Kilimanjaro Hiking Tour

Climb Kilimanjaro and View Wildlife in the Serengeti

Climb Africa's highest and most storied summit, 19,344' Mt. Kilimanjaro. Over 90% of our guests make the summit! After the climb take a wildlife safari through the legendary game country of the Serengeti Plain and Ngorongoro Crater.

Days 1-3: Mbahe Village-Shimba Farm

We transfer to Mbahe Village, home of the Chagga people and Kili's gateway for over a century. As guests of our climbing leader we are welcomed by his entire village! Recover from your flight and prepare for the climb up the classic Shira Route. We leave early the third day for Shimba Farm, a huge plantation where we do a warm-up hike to a beautiful forested gorge.

Days 4-8: Big Tree Camp to Lava Tower Camp

Climb steadily through luxuriant tropical forest, enchanted moorlands and Kili's stunning alpine zone. As we get higher, sparkling glaciers and the spectacular Western Breach come into view. Our guides make sure we're comfortable and plenty of time to acclimatize is built into our climb.

Days 9-11: Arrow Glacier-Summit-Millenium Camp

We camp near Arrow Glacier with our Western Breach ascent route in full view.  We arise early on Day 11 at Crater Camp for our climb to the top of Africa - 19,344 foot Uhuru Peak! After tea and snacks, congratulations and photos, we descend to Millennium Camp.

Days 12-13: Mbahe Village

We make our final descent to Mweka Gate and return to Mbahe Village for a celebration dinner. The following day is free to relax and pack. Activities include nature walks, swimming, visiting with the local people, drumming, and sampling homemade banana beer! We transfer to the airport for flights home after dinner.
