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.
