Amani, meaning ‘peace’, is a fantastic grass roots charity, offering shelter, support and education to street children in Tanzania, many of whom have been orphaned by AIDs. All funds go directly to the charity rather than to pay for administration costs. Read about the Amani Children’s Home here.
The team are all self funded – paying for flights, accommodation and support on the mountain themselves. Being enterprising fellows, the guys have a wide range of fundraising activities to help reach their goal. Many have resorted to the traditional ‘exercise’ route, undertaking running and cycling challenges for sponship. Other, more wacky ideas, include fancy dress pub crawls, baking cakes and bag packing at supermarkets. Read more about the guy’s fundraising efforts here.
To climb Kili you need to be physically fit and must acclimatise yourself slowly to the altitude. Our selected team of guides and porters will use their years of experience to guide the team safely up the mountain. Kilimanjaro can be climbed through a number of routes – Marangu (the most popular, affectionately known as the Coca-cola route), Umbwe, Mwika, Rongai and Machame.
