Mount Kilimanjaro, at 5,895 meters (19,341 feet), is Africa’s highest mountain and the world’s tallest freestanding mountain; it is one of the Seven Summits. Mount Kilimanjaro is located in Tanzania, not Kenya, though it can also be seen from some of Kenya’s national parks, such as Amboseli and Tsavo West. The majority of people continue to believe that Mount Kilimanjaro is in Kenya, but in reality, it is actually in Tanzania, right on the Kenyan border, which is why some people mistakenly believe it to be there. Mount Kilimanjaro is located in Tanzania’s Mount Kilimanjaro National Park and is one of the most popular tourist destinations, drawing visitors from both Tanzania, Kenya and worldwide. However, because the hike can only be completed in Tanzania, Kenya only offers viewing points, not the actual hike. The highest mountain in East Africa is Mount Kilimanjaro, which stands free at a height of 5,895 meters above sea level. Many travelers from all over the world come to climb Mount Kilimanjaro, but not everyone is successful in reaching the summit due to the effects of heights.
After a hearty breakfast prepared at your Arusha hotel, we will depart for Mt Kilimanjaro with our packed picnic lunch. After arriving at the gate to register, we will meet the park rangers and potters there. Once registration is complete, a game ranger will be assigned to accompany you on our short hike, which will begin right outside the gate. The chef and potters will go ahead of us to set up camp, boil hot water, and prepare our meals for dinner during the 5- to 6-hour hike up to Bivouac Camp. This depends on how fit the visitors are.
Wake up early for breakfast on this day as we get ready for the next decent hike up as we leave the montane forest behind and move on to the next level of vegetation, known as the Moorland vegetation. At this point, as we get closer to the camping area, the trail flattens out until we begin to slant toward the Barranco valley, where the camp is located. These levels have picturesque views of more exotic vegetation plants, including Giant Lobelia, Groundsel, and others. We will unwind in the afternoon as we can clearly see the mountain walls to the east.
Today, after passing through the moor vegetation and entering the rocky, semi-desert landscape, we will leave Barranco Camp and head to Arrow Glacier Camp. We’re planning a five-hour hike. After our break for lunch, we continue our hike to the camp known as Arrow Glacier, which got its name from the area’s sharp stones. Lava Towers is one of the steepest parts of Kilimanjaro with sharp edges of stones. Dinner and sleeping at the campsite
After breakfast, we begin our fourth day hike as we get closer to realizing our dreams. For the next five hours, the scent of the glacier will keep us motivated, and this is when you can truly feel the cold of Mount Kilimanjaro. We also hike for one to two hours to the Ash Pit while the chef gets ready to make a delicious dinner for us.
Today is a special day. After a quick, hot breakfast, we set out on the hike to the top of Uhuru Peak. When everyone has arrived at the destination, there is a moment of silence and joy that comes only once in a lifetime. Depending on the weather, we will have a wonderful long time here. You will have photography and a warm welcome to another planet as we sign our booklist at the peak with great joy and happiness is an amazing experience. Following the festivities, we make our way down to the Mweka camp to continue the fun with our coworkers.
Get up early and enjoy the experience of a lifetime! Enter our waiting car to drive to Arusha for refreshments and relaxation after descending to the Mweka gate where we will receive our certificates and other gifts.
