On the 6th of September 2017 The Askari Project's fundraising trek reached the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania - Africa.

 

Mount Kilimanjaro is the tallest free standing mountain in the world and the summit at 5895 metres above sea level is the highest point on the African continent.

The trek up took 5 days to reach an altitude of 4750m and then a last exhausting push on a steep trail which lasted 9 long hours in freezing conditions to reach the roof of Africa - Uhuru summit at 5895m.

The aim of this trek was to raise funding for elephant conservation, specifically the monitoring and protection of some of the last great Tuskers of Africa through the aerial and ground work & operations of our conservation partner - The Tsavo Trust.

Through the efforts of our committed and dedicated group we raised a total of USD$12,007 for this cause.

If you are passionate about elephants and their conservation please continue to follow and support The Askari Project and our fundraising initiatives to raise funding for the continued monitoring and protection of elephants in Tsavo-Kenya.

 

The Askari Project would like to sincerely thank the below people for the effort and hard work in participating in our tour, reaching the summit and for their work in attempting to raise as many donations as possible.
