Stop Rhino Poaching Now!

🦏 We Urgently Need Your Help!

Donate Now! πŸ¦

It is estimated that since the turn of the previous century, the world has lost more than 99% of its rhino population, and that today, only 29,000 of these majestic creatures survive.

With China lifting the ban on imports in 2018 and the price of rhino horn valued in the Far East at around USD 130,000 per kg - more than double the price of gold and infinitely easier and cheaper to obtain - poaching is now rife and threatens the very survival of our rhino.

Team Kilimanjaro have been asked to serve as one of the 36 Conservation Ambassadors joining the Rhino Peak Challenge on 6th November 2021 in the Drakensberg, South Africa, and to reach out to our fellow climbers and nature lovers. 

I know personally, and indeed train with, some of the courageous and honourable people directly involved in conservation and anti-poaching efforts. You may be absolutely assured that every Rand, Pound or Dollar you donate to this truly excellent cause will be incredibly effectively spent.
John Rees-Evans, Team Kilimanjaro

The situation is truly desperate. We urgently need your help to fund the conservation and anti-poaching efforts and reverse the current trend towards extinction. Nearly every day a rhino is callously and criminally slaughtered in Africa. This is totally preventable. TK wants to see this number brought down to zero.

Please give whatever you can to help this extremely valuable initiative and play your part in saving the lives of one of the rarest and most beautiful, magnificent and peaceful, large game animals left in existence.

Please Donate Now to Save Our Rhinos πŸ¦

The conservation work is based in South Africa, so donations will be charged in Rands and converted by your card issuer.

Wilderness first aid is the knowledge and ability to effectively address injuries, illnesses, or emergencies outside of modern facilities, out in the wild. Skills include knowing how to dress a wound, treat a burn or bite, or set an injured limb. These are important skills that can save your life or the lives of other outdoor enthusiasts. Learn more and be better prepared for your next hiking or backpacking adventure.

Many people spend a lot of time and money training and equipping themselves for a Kilimanjaro climb, only to fail in their objective of reaching the summit. Failure is avoidable and we really want trekkers to understand how to prevent it.

As from March 2021, PCR testing (or rather, sample-taking) is now available at Seronera and Ndutu airstrips in the Serengeti. This facility has been implemented to prevent clients having to either curtail their safaris or dissect their safaris with a journey to Arusha or, more recently, Karatu (FAME Hospital), mid-safari - so as to satisfy the "less than 72 hours old" validity rule that most airlines are required to enforce.

How Much Does It Cost to Climb Kilimanjaro?
Wednesday, February 19th 2020

I think the question of how much it costs to climb Kilimanjaro is a little like asking, how much it costs to buy 'a car'! Apart from the obvious question of how many people you want the car to carry and whether you want it to have offroad capability, there are more subtle considerations.

Kilimanjaro has been climbed from the park gates to the summit in a little over just 5 hours, and yet the Royal Geographical Society suggests that trekkers should not spend less than 10 days reaching the summit? So, how long does it usually take and what is safe?
