Sisters to the Summit!

Join women of all ages and all walks of life in the first charity trek of its kind – an all women expedition to the summit of Mt Kilimanjaro.

Climbing Kilimanjaro is a challenge to say the least and is one of the mountains almost every trekker and mountaineer in the world wants to conquer. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania is approximately 24 miles wide and 49 miles long. It dwarfs other regional landmarks and dominates the savannah of East Africa.

Conquer Mount Kilimanjaro

Conquer Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa. Climb to an altitude of 5,895 metres. Marvel at the lush rainforest, alpine meadow and barren lunar landscape at the top. Watch sunrise from the summit. A challenge event not for the faint hearted!

Temperatures drop at night, allowing you to enjoy the crisp cool air under the star-studded African skies. During the day you’ll rise higher; often looking down on a sea of clouds. There is much wildlife to see – maybe you will see buffalo and colobus monkeys.
