The Costs

Although there may be small changes to the cost,  depending on the number of people climbing and the exchange rate, the estimated costs for the trip are as follows:

Getting There (Flights): R 8 000.00

The Climb:                    R 27 000.00

Total:                             R 35 000.00

In addition, each climber will be required to raise a MINIMUM of R 5 000.00 each through fundraising, sponsorship or out of your own pocket towards the foundation. However the more you can raise the sooner we can put in a library at Qhobosheane Primary School. The foundation is happy to assist with fund raising initiatives.

In terms of clothing and equipment we will negotiate preferential rates with suppliers to reduce the cost to you.
