On this 6 days Tanzania Safari, you will be hiking Kilimanjaro, it is less difficult than you may assume, particularly if you take your time like you will on the Machame Route. It will take five days to reach the summit of the famous volcano, with stops in gorgeous woods, glacier ridges, and ice fields along the route. Because your guide will be guiding the course, you will be free to focus on the world-class experience.

We continue east along a ridge, crossing the intersection towards the Kibo peak, before turning southeast towards the “Shark’s Tooth” Lava Tower (Elev. 4650m/15,250ft). We reach a second fork just after the tower, which leads to the Arrow Glacier. We then continue our descent to Barranco Camp, where we will spend the night.

This is one of the most spectacular days, seeing your crew’s power, agility, and strength jet over this wall with seeming ease. We continue up toward Barafu Camp, and once there, you have finished the South Circuit, which provides amazing views of the peak from several viewpoints. We’ll eat early and relax before summit night. Overnight in Barafu Camp.

The anticipation is growing as the morning approaches with an early start between midnight and 2 a.m. This is the most psychologically and physically demanding part of the journey. We continue our ascent between the Rebmann and Ratzel glaciers, striving to keep warm and focused on the incredible feeling of achievement that awaits us.
Ascend across hard scree towards Stella Point on the crater rim using a switchback motion in a northwesterly direction. During your brief stay here, you will be rewarded with a spectacular dawn. Faster hikers may be able to see the dawn from the peak. You will most likely encounter snow on your last 1-hour trek to Uhuru Peak. For unruly loose gravel and volcanic ash terrain, we highly suggest gaiters and hiking poles. A well-deserved relaxation awaits you as you spend your last evening at Mweka Camp.
