About the event

One of the "Seven Summits", Kilimanjaro in Tanzania is the highest freestanding mountain in the world. Its summit rises high above the dusty plains and huge permanent glaciers flow down from its peaks; these views are the reward for pushing your limits both physically and mentally.

This trek takes the Machame route allowing gradual acclimatisation and an excellent chance of reaching the summit. During your six days on the mountain you’ll pass through thick forest, moorland and scree en route to the highest point, Uhuru Peak. This is a challenging trek at altitude, climbing one of the most impressive and well-known mountains in the world.
