Why go there?
Kilimanjaro is 5895 meters high an extinct volcano, with 3 peaks: Kibo, Shira and Mawenzi ! The highest summit of Africa is one of the most beautiful places on earth. The mountain is situated completely in Tanzania. Kilimanjaro is a non technical mountain that can be climbed by anyone with a fair good condition and patience. There are many different routes, each passing rainforest, moorland and glaciers. Most people seize the opportunity of being in wildlife paradise and couple a safari to their trip as well.
3°04' South Latitude, 37°21' East longitude. Kili is the easiest of all the 7 Summis, so the most popular. Our route goes up moderate slopes and is provided with rather comfortable huts (with dormitories and dining rooms).
Arrival in Kilimanjaro airport. Transfer to Moshi. Night in a hotel.
Transfer to Marangu Gate (1981m). Walk through the rain forest to Mandara hut (2743m), about 3 hr. 12 km.
Leave the forest and cross the open moorland to Horombo hut (3760m), about 4-5 hr. 15 km.
Rest and acclimatisation day at Horombo Hut. Day walk to Zebra Rocks.
Walk over the moorland, then alpine deserts to the “Saddle" between the peaks of Mawenzi and Kibo. From here we walk for about an hour to reach Kibo hut (4730m). All in all 4-5 hr. 15 km.
We leave very early for the summit and scramble up a steep scree leading to Gillman`s Point (5681m), which is in the crater rim (4-6 hr). Continue around the rim (about 2 hours) to Uhuru Peak (5895m), the highest point in Africa. Descend to Kibo Hut for tea and biscuits and then down to Horombo hut (3760). All in all - ascend and descend to Kibo takes about 10 hr and about 3 hr to Horombo. All in all 27 km.
Descending to Marangu gate and driving back to the hotel. Quiet afternoon.
Driving from the hotel in Moshi to Lake Manyara, where we stop for a picnic before entering the park. An afternoon game drive, exploring the habitats of different game within the park. In the evening we return to our camp. Free time to get acquainted with the Mtu wa Mbu culture.
After breakfast, our safari goes on. We descend into the Ngorongoro Crater 600 meters deep and 20 kilometers wide but its real dimensions are only appreciated from the floor. The place is the home of nearly every species of African animal, it offers a chance to view an incredible concentration of East African mammals, such as elephant, rhino, buffalo, hippo, lion etc. In the evening we return to hotel in Moshi.
Drive to Kilimanjaro airport. Flight home.
