Your guide will arrive at the hotel this morning to hold a quick briefing, before taking you by vehicle to Kilimanjaro’s eastern entrance at the Marangu Gate (1,860m). After the quick formality of acquiring climbing permits, start trekking up to Mandara Hut (2,700m). The path winds through rainforest where you may be able to spot a variety of wildlife including monkeys and brightly coloured species of bird.

Whilst you will not be climbing as part of a group, there will be other people on the route who you can converse and swap motivational talk with. All the while you have the benefit of a private porter to do the heavy lifting!

By the time you reach the camp, the crew would have taken care of everything, pitching the tents, and preparing a simple but tasty lunch. Throughout the entire Marangu route, spend your nights in special huts, offering simple but comfortable accommodation, ideal for those who do not want to sleep in tents.

Early in the morning after breakfast, depart Mandara Hut to start the moderate trek towards the second-high altitude camp of Horombo Hut (3,720 m). The route take you through forest and open moorland and when you reach the camp, you will be treated to views of Kibo and Mawenzi volcanoes.

Several hours after lunch there will be an acclimatisation hike in the direction of Kibo Hut with a 200m gain in altitude, and then a hike back down to Horombo Hut where dinner will be prepared for you.  This is an easy trek with a slight gain in altitude designed to speed up the acclimatisation process and therefore hopefully increasing your chances of successfully reaching the summit.

After breakfast trek to the Kibo Hut (4,700 m) which takes you through a varied landscape of moorland forest and then alpine desert, before reaching ‘The Saddle’ between the peaks of Mawenzi and Kibo. The actual trekking is not too difficult but a sensible pace is recommended so as to maintain strength for the ascent on the summit the next day.

When you reach the camp you will be served lunch, after which the advice is to sleep as much as you can, avoid any strenuous activity and drink lots of water.

Make a very early start for the summit at Gilman’s Point which sits at 5,686 m on the crater rim. Continue to Uhuru peak which at 5,895 m is the highest point in the whole of Africa. The trekking will be moderate from a physical standpoint, but the altitude presents a more serious challenge for many. Each pair of climbers will be accompanied by their own guide who will monitor your stamina and mental resolve and of course encourage you along!

After your successful ascent to Uhuru Peak, you can descend to the nearest glacier if desired, before returning to Kibo Camp for a two-hour rest and then finally a descent to Horombo Hut (3,720m).
