Do you want to do something truly extraordinary? Do you want to take on the challenge of a lifetime?

Then how do you fancy enjoying breakfast at sunrise with a view across Africa on 21 February 2021?  That's right, tea and toast from Uhuru peak at the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro at the conclusion of five days tough ascent through dense tropical rainforest, scrub moorland and then snow and ice. 

"I would thoroughly recommend this challenge to anyone who is interested. It was an absolutely amazing experience; absolutely pushed me to my limits and changed me as a person. I made so many new friendships and will never forget it." [Vicky, Carr Gomm Kili Climber 2013]

After the success of our Kili Climb in 2013, we are delighted to now be partnering with World Expeditions to bring you this extraordinary challenge in February 2021.

At 5895m, Africa's mighty Mount Kilimanjaro towers over the vast lands below. Beginning in the Tanzanian town of Moshi, this adventure follows the Rongai route up the mountain, approaching Kili from the north east. Passing through a variety of landscapes and climate zones including pine forest, moorland and lunar desert, the path to the summit offers stunning views along the way. The summit attempt is made in the early hours of morning, arriving at at Uhuru Peak in time for the spectacular sunrise over Mawenzi and the ice fields.

Camping throughout the trek ensures that minimal impact is made to the environment we travel in while allowing you to witness the stunning wilderness views that the mountain is famous for. Designed for mixed ability travellers, this trek allows you to experience the trip to the top of Africa's tallest mountain in the company of like minded and similarly-paced trekkers.

There will be many highlights for all individuals that take part; but here are a few to wet your appetite:

  • Trek to the summit of Africa's highest peak
  • Walk through pine forest to catch a glimpse of the Kilimanjaro Colobus Monkeys
  • Ascend to Kikelewa Caves, soaking up the superb views of Kibo on the way
  • Enjoy a real sense of wilderness at Mawenzi Tarn beneath the towering spires
  • Catch a spectacular sunrise from Gilman's Point before reaching the highest point of Mt Kilimanjaro
  • Raise crucial funds to help Carr Gomm Stomp Out Loneliness in Scotland
