Tour Ends

 Day 01 : Departure London Heathrow
Today you will board the flight to Kilimanjaro International Airport. Overnight is in the plane.
 Day 02 : Moshi
You are met on arrival at Kilimanjaro International Airport and transferred to the Springlands Hotel in Moshi. Those arriving by 1900 will meet for an equipment check and climb briefing. If arrival is late evening, the briefing is held the next morning. Overnight at Springlands Hotel on bed and breakfast basis.
 Day 03 : Moshi – National Park Gate
Drive to Londorossi Park Gate. Walk through plantations, farmlands and plains, with the chance to see buffalo, Roan and other antelope. (6-8 hours walking). Overnight at Mti Mkubwa Camp on full board basis
 Day 04 : Trekking Day I
Trek across heathland, grassy moorland and the plateau’s rock formations with acclimatisation walks as well. (4-6 hours walking). Overnight at Shira Camp One full board basis
 Day 05 : Trekking Day II
An easy day to help acclimatization, and to explore the volcanic rock formations of Shira Plateau. We walk to the summit of Shira Cathedral, a huge buttress of rock flanked by steep pinnacles, before reaching the next camp near Shira Hut (3,840 m.). This campsite has some of the most stunning views on Kilimanjaro, close to the glaciated dome of Kibo and the jagged rim of Shira Plateau. The views from here of Mt. Meru floating on the clouds are simply unforgettable. (4-8 hours walking) Overnight at Shira Camp Two full board basis
 Day 06 : Trekking Day III
A morning of gentle ascent and panoramic views, leaving the moorland plateau behind to walk on lava ridges beneath the glaciers of the Western Breach. After lunch near the Lava Tower junction (4,550 m.) we descend to the bottom of the Great Barranco valley (3,900 m.), sheltered by towering cliffs and with extensive views of the plains far below. [5-7 hours walking] Overnight at Barranco Camp on full board basis
 Day 07 : Trekking Day IV
A steep climb up the Barranco Wall leads us to an undulating trail on the south-eastern flank of Kibo, with superb vistas of the Southern Icefields. Lunch is usually taken at Karanga, the last water point, in a steep valley. After lunch, the terrain changes to scree, and we climb steeply to reach the Barafu campsite (4,600 m.) by mid-afternoon. The remainder of the day is spent resting in preparation for the final ascent before a very early night. There are often spectacular views of the plains far below from Barafu. [6-8 hours walking] Overnight at Barafu Camp on full board basis
 Day 08 : Trekking Day V
We will start our ascent by torchlight at about 1 a.m. so that we can be up on the Crater rim by sunrise. The steep climb over loose volcanic scree has some well-graded zig-zags and a slow but steady pace will take us to Stella Point (5,735 m.), in about five or six hours. We will rest there for a short time to enjoy the sunrise over Mawenzi. Those who are still feeling strong can make the two hour round trip from here along the crater rim to Uhuru Peak (5,896 m.), passing close to the spectacular glaciers and ice cliffs that still occupy most of the summit area. The descent to Barafu is surprisingly fast, and after some refreshment, we continue to descend to reach our final campsite (3,100 m.) at the edge of Mweka Forest. (11-15 hours walking). Overnight at Mweka Camp on full board basis
 Day 09 : Trekking Day VI
A gentle descent through lovely forest with lush undergrowth takes us to the National Park gate at Mweka (1,650 m.) (4-6 hours walking) When we finish the climb, there will be a vehicle waiting to meet you and transfer you back to Moshi. Overnight at Springlands Hotel on bed and breakfast basis
 Day 10 : Final Departure
After breakfast you are transferred to Kilimanjaro International Airport or connect for onward arrangements.
