Not only will you be helping us to raise the vital funds we need to keep flying, you will be making unforgettable memories and lifelong friends.

However don’t just take our word for it, watch the video to hear from our last group of intrepid explorers who took on the Kilimanjaro challenge for us in 2017.

Watch the video to hear why James, Lynn, Mike and Matt climbed Kilimanjaro for GWAAC last year and what they got from doing the trip!   

Challenge Overview

Our trek with Discover Adventure takes the Machame route, which allows gradual acclimatisation to the altitude and an excellent chance of reaching the summit.   

The trek will start at Machame Gate where you will begin walking through dense rainforest however this will change as you ‘poly poly’ (slowly slowly) make your way up the mountain. See below some of the spectacular views and many types of terrain you will encounter throughout the trip.

A team of fantastic, experienced guides will support you every step of the way to help you reach the toughest and most rewarding part of the trek – the summit of Kilimanjaro, Uhuru Peak. Surrounded by a crater of ice cliffs, the views here are truly breath taking.
