Day 0: Kilimanjaro Airport – Arusha

Upon your arrival at Kilimanjaro Airport, you will be greeted by our transfer driver and taken to the Tulia hotel and Spa (https://www.tuliahotelandspa.com/)or similar in Arusha. The rest of the day will be at leisure and you may choose to relax at the hotel. Bed and Breakfast

Day 1: Arusha – Starting point Lemosho (2,385 m)– Big Tree Camp (2,780 m)

In the morning, you will be picked up at the Hotel and taken to the Londorossi Gate (2,250 m). Here you will be registered by the national park authorities. Then you will drive an approximate 15 km on a bumpy track that will take you into the dense rainforest to the drop-off point where your trek begins, you will be accompanied by an armed ranger during the first 2 days of your trek. Breakfast; Lunch; Dinner

Day 2: Big Tree Camp (2,780 m) – Shira Camp 2 (3,900 m)

 

Today’s long trek starts on a small trail that passes through the rainforest. As one climbs, the forest gradually thins out and the landscape changes into heath and moorland where plants like erica and lobelia start to dominate the landscape. You will cross the Shira Ridge and after 4 to 5 hours of trekking, you will reach the Shira Camp 1. The landscape will change again and you will pass giant synecious that can grow to almost 9 m in height. At Shira Camp 2, you will camp for the night and with a little luck, enjoy the wonderful view of the Kibo summit at sunset. Breakfast; Lunch; Dinner included

Day 3: Shira Camp 2 (3,900 m) – Lava Tower (4,640 m) – Barranco Camp (3,960 m)

 

Today you will climb approximately 700 m, but you will spend the night at an elevation only slightly higher than the previous night. This will allow your body to acclimatize, as a height of over 4,600 m will be reached before descending again. In doing so, you will be able to see how your body reacts to such an altitude. The trek begins with a long ascent above the Shira Plateau in the direction of the Lava Tower. Breakfast; Lunch; Dinner included

Day 4: Barranco Camp (3,960 m) – Karanga Camp (4,035 m)

Today’s trekking leg has many ascents and descents and shortly after the start, you will tackle the steepest part of the entire route – the Barranco Wall. Every now and then, you may need your hands to hold on as there are no climbing “paths”. After reaching the top of Barranco Wall, you will walk along the mountain ridge. From here you will have fantastic views of the southern glacier of Kibo as well as of the Kibo summit. Breakfast; Lunch; Dinner included

 

Day 5: Karanga Camp (4,035 m) – Barafu Camp (4,640 m)

After breakfast you will walk along a trail that passes through an alpine desert area until you reach the destination of today – the Barafu Camp. In the afternoon you can relax and stretch your legs in preparation of the upcoming summit night. You will have dinner early in order to catch a few hours’ sleep, before you will be woken up at around midnight. Breakfast; Lunch; Dinner included

Day6: Barafu Camp (4,640 m) – Uhuru Peak (5,895 m) – Mweka Camp (3,080 m)

After some hot tea and a light snack, the climb begins at around midnight. By torchlight you will start walking on the lava ash that is still frozen. After 5 to 7 hours you will arrive at Stella Point (5,730 m), the crater rim of Mt Kilimanjaro. Another 1 to 2 hours climb along the crater ridge will lead you to the summit of Uhuru Peak. Breakfast; Lunch; Dinner inclusive

Day 7: Mweka Camp (3,080 m) – Mweka Gate (1,630 m) – Arusha

The final leg of your amazing adventure begins after breakfast with a traditional farewell ceremony from the mountain crew.
