What does it cost?
The estimated cost for Mount Kenya climbs is £800 per person (based on a group of six), which includes:
- Private transport by safari van for the entire trip

- Meals as indicated above
- Service of experienced mountain guide, porters and cooks for the climb
- Mt Kenya rescue fees
- All accommodation Flights will be separate – the average cost of flights from the UK to Nairobi are £500
We give all our climbers and volunteers an ambitious, but realistic, target of £1,000. 100% of this fundraising goes directly to our projects in Kenya. If you are a real whizz at fundraising, you can fundraise money to contribute to your personal costs for the trip, as long as the charity gets the £1,000 donation.
Our team will be on hand to support you every step of the way and we are confident that you will be able to smash your target!
