  • Day 5 - Karanga Camp to Barafu - Summit Eve

    Jul 03, 2014
    Today was another short and slow walking day - but definitely a tough one! The team hiked from Karanga Camp to Barafu Base Camp through alpine desert. They have now completed the southern circuit of Mt. Kilimanjaro and will camp with views of Mawenzi and Kibo peaks.
  • Day 4 - Barranco Camp to Karanga Camp

    It’s known as the ‘breakfast’ wall by local porters and guides. The reason is quite simple. Straight after eating breakfast, the great Barranco Wall is your immediate call, just a short few steps before you attempt the fun scramble of the breach wall!

  • Hikers Getting Ready to Summit to See the END

    Jun 24, 2014
    As my colleagues and the other hikers get ready to head to Tanzania this week for Summit to See the END, I am struck by the personal commitment they have all made to this journey.

Trek to one of the world’s greatest peaks. Stand on the roof of Africa. Help end the suffering of millions of people with neglected diseases.

As one of the world’s great seven peaks, Mount Kilimanjaro has long been a goal for adventurers worldwide. The challenge of reaching the 19,314 ft (5,985 m) summit and the exhilaration of standing on the roof of Africa are unparalleled. 

Now, you have the opportunity to embark on this transformational adventure of a lifetime, while simultaneously helping to end the suffering of millions of people with neglected tropical diseases.

Summit to See the END
will engage dedicated visionaries, humanitarians, and business entrepreneurs to join the hike of a lifetime, while simultaneously raising awareness and funds to treat Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs). NTDs are a group of parasitic and bacterial infections that cause long-term disability and illness for over 1.5 billion of the poorest and most vulnerable people across the globe. These diseases can be treated by available, donated medicines. Funds are needed for the delivery of these medicines to people in need.

Summit to See the END is being organized by
Private Expeditions who are high altitude trekking experts.
