Rick Ross Reveals Plans To Climb Mount Kilimanjaro: ‘I Gave Myself A Challenge’


Rick Ross is setting big goals for himself. During a recent appeearance on the Full Send Podcast, Rozay revealed he has his eyes set on climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa.

“I really believe when I put my heart to something, I can do anything,” he began. “As a matter of fact, I was smoking, I was on my back patio last night, I’m sitting underneath the trees, I’m listening to the waterfall, I’m looking at the plants, the landscaping, the patio furniture, you know? And I gave myself a challenge and I’m actually issuing you guys a challenge here.

“This is the first time I’ve said this, but in 2024, I’ma hike to the top of Kilimanjaro. Just making it to the top, and you going with me.”

Rick Ross admitted he hasn’t looked too much into it yet, but he’s determined to complete the climb.

“I’m the boss, I don’t look into nothing,” he said. “I make my mind up, it’s not really that big. I just gotta get it done. And what you gotta realize, if you notice I said 2024. So for the rest of this year, I’m getting prepared mentally, next year I get prepared physically.”

When asked how long it takes to get to the top, he replied, “Who knows? I’m guessing five/10 days, some shit like that. Give me 12 days, no rush. That’s what we doing. I’m not sure [about the elevation], I would wanna guess maybe 5000 [metres] or some type of shit.”

He also joked that he’s not going on his own because someone needs to carry his Wingstop food.

Located in Tanzania, Mount Kilimanjaro stands at around 5,895 metres (19,341 ft) and serves as the highest mountain in Africa, while also being the world’s highest single free-standing mountain above sea level.
