Itinerary

Day 1Marangu Gate to Mandara Hut

  • Elevation (ft): 6,046 ft to 8,858 ft
  • Distance: 8 km/5 miles
  • Hiking Time: 4-5 hours
  • Habitat: Rain Forest

We depart from Kili Wonder Hotel or Keys Hotel in Moshi to Marangu Gate for the necessary formalities before beginning our trek. The hiking trail begins by ascending a beautiful, tropical rain forest. At the upper edge of the forest line, we have the opportunity to see blue monkeys. The trail then widens to expose beautiful hillsides until we reach Mandara Hut. Acclimatize at Maundi crater rim

Day 2Mandara Hut to Horombo Hut

  • Elevation (ft): 8,858 ft to 12,205 ft
  • Distance: 12 km/7 miles
  • Hiking Time: 6-8 hours
  • Habitat: Heath

We start the day continuing through the forest until the trail opens into high moorland. We may get our first views of Kibo and Mawenzi peaks – two of the three volcanic peaks that make up the summit of Kilimanjaro.

Day 3Horombo Hut to Kibo Hut

  • Elevation (ft): 12,205 ft to 15,430 ft
  • Distance: 9 km/5 miles
  • Hiking Time: 6-8 hours
  • Habitat: Alpine Desert

We climb gradually, then cross the lunar desert of the “Saddle” between Mawenzi and Kibo. Our camp, Kibo Hut, sits at the bottom of the Kibo crater wall. Once here we rest, enjoy an early dinner to prepare for the summit day.

Day 4Kibo Hut to Uhuru Peak to Horombo Hut

  • Elevation (ft): 15,430 ft to 19,341 ft to  12,250 ft
  • Distance: 19 km
  • Hiking Time: 7-9 hours
  • Habitat: Arctic

Very early in the morning (around midnight), we begin our push to the summit. This is the most mentally and physically challenging portion of the trek. The wind and cold at this elevation and time of day can be extreme. We ascend in the darkness for several hours while taking frequent, but short, breaks. At Gilman’s point (18,600 ft), you will be rewarded with the most magnificent sunrise you are ever likely to see coming over Mawenzi Peak. Finally, we arrive at Uhuru Peak- the highest point on Mount Kilimanjaro and the continent of Africa.

After spending a few moments taking in the plains of Africa and your accomplishment, we descend to Horombo Hut. Later in the evening, we enjoy our last dinner on the mountain and a well-earned sleep.

Day 5Horombo Hut to Marangu Gate

  • Elevation (ft): 12,205 ft to 6,046 ft
  • Distance: 21 km/12 miles
  • Hiking Time: 5-7 hours
  • Habitat: Rain Forest

On our last day, we have a long trek mostly downhill through the tropical rainforest. Once at the park headquarters at Marangu gate, we collect our summit certificates. A vehicle will meet us here and drive us back to the hotel in Moshi.
