Climb Kilimanjaro
Live the Dream!  Climb Mount Kilimanjaro!





Itinerary: Expedition Kilimanjaro

Our Expedition Kilimanjaro climb brings together the quiet Umbwe and challenging Western Breach routes, enabling you to put your mountain skills to the test. Release the mountaineer in you and climb Africa’s highest mountain on a route that’s relatively untouched. Groups have a smaller support team, while teamwork’s key to increase your chances of reaching to the top - you’re all in it together!

The Umbwe route is notorious for being the steepest and the toughest, whilst the Western Breach offers an ascent like no other, providing the most spectacular view of Kibo. The combination of both routes makes this the toughest ascent on Kilimanjaro, attracting a certain type of participant. A good level of fitness is essential, and previous mountain experience is strongly recommended.

Payment Options

Payment options...

Whether you are climbing Kilimanjaro to fulfil a personal dream, raising money for charity, or both, we have come up with 3 flexible payment options for you to choose from.

Option 1: Self-fund

You pay for your Kilimanjaro climb out of your own pocket as you would a holiday. You can still fundraise for charity if this is something you would like to do and arrange this separately. 

How does it work? 

  • You pay a £399 registration fee to Action Challenge to secure your place.
  • We send you an invoice for the final balance of your trip cost (£2,296) 12 weeks prior to departure.
  • You pay your final balance invoice by cheque, bank transfer or over the phone within two weeks of receipt.

Option 2: Minimum-sponsorship

You raise a minimum amount of sponsorship for a charity of your choice.

How does it work?

  • You pay a £399 registration fee to Action Challenge and tell us which charity you are fundraising for (we sort out the formalities).
  • You commit to raising a minimum amount of sponsorship - £4,600, where £2,296 of the money raised covers the final balance of your place on the trip and £2,304, plus anything raised above your target, is kept by the charity.
  • Your charity sends you a fundraising pack and supports you in your fundraising.
  • You send at least 80% of your fundraising to the charity (not Action Challenge) 10 weeks prior to departure and the remaining 20% before you go. (Your charity will advise you on how to go about doing this).

Option 3: Mixed-funding

You pay for part of the event cost yourself and raise a further amount of sponsorship for the charity of your choice.
