In partnership with WaterAid, Choose a Challenge offers 20 explorers from Ramapo College of New jersey the chance to summit Mount Kilimanjaro. It is one of the seven natural wonders of the world and for many people, standing on its summit is a lifelong ambition. The snow-capped peak was first reached by German explorers in the late 19th Century and you will follow in their footsteps as you attempt to scale this mighty mountain! The world’s highest free-standing peak and tallest volcano, Mt. Kilimanjaro, rises alone from the surrounding savannah. Situated in Tanzania, this challenge is an amazing opportunity to not only climb Mt. Kilimanjaro, but also to explore East Africa and learn about its rich culture and diverse landscapes.
But how does this work?
Here at Choose a Challenge, we have a wholly unique model which combines the best of adventure travel with the opportunity to do an amazing thing for others. 50% of your minimum fundraising target will go towards the cost of your adventure and the other 50%+ will go towards the incredible work of WaterAid. As such our trips cost you very little.
