DAY 1
TANZANIA, MOSHI

Today you only have to meet in Moshi. If you are flying in to Kilimanjaro International Airport we can arrange an airport transfer for you.
If you are making your own way to Moshi, please let us know when your estimated time of arrival will be.
If the weather is favourable we might get a first glimpse of the world's tallest freestanding mountain, Mt Kilimanjaro (5895m).
When you arrive at the hotel you will have some time to relax after the drive.
Tonight one of your guides will brief you on what to expect.
Meals: Dinner

DAY 2
KILIMANJARO NP

After a big breakfast we transit to the eastern side of Kilimanjaro to start our trek.
Marangu Gate is at 1980m above sea level and this is where we begin.
It is roughly a 12km journey through rainforest to the Mandara Huts (2750m).
If you are still feeling energetic after this section you can walk to Maundi Crater for some scenic views of both Kenya and Tanzania and on a clear day, Kibo Crater.
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

DAY 3
KILIMANJARO NP

After a good night's rest we have a filling breakfast before we climb out of the forest and through the moorland to Horombo Huts (3720m).
The distance covered today is roughly 15km and along the way you will see some of Tanzania's most interesting vegetation such as the giant lobelia and giant groundsel.
At half way we will stop for lunch while enjoying amazing views of Mawenzi (5149m), one of Kilimanjaro's peaks.
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

DAY 4
KILIMANJARO NP

We get up at sunrise and after breakfast we set off for Kibo Huts (4703m).
Again, it is roughly 15km to our destination. The first half of the hike traverses upper heath land while the second half crosses the vast saddle that connects Mawenzi and Kibo.
The saddle of Kilimanjaro is alpine desert and care must be taken on this rough terrain.
After dinner you need a very early night as tomorrow is going to be an extremely early start.
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

DAY 5
UHURU PEAK (SUMMIT)

Many hours before dawn we begin the final trek to the summit of Kilimanjaro.
It is a 6km journey and should take roughly 8 hours.
We advance upon steep and heavy scree reaching Gilman's Point at 5,861m, and then on to Uhuru Peak, the highest point in Africa located at 5,895m.
Not everyone makes it up to the summit. After taking some spectacular pictures we decend Uhuru Peak and hike approximately 20km back to the Horombo encampment for dinner and a well-earned rest.
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

DAY 6
MOSHI

Our journey back to Marangu Gate is about 27km of down hill.
If you conquered the summit you will receive your summit certificate at the gate.
Green for Gilman's Point and Gold for those that reached Uhuru Peak.
Then, it's back to Moshi for a hot shower and a well-deserved rest.
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
