Mount Kilimanjaro is one of the most impressive sights in Africa and climbing it is one of the all-time great achievements. It’s the largest freestanding mountain in the world and the trek encompasses terrains from jungle to glacier. Reaching the summit and watching the sun rise over the vast African plains truly is the experience of a lifetime.
Our trip is an 8-15 day adventure (including or excluding optional travel time after the climb) taking place annually during the end of August - mid September. Our climbs are split into groups of 20-40 Dig Deep fundraisers and for 2020 each group climb will start climbing on one day between 21st August and 4th September 2020. Groups will be assigned exact climb dates on or before 15th December 2019.
Our fundraisers are undertaking this mammoth challenge to raise money for Dig Deep's water and sanitation projects in Kenya.
Dig Deep works in East Africa, in areas where 8 out of 10 people lack access to clean water and sanitation. We work together with schools and communities to build taps and toilets and facilitate vital hygiene and menstrual health training to the next generation.
