We made it to the top!

Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest freestanding mountain in the world and also the highest mountain on the African continent at 5,896m, is a magnet for trekkers and climbers the world over. 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.

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. The trek takes us through dense tropical rainforest, moorland and scree until we reach Uhuru Peak, climbing one of the most impressive mountains in the world for simply breathtaking views. A tough but spectacularly rewarding route. On reaching the summit you will feel a sense of overwhelming achievement, a truly unforgettable charity challenge.
