Itinerary

  • Day 1 Arusha / Arrive

    Upon arrival into Kilimanjaro International Airport you are personally met and transferred to your well-appointed lodge in Arusha. There is a full briefing with the Climb Manager and your guide. Meet our special guest, Lesordo, a Maasai Warrior from Kenya. Overnight Ngare Sero Mountain Lodge Conservancy (Dinner)
  • Day 2 Kilimanjaro

    From Arusha we set out in vehicles to the starting point of the Lemosho trail. Here you meet the rest of your crew and set off at a leisurely pace into Afromontane forest. Lunch is taken on trail and camp is reached mid-afternoon. Overnight Forest Camp (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)
  • Day 3 Shira 1

    From the forested slopes of Lemosho you ascend through Podocarpus and Juniper forest and break out of the forest on to the Heath Zone and the Shira Plateau. Lunch is taken on trail and you arrive in camp mid-afternoon. Overnight Shira 1 Camp (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)
  • Day 4 Moir Hut

    Crossing the Shira Plateau can be one of the most scenic parts of the trip and the morning we hike for around 3-4 hours to the lunch point. After lunch we ascend to Moir camp, arriving in the mid-afternoon. For those with the energy a hike in the late afternoon is possible. Overnight Moir Camp (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)
  • Day 5 Barranco

    From Moir we traverse across the slopes of Kibo. Here relatively little flora or fauna can survive the extreme temperature ranges and conditions that typify this zone. Lunch is normally taken close to Lava Tower, before descending down to Barranco camp in the afternoon. Overnight Barranco Camp (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)

  • Day 6 Karanga

    You now have a relatively short day to Karanga Camp, after conquering the Barranco Wall. The selection of Karanga Camp is strategic – significant time at altitude is essential for safe acclimatization and in the late afternoon you arrive in camp. Sunsets here are particularly spectacular with views of the southern glacial valleys and ice fields towering 1000 meters (over 3000 feet) above you. Overnight Karanga Camp (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)
  • Day 7 Barafu

    Today is another half day ascending to Barafu Camp. Once again lunch is taken in camp allowing plenty of time to relax before the Summit bid. Desolate alpine desert and at times strong winds rip over this camp and yet in the evening splendid views of Mawenzi Peak are the norm. A relatively early dinner is taken before heading to rest for the evening. Overnight Barafu Camp (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)
  • Day 8 Summit / Mweka

    Most people depart just before midnight for the final summit bid. Patience and persistence is the name of game to reach the summit and by dawn as the first rays of light start to appear, most arrive near the rim. Ascending via Stella Point affords a relatively short final section to Uhuru peak, the Roof of Africa! What goes up must come down and your goal today is to reach Mweka camp before dusk. Overnight Mweka Camp (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)
  • Day 9 Out / Arusha

    After breakfast you descend once again through montane forest and around mid day after saying farewell to your crew, you are picked up and transferred back to your hotel for a well-deserved shower and celebratory dinner! Overnight Ngare Sero Mountain Lodge Conservancy (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)
  • Day 10 Arusha / Depart

    Today you have dayroom at the lodge and then you are transferred to Kilimanjaro International Airport for departures. Dayroom Ngare Sero Mountain Lodge Conservancy (Breakfast, Lunch)
