Journey Highlights

Marangu Route

Marangu route also called the Coca-Cola route is the oldest and most established route on Kilimanjaro. With its gradual slope and direct path, Marangu is considered the easiest route on the mountain.

Lemosho Route

Kilimanjaro's Lemosho route is one of the most scenic routes on the mountain and offers panoramic views of its summit from various angles. This route is popular because there is a good balance between low traffic, beautiful views, and a high summit success rate.

Machame Route

Machame Route is considered to be the most beautiful and scenic of all the different routes up Mount Kilimanjaro, and is suitable for more adventurous hikers who are seeking a more physically challenging trek.

Mount Kilimanjaro

Mount Kilimanjaro is a dormant volcano and the highest mountain in Africa as well as being the highest free-standing mountain in the world. It contains three volcanic cones, which you summit when you take on the adventurous Mount Kilimanjaro trek.

Itinerary

Pick-up from Kilimanjaro International Airport and transfer to Moshi town, which is commonly known as the gateway to Mount Kilimanjaro.
1 night Springlands Hotel – Moshi – Bed and breakfast accommodation at a Base Hotel in Moshi.

  • Overnight at Springlands Hotel, Moshi 
  • Bed and breakfast accommodation at a Base Hotel in Moshi.

After breakfast and a short tour briefing from the guide, depart to Marangu gate of Kilimanjaro National Park (it is a 45-minute drive from Moshi to the Marangu Gate). Upon registering with park authorities, the climb will officially commence with a four-hour walk to the Mandara encampment. You will pass through a thick rainforest zone, where there is a high chance of rain in the afternoon. Spend the night at Mandara Hut (2,750m), an attractive collection of buildings. Bathrooms are available with running water.

  • Overnight at Mandara Huts – Mount Kilimanjaro
  • Dinner, bed, breakfast and lunch

Today you will continue your ascent through the forest for a short time, before reaching the heather and moorland zone at roughly 3,000m (approximately a six-hour walk). Enjoy stunning views of the mountain peaks at this altitude. Spend the night at Horombo Hut (3,720m), which lies in a valley surrounded by giant lobelia and groundsel, flora which are characteristic of this semi-alpine zone. Bathrooms are available with running water.

  • Overnight at Horombo Huts – Mount Kilimanjaro
  • Dinner, bed, breakfast and lunch

The trek continues past the final watering point, and ascends onto the saddle of Kilimanjaro, between the peaks of Kibo and Mawenzi. The vegetation thins out as you enter the desert-like alpine zone (approximately 4,000m) and, once you cross the saddle, Kibo peak comes into view. The saddle is an alpine desert that resembles a lunar landscape. Be careful to notice signs of altitude sickness. This seven-hour walk will be taken at a slow pace. Spend the night at Kibo Hut (4,703m), a comfortable stone construction (no running water at Kibo Hut). This semi-desert zone receives an annual rainfall of under 250mm; the ground often freezes at night, but ground temperatures soar to above 30 degrees Celsius by day. Few plants other than lichens and grasses survive in these conditions.

  • Overnight at Kibo Hut – Mount Kilimanjaro
  • Dinner, bed, breakfast and lunch

Shortly after midnight, commence your climb to the summit of Kilimanjaro, since it is easier to climb the scree slope to Gillman’s Point (5,861m) on the crater rim when it is frozen and an early start for the six-hour hike improves your chances of reaching the summit in time for sunrise. From Gilman’s Point, it is a further two-hour round trip along the crater’s edge to Uhuru Peak, the highest point in Africa. From the summit, it is downhill all the way to Horombo Hut where you will spend your last night on the mountain.

  • Overnight at Horombo Huts – Mount Kilimanjaro
  • Dinner, bed, breakfast and lunch

Today’s descent continues past the Mandara encampment to the bottom of the mountain, where each hiker will receive a well-earned certificate. From here, you will be transferred to a Base Hotel in Moshi and overnight.

  • Overnight at Springlands Hotel – Moshi
  • Bed and breakfast accommodation at a Base Hotel in Moshi

After breakfast, transfer back to Kilimanjaro airport.
