Kilimanjaro Summit Trek

Kilimanjaro Summit Trek 

At 5896 metres, Mount Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain in Africa and is commonly referred to as ‘the roof of Africa.’ Join African Initiatives and Charity Challenge for a stunning trek through five incredible, unspoilt eco systems to the summit. You’ll take the uncrowded Lemosho Route with experienced mountain guides who will lead you through the Lemosho Glades and up through pristine rainforest full of exotic flora and fauna. Ascending further you’ll see the scenery change to barren lunar type landscapes as you walk across the Shira Plateau. Once you reach the summit, you’ll be above the clouds and rewarded with 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 to the lives of marginalised women and girls who are beneficiaries of African Initiatives’ projects and who live in and around Kilimanjaro region.

Spaces are still available for the following 2020 treks: 16-27 September and 14-25 October. The registration fee is £495 and the minimum sponsorship is £5,500.

Alternatively, you could distribute the funding of your trip between self-funding and sponsorship. You pay a registration fee of £495 plus £2,695 for the trek. The rest of the money you raise will go directly to African Initiatives and to the projects we support in Kilimanjaro, Manyara and Arusha regions. 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. Charity Challenge specialises in running charity challenges and, as soon as you sign up, you’ll be sent a training programme, which builds up as the event draws closer.
