Can They Make Kilimanjaro Safer?

With the recent, but numerous injuries and deaths on Kilimanjaro (higher than average this year, but very low in the grand scale of things), the Chief Park Warden of Tanzania, has finally come out with a few statements about how they plan “to make the mountain safer.”

To be honest, I don’t know if they can really make the mountain any safer. Sure – beef up the equipment, work on the trails, but you have thousands of people climbing it every month – something is bound to happen. Unless you require them to spend more time on the mountain, you can’t stop people from getting altitude sickness, rock fallings or trekkers falling into crevices. It’s just mother nature and human stupidity.
