Kilimanjaro Summit Climb

Kilimanjaro Summit Climb 

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 Charity Challenge 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 on 10 – 21 July and 9 – 20 October. The registration fee is £575 and the minimum sponsorship is £5,450.

Another option is that you can distribute the funding of your trip between self-funding and sponsorship, the trek itself costs £3,246 (including £575 registration fee), 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.
