Cardiff University Kilimanjaro
This is the page for the Cardiff team climbing Kilimanjaro in order to raise money for Wateraid, with Really Wild Challenges.
Wateraid are an international NGO, whose mission is to transform lives by improving access to safe water, hygiene and sanitation in the world’s poorest communities. Just £15 can enable one person to access a lasting supply of safe water, improved hygiene and sanitation.
We will be attempting the mammoth challenge of climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in September, so every donation counts!
Mount Kilimanjaro is one of the most impressive sights in Africa and climbing it is one of the all time great achievements. Rising majestically from the Savannah lands of northern Tanzania, Kilimanjaro soars to a chilling 5,895m high peak (well above the cloud line). It’s the highest mountain in Africa and the largest free-standing mountain in the world. The feeling you get as you climb Kilimanjaro and watch the sun rise over the vast African plains is truly an incredible experience. Kilimanjaro’s location on an open plain close to the Indian Ocean and its great size and height strongly influence the climate, vegetation, animal life and the climbing conditions. It also creates its own weather system affecting the surrounding rainfall pattern, which means that hiking Kilimanjaro requires immense stamina, persistence and a waterproof resilience. We have taken over 4000 people (and counting) book their Kilimanjaro charity trek through our company. Our treks are fully inclusive and use only the best guides and equipment on the mountain. If you would like to climb Kilimanjaro for charity, then you have come to the right place!
