Climb the highest freestanding mountain in the world and help support life-saving research into leukaemia and other blood cancers.

Our trek takes the Machame route, allowing gradual acclimatisation to the altitude and an excellent chance of reaching the summit. We pass through thick forest, moorland and scree en-route to Uhuru Peak, the highest point. This is a tough trek at altitude, climbing one of the most impressive mountains in the world – are you up for the challenge?
