What is the challenge?

Get your boots on and trek to the roof of Africa – the mighty Mount Kilimanjaro, free-standing at a height of 5,895 metres! Your trekking challenge is to summit the mighty Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest mountain – a magnet for trekkers and climbers over the world.

This challenging trek takes you along the beautiful Machame route that approaches Kilimanjaro from the south, through dense tropical rainforest all the way up to the mighty snow-capped summit at 5,895 metre for simply breathtaking views. This is a tough but spectacularly rewarding route. On reaching the summit you will feel a sense of overwhelming achievement, making for a truly unforgettable challenge! 

How does the money you raise support us?

We are celebrating our 50th Anniversary in 2017 and all funds raised will be going towards our Sussex Giving for Sussex Children campaign, enabling us to continue to support children and their families across the county.
