About the Kilimanjaro Trek

Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest freestanding mountain in the world and also the highest mountain on the African continent at 5,896 metres (19,340 feet), is a magnet for trekkers and climbers all over the world. Its snow-capped summit rises high above the dusty African plains. Spectacular views and beautiful ice formations are the reward for pushing your limits both physically and mentally on this challenge.

The trek takes you along the beautiful Machame route that approaches Kilimanjaro from the south, allowing gradual acclimatisation to the altitude and a great chance of reaching the summit. The trek takes you through dense tropical rainforest and moorland until you reach Uhuru Peak, the highest point. This is one of the most challenging charity treks at altitude, climbing one of the most impressive mountains in the world for simply breathtaking views. It is a tough but spectacularly rewarding route. On reaching the summit you will feel a sense of overwhelming achievement, a truly unforgettable challenge.
