En route to our camp we can see many beautiful flowers, and with luck some Colobus monkeys and signs of elephant.

Overnight: Big Tree Camp, Mt. Kilimanjaro

Day 4: Big Tree Camp to Shira 1 Camp

Today we will hike for approximately 6 hours before we reach the western side of the Shira Plateau. Hiking through the forest, we will have the opportunity to observe the area for animal and bird life. The days’ hike takes us from montane forest, through a transition zone and into the heath zone where old lava flows are visible. Your guides will identify and discuss unique environmental differences that characterizes each zone. We reach the edge of the plateau after lunch and eventually our camp for the night offering dramatic views of Kilimanjaro and its permanent glaciers.

Included: All meals & beverages (as per itinerary)

Overnight: Shira 2 Camp, Mt. Kilimanjaro

Day 6: Shira 2 Camp to Lava Tower Camp

Today is another important day for acclimatization as we hike for 5 hours to an elevation above 4,500 meters. We will pass through the alpine moorland zone where plants are extremely hardy and consist of lichens, grasses, and heather, to reach Kilimanjaro alpine desert zone. After an early afternoon rest we have a special 2 hour adventure climb up the Lava Tower. This rock scramble will prepare you for the climbs ahead.

Included: All meals & beverages (as per itinerary)

Overnight: Lava Tower Camp, Mt. Kilimanjaro

Day 7: Lava Tower Camp to Karanga Camp
We spend a second night at Lava Tower to adjust to the high desert environment, taking day hikes to higher elevations and marveling at the stark, yet magnificent vistas up and down the massif. As with every day on the mountain, the guides twice daily measure your vital signs, including oxygen saturation, to assess your acclimatization to the extreme altitude.
Included: All meals & beverages (as per itinerary)
Overnight: Karanga Camp, Mt. Kilimanjaro

Day 8: Karanga Camp to Barafu Camp

We climb higher up the mountain from the west, moving pole pole (meaning “slowly” in Kiswahili) to let our bodies rest from the exertion and to acclimate to the thin air. Total hiking time is only about 2 hours. With clear weather you will have a close‐up view of the Western Breach, through which we will ascend tomorrow.

Included: All meals & beverages (as per itinerary)

Overnight: Barafu Camp, Mt. Kilimanjaro

Day 9: Barafu Camp to Uhuru Peak to Millennium Camp

After an early breakfast we make the final ascent to Uhuru Peak, reaching the 19,340 foot summit of Kilimanjaro by 8 a.m. At this early hour, before the clouds close in, you will have spectacular views of Africa in all directions. After a stay of 20 to 30 minutes with tea, snacks, and plenty of photos, we descend 2 to 3 hours to Barafu Camp for lunch, rest, and to take off extra layers. Continuing downhill 3 to 4 hours to the edge of the Mweka Forest, we reach the final night’s camp ‐ 7,000 feet below the summit! Eat, share your experiences of the climb, and sleep soundly. Congratulations, you touched the Roof of Africa
