Mount Kilimanjaro is the world’s tallest free-standing mountain at 5,895m, towering  over the sandy plains of Tanzania. This breath-taking trek will guide you up the tranquil Machame route where you will hike through deep forest stretching up to moorland and towards glaciers before reaching the Uhuru Peak.

Your challenge will begin at the Machame gate trekking through the rainforest to reach Machame camp. In the morning you will continue your trek across moorland to the Shira Caves, taking in stunning views of Mount Meru and Kibo on your way.  After spending the night in the caves you will make your way to the Lava Tower, on to the Arrow glacier and from there to Barranco camp. After your final stop in the Karanga Valley you will begin your ascent to Stella Point by sunrise and, as your eyes adjust to the light, you will see spectacular views of glaciers and ice-fields, before continuing your trek to the Uhuru summit – the roof of Africa!

‘’Looking ahead of me on summit night and seeing all those head torches zig-zagging up the mountain is something I will never forget. And when we all chatted afterwards about the massive difference we were making to the lives of the disabled people supported by the charity, it gave us all a real glow.’’ – Emma, Fundraising Director
