You will take the most challenging 6 day hike, going off the beaten tourist track, and up the alternative Machame route. You start your trek at Machame Gate and the first section of the trail takes you through lush tropical forest where you will see exotic birds and monkeys.
Climbing Kilimanjaro requires exceptional determination and is a huge personal challenge, made all the more rewarding when taken on as a group. The Kilimanjaro challenge is our most demanding challenge and is definitely not for the faint-hearted. The permanently snow-capped Mount Kilimanjaro is the tallest free standing mountain in the world. This is your opportunity to conquer Africa’s highest peak!
Despite the influx of tourism to Kilimanjaro, Tanzania remains a very poor country where international volunteer projects can make a real difference. You will get to visit the projects where we work to see where your money has gone!
After your volunteering you can join our optional extension trip for £699, where you’ll spend a week on Safari! The full itinerary can be found by downloading the challenge pack below.
To join a challenge, all you need to do is sign up by clicking the 'book now' button and choose your payment option. Our partner charity, The FutureSense Foundation, have a fundraising support team who will be with you on your fundraising journey. However, we know fundraising isn't for everyone, so you can choose to either Fully Fundraise for your programme, or Flexi Fundraise. If you choose the Flexi Fundraising option, you will fundraise £1000 and pay the remaining programme fees in instalments.
To deal with the uncertainty that comes with COVID-19, we have introduced the following guarantees so you can confidently book your volunteer programme today.
Although we are confident that programmes will go ahead as planned, if your programme is affected by Covid-19 travel restrictions, your programme will be postponed to the following year, and your fundraising deadlines will be extended.
We are continuously monitoring the advice of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) and speaking with our teams on the ground to ensure we are fully aware of all on-going situations. If your destination is affected by coronavirus travel restrictions, you will be able to move your programme to one of our other destinations
Our volunteer's health and safety whilst overseas is our biggest priority. We are putting in place additional measures to enhance health and safety practices when travel resumes. Some of these measures include increased cleaning at our accommodation, reducing the number of volunteers sharing bathroom facilities, mandatory hand-washing before meals and an in-depth review of all in-country risk management processes.
Loved it! A very memorable trip!Volunteer - Jakhon - Kilimanjaro
Everyday was full of excitement, fun and learning. After the first few days when we were all outside of our comfort zones, we quickly became fully immersed in the new culture and environment. Volunteering in the primary school was incredibly fulfilling, and it was impossible not to grow attached to the bright, ever-smiling, energetic kids who we hope to never forget.Volunteer - Elisa - Tanzania
