Be Extraordinary

Take part in this incredible challenge - to climb Kilimanjaro, the highest freestanding mountain in the world. You will trek through five different eco-systems, and watch the sun rise over the African plains from the highest point on the continent (5895m or 19,310 ft). With a total of seven days trekking and an epic 'Summit Night' this is a tough challenge, but also an achievable and enjoyable one.

You will be supporting BecomingX, a charity focused on creating a world where everyone can realise their full potential, no matter what their starting point in life.

In addition to this once in a lifetime climb of Kilimanjaro, participants will also benefit from a unique personal development opportunity. Led by BecomingX founder Paul Gurney, and expedition leader Gavin Bate (a ‘seven summiteer’, including 6 ascents of Everest), we will focus on how to push your personal boundaries and build critical skills such as resilience, leadership and team work under pressure.

We have multiple expeditions - please see the BecomingX Kilimanjaro page for forthcoming dates.
