Join our team and climb the highest freestanding mountain in the world!

Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain on the African continent at 5895m. 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.

This is an open challenge, so you’ll be taking part with a group of like-minded people fundraising for a range of charities. You’ll still receive the same level of support as on our bespoke challenges, and with Discover Adventure’s highly experienced team you’re in good hands.
