August 3rd - 12th Africa Yoga Project dreams of creating programs that open new adventures of possibility for each and every person on this planet, and this summer we are opening a brand new door, Seva Safari Kilimanjaro: Expand Your Vision.

This 10 day journey will draw you into the world of international service and land you at the top of Africa’s highest peak. Kilimanjaro at over 19,000 feet above sea level is the world’s highest freestanding mountain and patiently awaiting your steady footsteps.

This world class adventure will be co-led by John Fortin, owner of Power Yoga Canada and triathlete enthusiast along with Billy Sadia, Director of Development for Africa Yoga Project. Each day will bring new challenges and new triumphs as you make your way to Uhuru Peak at 5,895 meters. At one point on your journey to the top, you will even get to learn a brand new dance commonly referred to as the Kili Shuffle.

Expand Your Vision on Kilimanjaro is a journey that will leave its mark on your soul. You will never forget standing on top of one of the worlds most amazing mountains, taking in a full 360 degree panorama of Tanzania’s countryside or the friendships built along the way. Come and climb with us to the top of Kilimanjaro to inspire a world to PLAY BIG!
