Conquer Kilimanjaro

Bianca Angeluccci, the 39=year-old owner of Travel Tanzania Tours, and Abraham le Roux, a 54-year-old clinical psychologist, together form the foundations of Conquer Kilimanjaro. This expedition is an unusual blend of the physical challenge of climbing Mount Kilimanjaro with the psychological element of taking a self-actualisation journey.

“We saw a great opportunity to combine climbing Kilimanjaro with a self-actualisation journey because when you undertake such an adventure you are already prepared to physically and mentally push yourself to limits you’ve not reached before,” says Angelucci. “With us adding the extra aspect of specialised talks and discussions to promote personal development, it will turn this adventure into a life-changing experience.

Angelucci has been working with the Tanzanian travel industry for more than a decade, arranging Kilimanjaro expeditions and safaris, and will personally oversee all the bookings and on-the-ground arrangements. The package the duo has put together includes airport transfers, hotel accommodation, guide teams and park fees. Le Roux has been in private practice for more than 25 years with a keen interest in Jungian analytics and the implications of quantum physics in the field of psychology.

“Both le Roux and I are very passionate about what we do and what we offer our clients,” says Angelucci. “We truly believe in this product and that it is a great way to help people on their path to self-enlightenment.”

The trekkers will follow the eight-day Northern Circuit Lemosho route that was specifically chosen to make maximum use of the available topography with regards to acclimatisation and preparation to tackle the summit. It has the gentlest approach to the high camp before the summit and has lower numbers of climbers when compared with the other routes. In the evenings, the trekkers will enjoy short talks on a variety of psychological and mindful topics followed by group discussions and reflection on the experience of the climb.

“The talks will include our search for purpose and how to find your personal purpose and manifest it in your life,” concludes le Roux. “They will also cover mindfulness and research into neuroscience and how it helps us achieve emotional balance. We offer an ideal opportunity for personal growth while on an extraordinary adventure.”

PW Botha wagged his finger and banned us in 1988 but we stood firm. We built a reputation for fearless journalism, then, and now. Through these last 35 years, the Mail & Guardian has always been on the right side of history.

These days, we are on the trail of the merry band of corporates and politicians robbing South Africa of its own potential.
