 Day 01 : Machame Gate - Machame camp

Arrival Kilimanjaro International Airport, you will be met at the arrival lounge, thereafter, a Land Rovers take climbers to the gate at 1800 meters at the entrance to the forest. From here, a 5 to 6 hour walk, gradually ascending through the forest to a ridge between two streams and then onwards to the camp which is just clear of the forest at 3000 meters.

Accommodation: Machame Camp (Full Board)

  Day02 : Machame - Shira Camp BLD

Breakfast is served. Thereafter, walk up a steep ridge from Machame camp through moorland to about 3600 meters, heading straight towards the peak. Then, after about 4 hours, the path turns left, flattening out into a gorge and ascending more gradually to Shira camp (3840 meters) on the Shira plateau to the west of Kibo. Total time is about 5-6 hours.

Accommodation: Shira Camp (Full Board)

 Day 03: Shira - Barranco Camp BLD

After breakfast start the climb to Kibo Hut. At this stage you are closer to Mawenzi than to Kibo, and the climb appears to be taking you to the wrong peak. There is a more direct route to Kibo which the porters use, but it is not advisable on the ascent, as the route you will follow will assist in a more gradual acclimatization, and there is the added advantage of spectacular views of Mawenzi from just under the peak. Until you reach the saddle the terrain is very similar to the previous day; once on the saddle which resembles semi-desert, you can see clearly across to Kibo Hut which seems scarcely any distance away but is in fact some few hours walk. Again, take this slowly in order to acclimatize. The last half hour to the hut can be very tiring as the hut is some way up the peak, and the sight of the next day's path can be pretty daunting, but most people recover some strength after a few hours rest.

Accommodation: Barranco Camp (Full Board))

  Day 04:Barranco to Barafu Camp BLD

Cross the Barranco valley, climb the Barranco wall (not technical climbing), then follow the Kibo South Circuit. Wonderful views are to be had of Kibo's southern glaciers if the weather is clear. Lunch next to the river in the Karanga valley, then on to the intersection of the South Circuit with the Mweka ascent path. Turn left and climb up a ridge for about 2 hours to Barafu Camp (4600 metres). Total time about 6-7 hours.

Accommodation: Barranco Camp (Full Board)

  Day 05 : Barafu Camp – Summit – Mweka Camp BL

This day, you leave Barafu Camp at 1 or 2am. Steep climb over scree and rock towards the Rebmann Glacier, pass a cliff and then enter the gap between the Rebmann and Ratzel glaciers, arriving at the crater rim near Stella point. (About 6-7 hours). 1 more hour to Uhuru peak, the highest point in the African continent as the sun rises!

After some time at the peak, your descend will be via Barafu hut (1-2 hours from Stella point) and then continue for another 3 or 4 hours to Mweka Camp.

Accommodation: Mweka Camp (Full Board)

  Day 06 : Mweka Camp – Mweka Gate B

Descend to Mweka gate, met and transferred to Arusha for either overnight or Dinner then departure.
