Itinerary

Day 1: Arusha - Kilimanjaro (2385m) - Big Tree Camp (2780m)

Stop At: Mount Kilimanjaro, Kilimanjaro National Park 00255 Tanzania
You will be picked up at your hotel at around 08:00am and transferred to the Lemosho gate located on the western side of Kilimanjaro. After the registration process you will still start our climb steadily through the forests of the Lemosho glades to reach Big Tree camp where you will be spending the night.
Duration: 4 hours

Accommodation included: Overnight at Big Tree Camp

Day 2: Big Tree Camp (2780m) - Shira 1 Camp (3500m)

Stop At: Mount Kilimanjaro, Kilimanjaro National Park 00255 Tanzania
Today you will trek across a plateau of grassy moorland and heather scattered with volcanic rock formations. Our destination for today is the Shira 1 Camp from where there are often views of Kibo Peak floating on the clouds. We gain a reasonable amount of altitude today and parts of the route are fairly steep.
Duration: 7 hours

Accommodation included: Overnight at Shira 1 Camp

Day 3: Shira 1 Camp (3500m) - Shira 2 Camp (3900m)

Stop At: Mount Kilimanjaro, Kilimanjaro National Park 00255 Tanzania
Today you will get the chance to view the Northern Ice fields from the western side of the mountain with some unusual views of Kibo. Our steady climb across the moorland of the Shira Plateau will help with acclimatization and we enjoy great panoramic views. Our destination today is the Shira 2 Camp. In the afternoon you will take an acclimatization walk then head back to camp for dinner and overnight.
Duration: 5 hours

Meals included:
• Breakfast
• Lunch
• Dinner
Accommodation included: Overnight at Shira 2 Camp

Day 4: Shira 2 Camp (3900m) - Barranco Camp (3960m)

Stop At: Mount Kilimanjaro, Kilimanjaro National Park 00255 Tanzania
Your trek starts with an ascent with far-reaching panoramic views, walking in to the climatic zone of the upland desert and on the lava ridges beneath the glaciers of the Western Breach. You will reach the distinct pinnacle of the Lava Tower (4640 m), our high point for the day and a great place to enjoy your lunch. In the afternoon we make a steep descent to our camp for the night, located in the base of the Great Barranco Valley (3960 m), sheltered by towering cliffs but with extensive views of the plains below.
Duration: 7 hours

Meals included:
• Breakfast
• Lunch
• Dinner
Accommodation included: Overnight at Barranco Camp

Day 5: Barranco Camp (3960m) - Karanga Camp (3963m)

Stop At: Mount Kilimanjaro, Kilimanjaro National Park 00255 Tanzania
Our day starts by descending into the start of the Great Barranco, a huge ravine. We then exit steeply, up the Great Barranco Wall, which divides us from the southeastern slopes of Kibo. It’s a climb over rock, not technical but long and tiring. Passing underneath the Heim and Kersten glaciers, we head towards the Karanga valley. From here we have a steep climb up from Karanga valley to our night’s camp at Karanga camp, set at 3963m. For those feeling strong we will go for a mid-afternoon acclimatization trek up to around 4200m before descending back to camp for the night.
Duration: 5 hours

Meals included:
• Breakfast
• Lunch
• Dinner
Accommodation included: Overnight at Karanga Camp

Day 6: Karanga Camp (3963) - Barafu Camp (4640m)

Stop At: Mount Kilimanjaro, Kilimanjaro National Park 00255 Tanzania
After a good night’s rest and breakfast, we set off on our walk to Barafu camp at 4640m. The climb will take us across desolate scree slopes with no vegetation around us at all. It’s a tough steep walk made more difficult by the altitude. On arriving at camp we eat and spend the afternoon resting as we prepare for a long night and day ahead. It is important to keep hydrated and warm. We have an early dinner and then try to get some sleep as we will be getting up at between 11pm and 12pm to start the climb to the summit.
Duration: 3 hours

Meals included:
• Breakfast
• Lunch
• Dinner
Accommodation included: Overnight at Barafu Camp

Day 7: Barafu Camp (4640m) - UHURU PEAK (5895m) & down to Millennium Camp (3790m)

Stop At: Mount Kilimanjaro, Kilimanjaro National Park 00255 Tanzania
We start off at around midnight, and walk steeply upwards to the summit glaciers. We will be climbing scree for 4 to 5 hours but gain incredible height over a short distance. The views are spectacular. We should be on the crater rim at Stella Point (5739m) as the first rays of the sun hit us. Spectacular ice cliffs within the crater surround us and the views to jagged Mawenzi peak and beyond are breathtaking. Another hour’s walking takes us to the summit, Uhuru Peak (5895m). We begin our descent by returning to Stella Point and then descending on scree slope and track back to Barafu Camp for breakfast, before finally heading down to Millennium Camp for a long well-earned rest.
Duration: 13 hours

Meals included:
• Breakfast
• Lunch
• Dinner
Accommodation included: Overnight at Millennium Camp

Day 8: Millennium Camp (3790m) - Mweka Gate (1630m)

Stop At: Mount Kilimanjaro, Kilimanjaro National Park 00255 Tanzania
A gentle trek takes us down through the rainforest to Mweka Gate, where we complete park formalities and receive certificates, which you can hang up with pride! We are then met by our vehicles and return to the hotel in Arusha, where you can treat yourself to a welcome shower and big celebration.
Duration: 6 hours
