The six-day expedition will take you on the Rongai route to Kilimanjaro’s famous 5,895m summit, allowing fantastic opportunities for acclimatisation and the chance to experience the dramatic Mawenzi peak and stunning Saddle en-route. You will take on the demanding ascent to the summit prior to returning to your high quality hotel a day later. After a celebratory team dinner that evening, the following day will offer a chance to rest until being transferred to Kilimanjaro Airport for your homeward bound flights on 20 October 2018 - although trip extensions can also be arranged to enjoy Tanzania's wealth of safari opportunities or to visit the beautiful Zanzibar.

The provisional cost of this challenge is £3,075. All team members need to pay a deposit of £500 when signing up, and have met the remaining balance two months before departure. Trip costs can be paid in instalments to spread the cost over time. Payments can be made by bank transfer or cheque.
The cost includes flights and in-country travel, accommodation, breakfast, lunch and dinner throughout, expedition costs and National Park entrance fees. It does not include your mandatory insurance cover, transport to and from the airport of origin, visas, vaccinations, expenses incurred when arranging to meet your sponsored child, drinks, tips or other expenses of a personal nature.
It's simple really. We want to help find sponsors for as many children living in poverty as possible. All we're asking you to do is tell people about Compassion and ask if they too will become a sponsor and release a child from poverty in Jesus' name.
We set every team member a target to find 4 new sponsors or fundraise £2,000 - or any combination of the two.
All funds raised will allow us to build ten pit latrines at two Compassion projects at the foot of Mt. Kilimanjaro.
If we receive more than the required donations to fully fund the pit latrines, we will allocate the excess towards the next most urgent need.
You should look at this as the minimum - we will give you lots of fundraising resources and ideas, and every additional pound you raise will also go towards support for Compassion's transformational work.
