Drive to Kilimanjaro National Park Machame Gate,

Hike to Machame Camp

We arrive at Mount Kilimanjaro National Park Gate from Moshi in an hour. 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 path up a peak. At lower elevations the trail can be muddy and slippery. Gaiters and trekking poles are a significant idea here. We continue a short distance until we reach the Machame Camp.

Lava Tower plays acclimatization role in our trip. 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 quite important for acclimatization and will help your body prepare for summit day.

DAY 6

Hike Barafu Camp to Summit, down to Mweka Camp

In the midnight (around 11:30 pm), we continue our way to the summit between the Rebmann and Ratzel glaciers. You head in a northwestern direction and ascend towards Stella Point on the crater rim. This is the most mentally and physically challenging part of the track. At Stella Point you will stop for a short rest and will be rewarded with the most brilliant sunrise you are ever likely to see. Faster hikers may view the sunrise from the summit.

From Stella Point, you may encounter snow all the way on your 1-hour ascent to the summit. Once at Uhuru Peak you have reached the highest point on Mount Kilimanjaro and the continent of Africa!
