Outdoor Afro is built on a focused mission – to create and inspire Black connection and leadership in nature. We are thrilled to announce our first leader-only international expedition to Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. In June 2018, a specially selected team of Outdoor Afro leaders will ascend the highest freestanding mountain in the world, climbing 19,341 feet during the course of the expedition.
Climbing Kilimanjaro is not only a physical experience, but a cultural experience as well; not only will the team be exposed to a different culture, they will also bring a different culture. The environment itself will naturally inspire curiosity and learning as they will hike with local guides through multiple ecosystems during the trip. The trip is set up to be enjoyable and the challenge attainable.
