Mount Kilimanjaro

Want to Climb Kilimanjaro For Charity? Read on…

Our longest running challenge and still our most popular! Mount Kilimanjaro is one of the most impressive sights in Africa and climbing Kilimanjaro is a truly great challenge. Rising majestically from the Savannah lands of northern Tanzania, Kilimanjaro soars to a 5,895m high peak.It’s the highest mountain in Africa and the largest free-standing mountain in the world. The feeling you get as you climb Kilimanjaro and watch the sun rise over the vast African plains and distant volcanic peaks is truly an incredible experience.


Challenge Details

We’ve had over 4000 people and counting book their Kilimanjaro charity trek with Really Wild Challenges since we began. Our treks are fully inclusive, and we only use the very best guides and equipment on the mountain.If you want to climb Kilimanjaro for charity then you’ve come to the right place, whether you are part of a bespoke group for a particular charity or you’d like to join one of our frequent open challenge departures in aid of a charity of your choice. All the info you need to book your departure is below, but if you’d like to speak to one of our friendly UK team please don’t hesitate to give us a call on 0131 553 1743.


Why do it?

  •  Over 95% of all our participants, to date, have reached the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro.
  • From 2016, every Kilimanjaro challenge will, as standard, have a minimum of 7 days to climb. This gives our groups an even better chance of summiting!
  • All our Open Challenge groups have less than 20 participants (typical team size is 8-15). This provides an intimate and memorable experience for our teams
  • We’re an ethical tour operator, with all our challenges locally-led so you can immerse yourself in the culture and so we can provide employment opportunities for local people
  • All our teams fly into Kilimanjaro International Airport to avoid any lengthy overland travel from Kenya
