Conquer Mount Kilimanjaro for Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity and help us to continue to provide vital support to families who have a child with a life threatening or terminal illness.

Mount Kilimanjaro is Africa’s highest mountain as well as one of the world’s largest freestanding volcanoes. Its peak stands at 5,895 metres above sea level and as you climb towards its mighty snow-capped summit, you will pass through every Eco system known to man.

Conquer Kilimanjaro with Rainbow Trust and experience the challenge of a lifetime. Our trip takes you along the Machame Route, which is widely regarded as the most beautiful and provides an excellent opportunity for you to acclimatise to the altitude.

‘Just a quick note to say that we’re all back (physically, at least!) safe and sound and had a fantastic experience. Thank you very much for your support, I hope that Rainbow Trust benefits as much as we did.’

Kili conqueror from our 2011 team.
