Aldo Kane Collection: A hand-selected range of adventures by our Brand Ambassador:“Trekking to the ‘roof of Africa’, Mount Kilimanjaro, is an experience you’ll never forget. The Lemosho route is one of the least trekked paths towards the summit, which allows you to take in the beautifully wild Shira Plateau. The sense of achievement you feel when you see the Uhuru Peak sign and know you’ve made it to the top of the highest mountain on the African continent is something else. It’s a truly special place and perfect for anyone who’s looking for a challenge.”

Trip of a Lifetime
This trip is well worth booking, challenging yet rewarding I am so pleased we chose to do this through Exodus. The food is great, it's hard to believe food to such a high standard is prepared in a tent.
