What to Expect
7 DAYS)MOUNT KILIMANJARO CLIMB(MARANGU ROUTE)

Day 1 NAIROBI TO MOSHI

The tour leaves Nairobi from the Parkside Hotels, where you will catch the Nairobi to Moshi express bus, this is a public shuttle service.You are asked to meet at Parksides Hotel at 7.00am sharp!. The journey to Moshi takes between 6 and 7 hours, including the stop at the border.On arrival at the Hotel in Moshi you will be met by a Kilimanjaro Climb representative who will run through all pre-climb details. Overnight stay, at a hotel.

NB Money changing facilities in Moshi are limited. ATM's are available and accept Visa card, but not Mastercard.

DAY 2: KILIMANJARO NATIONAL PARK GATE TO MANDARA HUT

After breakfast and briefing, drive to the Kilimanjaro National Park Gate (45 minutes), register and commence the climb. Walk through the rainforest to the Mandara encampment. A side trip to Maundi Crater is a good way to see the surroundings including Northern Tanzania and Kenya. In the rainforest, look for towering Eucalyptus trees, bird life, and Colobus monkeys.

 DAY 3.MANDARA HUT TO HOROMBO HUT

You leave the glades of the rainforest and follow an ascending path on the open moorlands to the Horombo encampment. Views of Mawenzi and the summit of Kibo are amazing. Look for giant lobelias and grounsels. You may begin to feel the effects of the altitude.

 DAY 4.HOROMBO HUT TO KIBO HUT

Ascending, we now pass the last watering point, walking onto the saddle of Kilimanjaro between the peaks of Kibo and Mawenzi. Vegetation begins with upper heathland but then disappears into “moonscape”. Dinner, rest, and prepare for summit climb.

DAY 5.KIBO HUT TO SUMMIT THEN HOROMBO HUT

Very early in the morning (midnight to 2am), commence the climb to the summit on steep and heavy scree or snow up to Gilman’s point located on the crater rim. Continuing, we now ascend to Uhuru Peak, which is the highest point in Africa.From here we descend, stopping for lunch and a rest at Kibo before continuing on to the Horombo encampment.The beginning of this climb is done in the dark and requires headlamps or flashlights.

DAY 6.HOROMBO HUT TO MOSHI

After breakfast, a steady descent takes us down through moorland to the Mandara Hut. Continue descending through lush forest path to the National Park gate at Marangu. At lower elevations, it can be wet and muddy. Gaiters and trekking poles will help. Shorts and t-shirts will probably be plenty to wear (keep rain gear and warmer clothing handy).

Dont forget to tip your guides and porters. It is time for celebration!

Day 7.MOSHI TO NAIROBI

Check out from the hotel and head back to Nairobi.
