overview

Join us to take on Mount Kilimanjaro in 2016 and help raise money to support the work of our Marie Curie Nurses. As you make your way along the Rongai mountain route, enjoy views across the African plains before reaching the mountain's 5,895m summit. This Kilimanjaro Trek is a ten day trip, including six days trekking.

This 10 day trip to Tanzania is a once in a lifetime experience. We will be following the Rongai route, which approaches Kilimanjaro from the north and provides spectacular views of the summit and magnificent ice fields. Trekking with a group of like-minded supporters and experiencing the incredible hospitality of the fantastic Tanzanian crew, will all add to your mountain adventure. We’ll gradually ascend through moorland towards the jagged Mawenzi peak, one of Kilimanjaro's three volcanic cones, before leaving the vegetation behind and navigating boulder-strewn slopes and scree to reach Uhuru Peak, the highest point of Africa's tallest mountain.
