Location:

  Moshi


Accommodation:

  Lodge


Meals Included:

  No Meals


Our Kilimanjaro adventure starts today in the peaceful surrounds of our comfortable pre and post-trek accommodation in Moshi - the Weru Weru River Lodge

Your trek Leader plans to meet everyone in the hotel reception at 5pm for the welcome meeting which will include a full trek briefing. Afterwards we'll enjoy an included group dinner together at the lodge. There are no other activities planned for today. It is important to try and arrive in time for the briefing which includes essential information about your trek. However, if you do miss it, your Leader will inform you of any essential information as soon as you catch up.

If you would like to receive a complimentary airport transfer today, you'll need to arrive into Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO), which is around 45 minutes' drive from our hotel.

If you arrive earlier today, the Lodge has a swimming pool and garden where you can relax with some great views of the Mount Kilimanjaro.

icon Day 2: Trek from Lemosho Glades to Big Tree Forest Camp (2,780m)

Accommodation:

  Camping


After a drive through farmland and plantations we reach the Londorossi National Park Gate on the western side of Kilimanjaro. We continue from there to the Lemosho roadhead at 2,100 m from where we start our trek up the mountain. We will climb steadily through the lush forest of the Lemosho Glades to reach Big Tree Camp (2,780 m). Porters will assist throughout the trek carrying your trek kitbag. You only need to carry what you will need for the day - waterproofs, camera, water bottle, extra fleece, sunhat, packed lunch and three litres of drinking water. Please note that drones are not permitted in Kilimanjaro National Park without a permit, please refer to the equipment section of the trip notes for more information.


Today's seven kilometre trek is expected to take approximately three to four hours with an ascent of 680 metres.

icon Day 3: Walk across grassy moorland to Shira One Camp (3,500m)

Accommodation:

  Camping


Today we trek across a plateau of grassy moorland and heather scattered with volcanic rock formations. Our destination for today is the camp at Shira One (3,500 m), from where there are often views of Kibo Peak, seemingly floating on the clouds. We gain a reasonable amount of altitude today and parts of the route are fairly steep.

Today's eight-and-a-half kilometre trek is expected to take approximately four to five hours with an ascent of 720 metres.

icon Day 4: Walk through upland desert to Shira Two Camp (3,900m)

Accommodation:

  Camping


Today we have 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 acclimatisation and we enjoy great panoramic views. Our tents will be set up for us at the Shira Two Camp (3,900m). In the afternoon there's the option to take an acclimatisation walk to the junction of the trail to the Moir Hut.

The eight kilometre trek between the camps at Shira One and Two is expected to take approximately five hours with an ascent of 400 metres. The afternoon acclimatisation trek is for an additional one to two hours.

icon Day 5: Trek via Lava Tower (4,640m) to Barranco (3,960m)

Accommodation:

  Camping


Today's walk is longer and perfect for our acclimatisation as we will ascend to a high point of 4,640 m before descending to a lower altitude for the night. Our 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. We reach the distinct pinnacle of the Lava Tower (4,640 m), our high point for the day and a great place to enjoy a leisurely lunch. In the afternoon we make a steep descent to our camp for the night, located in the base of the Great Barranco Valley (3,960 m), sheltered by towering cliffs but with extensive views of the plains below.

Today's 10 kilometre trek is expected to take approximately seven to eight hours with an ascent of 740 metres and descent of 680 metres.

icon Day 6: Trek Karanga Camp (4,035m) via the Barranco Wall

Accommodation:

  Camping


Today's trek starts with a steep ascent of the Barranco Wall, a rocky cliff almost 260 metres high, that is believed to have been created by a huge landslide around 100,000 years ago. The trail wends its way up the 'Wall' and there are sections of what could be termed as light scrambling where you will be pulling yourself up over the rocks and it's easiest to put your trekking poles away. You don't need any technical ability and we will take it slowly. The climb leads to an undulating trail on the south eastern side of Kibo; if we are lucky with the weather there will be great views of the Southern Ice Fields. The terrain ranges from volcanic scree to pockets of lush vegetation as we make our descent into the Karanga Valley followed by an ascent to our campsite at 4,035 m. This valley is the last water point on the approach to Barafu.

Today's six kilometre trek from the Barranco Valley to Karanga is expected to take approximately four to five hours with an ascent of 360 metres and descent of 185 metres.

icon Day 7: Trek across compacted scree to Barafu Camp (4,640m)

Accommodation:

  Camping


This morning we make a steep climb out of the Karanga Valley following an easy path on compacted scree constantly gaining altitude with good views, until we reach our camp at Barafu (4,640 m). This afternoon we rest in preparation for the final night time ascent, and plan to get a very early night!

Today's six kilometre trek is expected to take approximately four to five hours with an ascent of 605 metres.

icon Day 8: Kilimanjaro summit ascent (5,895m); descend to Millennium Camp (3,790m)

Accommodation:

  Camping


Today we make our final ascent to the summit at 5,895 m before descending over 2,000 m to our last camp site. It is undoubtedly a long and strenuous day, particularly with the high altitude and extreme cold. We plan to make a start around midnight as at this time the scree and potential snow are still frozen and our aim is to have summited and descended before the top layer of scree becomes wet and slippery. Our path zigzags up the scree and after passing Rebmann Glacier, we reach Stella Point (5,685 m) on the crater rim. Although at times you may be able to walk for only 10 paces before you have to stop and rest, there is no doubt that it is all worth it when you reach the top. From Stella Point we continue around the crater rim to Uhuru Peak, the highest point in Africa at 5,895 m. After time to enjoy your achievement and take those all important photographs at the famous summit sign, we descend back down the scree to Barafu Camp for a rest and something to eat. It's then a virtual continuous descent down to the Millennium Camp at 3,790m where the air feels positively oxygen rich in comparison to where we have just ventured!

Today's walking totals 19.5 kilometres and is expected to take up to 14 hours. The trek from Barafu Camp to Stella Point is an ascent of 1,045 metres and will take around five to six hours, with the hike from here around the crater rim to Uhuru Peak (additional 210 metres of ascent) taking another one to two hours. The trek down from the summit to Millennium Camp, (a total descent of 2,105 metres), is expected to take approximately five to six hours (excluding the time spent resting at Barafu).

icon Day 9: Descend through rainforest to Mweka Gate (1,630m); drive to Moshi

Accommodation:

  Lodge


After a well-deserved night's sleep and rest, our final day on trek takes us down through the lush beauty of the rainforest, enjoying the increasing warmth and richness of the mountain air. The trail end is at the Mweka Gate (1,630 m) from where we travel by road to Moshi and back to the comforts of our lodge. We will have a well-earned lunch on arrival back in Moshi.

Today's 12 kilometre trek is expected to take between approximately four to six hours and is a total descent of 2,160 metres.

icon Day 10: Optional game drive; trip ends in Moshi

This morning there is the option to go on a game drive around the Momella Lakes area in the neraby Arusha National Park which is famed for its high giraffe population as well as elephant, hippo and buffalo. This trip will run from approximately 0630-1300hrs. There needs to be a minimum of two participants for the trip to run and cost is between US$ 122-328 depending on numbers.

If you do not wish to take part in this trip then you are free to depart from the hotel in Moshi at any time. If your flight is departing later in the day luggage storage facilities are available at the lodge. If you would like to receive a complimentary airport transfer today, you'll need to depart from Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO), which is around 45 minutes' drive from our hotel.

Any customers who have booked to travel on our Zanzibar Extension (ref: ZI) will be transferred to Arusha Airport (around 2 hours drive away) for the flight to Zanzibar. Your Leader will advise you of your departure time from the hotel.
