Are you ready to tackle the world's highest free standing Mountain and stand on the roof of Africa?

Women Embrace Adventure (WEA) has partnered with Adventure Out Loud (AOL) to bring you an adventure of a lifetime. Including a cultural immersion experience during your first couple of days in Tanzania and that bucket list experience of treking to the top of Kilimanjaro. This really is a trip of a lifetime.

 

 Kilimanjaro is a trekker's holy grail with sheer cliff faces, giant towering glaciers, and endless panoramic views. Reaching Kilimanjaro's highest point is an extreme challenge. Battling multiple long days of trekking, freezing conditions and high altitudes, trekkers must leave their comfort zones and push themselves to the limit. 

There may be blisters and tears, but as you stand on top of the "Roof of Africa", watching the sun rise over Africa's endless savannahs, you'll feel a sense of "Freedom", at one with yourself and with nature, and the euphoria of success. 

With challenging treks, stunning scenery and five different ecosystems, it is no wonder Kilimanjaro has been voted "Africa's Leading Tourist Attraction" for the past three consecutive years. Here's a sneak peek of what you can expect...

 

During this adventure, you will be trekking the Lemosho Route over eight days to give you the best chance to acclimatise and reach the summit. AOL has helped 98% of their adventurers SAFELY summit Kilimanjaro, and we'd love to help you do the same. 

You will  visit and stay at the life-changing School of St Jude. Here you will have a chance to tour the school, join in a frantic lunchtime soccer, handball or netball game, participate in a music or art class and visit the home of one of St Jude's eager young students. During this home visit, you will get the chance to meet the student's family and immerse in Tanzania's culture as you sample local foods and learn to speak a little Swahili. You will share one of the most transformational and rewarding experiences and we know you will love it.
