Towering over the sandy plains of Tanzania stands Mount Kilimanjaro - the world's tallest free-standing mountain. This breathtaking trek will guide you up the tranquil Machame route where you will trek through deep forest, home to spectacular wildlife, stretching up to moorland and onwards towards glaciers before reaching the Uhuru Peak.
This promises to be a truly challenging and unforgettable experience. We invite you to take up the challenge and raise valuable funds for BCRT during Bone Cancer Awareness Week 2013.
