Overview

BecomingX-logo 2018.png

Everyone has the capacity to achieve extraordinary things. This unique climb of Kilimanjaro will be the culmination of a personal development journey that will help you challenge your perceived limits and build critical skills. The journey to the roof of Africa will be supporting BecomingX – a charity focused on helping people around the world to build the confidence and skills to realise their full potential.

Overview

  • Summit the world’s highest freestanding mountain (5895m, 19,341 ft)
  • Trek through multiple eco-systems on a number of stunning routes like the Machame, Lemosho and Rongai
  • Benefit from a unique personal development opportunity, led by two leading experts on adventure and personal challenges
  • Fundraise for ‘BecomingX’, a charity focused on helping people around the world to build the skills and confidence to realise their full potential
  • Extend your trip to go on a safari, or relax in nearby Zanzibar

Kilimanjaro climb

At 5,895m (19,341ft), Kilimanjaro stands as the highest freestanding mountain in the world and the tallest peak in Africa (one of the famous ‘seven summits’). Our 10 day itinerary includes 7 days climbing Kilimanjaro via one of three classic routes, providing wonderful views through the forest as we ascend up to the planets highest plateau and the iconic Uhuru Peak. The summit is reached after climbing through the night, and we'll watch the sun rise over the African plains from the highest point on the continent. This is a tough challenge, but also an achievable and enjoyable one.

The experience will be enhanced by an opportunity to visit a local school, set up and built by Moving Mountains Trust, and witness first-hand how your fundraising can help build a future for people in developing countries. 

Adventure Alternative has been running expeditions to Kilimanjaro for over two decades, and with its own company in Tanzania, they have a reputation for integrity and safe, successful trips. The summit success rate is 95%.

Personal development and preparation

Unique to this climb of Kilimanjaro is the opportunity to participate in a series of pre-departure personal development opportunities – preparing you mentally and physically, not just for Kilimanjaro, but also in helping you realise your full potential. BecomingX founder Paul Gurney and our expedition lead Gavin Bate, we will focus on building skills such as determination, resilience, team working under pressure, leadership and risk taking. The sessions will be delivered over Skype (and in person from London) and are open to all participants around the world.

"Just wanted to drop you an email to say a HUGE thank you for the best week I’ve ever had. The entire trip was incredibly well organised from start to finish, and I always felt in such safe, experienced hands. The thought of summit night is still somewhat traumatic, but when I reflect on the week as whole, I feel incredibly proud and SO pleased I took the plunge and booked the trip all those months ago."

BecomingX – charity fundraising

BECOMINGX – CHARITY FUNDRAISING

BecomingX (www.becomingx.org) is a charity founded on the belief that anyone, regardless of background or societal barriers, can achieve truly extraordinary things. It is focused on equipping people around the world with the skills and confidence to realise their full potential. Through working with the world’s most iconic and inspiring people, BecomingX aims to demystify what it takes to succeed and help people build practical, life changing skills such as confidence, determination, resilience and leadership. We work with other charities around the world to help deliver our aim of creating a world where everyone can realise their potential. We ask you to fundraise a minimum of £2,500 to take part in the challenge, money which will help achieve five objectives:

  • To help us build inspiring content and materials and to achieve our target of reaching 100m people around the world
  • To fund our face to face delivery programmes where we aim to reach 1m people (through collaboration with our beneficiary organisations)
  • To provide funding for the development of the school you will visit in Tanzania and their education programmes (with Moving Mountains)
  • To help us support our beneficiaries (e.g. TeachFirst, Enactus and One Young World) in realising our shared goals

You will be given encouragement and support throughout and benefit from the experience of a team that has helped over 1,000 people fundraise for international challenge events. Your efforts will directly improve the skills, confidence and opportunities of others.

 

Travel Insurance

We advise you to take out travel insurance as soon as possible to cover potential events that might cause you to cancel your trip.

You need to ensure that you have a policy which covers trekking to 5895m, but it does not need to cover technical climbing. You should bring with you a copy of your policy and ensure your tent mate knows where you keep it. It is also worth bringing a photocopy of your passport and to keep it separate to your own documents just in case you lose your passport.

Local Providers

Local provider for this trip is our own local registered outfit Adventure Alternative Tanzania. We provide full employment for our subsidiary company alongside excellent rates of pay, equipment, training and career development.

Fitness

Mount Kilimanjaro fitness, terrain, camps and support

This is a trek to climb Kilimanjaro with no technical requirements, but it does offer a mountain experience which includes camping and being outdoors all the time, and walking uphill every day for a week for an average of 5 or 6 hours per day.  Any regular hill walker will find climbing Kilimanjaro within his or her capabilities, but also remember  that you will be sleeping and eating on the mountain too. The cumulative effect will be tiring and you should mentally prepare for a week of sleeping in a tent and living outdoors.

