About Kilimanjaro

Kilimanjaro (5896m) is not only Africa’s highest point, but it’s also the highest free-standing mountain in the world. Kilimanjaro is a huge crater known as Kibo over 2km wide with several distinct cones, the highest being Uhuru Peak. This 12-day itinerary includes seven days of walking on the Machame trail, the most scenic route to the summit. The Kilimanjaro climb incorporates seven days on the mountain which allows for great acclimatisation and maximises chances of a successful summit attempt. The route provides spectacular scenery and a wide variety of different landscapes. We start in scrublands thick with African wildlife and then move into lush forests followed by flowering alpine tundra. Above 4,500m the landscape changes to snow and rock as we approach the summit. This trek is suitable for people with a good level of fitness who enjoy a challenge. The sense of achievement after climbing Kilimanjaro and view from the roof of Africa makes all the hard work and effort well worth it!

About Brian’s Kilimanjaro Climb

There are a number of added extra’s Brian is doing on his climb. They are all optional, but we would love you to partake in them all.

  • Training Day and Weekend: Brian will be hosting two pre-departure training events.  One day in Connemara and a weekend event in Wicklow. You will also meet an expedition leader, expedition doctor and your fellow adventurers! On the training weekend an experienced expedition leader will be giving a full expedition brief, leading two training hikes and offering expert advice on all aspects of the expedition including training, equipment, weather etc. You will need to register for the events once you have booked your place via the Earth’s Edge booking portal. Training days are included within the price of the trip, food and accommodation required for the training events are not included.
  • Kilimanjaro Training Programme: Four months prior to departure Brian is going to send everyone his BKF Online Program which is ideal training for Kilimanjaro. The programme will be designed based on all of Brian’s endurance and fitness experience combined.
  • Team Facebook Group: Brian would like to invite you to a private group where you can meet each other, share pics, share advice and get excited about this trip of a lifetime.
  • Equipment for the Porters: We are asking you to bring any second-hand clothing that you no longer need for the hard-working porters that will help us climb Kilimanjaro. For more information about the porters and the items we are trying to collect please request an information pack.
  • Tree planting: We are planting three native trees on your behalf in December 2021 in an effort to reduce your carbon footprint. If you would like to plant more, please contact info@earths-edge.com. Each extra tree costs €1.
  • Mountain Cleanup: We are bringing three litter pickers on the mountain with us. While walking you will have the option to help us gather rubbish which we will dispose of responsibly after the climb.

When signing up for the adventure you agree to share your contact information with both Earth’s Edge and Brian Keane so that you can be sent appropriate information about the trip and be invited to participate in the above activities.

What Our Clients Say

The smartest decision I've made to date was to complete the Kilimanjaro expedition with Earth's Edge. The companies ethos is something which I can honestly say is actually reflected in their practice. The expedition leader, doctor and local guides all made the experience an incredible journey. I would recommend the Kili trip and Earth's Edge to anyone.

Clare Reville. Ireland

Climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro was my first expedition with Earth's Edge, and what an adventure it was. It encompassed every emotion I can think of, from complete mental and physical exhaustion on the final ascent to the summit to the elation of standing at 5,986m! The whole trip was so well organised, John the expedition leader was incredible and all the local porters and guides were amazing, with never ending smiles and enthusiasm. I will definitely be back for another adventure...thank you!

Elizabeth Newton-Smith. Co. Clare, Ireland.

 

Earth's Edge was amazing to work with, they organised everything for the trip and were very helpful in preparing for the trip itself. The staff we were with on Kilimanjaro were second to none, Martina & Gracjan were both extremely helpful and supportive and the Guides and Porters played a huge part in getting us to the top. I could not recommend Earth's Edge more...Highly recommend booking them for any trekking adventure.

Aoife Ryan. Naas, Kildare
