Organised training climbs with Kilimanjaro Achievers 2013

Ok people! Its time to get up and moving!

We have lined up a few dates and mountains for you all to climb this season in preparation for your adventures to Africa this year.

Each mountain is being guided and you must contact them to book yourself onto the designated climb, if the dates we are putting out there don’t work for you that’s not a problem you can contact our guides directly and come to some sort of plan with them, but please make sure you do as many of these as you can. Not only is it a really important part of your training and preparation, it’s a great way to meet others in your group or just like minded folk on the same kind of journey as you.

Most of these trips will work out at around €15-€20.00 per person depending on numbers on the climb, and you will pay on the day of the climb. So make contact with the lads and get yourself booked onto some or even better all of these.
I hope to see some of you on one or two of the Brandon ones if I can swing it at all.
Remember the more you do now the easier it will be on the mountain in Africa! But most of all remember to enjoy and respect these mountains, each one is an achievement so don’t underestimate that.