A training programme should include regular hill walking with a small pack of around 10 kgs, or regular visits to the gym for the final two months before departure. Work on strengthening calf and thigh muscles and exercise your cardio-vascular stamina on a step machine or cross trainer, but don't approach it as if you are training for a marathon, and remember it can be dangerous to over train. It's quite a strenuous challenge to climb the mountain and you will be outdoors all of the time, so this will be an expedition designed to build your skills physically and mentally.  

The secret of climbing Mt Kilimanjaro is to go slowly and drink well, eat well and sleep well. A regular, consistent and slow pace will ensure the proper acclimatisation. Statistically the biggest proportion of failure occurs with young, fit males who go too fast and ignore the simple rules. It’s not a race or a competition!

Operate on the principle that if you look after yourself well during the first five days, then the sixth 'summit day’ will be a big challenge but not dangerous. We cannot condone the people who push themselves beyond the bounds of safety and wear the badge of hardship as a medal of honour, perpetuating the image that getting to the summit has an element of masochism to it! “This is just an example of bad mountaineering”, says Director Gavin Bate, “We want people to be clear-headed on the summit, with the strength to come all the way back down again! Drink lots of liquid, eat every meal and go slowly all the way – this is the mantra that my staff will say to you over and over again”.

Type of Terrain

The terrain on Kilimanjaro varies throughout; in a period of seven days, traversing the mountain over 70km, ascending from 2000m to 5895m and back down, you will pass through cultivated farmland, equatorial forest and alpine heath, across a lunar-like volcanic desert and up to a glaciated summit. Climbing Kilimanjaro is not a technical climb and there are no precipitous drops along the way, no rock climbing or specialist equipment needed.

The paths are in good condition and well trodden; some are steeper than others (in particular the Great Barranco Wall is an exciting scramble) and you will most likely meet people all along the way. On summit day the path is mostly screed, which can be loose and unrelenting, especially on the descent when your knees will probably suffer.

Camps used

Machame and Millennium Camps are on the tree line and have a number of campsites set in small clearings in the forest. You will see a central ranger station and a number of drop-hole latrines. Mobile coverage here and it is quite easy to descend back to the gate if necessary.

Shira Plateau Camp is on the vast Shira plateau (earths highest plateau) which is a volcanic spill-off from the last explosion some 100,000 years ago. Open and exposed and often dusty with smaller, more fragile plants amongst the rocks. Latrines and Ranger huts are around and the area is so huge it is easy to have some privacy. 

Barranco Camp is in a big clearing at the head of the steep valley which drops down into the Umbwe route, with dramatic cliffs around and right below the ice fields of Kibo, a stunning location for a camp.

Karanga Camp is a very open camp on the side of a hillside with great views of the summit massif and the expanse of land beyond the mountain. Many people go direct from Barranco to Barafu, so Karanga is traditionally a bit of half-way stop, but there are still latrines and a Ranger hut here.

Barafu, meaning ‘ice’, is now no longer covered in permanent snow but it is cold and rocky and exposed. People definitely feel the altitude here and you can expect snow and sometimes high wind. The camp sites are dotted amongst nooks and crannies in the rocks, perched on a sort of ridge.

Experience needed 

Climbing Kilimanjaro is a non-technical trek but it does offer a full mountaineering experience. Experience in hill walking is a benefit but not absolutely necessary, since this is a supported climb. You will have however be outdoors constantly and living in tents so any sort of experience with camping will be useful.

It is not necessary to have any experience of high altitude to climb Kilimanjaro, and there is nowhere in the United Kingdom or Ireland to possibly train for it unless you go to an altitude centre. The important factor will be to go slowly and allow your metabolism to adapt to the lower air pressure and the thinner air.

Support provided

The staff will carry your main bag up to a maximum weight of 15 kgs plus all the tents, kitchen equipment, food, fuel, tables and chairs. They will cater for all the group needs, providing excellent meals and putting up the tents. The guides will also brief you daily on the climb.

Castro Capelo is our operations manager in Moshi and Director of Adventure Alternative Tanzania. He organises all the staff, equipment, permits and hotel arrangements. You will have his telephone number, or the staff at the hotel desk can call him for you. He is organiser, translator, problem-solver, advisor and the main link between you and the UK office. He talks to the guides every day on the mountain and can make arrangements while you are up high.

You also have continued support from the main office in Northern Ireland. Should a problem arise of significant proportion then you only need to call us.
