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.

  • Distance: 16 km
  • Hiking Time: 9-11 hours
  • Habitat: Moorland

Today you will cover a lot of ground as you trek across a plateau of grassy moorland and heather scattered with volcanic rock formations. We will trek through Shira 1 Camp from where there are often views of Kibo Peak floating on the clouds as we head towards our destination which is Shira 2. Our steady climb across the moorland of the Shira Plateau will help with acclimatization and we enjoy great panoramic views.

  • Elevation: 12,615 ft to 12,990 ft
  • Distance: 10 km
  • Hiking Time: 7 hours
  • Habitat: Semi Desert

Your trek starts with an ascent with far-reaching panoramic views, walking in to the climatic zone. You will reach the distinct pinnacle of the Lava Tower, 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, sheltered by towering cliffs but with extensive views of the plains below.

  • Elevation: 12,990 ft to 13,250 ft
  • Distance: 6 km
  • Hiking Time: 5 hours
  • Habitat: Alpine Desert

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. From here we have a steep climb up from Karanga valley to our night’s camp at Karanga camp. 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.

  • Elevation: 13,250 ft to 15,288 ft
  • Distance: 10 km
  • Hiking Time: 8-10 hours
  • Habitat: Alpine Desert

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.

  • Elevation: 15,288ft to 19,340ft to 10,150ft
  • Distance: 20 km
  • Hiking Time: 12 hours
  • Habitat: Arctic

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. Another hour’s walking takes us to the summit, Uhuru Peak. 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.

  • Elevation: 10,150ft to 5500ft
  • Distance: 10 km
