Climb Kilimanjaro in support of Give a Heart To Africa
YOU WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER CLIMBING KILIMANJARO; THE WOMEN YOU HELP WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER YOU.
Climb Mt. Kilimanjaro in support of Give a Heart To Africa. Join us on from February 28th-March 10th, 2016, summitting on International Women’s Day for the experience of a lifetime.
Kilimanjaro is the highest free standing and walkable mountain in the world. It is often referred to as the Roof of Africa because at its 5,895 meters it towers over clouds as Africa’s highest peak. To climb Kilimanjaro, you do not need to have any mountaineering expertise but you do need to be generally fit and have no breathing-related problems.
Climbing Kilimanjaro can be a rewarding experience for many different reasons. It can be a personal challenge, putting your body and mind to the test as climbing Kili is often mind over matter. It can be a great group, family or company event which brings people closer together. It can also be a way to give back to the community from which most of Kili porters and guides come from, and local people get their crops and water.
Give a Heart To Africa is an established non-profit organization located at the foothills of Kilimanjaro and all of its funds go directly back to the community via our business vocational school, women’s co-operative, other businesses and further education sponsorship.
You will climb via the Lemosho route in 8 days, from February 28th to March 10th, 2015. Lemosho can be climbed in 7 days however having an additional day to acclimatize to the altitude increases your chance of reaching the summit. You will start your climb via Lemosho gate and descend via Mweka gate. Lemosho is one of the more scenic routes yet not as busy and has a high success rate of reaching Uhuru Peak. You will sleep in tents provided by the tour operator and eat with fellow climbers in a dining tent. You can bring your own climbing gear and clothing with you or rent what you need in Moshi.
The cost will vary depending on the total number of climbers:
Group of 5 – 9 climbers*: $2170 per person
Group of 10 or more climbers*: $2070 per person
$150 donation to GHTA is built into the cost of the climb but we encourage all climbers to fundraise as part of this once in a lifetime experience. Make your climb mean more!
* Please note that GHTA will not be able to offer the Kilimanjaro climb if there are fewer than 5 climbers.
We look forward to standing with you on top of Mt. Kilimanjaro.
