Location

Mount Kilimanjaro or just Kilimanjaro with its three volcanic cones, “Kibo”, “Mawenzi”, and “Shira”, is a dormant volcano in Tanzania. It is the highest mountain in Africa, about 4,900 metres (16,100 ft) from its base, and 5,895 metres (19,341 ft) above sea level. The first people known to have reached the summit of the mountain were Hans Meyer and Ludwig Purtscheller in 1889. The mountain is part of the Kilimanjaro National Park and is a major climbing destination. The mountain has been the subject of many scientific studies because of its shrinking glaciers and disappearing ice fields.

Single Room Supplement: USD 180

SRS- Stands for Single Room Supplement. Most of the hotels have double rooms (A room with one big bed for 2 people or a room with 2 single beds occupied by 2 people) this means the 3rd person will be left without a room to stay and the alternative would be to occupy the single room (a room with one bed ). SRS apply for non-even (3, 5, 7, 9,11…) travelers. Therefore the SRS fee is being paid by the person occupying a room alone.

Itinerary

Day 1:Arrival

On your arrival, Kubwa Five Safaris representative with your name printed on an A4 paper will welcome you at Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO) and transferred to Keys Hotel in Moshi followed by a briefing from your mountain guide and rest on full board accommodation plan.

Day 2:3 to 5-hour walking to Mandara Hut

You leave Moshi to Kilimanjaro Gate – Mandara Hut. Take a short drive from Moshi or Arusha town to the Kilimanjaro Park Gate (1,830 meters) that lies at the edge of Marangu, which is an attractive village with many small coffee and banana plantations. After completing the entrance formalities, you climb up through an attractive and unspoiled forest to reach the clearing containing Mandara Hut (2,700 meters).
The volcanic remains of Maundi Crater are nearby and make a good afternoon excursion. An alternative is to rest and enjoy the beautiful forest. There is a rich birdlife at the huts and monkeys are often seen as well. Meals at Mandara Hut

Day 3:4 to 6-hour walking from Mandara Hut to Horombo Hut

You leave Mandara Hut to Horombo Hut. The first part of the walk is a steep ascent through a forest but the path soon opens out into grassy moorland and, in clear weather, there are good views of Kibo and Mawenzi peaks.
You climb steadily through the moorland zone, containing giant heather and occasional stands of groundsel, to eventually reach Horombo Hut (3,720 meters). Sunrises and sunsets here are often very stunning, the site is close to the glaciated dome of Kibo, and there is a real sense of being above the clouds. Return to Horombo Hut for the night.

Day 44 to 5-hour walking from Horombo Hut to Kibo Hut

You leave Horombo Hut to Kibo Hut. Through Desert Saddle, you climb very gradually towards the lunar desert of the Saddle between Mawenzi and Kibo. The terrain changes to screed and there is a palpable sense of high altitude wilderness. Usually, you will reach Kibo Hut (4,700 meters) at the bottom of the crater wall by midday and the afternoon is free (to contemplate the summit ascent!). The remainder of the day is spent resting and eating in preparation for the final climb before a very early night!

Day 5:11 to 15-hour walking from Kibo Hut to Gillman’s Point

You leave Kibo Hut to Summit and down to Horombo Hut. You will start your ascent by torchlight at about 01:00 so that you can be up at Gillman’s Point by sunrise. The initial climb is steep over a loose volcanic screen but there is some well-graded zigzag and a slow but steady pace will have you up to Gillman’s (5,685 meters) in about five or six hours. You will rest there and spend some time taking in the sunrise.
Those who are still feeling strong can make the three-hour round trip from here along the crater rim to Uhuru Peak (5,896 meters), passing close to the spectacular glaciers that still occupy most of the summit area. The descent is surprisingly fast and you return to Horombo Hut for the night

Day 6:5 to 6-hour walking

It’s time to have a safari to Kilimanjaro Retrace through a forest. You retrace your steps with a pleasant moorland walk to Mandara and then a lovely forest walk to the national park gates and Moshi or Arusha town. The greenness and lushness of the forest are quite a stunning contrast to the summit day and it really makes you realize how varied the scenery on Kilimanjaro really is.

Day 7:Departure

This day will be your departure day.
