Day 3: Londorossi Gate to Mti mkubwa camp
• Distance: 6 km

The 4WD will take you further up to Lemosho glades, thereafter you can walk for about 2-3hrs to Mti Mkubwa Campsite (9,200ft) Dinner and overnight at the camp

Day 4:

We continue on the trail leading out of the forest and into a savannah of tall grasses, heather, and volcanic rock draped with lichen beards. As we ascend through the lush rolling hills and cross several streams, we reach the Shira Ridge before dropping gently down to Shira 1 camp. The view of Kibo from across the plateau is amazing. Dinner and overnight.

Day 5: Shira Camp 1 to Shira 2
• Distance: 7 km
• Hiking Time: 3-5hours
• Habitat: Moorland………….

We explore the Shira plateau for a full day. It is a gentle walk east toward Kibo’s glaciered peak, across the plate which leads to Shira 2 camp on moorland meadows by a stream. A little used site on the base of Lent Hills. A variety of walks are available on Lent Hills making this an excellent acclimatization opportunity. Shira is one of the highest plateaus on earth. Dinner and overnight.

Day 6:
• Shira 2 through Lava Tower Rock to Barranco Camp
• Distance: 13 km
• Hiking Time: 7-9 hours
• Habitat: Semi Desert…….

From the Shira Plateau, we continue to the east up a ridge, passing the junction towards the peak of Kibo. As we continue, our direction changes to the South East towards the Lava Tower, called the "Shark's Tooth." Shortly after the tower, we come to the second junction which brings us up to the Arrow Glacier at an altitude of 16,000ft. We now continue down to the Barranco camp at an altitude of 13,000ft. Here we rest, enjoy dinner, and overnight. Although you end the day at the same elevation as when you started, this day is very important for acclimatization and will help your body prepare for summit day. Dinner and overnight at the camp

Day 7:
• Barranco Camp to Karanga Camp
• Distance: 6 km
• Hiking Time: 3-5 hours
• Habitat: Alpine Desert……..

After breakfast, we leave Barranco and continue on a steep ridge passing the Barranco Wall, to the Karanga Valley campsite. This is a short day meant for acclimatization. Hot Lunch is served and spend the rest of the afternoon resting. Dinner and overnight at the camp

Day 8: Karanga Camp to Barafu Camp
• Distance: 5 km
• Hiking Time: 3-5 hours
• Habitat: Alpine Desert

After breakfast, we leave Karanga and hit the junction which connects with the Mweka Trail. We continue up to the Barafu camp. At this point, you have completed the South Circuit, which offers views of the summit from many different angles. Here hot lunch is served, and rest while waiting for dinner, and prepare for the summit day. The two peaks of Mawenzi and Kibo are to be seen from this position. Dinner and overnight at the camp

Day 9 : Barafu Camp to Summit and then Mweka Camp
• Distance: 6 km ascent and 6 km descent
• Hiking Time: 5-8 hours ascent / 2-4 hours descent
• Habitat: Arctic………..

Very early in the morning, we continue our way to the summit between the Rebmann and Ratzel glaciers. You head in a northwesterly direction and ascend through heavy scree towards Stella Point on the crater rim. This is the most mentally and physically challenging portion of the trek. At Stella Point (18,600 ft.) 5657M), you will stop for a short rest and will be rewarded with the most magnificent sunrise and view you are ever likely to see (weather permitting). From Stella Point, you may encounter snow all the way on your 1-hour ascent to the summit. At Uhuru Peak, you have reached the highest point in Africa, Mount Kilimanjaro. From the summit, we now make our descent continuing straight down to the Previous camp site, Barafu for lunch. You will want trekking poles going down to Mweka Camp which is situated in the upper forest and mist or rain can be expected in the late afternoon. Later in the evening, we enjoy our last dinner on the mountain and a well-earned sleep.

Day 10: Mweka Camp to Mweka gate check out point.
• Distance: 9 km
• Hiking Time: 3 hrs
• Habitat: Rain Forest……….

After breakfast, we continue the descent down to the Mweka Park Gate to receive your summit certificates. At lower elevations, it can be wet and muddy sometime. Gaiters and trekking poles will help. Shorts and t-shirts will probably be plenty to wear (keep rain gear and warmer clothing handy). A vehicle will meet you at Mweka gate to drive you back to hotel in Moshi/Arusha. Dinner and celebrations at Kibo Palace.

Consea and his team helped 7 of us to climb Kilimanjaro in May 2016. His team were well-organized and motivating. Consea met with us several times leading up to the trip in order to select the route with highest success rate, help us prepare our equipment and to ensure our training was appropriate. This ensured that our whole team summitted the mountain.

Considering the elevation and remoteness, the facilities and food were very good. Good quality tents were provided, and we had a mess tent to eat in at meal-times.

I highly recommend Consea and Summit Trails.
