mt kilimanjaroDay 1: Nairobi-Moshi

Arrive Namanga border town at 1000hrs continue to Arusha for lunch after immigration formalities drive to Moshi where the afternoon is spent organizing climbing gear. Dinner and overnight at the hotel in Arusha or Moshi.

Day 2: Moshi-Maranda

After having your breakfast we will make a short journey from your hotel in Marangu to National Park gate for the necessary formalities at the gate. We start the climbs through fascinating tropical rain forest; we reach the first hut at Mandara for dinner and overnight on Kilimanjaro. An alternative is to simply rest and relax the beautiful forest around the camp.

Marangu Gate to Mandara Hut (2,700 m).

Day 3: Mandara-Horono

Predawn walk for ten hours walk towards Horombo. The landscape becomes more rugged and rocky but superb, both Mawezi and kibo peaks in view. We arrive at Horombo Hut mid-afternoon, where you can relax and enjoy the stunning scenery around the camp.

Day 4: Horombo-kibo Hut

After breakfast continue your ascent into the Alpine desert, passes the last water point at 13550 ft/4130m. The summit is now a further 3921ft /1195m up. Go for all meals dinner and overnight at the hut and try to get as much rest and sleep as possible.

Day 5: kibo-Uhuru peak-Horombo

Habitat: Stone screed and ice-capped summit around 2330hrs, you will wake up and after some tea and biscuits you shuffle off into the night, and this is where the going really gets tough. The first section of the trail consists of a rocky path to the Hans Meyer point (17225ft/5250m), also a good resting spot. The path then zigzags up to Gillman’s point (18639ft/5 681m), which is located on the crater rim. This section is very steep with a lot of stone screed, requiring a great physical and mental effort.
From Gillman’s Point you will normally come across snow all the way up to Uhuru peak (19341ft/5895m), the highest point in Africa. Weather conditions on the summit will determine how long you will be able to spend, taking photographs before the 3 hours descent back to Kibo hut. After a short rest you gather all your gear you left behind for the ascent and head down to Horombo hut (3 hours) for your overnight.

Day 6: Horombo- moshi
