Climb Kilimanjaro

Climb the roof of Africa!

Its snow-capped summit rises high above the dusty African plains; huge permanent glaciers flow down from the summit, spectacular views and beautiful ice formations are the reward for pushing your limits both physically and mentally on this, the mightiest of charity challenges.

This trek follows the beautiful Machame Route, approaching Kilimanjaro from the south. Your route has been designed allowing gradual acclimatisation to the altitude – with an extra day included from the more traditional Machame Route; this gives you the platform for summit success. With exceptional support and care combined with highly trained leaders and medics, you will be in great hands to help you achieve the climb of this epic mountain, and conquer the toughest of treks.

The trek takes you through dense tropical rainforest, moorland and scree until you reach Uhuru Peak, the highest point. This is one of the most challenging treks at altitude, climbing one of the most impressive mountains in the world. On reaching the summit you will feel a sense of overwhelming achievement – a truly unforgettable challenge with exceptional support and encouragement.
