A man treks Mount Kilimanjaro to raise money for Bloodwise, the blood cancer research charity

Summit the world’s highest freestanding mountain for Bloodwise and help beat blood cancer

Kilimanjaro Trek is an 11-day challenge which sees adventurous types summit the 5,896 metres of the world’s highest freestanding mountain. Participants will trek through unspoilt wilderness and five different ecosystems and pass huge natural glaciers before scaling the mountain to reach the snow-capped summit.

For a challenge of this scale, you need a team behind you. That's why you should trek for Bloodwise. We'll be with you every step of the way, just like we are for all of our ambassadors and supporters.

The route

This challenge takes the less-trodden Machame route which approaches the mountain from the south. The route has been designed to allow trekkers to acclimatise to the altitude gradually. Participants will camp out at night, which provides the opportunity to fully appreciate the splendour of the surroundings and the clear night skies. Once rested, trekkers will pass through dense rainforest and scree enroute to the mountain’s highest point, Uhuru Peak.

Read the full itinerary.


This challenge is difficult and participants do need to be fit and healthy. You don't necessarily need previous trek experience but you do need to be prepared for lots of intense activity. Experienced leaders and medics will be on hand for the duration of the challenge.
