A once in a lifetime chance to trek to Kilimanjaro to support the ISPCA.
Why Trek to Kilimanjaro?
To reach the summit of Kilimanjaro, the largest free standing mountain in the world, is a once in a lifetime achievement. Enjoy the challenge of this trek surrounded by Kilimanjaro’s breath taking scenery.
Why Trek For the ISPCA?
The Irish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is Ireland national Animal Welfare Charity. Through education, advocacy and raising awareness of animal welfare issues we work to prevent cruelty to animals.
The ISPCA’s six Inspectors rescue animals that have been abused, neglected or abandoned and they are rehabilitated and responsibly rehomed from our animal centres in Longford and Cork
The ISPCA have teamed up with Earths Edge to bring you this event. The Machame route, described as the most scenic route, has been chosen for this Trek starting through scrub lands and lush forest continuing through beautiful flowering alpine tundra eventually reaching snow and rock over 4500m above sea level. This trek is suitable for people with a high fitness level and for those who enjoy a challenge. For more information read our Kilimanjaro Brochure.
The trip includes an 11 day Itinerary with a seven day trek with an average of six hours of walking per day, except for the summit which involves approximately 15 hours of walking. Although this is not a technical climb, it is very steep in places and you will be gaining height very quickly. We recommend a high fitness level and good preparation.
The Fundraising target for this event is €4,800. The ISPCA team have provided fundraising tips in the brochure and will provide support to help you achieve your goal.
