Why climb with Dig Deep?

Incredible Cause

This challenge is run by the award-winning water charity Dig Deep. Through fundraising for the challenge, you will transform the lives of thousands of people in East Africa - helping them realise their fundamental right to clean water.

Personal Growth

Throughout this journey, you will gain valuable skills and experience to enhance your CV. You will also make friends for life - many of Dig Deep’s Kilimanjaro groups are still having reunions over 10 years after climbing..

Ethical Value

We work directly with local, ethical, KPAP-certified suppliers to organise our climbs. This means that the local people making your challenge possible get a fair deal - and that our registration fee & fundraising target are the most achievable of any comparable challenge

Trip Dates and Duration

The trip is a minimum 10 day adventure including a 6 day trek of the Machame route and travel either side. You can choose to extend your stay at your leisure with optional travel time after the climb and our trusted local ground suppliers, African Scenic Safaris and Trek 2 Kili, organise some incredible value packages for you to choose from. See more here.
