Kilimanjaro Stage Run Among Nat Geo’s Great Adventures




National Geographic Adventure named the Kilimanjaro Stage Run in Tanzania among it’s 10 Great Adventures that Trips That Give back.

The article says:

“One local guide and ultrarunner, Simon Mtuy, came up with an alternative trip that is arguably even more of a challenge than tagging the summit: a new eight-day stage run around Kilimanjaro. The founder of Summit Expeditions and Nomadic Experience, Mtuy’s idea is to bring travelers deep into the countryside and to seldom visited villages, reducing the impact on the summit routes and bringing income to more communities through runners’ fees.

Travelers spend a day planting native trees as part of a reforestation project before running 162 miles in eight days, trotting through monkey-studded forests, savannahs dotted with elephants and zebras, and coffee farms. Come evening, tuckered-out runners camp and refuel in remote villages under the looming shadow of the continent’s highest peak.”
