Take on Kilimanjaro and Make a Difference



Combining raising money for a cause close to your heart and conquering Kilimanjaro, it doesn’t get much more gratifying than that! This is an opportunity to make a real difference in the lives of people with dementia; you may find that people will be very supportive of you taking on something as unique as climbing to the roof of Africa and will be keen to sponsor your efforts! The money you raise will go directly to the services we provide for people with dementia, their carers and loved ones.

We guarantee that this will be an experience that you will be proud of and reminisce about for a very long time. Imagine how incredible it would be to conquer Kilimanjaro with a group who are ALL fighting for a great cause! You will have each other for support as well as two members of our fundraising team who will be with you every step of the way.


Dominating the landscape like no other mountain, both iconic and instantly recognizable, Kilimanjaro in Tanzania is the highest peak in Africa and the highest free-standing mountain in the world. At 5895 metres, to climb Kilimanjaro is a great challenge, not to be underestimated, but entirely feasible for the hill walker looking to combine a high mountain adventure with going to Africa. Kilimanjaro translates to “mountain of the springs” and its unique position just below the equator offers an opportunity to experience five different habitats from bottom to top, which makes an ascent of the mountain undeniably special. In a matter of days you’ll climb Kilimanjaro from the equator to what feels like the Arctic, moving through grasslands, tropical rainforest, alpine meadows, moorlands and desert uplands to snow and ice.
