Mount Kilimanjaro Trek

When: Thursday 18 June 2020

Where: Mount Kilimanjaro, Tanzania

Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest freestanding mountain in the world and also the highest mountain on the African continent at 5896m, is a magnet for trekkers and climbers the world over and one of the most impressive treks charity events can offer. Scale this mighty mountain and help raise funds for young lives against cancer.

The challenge

This is a tough trek in the world of charity challenge events and takes us along the beautiful Machame route that approaches Kilimanjaro from the south, allowing gradual acclimatisation to the altitude and an excellent chance of reaching the summit. A tough but spectacularly rewarding route. On reaching the summit you will feel a sense of overwhelming achievement, a truly unforgettable charity challenge.

Event highlights

  • Trekking 5,895m, way above the cloud line.
  • Conquering the highest free standing mountain in the World
  • Reaching the summit by moonlight and watching the sunrise.
