Why join?

A challenging journey to summit Mt Kilimanjaro, the highest peak in Africa and one of the Seven Summits. This journey will give you the time and space to reflect on life, understand what you’re capable of and reconnect with nature. The trek to the summit starts way before you begin the ascent—it’s a journey of self-discovery from the time you commit until the moment you reach the top.



Highlight
We may either take the Rongai route or Marangu route, based on weather conditions and group activity level. The trek itself will take 8 days, which will be followed by a rewarding 3 day adventurous safari (which is an optional add-on) across the vast plains of Africa—offering the chance to see some of the largest masses of animals on Earth & some of the most endangered, running free & wild.

Your host

Ammr Donia

Ammr first found his drive to travel the world while visiting a friend in Phuket, Thailand for what he thought would be a 2 week trip. He ended up spending 2 months there training for Mixed Martial Arts and completely changing his lifestyle. Active adventure travel, reconnecting with nature and challenging himself further on every journey became his way of discovering the world.

Ammr has been to over 75 countries since and has climbed various summits in Asia, Europe and Africa, so be ready to hear fascinating stories about how addicted he is to mountains.

He is more than qualified to be leading this expedition to Kilimanjaro; all you need to do is commit and leave the rest to Ammr – he will be there every step of the way to assist with training, preparations, gear, wherever required.
