Tour Itinerary:

Day 1: The climb begins at the village of Nale Moru (1950 mts) through cultivated land before entering the pine forest. Watch out for Kilimanjaro Colobus monkeys in the tree tops with their white fringed 'capes' and tail. Taking 3 - 4 hours the first camp is on the edge of the moorland zone where the forest begins to thin out at First Cave at 8500 ft/2600 m. Overnight 1st Cave Camp.

Day 2: The morning walk is a steady ascent up to Second Cave at 11300 ft/3450 m with superb views of Kibo and the eastern ice fields on the crater rim. Pushing on to reach Third Cave taking 3 to 4 hours at 12800 ft/3800 m for overnight camp. Dinner and overnight
3rd Cave Camp.

Day 3: Continue ascending on the east side of Kibo crossing the saddle between Mawenzi and Kibo taking 4 to 5 hours to reach Kibo Hut at 15000 ft/4700 m. The remainder of the day is spent resting in preparation for the final ascent which begins mid-night. Dinner and rest at Kibo Camp.

Day 4: An early start for the summit on steep heavy screed to arrive at Gilman's Point at 18640 ft/ 5681 m in time to see the sun rise. Those who want to reach the highest point in Africa can take the approximately three hour excursion to Uhuru Peak 19340/5895 m passing close to the spectacular glaciers and ice cliffs that still occupy most of the summit area. The descent to Kibo is surprisingly fast and after some refreshment, continue the descent to reach the final campsite at Horombo at 12000 ft/3700 m taking 11 to 15 hours. Overnight Horombo Camp.

Day 5: A steady descent down through the moor land to Mandara Hut and then downward through the lush forest on a good path to the National Park gate at Marangu (1830 m) taking 5 to 7 hours to be met and transferred to your Hotel for dinner and overnight

Airfare is not included in the tour price.
