ETHICAL CLIMB

On every day of your 6 day trek along the Machame route your team will be supported by an incredible crew of expert guides, cooks and porters from our local KPAP approved climb suppliers.

EXTENSION TRAVEL

Your expert suppliers also organise some amazing value extension travel packages for you to add on to your trip so you can experience the 3 best things Tanzania has to offer; Kilimanjaro, Safari and Zanzibar.

TRIP COSTS

As we are a not for profit run by, and for, the charity Dig Deep, we don't pay the profits of UK middlemen and therefore our trips are the most affordable of any comparable challenge.

 

Your fundraising is split 50:50 between a charitable donation to Dig Deep, to help bring clean water to Kenya's poorest residents, and all your in-country costs associated with your challenge. It is completely your decision whether you wish to fundraise the whole amount, fundraise some and pay the remainder yourself or simply self-fund the whole amount. 

Either way we provide comprehensive fundraising support to all of our fundraisers to ensure you reach your target one way or another. You can check out our online fundraising resources here.
