A Qatari family of six set out to climb Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania…Africa’s highest mountain.

Led by local guides and porters, the family spends 8 days trekking the famous Lemosho Route experiencing typical mountain climbing life…shortness of breath in the high altitude, sleeping under the stars, relishing the local cuisine, enduring freezing night-time temperatures, witnessing the mountains hauntingly beautiful scenery…all as they strive to reach the Roof of Africa at a height of 5,895 meters.

The higher they climb the more difficult the journey becomes.

This physically and mentally exhausting trek pushes each family member to the brink. The family’s mission is to build and strengthen the bond between one another by taking on challenges together.

Climbing the tallest mountain on the Continent together is their biggest family challenge to date. Find out who reaches the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro.
