What's going on
Mount Kilimanjaro Challenge – Tuesday 5th September to Thursday 14th September
This event is organised by Advocate Events.
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.
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!
