Kilimanjaro is one of Africa's most magnificent sights, 5,985m tall at her highest peak. It's the tallest freestanding mountain in the world and Africa's highest peak. Climbing Kilimanjaro is a guaranteed unforgettable experience that is extremely tough, but so rewarding. Read about a recent fundraisers' experience of the Kilimanjaro trek for St Mungo's in her blog post.
It's a tough, ultimate challenge, but we will support you with your fundraising and training before you go, and once on the mountain our team of expert guides and staff will support you every step of the way to reach your summit.
We ascend by the Rongai Route, which approaches Kilimanjaro from the north and retains a sense of untouched wilderness lost on the sometimes crowded Marangu and Machame trails. The easiest of all the walking routes up Kilimanjaro, it has a relatively gentle gradient and short daily stages as it winds its way from the starting point just south of the Kenya-Tanzania border. It passes through attractive farmland and delightful forest to several other climatic zones, adding considerably to the interest of the trek. There are magnificent views over the Amboseli Plains and genuine possibilities for wildlife viewing. We finally across a barren lunar landscape to the summit of Kibo, which, despite its position on the Equator, is permanently covered in snow.
