Day 1

Rainforest trek and Maundi Crater

Rainforest trek and Maundi Crater

Your tour begins with an hour’s drive from your hotel in Moshi to the Kilimanjaro National Park Gate. After completing the necessary registrations your trek begins! The trail through the rainforest is lush and can be wet. If you keep your eyes peeled, you may see some of the local monkeys! If you have the energy, a quick side trip to Maundi Crater is well worth the effort. Otherwise, you can relax at your first camp, Mandara Hut.

Day 2

Moorland trek to Horombo Hut

Moorland trek to Horombo Hut

Shortly after you begin your trek today, you will begin seeing fewer trees and more of the moorland heather. On a clear day, you should have a great view of Mount Kibo and Mawenzi. Today is a long day on the trail, and you’ll be gaining quite a lot of elevation before finally arriving at Horombo Hut.

Day 3

Alpine desert trail to Kibo Hut

Alpine desert trail to Kibo Hut

Today you’ll trek past the final spot to collect water, which your porters will do on your behalf. You’ll notice less vegetation as you climb onto the saddle of Mount Kilimanjaro, where the rocky expanse of the alpine desert looks like you’re walking on the moon. It’s best to get lots of rest when you arrive at Kibo Hut as it’s a very early wake-up call in the morning!

Day 4

Summit Uhuru Peak

Summit Uhuru Peak

Your trek this morning will begin again sometime around midnight. You’ll need your warm clothes and headlamp before you attack the first stretch of heavy scree and switchbacks. Once you’ve reached Gilman’s Point, the sun will be up and hopefully will give you a necessary burst of energy for the final push along the crater’s rim and up to the summit. At the snowy peak, you will be treated to incredible views from the highest point in Africa. You’ll have a chance to rest and have lunch once you’ve made it down to Kibo Hut, but then you will be hiking all the way back down to safer altitudes at Horombo Camp for the night.

Main Destination:

Accommodation:
Horombo Hut
  • Budget mountain hut located in or near Mt Kilimanjaro

Day 5

Trek down and return to Moshi

Trek down and return to Moshi

Today you’ll be able to spend the day trading memories of the summit with your fellow trekkers as you descend back into the warmer climate. You’ll pass by the Mandara Camp on your way down, and will start to see wildlife again as you return through the forest. Once you’ve reached the Kilimanjaro Park Gate, your vehicle will be waiting to drive you back to Moshi.
