Marie Curie Mount Kilimanjaro Trek 2023

12th - 22nd January 2023

Scale one of the highest freestanding mountains in the world and see Tanzania from Africa’s highest peak. Challenge yourself to take part in the Kilimanjaro Trek and raise money for Marie Curie.

The mountain is a designated national park and is administered from the Marangu Gate on the south side, and all expeditions are obliged to complete formalities before proceeding.  The two principle peaks of the massif are Kibo, a volcanic crater, and the seldom visited and lower Mawenzi (5,149m).  The highest point on Kibo is known as Uhuru; Gillman’s Point is a subsidiary blip on the rim at 5,685m.

Kibo dominates the game-filled Kenya plains to the north and the fertile lands around Arusha in Tanzania to the south.  You will ascend the mountain via the Machame Route which rises from the Tanzanian side of the mountain and is arguably the most spectacular and beautiful of all the routes on Kilimanjaro. The route is challenging but does not require any technical climbing and should be within the compass of any moderately fit person who has done sufficient training

  • Ultimate Challenges are fantastic to work with and the team go over and beyond to ensure that their charities and charity supporters are superbly well looked after. They take immense pride in creating exciting and challenging itineraries that really appeal. I always know I am in safe hands when working with them. - Lucy Dawes, Events Fundraising Manager, The Alzheimers Society
