International Challenges

 Kilimanjaro Trek

Various dates throughout the year


Follow in the footsteps of Comic Relief's celebrity trekkers and climb Kilimanjaro. Experience dramatic African scenery, spot native wildlife and take on the challenge of conquering one of the world's greatest mountains. The trek starts in the rainforests of Lemosho Glades and heads upwards towards Shira Plateau. From here you’ll catch a glimpse of our goal: Kibo, Kilimanjaro's main, ice-capped peak. You continue via the beautiful Southern Flank, Barranco Wall and Barafu Route. Temperatures drop at night, allowing you to enjoy the crisp, cool air under the star-studded African skies. During the days the climb gets higher, often looking down on a sea of clouds. For more information email This email address is being protected from spambots.
