The traject to Kilimanjaro (5895m) takes me from Belgium south to the strait of Gibraltar, a small water crossing which separates Europe from Africa. A kayak, or should I swim this one, will take me to the 5th continent. The major difficulty here lies within the political instability, I’ll have to choose my route carefully. A 14.000 km cycle trip will take me along the African west coast and through the Sahara desert. From there I’ll have to cross the mainland to Tanzania and get to the summit of the tallest freestanding mountain in the world!
