Kilimanjaro Shira Route

Just got back from Mt. Kilimanjaro with my son (we both made it to the peak) and the experience exceeded my expectations in every regard. It was better that I had hoped for and I want to thank you very much for all the assistance, hand holding, and help before the trip. I had never done anything like this, but I can't wait to try it again.

Trek Kilimanjaro Charity Challenge

Straddling the border of Kenya and Tanzania, Kilimanjaro is Africa's highest mountain - towering 5895m (19,340 ft) over the plains below.  This monolith is the highest free-standing mountain on earth and is permanently snow-capped. While no technical climbing is involved, this strenuous 33 km hike winds its way up through equatorial rainforest and across high moorland to the glacial terrain of the summit. While varying weather conditions can affect the degree of challenge the climb presents, if you are fit, you should have few problems - although, of course, the altitude can affect anyone and has little to do with one's fitness. 

This is the ultimate charity challenge and we include a valuable additional day on the mountain for acclimatisation.
We can also provide the Lemosho Route and Shira route options as well. Click for more information on why you should climb Kilimanjaro with us.

 

NOTE: THIS ITINERARY AND COST IS BASED ON A PRIVATE GROUP WITH MINIMUM OF 10 PEOPLE. IF YOU'RE LOOKING TO JOIN AN OPEN CHALLENGE, VISIT OUR KILIMANJARO OPEN CHALLENGE  PAGE FOR DETAILS. .
