The Kilimanjaro Double

Project Overview

We will be taking the Lemosho route up Kilimanjaro . The Lemosho route is one of the best for acclimatisation. The route is less used and is a beautiful way up to the Shira Plateau and from there to the Stella Point at an altitude of 5895m (19,304ft) . Avoiding altitude sickness is the challenge and as we near the peak our bodies will need to cope with having 50% less oxygen than we are used to. Just 48 hours after we finish climbing Kilimanjaro we will start our cycling challenge. This will take us from Kilimanjaro to Tanzania’s coast along 430km of dirt track, mountain roads and travelling across grassland, we expect this to be a particularly challenging ride. There will be some tough climbs leading to extraordinary vistas, with jagged cliffs, swooping valleys and a patchwork of lush grassland. David and Gary, two of our Trustees, expect that the endorphins and a heart-warming sense of achievement will more than make up for the aching legs when they take part in this challenge.
