next adventure begins and we will try to use some of this time to put up a full account of the last few days.
