Richard - Mount Kilimanjaro


Join #TeamDemelza for an experience of a lifetime and experience the stunning scenery of Africa from the world’s best vantage point.

Kilimanjaro - Machame Route
You will begin your journey by setting off from the UK on Friday 5 February for a 10 day trip. On day 3 you will begin your once in a lifetime experience. Starting on the South Western side of the National Park you will trek through lush vegetation of the rain-forest and into the Moorland zone with increasing spectacular views. 

You will climb over the volcanic rock of the towering Barranco Wall which is real highlight of the challenge with breathtaking views and a real sense of achievement! You will have a steady climb out of Karanga Camp towards Barafu where you will be getting prepared for the summit day! 

The summit day - the toughest challenge of the trek. The rising morning sunlight gives us spectacular views across the plains below and of Mount Meru in the distance and we feel on top of the world!

Reach the summit with an incredible feeling of achievement, not only for yourself, but knowing you have just completed one of the most iconic treks to support the children and families at Demelza Hospice Care for Children.
