I am super excited to announce that this October I will be climbing Mount Kilimanjaro and I want YOU to join me! Please read the below to find out why this will be a trip of a lifetime. To book please call/email the contact at the end of the post. I cannot wait to conquer this challenge with you!
Why climb Kili?
The harder the climb, the greater the view. Life is for living to the full and that means you have to push yourself to achieve the greatest heights. I’m all about growth and personal development and I know that climbing Kilimanjaro, the world’s largest free standing mountain and the only place on land where you can clearly see the curvature of the Earth, will act as a gateway to many enriching personal transformations. To climb Kilimanjaro and stand on the roof of Africa, how can one not be dramatically altered for the better? Kilimanjaro is a place for vision, inspiration, and new beginnings. As the famous song by Juluka goes: “I’m sittin’ on top of Kilimanjaro, I can see a new tomorrow. I’m sittin’ on top of Kilimanjaro. I cast away all my sorrows.”
Dates: 12th – 20th October 2018
This is within the peak climbing season on Kilimanjaro. The weather is good with many clear days.
About the Climb
Towering 5,895m (19,336 ft) above the African plains and measuring up to 40km across, this snow covered mountain on the equator with an ocean of green forest surrounded by dry savannah, is one of the world’s greatest natural wonders. It’s said that climbing Kili is like walking from the equator to the North Pole in a week, providing dramatic changes in vegetation and animal life day by day. Kilimanjaro is also a sky island. Its high altitudes have created habitat for strange and unique life forms found only on a few other peaks on the planet, such as the delicate elephant flower and the bizarre Kilimanjaro tree.
The Rongai Route (Six Days Trekking)
This route has a ‘relatively’ gentle gradient and short daily stages as it winds its way from the star ng point just south of the Kenya – Tanzania border. There is an extra day to aid acclimatisation as the trail climbs beneath the towering spires of Mawenzi.
We will be climbing with the most esteemed Kilimanjaro experts, Exodus Travels:
