WHAT YOU GET
7 nights accommodation
2 nights in Hotel, 5 nights in Twin Share Tent
Our accommodation on the ascent along the Rongai pass will be in the true spirit of mountain climbing, but with a little help from our friendly porters, who will make sure your two-person tents and campsite are prepared each evening. Camping means a little bit of getting back to nature, so this isn't 5-star luxury but it will have everything you need for the journey. And of course, one heck of a view every morning.
20 included Meals
7 Dinner, 7 Breakfast, 6 Lunch
Every breakfast, lunch and dinner while you are with us is taken care of. We'll make sure you get all the nutrition needed for climbing, with delicious meals to help keep the sustenance up.
Team
Expert Local Guides and Porters
A highly trained Trip Manager who brings your adventure to life. An expert driver who knows foreign roads better than Google Maps. Local Guides who make tourist traps a thing of the past. This is your team. Smart, friendly, fun, and integral to everything we do.
Transport
Included transfers from and to the airport
Africa isn't the easiest land to traverse, but we know this wild continent better than most. Whether it's speedy internal flights, air conditioned coaches or open top safari vehicles, our included transport will speed you from A-B in comfort, safety and style.
Your group
Travel with other 18-35 year olds from around the world
Our trips are exclusively 18-35. This means you'll be travelling with people just like you, from all over the world- laughter and friendships always guaranteed.

It's not the mountain we conquer, but ourselves, right? In that case, think of Kilimanjaro as your personal adventure and once-in-a-lifetime chance to really get to know what you're made of. In this small group trip run by an in-country trip operator with Local Guide, you'll trek in the footsteps of the world's explorers up the Rongai route to the Uhuru Peak, past craters, caves and even snow, in an unforgettable 8 day journey.
Travel is best shared. This is a small group adventure of 12-30 people, aged between 18-35 exclusively, giving you the perfect balance of new friends to travel with and access to even more authentic experiences.

DAY 1 - Arrive Moshi Town
Kilimanjaro Int'l Airport
Kilimanjaro awaits! You'll be collected from Kilimanjaro airport and transferred to Springlands Hotel located in Moshi Town, close to the foothills of Mt Kilimanjaro. This trip is run by a local operator rather than Contiki, so here you'll meet your Local Guide in place of a Contiki Trip Manager. You'll have a climb briefing, dinner, and time to prepare before bunking down for the night.
Moshi Town
Stay
Springlands Hotel (or similar)
DAY 2 - Moshi Town to Simba
Moshi Town
Your day starts early with breakfast and a briefing. We'll drive through picturesque villages and coffee plantations for 4-5 hours until we reach the attractive wooden village of Nale Muru (1,950 m/6,398 ft). After signing in and preparing the porters, we begin the hike on a wide path winding through fields of maize and potatoes, then enter a pine forest. The climb ahead is gentle but consistent, through attractive forest that shelters a variety of wildlife. 
Simba
As the forest begins to thin, we arrive at Simba Camp (2,600 m/8,530 ft) near the 'First Cave' at the edge of the moorland zone, with extensive views over the Kenyan plains.
Stay
Simba Camp
DAY 3 - Simba to Kikelewa Camp
Simba
Load up on breakfast, because today's hike will be approximately 6-7 hours walking. This is a steady hike with spectacular views of the eastern ice fields and Kibo.
Kikelewa Camp
We spend the night resting up at camp, at an altitude of 3600 m.
Stay
Kikelewa Camp
DAY 4 - Kikelewa Camp to Mawenzi Tarn
Kikelewa Camp
After breakfast we'll take a short and steep morning climb of 3-4 hours.
Mawenzi Tarn
We have the afternoon to acclimatise and time to explore local surroundings. Tonight is spent at camp at an altitude of 4290 m.
Stay
Mawenzi Tarn Camp
DAY 5 - Mawenzi Tarn to Kibo Hut
Mawenzi Tarn
Today we cross the incredible lunar desert, approx 5-6 hours walking, to reach Kibo hut.
Kibo Hut
We have the rest of the day to acclimatise and flop into bed for an early night. We'll camp at an altitude of 4750m.
Stay
Kibo Hut Camp
DAY 6 - Kibo Hut to Horombo Huts via Gillmans Point and Uhuru Peak
Kibo Hut
The peak is calling, and we're ready! The goal is to climb before dawn so that we can reach Uhuru Peak shortly after sunrise. Rise and shine at midnight (yep!) to a light breakfast and prepare for your summit ascent. We do the beginning of this climb in the dark with headlamps or flashlights, and you need some warm layers to ward off the chilly morning frost. The beginning of the climb is over loose volcanic scree, but by way of some well-graded zig-zags we'll reach Gilman’s Point on the crater rim at 5,861 m/18,640 ft between 5 and 7 AM. Slowly slowly, or, 'pole pole', and an optimistic attitude will get you there!
Gillman's Point
Here, views of the fabled crater and it's icecaps will greet you. You've made it past the first hurdle! Another 2 hours of hiking along the crater rim near the snows takes you to Kilimanjaro’s true summit, Uhuru Peak, by 9 AM.
Uhuru Peak
This is Africa’s highest point, and you would have to travel more than 3,000 miles toward the Himalayas to find a higher peak. You've done it! Be sure to get some snaps here at the summit to post on your Insta. After catching our breath at the summit, we'll start the descent back.
Horombo Huts
We descend back to the Kibo Hut, have lunch, rest, collect our things, and recross the saddle to the Horombo Huts. Time to eat dinner and get some well-deserved sleep: this was, by far, the most difficult part of the trek.
Stay
Horombo Hut Camp
DAY 7 - Horombo Huts to Moshi Town via Mandara Huts
Horombo Huts
Wake up, pack, and descend through the moorland to the Mandara Huts.
Mandara Huts
We'll stop for lunch here then continue our triumphant recessional down through lush forest to the park gate, which we should reach around 2 or 3 PM. Remember to say goodbye to your guides, cooks, and porters since you will be leaving them here.
Moshi Town
A vehicle will take you back to the Springlands Hotel or similar hotel in Moshi, where it is definitely time for celebration!
Stay
Springlands Hotel (or similar)
DAY 8 - Depart Moshi Town
Moshi Town
It may be the end of the trip, but your memories (and calf muscles) will be forever changed! Say goodbye to your trip-mates and give yourself a huge pat on the back. The morning transfer takes you to Kilimanjaro International Airport for a final goodbye.
