Deaf explorer takes on Mount Kilimanjaro


Non-sign language users click here for full transcript.

Deaf explorer Mark Flower has trecked Machu Picchu and walked the Great Wall of China, and he's soon to embark on his latest challenge - Mount Kilimanjaro.

Mark will climb to Africa's highest point later this summer and until he leaves we'll be keeping track of his tough training schedule and nervous excitement at climbing one of the most famous mountains in the world.

At nearly 20,000 ft it's going to be an epic journey and one which Mark will be completing with sign language interpreter Victoria Gibson.

We're launching a series of Vlogs in the build-up to Mark's big climb. Every week or two we'll be uploading Mark's latest Vlog and following his progress - from training to packing to the day before the big climb!
