What to Expect
Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Machame Camp, Tanzania

Drive from Moshi to Machame Gate takes about 45 minutes. The journey passes through the village of Machame which is located on the lower slopes of the mountain. We depart the park gate and walk through the rain forest on a winding trail up a ridge. At lower elevations the trail can be muddy and slippery. Gaiters and trekking poles are a good idea here. We continue a short distance until we reach the Machame Camp. • Elevation: 1830m/6000ft to 3050m/9950ft • Distance: 11km/7mi • Hiking Time: 5-6 hours • Habitat: Montane Forest

Duration: 6 hours

Stop At: Shira Camp, Tanzania

After having breakfast, you will leave the glades of the rain forest and continue on an ascending path, crossing the little valley and walking along a steep rocky ridge, covered with heather until the ridge ends. As you hike, you will turn the route to the west onto a river gorge. After that, you will rest, have dinner, and stay overnight at Shira Campsite. • Elevation: 9,400 feet to 12,500 feet • Distance: 5 kilometers • Hiking time: 4 – 6 hours • Habitat: Moorland

Duration: 6 hours

Stop At: Barranco Camp, Tanzania

From the Shira Plateau we continue to the east up a ridge, passing the junction towards the peak of Kibo. As we continue, our direction changes to the South East towards the Lava Tower, called the “Shark’s Tooth” (elev 4650m/15,250ft). Shortly after the tower we come to the second junction which goes to the Arrow Glacier. We now continue down to the Barranco Camp. Although you end the day around the same elevation as when you began, this day is very important for acclimatization and will help your body prepare for summit day. • Elevation: 3850m/12,600ft to 4000m/13,000ft • Distance: 10km/6mi • Walking Time: 5-6 hours • Habitat: Semi-desert

Duration: 6 hours

Stop At: Karanga Camp, Tanzania

After having breakfast, you will leave Barranco and continue on a steep ridge passing the Barranco Wall, to the Karanga Valley Campsite. This is a short day meant for acclimatization. • Elevation: 13,000 feet to 13,100 feet • Distance: 5 kilometers • Hiking time: 4 – 5 hours • Habitat: Alpine Desert

Duration: 6 hours

Stop At: Barafu Camp, Tanzania

After having breakfast, you will leave Karanga and hit the junction which connects with the Mweka Trail. You will continue the journey up to the Barafu Camp. At this point, you will have completed the South Circuit, which offers views of the summit from many different angles. There, you will make camp, rest, enjoy dinner, and prepare for the summit day. The two peaks of Mawenzi and Kibo can be seen from this location. • Elevation: 13,100 feet to 15,300 feet • Distance: 4 kilometers • Hiking time: 4 – 5 hours • Habitat: Alpine Desert

Duration: 6 hours
