Karen Hauptfleisch (video)

After climbing Kilimanjaro in 2002, the bug bit and Karen decided to climb to the top of the highest mountain in each of Africa’s 54 countries (including the islands). Over the past decade she has travelled to more than 30 countries, standing on top of their tallest mountains. These journeys are about more than hills and mountains. Karen is exploring the countries of Africa, venturing into remote areas rarely visited by foreigners. She’s learning about the history of country, meeting villagers and encountering more friendliness than animosity.
