DAY O – Arrival – Kilimanjaro

You will be picked up at Kilimanjaro Airport in Tanzania by our transfer driver and taken to the White House in Moshi. The rest of the day will be free.

Relax at the pool or explore the small town of Moshi.

There will be a pre-departure briefing on what can be expected over the next days and a gear check at the hotel before tour start.

You’ll dine at the lodge and get a necessary good night’s sleep.

Day 1:Londorossi Gate to Mti Mkubwa

We depart Moshi for Londorossi Gate, which takes about 4 hours, where you will complete entry formalities. Then drive to the Lemosho trailhead.

Upon arrival at trailhead, we begin hiking through undisturbed forest which winds to the first camp site.

Days 2: Mti Mkubwa to Shira 1 Camp

We continue on the trail leading out of the rain forest and into a savannah of tall grasses, heather and volcanic rock draped with lichen beards.

As we ascend through the lush rolling hills and cross several streams, we reach the Shira Ridge before dropping gently down to Shira 1 Camp.

Here we catch our first glimpse of Kibo across the plateau.

Days 3: Shira Camp 2 (3900 m)

You will gain 700m in altitude but descend to sleep at Barranco – 60 m higher than last night’s camp.

This will help with acclimatization as you will go up to 4600 m before descending again.

Today begins with a long uphill in the direction of the Lava Tower Hut (4640m) and you will notice how the landscape changes to a rocky alpine desert.

Later, the path descends again to the Barranco Valley with its giant Senecias and Lobelias.

After six to seven hours you should arrive at the most beautiful camp on the mountain – the Barranco

Days 4: Barranco Camp (3960 m)

Today will start with the daunting Barranco Wall. Soon you will realize it looks worse than it actually is, but there are tricky sections where you will need to hold on tight.

Admire the views from the top.

The rest of the route follows along the mountain ridge into the Karanga valley and out.

You reach Karanga Camp after lunch and you will have fantastic views of the southern glacier of Kibo as well as of the Kibo summit.

Days 5: Karanga Camp (4035 m)

A few hours hiking through desolate and rocky moon-like landscape lies ahead.

It will be a relatively easy day leading steadily uphill. The goal for today is the Barafu campsite on a narrow ridge in full view of Mawenzi peak.

You will walk along a trail that passes through the afro-alpine dessert until you reach your destination for today –Barafu Camp at 4640 m.

Use the rest of the day to relax and pack your daypack for tonight’s summit attempt.

Supper will be served early; drink and eat enough if you can and try to sleep.

You will be woken up around midnight to start your walk to the summit.

Days 6: Barafu Camp (4640 m)

It is dark and cold as you set off just after midnight.

You will climb the frozen volcanic dust by headlamp going towards Stella Point on the crater rim – about six hours. The sun should be rising when you arrive here.

Just an hour or two more and you will be standing on the highest point of the crater: Uhuru peak.

On top of the world! Take a short break for pictures and celebratory hugs before you tackle the steep and dusty descent. By now the volcanic ash will have thawed…

You will stop for a short tea break at Barafu and then continue downhill for about three hours to Mweka camp (3080 m).

This is your overnight stop. Refuel by drinking lots of fluids and have a good helping at supper time.

Days 7: Mweka Camp (3080 m)

A traditional farewell ceremony from the porters begins the day.

After about three hours of comfortably descending through the greenness of the forest, you should reach Mweka gate where the driver will be waiting.

Back at the lodge, a hot shower, cold drinks, a debrief and your certificate of achievement are waiting.

Well done!
