Day 1: Kilimanjaro Airport transfer

You'll be picked up and taken to Moshi - a small town at the foothills of Kilimanjaro. In the evening you'll have a welcome dinner, with a briefing by the head guide.

Day 2: Machame Camp (3,021m)

One hour’s drive lies the gate to the Machame route, where you will complete the Flag Off ceremony and begin your trek. The first section of the route passes through dense rainforest towards Machame Camp.

Day 3: Shira Camp (3,830m)

The route continues up through the forest and onto the Shira Plateau, with it's impressive views of the mountain. Looking back, you will be able to see Mt Meru (4,565m) rising high in the distance.

Day 4: Barranco Camp (3,972m)

Today the landscape changes dramatically to barren moorland. You traverse the southwest side of Kilimanjaro, passing underneath the Lava Tower from the now dormant volcano. The day has been spent at a relatively high altitude (up to 4,600m), but you have followed the mountaineering code of ‘walk high, sleep low’ to acclimatize.

Day 5: Barrafu Camp (4,642m)

Our day starts by descending into the Great Barranco, a huge ravine, and then back up over the Great Barranco Wall. It’s an easy scramble and doesn't require any rock climbing. Passing underneath the impressive Heim and Kersten glaciers, you head towards Barrafu Camp (4,642m).

Day 6: Kilimanjaro Summit (5,895m)

Today we start at around 2am and begin the steady hike to the summit. As the first sun rays hit, you'll start to see the glaciers around you, and we aim to be at the summit of Kilimanjaro for sunrise! We spend about 30 minutes on the summit celebrating and taking photos, before hiking all the way down to Millennium Camp for some well-earned rest.

Day 7: Mweka Gate (1635m)

A gentle trek takes us down through the rain forest to Mweka Gate, where you will receive certificates before taking a short 4x4 ride to the hotel in Moshi. In the evening you'll have a celebratory meal with the rest of the team.

Also came back from 7 days trek via Machame route with Bruno, Denis, Kaniki and the porters team. I would like to say it was a great experience and everything was very well organised from the beginning to the end.
