The Children's Centre Mount Kilimanjaro Challenge

  • When Nov 7th 2023
  • Where Africa

Join us on the challenge of a lifetime, as we scale Africa's tallest peak – the mighty Mount Kilimanjaro, in 2023.

The challenge
Mount Kilimanjaro is located in north east Tanzania on the border with Kenya. Kilimanjaro is actually an extinct volcano. It is the highest mountain in Africa, and thus one of the Seven Summits (the highest peak on each continent).
You will take the Machame Route to the summit of Kilimanjaro, which is considered the most scenic route on the mountain. It is also one of the best for acclimatisation, and therefore success of reaching the summit. Subject to weather conditions you will be treated to dominating views of Kibo, the main summit Kone, for most of the trek.
