VEGAN KILIMANJARO – Plant-based Nutrition Challenge!

Wanted: 6-12 Vegan Adventurers!

On March 1, 2018, a daring group of dedicated vegans plan to summit Mt. Kilimanjaro on the first all-vegan trek to Africa’s highest peak!

Besides fulfilling personal goals, these intrepid adventurers will demonstrate to the world the heights of achievement possible on a healthy, life-enhancing, plant-based diet.

The capstone of the trek will be the unfurling of a banner at the foot of the famous Uhuru Peak summit sign promoting the life-saving mission of PCRM’s Barnard Medical Center www.pcrm.org/barnard-medical-center.

The trek idea originated with San Diegan Mike Weinberg who wanted to challenge himself in his 65th year (21 as a vegan).

Concerned with cross-contamination and uncomfortable dining around others eating animal products, he arranged with a very reputable guide company, www.ultimatekilimanjaro.com, to provide a 100% vegan mess tent with all new eating utensils and cooking gear along with segregated food storage.

So far, with 5 participants from 3 states (California, Texas, Florida), they’ve locked in the climb dates (Feb 25 – Mar 2, 2018) and are seeking up to 7 more adventurers from around the world.

If you are interested in joining the climb team, please email mike.weinberg1952@gmail.com for costs and logistics.

If you’d like to offer advice or encouragement or vicariously follow the team’s preparation and progress, like & follow www.facebook.com/vegankili.


  • Way to go! best of luck to all the adventurers 😀

  • Initially, I was seeking 6-12 very fit vegans to join me on this quest, but we currently have 16 climbers, and Ultimate Kilimanjaro has hosted charity climbs for 30, so I’m being optimistic and shooting for that. Our international team now includes participants from Canada, Norway, Belarus, and South Africa. Email me at mike.weinberg1952@gmail.com if you’d like to join us!
