As the highest mountain in Africa and the largest freestanding mountain in the world, Kilimanjaro is one of the most impressive sights in Africa. Rising majestically from a rolling plain, the mountain soars to an amazing 5,895m high peak.
With four distinct climate zones, you will trek through lush rainforest, heather moorland, Alpine desert, and the arctic conditions of the summit zone. On the final day of the trek, you will ascend to the summit at midnight. The feeling you experience watching the sunrise over the vast African plains from its summit is truly incredible and not to be missed!
The Kilimanjaro Challenge includes 2 days of visits and volunteering, you’ll have the opportunity to be part of the Anza Volunteer Venture, and lend a hand on a building project in a local school.
You’ll get to visit Anza’s social impact hub, Kili Hub, to learn about the work Anza are doing in the community.
Your fundraising goes further than a traditional charitable donation. By joining Anza for a Charity Challenge, you support social entrepreneurs in Tanzania to grow sustainable buinesses that solve the challenges that people face everyday in Tanzania, including access to clean water, access to healthcare and affordable housing.
With your support, we can grow these businesses to reach more people, and change millions of lives across Tanzania.

“Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro was certainly the most challenging thing I have ever done – physically and mentally – but it was also the most rewarding as it required me to push myself to new limits and get me out of my comfort zone. In hindsight, I can’t even begin to comprehend how I managed to climb up almost 6,000 meters with oxygen levels less than 1/4 of what one’s used to, but I realized that with positive attitude and good company, anything is possible. Don’t miss out on this once in a lifetime opportunity!”
