Climbing Kilimanjaro

Nov 04-13, 2020

10 days | Tanzania | alumni UBC Travel Club

The vast volcanic pyramid of Mt. Kilimanjaro is one of the world’s iconic hiking challenges. Are you ready?

Join Lynn Kanuka on this fully supported hike to the highest point in Africa, the 5,895m high Uhuru Peak. You’ll pass through dramatic variations in landscape from rainforest, to dry savannah to alpine desert, camping in mountain tents along the route with support from local guides and porters. You’ll be amazed and inspired by the incredible scenery that feels like walking from the equator to the North Pole in a week.

Our carefully chosen Lemosho route is the most scenic trail on Kilimanjaro, granting panoramic vistas of various sides of the mountain. We like this route for its ideal balance of low crowds, beautiful scenery, and a high summit success rate. Climbing high during the day and sleeping overnight at slightly lower altitudes improves your chance to summit successfully. Lynn’s training plan will help you prepare physically and mentally for the adventure.

Climbing Kili inspires transformation; standing on the roof of Africa, you’re sure to see the world in a different way.
