Travel with a Purpose

Service-based adventures change lives.

Memories are made with each summit of Africa's tallest peak, Mount Kilimanjaro. For travelers with K2 Adventure Travel, memories also are made at an orphanage in a small village at the base of the mountain in Tanzania. It is here where Kevin Cherilla and Kristen Salcito-Sandquist found inspiration to start K2 Adventure Travel and K2 Adventures Foundation, and here where travelers understand what it really means to live in the region.
