This Wildlife tour features the safari to the Kilimanjaro Mountain, Ngorongoro Craters, Lake Manyara Wildlife Park and Serengeti Safari Plains. It is based on Budget Camping with Custom built stretch Safari Landcruisers.

Day 1 - Kilimanjaro Airport to Moshi

Arrive in Kilimanjaro and transfer to your Hotel in Moshi. Evening we will brief about the climb and review the gear you have brought to make sure nothing additional is needed.

Day 2 - Machame Camp

(9,927 feet/3,026 m), 7 miles/11 Km (5 to 7 hours)
We will pick you up at the hotel in Moshi after breakfast and drive about an hour to the Machame gate where the trek starts. From the Machame Park gate it’s a gentle climb up through dense rainforest to the Machame Camp.

Day 3 - Shira Camp

(12,355 feet/3,766 m), 3 miles/5km (4 to 6 hours)
The morning starts with a personal introduction to your trekking team. The hike is different today as the jungle gives away to zones of giant heather and moorland. If you have enough time you take a short hike to the Shira Caves after reaching camp.

Day 4 - Barranco Camp

(13,066 feet/3,983 m), 6 miles/10km (5 to 8 hours)
Leaving Shira camp in the morning you climb towards the main peak Kibo, with the western glaciers clearly visible across the rugged high-altitude desert of volcanic rocks and boulders. The trail ascends to the Lava Tower site (15000 feet / 4600m) before descending back down into Barranco Valley. Its 6 to 7 hours walking and the total ascent is only 110m total but having climbed much higher and dropped back down assists acclimatization.

Day 5 - Barafu High Camp

(15,239 feet/4,645 m), 5 miles/9km (5 to 8 hours)
The day starts with a challenging climb up the steep Barranco wall (some scrambling but not technically difficult) before dropping into the Karanga Valley where you take a break for lunch. If you decide to add an extra day it will be spent at Karanga Camp. Those on the regular itinerary will continue after lunch to Barafu Hut having hiked a total of 5 to 8 hours and ascended 650m. This is the highest camp and the push to the summit will begin at 11pm when you start getting your gear ready.

Day 6 - Uhuru Peak Altitude

(5895 m/19340 ft) Walking Distance: 3 miles/5 km ascent + 7 miles / 12 km descent (10-16 hours)
The day starts at midnight with the final push to the summit. It's a cold and grueling six hour hike to summit rim up a steep slope. The trail is doable but steep with many switchbacks. The summit rim is reached just about sunrise and it's a fairly level hike around the rim to Uhuru Peak the ultimate summit and highest point in Africa. Going down you will head back to Barafu Hut for a short nap and snacks before continuing down to Mweka camp (3068m / 10,065feet). One of the reasons for such a long day of trekking is to avoid problems with acclimatization and get you back down to a lower elevation quickly.

Day 7 - Mweka Camp to Moshi

From Mweka campsite it is a 4 to 5 hours descent through the forest to Mweka gate to collect certificates and meet the vehicle. Return to Moshi for the night and to have a final farewell dinner with your guides.
