December 24th, 2016 I attended Alan’s L4 REC course and was thoroughly happy with the course. As well as refreshing the basics in first aid the course explores illness and importantly for us altitude sickness. As outdoor business owners the information regarding British Standards was also very helpful and gave us insight as to how to improve the integrity of our business. Handouts and supporting material were excellent and I loved receiving a free book on wilderness medicine. I can totally recommend Alan and the courses he delivers and will be back in future for additional training. Thanks Alan SIMON OGUNLANA – MD at MOUNTAINEERINRead More →

July 5th-14th, 2017: An opportunity to climb one of the most impressive mountains in the world with Alan Ward, a highly experienced and qualified International Mountain Leader (IML). This stunning trek takes you through a wide variety of terrains as you ascend the mountain. Starting in lush tropical rainforest, the climb gently takes you upwards through heath and moorland, further up into alpine desert, and finally to the summit zone. On reaching Uhuru Peak, at 5,950 metres, the successful climber has the satisfaction of looking down on a vast sea of clouds and distant mountain peaks. A true achievement.
