Mount Kilimanjaro Trek

At 5896 m, Mount Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain in Africa and is commonly referred to as ‘the roof of Africa.’ Join African Initiatives and Dream Challenges for a stunning trek to the summit via the quieter Lemosho Route. Experienced mountain guides will lead you through the Lemosho Glades and up through pristine rainforest full of exotic flora and fauna. Ascending further sees the scenery change to barren lunar type landscapes as you trek across the Shira Plateau. Once you reach the summit you will be rewarded with the stunning views back down the mountain. Not only this, you will have completed an incredible challenge, made friends along the way and made a difference for African Initiatives!

This year, the trek will be taking place between 7 – 17 September 2018 (11 days). The registration fee is £399 and the minimum sponsorship is £4,600. The other option is that you can distribute the funding of your trip between self-funding and sponsorship, the trek itself costs £2,295, if you pay this yourself the rest of the money you raise will go directly to African Initiatives! Click here for more information on funding options.

African Initiatives’ fundraising team will help you set up an online fundraising page and you will be supported throughout the fundraising process. Dream Challenges are experts at running charity challenges, as soon as you sign up you will be sent a training programme which builds up as the event draws closer.
