Kilimanjaro Climb 2018

Overview

  • Depart June 28, 2018
  • Hike: July 2nd to Sun 7th,  2018. (5 day journey)
  • Cost: $9,000

Of this amount, $4,000 will be for personal expenses--airfare,  climb fee, ground transportation (in Kenya and Tanzania), tour guides, cooks and porters along with covering food, accommodation, visas and other miscellaneous expenses in Kenya & Tanzania. Secondly, Tumaini International asks every trekker to fundraiser a minimum of $5000 as a contribution to Tumaini International.  

  • Route:

There are 7 routes to reach Uhuru Peak on Mount Kilimanjaro. We have picked Marangu Route also known as the Coca Cola route. This route can be trekked in 6 days. (Some do it in 5 and others in 7). It is comparatively easier to climb and therefore the most popular with more human traffic compared to other routes.  It is also the only route with some good amenities—e.g. real rooms with solar & very cold showers at Horombo huts.

Deadlines: 

  • Tumaini International needs to pay a deposit of 10% of the climb fee by December 2017. This means that we need to receive a portion of your Personal Expenses fees by November 30th, 2017.
  • We also recommend that you raise all the funds by June 30th, 2018.

How do I know if I am fit to climb? 

First, talk with your doctor before investing in this adventure. Upon doing so, you will need all the necessary shots/medicines for the regions of Kenya/Tanzania especially yellow fever. Tumaini and previous climbers also highly recommend Diamox to reduce altitude sicknesses. Lastly, there have been many people from a variety of ages, abilities, and skill sets who have summited with Tumaini. Chances are, you can too!
