UK mum and sons trek up Mount Kilimanjaro
Lindsay Hawdon took her two boys up Africa’s highest mountain

We still hadn’t seen Kilimanjaro. My two boys and I had set off from Machame Gate early that morning, through the jungle, dwarfed beneath sycamores and twisted juniper trees draped with silver moss.
