Day 4
Arusha - Serengeti National Park

This park is to Tanzania, what the Masai Mara Game Reserve is to Kenya. Covering 14,763 sq km, the Serengeti is dominated by vast, open plains with an abundance of wildlife. A picnic lunch will be provided en-route and the afternoon will be spent viewing game led by Silver Spark Africa Safaris guide and absorbing the breathtaking scenery of the almost treeless plains of the Serengeti.

Day 5
Serengeti -Ngorongoro Crater

Depart Serengeti for Ngorongoro crater via Olduvai Gorge. Ngorongoro is an impressive 20 km wide volcanic crater with 600 m walls. The views from the crater rim are breathtaking, and there is an ever-present abundance of wildlife, due to the permanent water supply on the crater floor. Olduvai Gorge is famed for the discovery of 3.5 million-year-old fossil fragments of early human civilization. We will enjoy lunch overlooking the crater, and the afternoon will be spent at leisure.

Day 6
Karate - Moshi

A pre-departure group meeting with your mountain guide is scheduled for the early evening. Situated in the heart of a major coffee-growing region, Moshi is an attractive small town of about 150,000 people and it lies at the base of Kilimanjaro. Despite the teasing proximity of snow-capped Kilimanjaro, Moshi is not the cool highland settlement you might expect. Instead, lying at an altitude of 810 meters, it has a surprisingly humid, sticky climate, reminiscent of the coast.

Day 7
Machame Gate to Machame Camp

Most of today’s day is spent in the gorgeous and fascinating forested slopes of Mt. Kilimanjaro, most of which is considered to be rainforest zone. It is very possible that we will see some rain today, or that at least the trail will be moist and soggy, and possibly muddy. We cover a lot of distance today, though the gradient is gradual. We climb the lower slopes of the mountain, ending at the Machame Campsite, just beyond the rain forest and within the fascinating heath-land

Day 8
Machame Camp To Shira 2 Camp

You will reach a gentler ascent through the lower alpine moorland, which is notable for beautiful wild alpine flowers and the unique giant lobelia and giant groundsel (Senecio Kilimanjaro) plants. If it’s a clear day, you will have direct views of Kibo, the peak and ultimate goal of your adventure. After a short lunch and rest, traverse across the Shira plateau west towards a river gorge, and finally, you will reach the Shira campsite.

Day 9
Shira 2 Camp to Barranco Camp

Today we turn east and continue to climb “pole pole” (slowly, slowly) through increasingly rocky and barren terrain. We have lunch and ascend the rocky scree path to the Lava Tower (4630m). The trek now starts to become more difficult, as the trail steepens, and most hikers start to feel the effects of the altitude, such as weakness and lack of breath. From the Lava Tower, we descend steeply for 2 hours down more than 600m into the Great Barranco Valley.

Day 10
Barranco Camp to Barafu Camp

Our trail continues down into the Karanga Valley and then joins up with the Mweka route – our descent trail. In this valley, your porters will stop to collect water, as there will be none further up. Here the temperature will grow colder as we follow the trail climbing through this empty and dry landscape up to Barafu Camp. The two peaks Kibo and Mawenzi can be seen from our camp.
Barafu Camp

Day 11
Barafu Camp To Summit To Mweka Camp

Today you will be woken at approximately in time to leave camp by around morning hour, and after a warm drink and a light snack, you will begin the most difficult though the most rewarding day of the trek – your hike up to the top of Africa. Climbing through the dark, you will ascend northwest on rough scree passing between the Rebmann and Tarzel glaciers. After approximately 6 hours of slow but strenuous hiking, you will reach the rim of the main crater, Stella Point, at 5685m.

Mweka Camp

Day 12
Descent - Mweka Camp to Moshi

Today you will wake up full of oxygen and ready to descend the short hike to the Mweka Gate. Enjoy the forest on the slopes of Mt. Kilimanjaro, and upon arrival at the Mweka gate, successful hikers will receive their summit certificates (gold for Uhuru Peale, Green for Stella point). From the Mweka Gate, you will continue down into the Mweka village for lunch, normally a muddy 1hour hike. Upon arrival to Moshi in the afternoon, relax, or have that much-deserved shower and congratulatory beverage.
