It might look more like Ice­land or Nepal, but the land­scape photo on page 22 was taken on the slopes of Mt Kil­i­man­jaro. If you didn’t recog­nise it, it might be be­cause it shows a brand-new route to Africa’s high­est peak, via the moun­tain’s north face. Pi­o­neered by spe­cial­ist ad­ven­ture tour op­er­a­tor Gane and Mar­shall, the route gives spec­tac­u­lar views over Kenya and of­fers the chance, for the first time, for climbers to tackle the fi­nal as­cent in day­light. The cost to join a 2018 tour is £2,700, which in­cludes trans­fers, ac­com­mo­da­tion, park fees, guides and most meals (gane­and­mar­shall.com).
