    ONTO KILIMANJARO

    Head to Machame Gate passing some Mad Projects en route, set deep in the cloud forest that surrounds Mt Kilimanjaro. After signing in at the National Park Gate you begin a slow and very steady walk from Machame Gate at 1800m Above Sea Level (ASL) to 2980m ASL. This day takes 5 hours, a gradual ascent through thick cloud forest. Arrive in camp and relax, enjoying the incredible views of Kibo Peak.

    The Shira Plateau

    A steep ascent takes you along the Machame ridge line, gradually working its way up to the Shira Plateau. Spectacular views of Kibo Peak follow you the whole way. Lunch will be taken en-route, before arriving onto the Shira Plateau at early afternoon, and camp near Shira Hut at 3,840m ASL (5-6 hrs). From here the true vista of your surroundings become apparent, with spectacular views both of Kibo Peak, and out west towards Mt Meru and the Maasai Highlands. The afternoon gives you good resting opportunities, combined with a full and hearty dinner.

    PREPARING FOR FINAL ASCENT

    Head east, across the plateau on a gradual incline. The gradual ascent over the Shira Plateau takes you up to an altitude of 4,400m ASL, providing valuable acclimatization. With lunch en-route, you will descend in the afternoon down to Barranco Campsite, set at the base of the Barranco Wall at 3,950m ASL. Barranco Campsite offers some of the most spectacular views of Kibo Peak. After another hearty dinner retire to your tented accommodation for the night.

    The Barranco Wall and Karanga Valley

    Head east up the Barranco Wall, a height gain of 700ft. From here you continue over the ridges and valleys to the Karanga Valley. Lunch will be taken en-route and you’ll arrive into camp in the early afternoon, a 6 hour walk.

    The Karanga Valley and Barafu

    Head steeply into the face of Kibo Peak ascending up to Barafu Camp. The journey is short, only taking around 3 hours but it is taken very slowly.

    THE ROOF OF AFRICA

    Beginning at midnight, breakfast is served and you begin an extremely slow ascent across the scree slopes towards Stella Point. First light comes up around 05:30AM, and you should reach Stella Point for around sun-rise. From Stella Point it is a gentle ascent around to Uhuru Peak: The Roof of Africa. After admiring some of the views, you descend back to Stella Point and down to Barafu. Here you can rest up for one or two hours with lunch being served. Then start the descent to our final campsite (3100m) at Mweka forest and a well earned nights rest!

    REST AND RELAXATION

    Descend down to Mweka Gate, a gradual decline through the heath and cloud forest. At Mweka Gate you’ll be collected and transferred to your hotel in Moshi, a half hour drive. Enjoy the very welcoming shower and hot lunch before receiving your Uhuru Peak Certificates! The afternoon can be spent as free time. In the evening you travel into Moshi town for a celebratory meal and drinks.
