Stop At: Kilimanjaro National Park, Kilimanjaro National Park, Kilimanjaro Region
After breakfast and a general briefing for your upcoming tour (including equipment check), the drive
first goes to the National Park gate, which takes about an hour. While your guide does the necessary
formalities, you can relax and watch the various mountain teams in their preparation. As soon as
everything is done, your adventure begins. In short time you will be immersed in the magnificent
mountain forest with its huge jungle trees, ferns, moss carpets and lianas. With luck, you will observe
the black and white colobus monkeys in the tree tops. After about 5 - 6 hours, you will reach the day's
destination - Machame Camp. This is just above the tree line at about 3010 meters above sea level.
After dinner, you will spend your first night on Kilimanjaro.

Day 3: Machame Camp (3010m) to New Shira Camp (3845m)

Stop At: Kilimanjaro National Park, Kilimanjaro National Park, Kilimanjaro Region
After an early start, you will begin the day’s walk through heath and moorland before the trail becomes
steeper and the landscape more open. Soon you will glimpse the summit region of Kilimanjaro. Today's
stage is shorter and you will soon arrive at the New Shira Camp, where the view of Kilimanjaro with its
rock faces and hanging glaciers is something you should not miss – particularly at sunset. An early
night will be needed tonight as tomorrow the trail becomes more strenuous
Duration: 1 day

Meals included:
• Breakfast
• Lunch
• Dinner
Accommodation included: Overnight at the tent

Day 4: New Shira Camp (3845m) - Lava Tower (4640m) - Barranco Camp (3960m)

Stop At: Kilimanjaro National Park, Kilimanjaro National Park, Kilimanjaro Region
Today you will ascend approx. 800 meters, but the night is spent only slightly higher than the previous
night at Shira Camp. This allows your body a better acclimatization for the further climb.
The hike begins with a long ascent over the Shira Plateau to the Lava Tower. Here the vegetation
becomes barren and turns into an alpine desert landscape. The path then leads through the extensive
Barranco Valley, with its lobelias and the huge senecios. After approximately 6-7 hours you will reach
the Barranco Camp, which many claim is the most beautiful camp on the mountain.
Duration: 1 day

Meals included:
• Breakfast
• Lunch
• Dinner
Accommodation included: Overnight at the tent

Day 5: Barranco Camp (3960m) to Karanga Camp (4035m)

Stop At: Kilimanjaro National Park, Kilimanjaro National Park, Kilimanjaro Region
Today we will lead you through the Barranco Wall and it is another day to help with acclimatization. The
climbing is relatively easy, although sometimes you need to use hands to hold on. Enjoy the amazing
views before you reach Karanga Camp after approx. 3-4 hours.
Duration: 1 day

Meals included:
• Breakfast
• Lunch
• Dinner
Accommodation included: Overnight at the tent

Day 6: Karanga Camp (4035m) - Barafu Camp (4640m)

Stop At: Kilimanjaro National Park, Kilimanjaro National Park, Kilimanjaro Region
After a leisurely breakfast, you will set off for today's destination, the Barafu Camp. The hike leads you
through a barren landscape, and after 3-4 hours you reach the camp. For the rest of the day you can
relax because tomorrow is summit day! After dinner, we will have a very early bedtime as tomorrow will
be exciting, but also exhausting and very long. Try to sleep a bit!
Duration: 1 day

Meals included:
• Breakfast
• Lunch
• Dinner
Accommodation included: Overnight at the tent

Day 7: Transfer from Barafu Camp (4640m) - Uhuru Peak (5895m) – Mweka Camp (3080m)

Stop At: Kilimanjaro National Park, Kilimanjaro National Park, Kilimanjaro Region
You will be woken around midnight. To strengthen yourself, you will first have a hot coffee or tea and a
small snack. Using the light of your headlight, the next few hours are steadily upwards. After
approximately 5-7 hours, in the early morning light, you will reach the crater rim at the Stella Point.
After a short rest you will continue for about an hour to the highest point, the Uhuru Peak. Finally, it is
done, and the rewards are fantastic views in all directions. The shadow that the Kilimanjaro casts over
Mount Meru in the morning is a special experience. After you have enjoyed the summit, and taken a
few memorable photos, it is time for the descent. At the Barafu Camp you have a short rest, where
your mountain team will greet you with a hot drink and snacks. Afterwards, you will slowly go to Mweka
Camp, where you will spend the last night at the mountain.

After breakfast, and strengthened by the increasingly oxygen dense air, you will begin a leisurely walk
towards the Mweka Gate. The trail continues through the dense rainforest, and after about 2-3 hours
you will reach the gate. At this point it will be time to say goodbye to your team. Once you arrive at the
hotel, you can finally enjoy a well-deserved shower and celebrate your summit success.
