What to Expect

                  Total distance: 8.75km

                  Hiking Time (approx.): 3 hours

Marangu gate, the headquarters of Kilimanjaro National Park, lies a 45 minute drive from Moshi town.  Stop at Kisamboni for your picnic lunch before continuing on upwards, with the trail steepening as you pass through the forest.

                  Total distance: 12km

                  Hiking Time (approx.): 6-8 hours

After a short stretch of forest at the start of the day, you will be walking mostly through moorland   You’ll stop for a picnic lunch along the way before reaching the Horombo Huts. 

Day 3:      Horombo Huts – Zebra Rocks (4050m) – Mawenzi Huts (4535m) – Horombo Huts

                   Hiking time (approx.): 4-5 hours

Not only does this extra day provide you with extra acclimatisation but you will get to a spectacular viewpoint, seldom seen by others on the mountain.  Leave Horombo huts following a leisurely breakfast to head up to Zebra rocks.

This day you will pass across the saddle, the rather barren stretch of alpine desert that separates Kibo and Mawenzi peaks.  You’ll arrive here for a late lunch and then rest up in preparation for your summit.

Day 5:

Summit Night:       Kibo Huts (4715m) to Uhuru Peak (5895m) back to Kibo Huts                                                                              Total distance: 6.25km

Depending on how you have fared with the altitude in the days before, you will be woken at 11pm-12am to start your ascent up to Uhuru Peak.  Upon reaching Gillman’s point you will stop for a well-deserved rest. 

Day 6:      Start: Horombo Huts (3720m) to Marangu Gate (1905m)

Total distance: 20.75km

                  Hiking time: 7-8 hours


 A long last day, which will no doubt feel like a walk in the park after yesterday’s efforts.
