Mount Kilimanjaro Challenge

05 September 2017 All Day - 14 September 2017

Conquer the Roof of Africa!


Tuesday 5th September - Thursday 14th September

At 5,895 m, Kilimanjaro is the highest point in Africa. The snow-capped summit of the highest free standing mountain in the world rises high above the dusty plains of Africa. Spectacular views, huge glaciers and beautiful ice formations are your reward for your physical and mental endeavour.

Machame Route

The 6-day Machame Route is the most scenic and diverse route which also gives you the best chance of acclimatisation to get you to the top.

Although a challenging trek, Kilimanjaro is one of the most impressive mountains in the world and putting yourself to the test will be extremely worthwhile when you conquer the roof of Africa!
