About the event

Looking for an adventure that will live with you forever?

Your once in a lifetime summit of Mount Kilimanjaro to defeat meningitis is waiting for you.

Face up to majestic Mount Kilimanjaro, trekking from the savannah heat to the frozen summit 5,895m above sea level, the highest point in Africa. With panoramic views from above the clouds, you will literally feel on top of the world.

This is a multi-day trek to serious altitude, led by experienced guides. You will need to be fit and healthy but no previous trek experience is neccessary as long as you are prepared for the intense challenge. You will need to be determined and resilient to face the sub-zero temperatures and thin air of the mountain peak with the support of your fellow trekkers and trip leaders. Tough, but truly rewarding, this challenge promises memories to last a lifetime as you make your way to the summit to defeat meningitis.
