    1. Day 1 Arrival at Kilimanjaro, Tanzania

      Upon arrival you will be collected from the airport by your guide and transferred through to the hotel based in Moshi.

    2. Day 2 Trek to Marangu Gate (5900 ft) – Mandara hut (8850 ft)

      After breakfast we transfer through to Marangu Gate where the official trek begins. The 3 to 4 hour hike is fairly easy going on the first day and heads up through the low level walking paths of the mountain. Along the way we stop for a light pre-packed lunch and take take in the spectacular scenery around Kilimanjaro national park. We reach Marangu Hut in the late afternoon, where you can relax and enjoy a sumptuous meal prepared by the camp staff. 

    3. Day 3 Trek from the Mandara hut (8850 ft) – Horombo hut (11100 ft)

      The trek on day three begins early after breakfast. We make our way up through the alpine moors and the change in temperature is noticeable. We recommend a light jacket for this part of the trek. The hike takes around 6 hours to complete including a stop for lunch, with arrival at Horombo hut in the early afternoon. Arrival at Horombu is early enough for climbers to relax in camp and start getting acclimatised for the next day ascent. Dinner is served in the early evening, so those fit enough are able to summit the Mawenzi peak, located nearby, for some spectacular views. 

    4. Day 4 Trek from Horombo hut (11100 ft) – Kibo hut (14100 ft)

      The trek on day four heads out after breakfast and makes its way on a steep ascent into the high-alpine zone. This region is characterised by spare vegetation and an eerie rocky landscape similar to Mars.

      With a few stops along the way including the packed lunch, hikers are able to determine their own capability in progressing up to the summit base of Kibo hut. We reach Kibo hut in the early afternoon to rest and acclimatise in preparation for the summit attempt the next day.

      Should any hiker wish to turn back at this point then we have made provision for a mountain guide to accompany them back down the mountain to Horombu hut.

    5. Day 5 Trek from Kibo hut (14100 ft) – Summit Uhuru Peak – Horombo hut (11100 ft)

      Ascent to the summit of Uhuru peak starts in the early hours of the morning with a difficult trek, in high altitude, through the mountains glaciers in the dark. We time our arrival at the summit as dawn breaks across Africa, illuminating the exhilarating view across the open Savannah.

      At the summit we spend time resting and exploring the crater for an hour and a half before making the descent back down to the Kibo hut, where a prepared lunch will be waiting.

      After lunch and an hours respite we continue onto the Horombu hut, having covered around 13miles over 14 hours, for some truly deserved rest for the evening. 

    6. Day 6 Descent to Horombo hut (11100 ft) – Marangu Gate (5900 ft)

      Day six we start the descent after breakfast heading back down to Marangu gate back through the rainforest and into the warmer climates of the Savannah. At Marangu gate we will be collected by the transfer and after a fond farewell to the Mountain, head back to the hotel. The tour comes to a close with certificates of completion being awarded by your guide, followed by some drinks in the bar. 

    7. Day 7 Airport Transfer

      Transfer back to the airport will be done in the morning for departure.

    If you are travelling from outside the SADC region then you will require entry visas for Tanzania.

    Please check with you local immigration authority in advance.

    There is no current requirement for vaccinations to enter Tanzania besides Yellow Fever. It is advisable to check with a local travel clinic prior to departure.

    Mount Kilimanjaro is a serious trek and requires a high level of hiking fitness to achieve the summit.

    It is advisable to do some high mountain training and lots of running/walking prior to attempting the summit.

    Apart from the high altitude, no experience is required to summit Kilimanjaro, as this tour is guided from start to finish.  Kili is a fairly mild Mountaineering experience compared with its counterparts parts in the 7 Summits.
