Head to Africa and complete a once-in-a-lifetime Kilimanjaro Trek while raising funds for bereaved British Forces children and young people. Reach the summit at 5,895m while supporting Scotty's.

Its snow-capped summit rises high above the dusty African plains; huge permanent glaciers flow down from the summit, spectacular views and beautiful ice formations are the reward for pushing your limits both physically and mentally on this, the mightiest of charity challenges; the Kilimanjaro Trek. A magnet for trekkers all over the world.

This trek follows the beautiful Machame Route, approaching Kilimanjaro from the south. The route has been designed allowing gradual acclimatisation to the altitude –  With exceptional support and care combined with highly trained leaders and medics, you will achieve and conquer the toughest of treks.

The trek takes you through dense tropical rainforest, moorland, and scree, until you reach Uhuru Peak, the highest point. This is one of the most challenging charity treks at altitude, climbing one of the most impressive mountains in the world. On reaching the summit you will feel a sense of overwhelming achievement - a truly unforgettable charity challenge with exceptional support and encouragement.
