    Stop At: Keys Hotel Travel & Tours, Uru Road,, Old Moshi 0933, Tanzania
    Day 1 Arrival

    Arrival at Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO), where you will meet an DODO GROUP TANZANIA representative, and transfer to the hotel under the rate. The hotel will provide all the essentials for a comfortable stay: cozy rooms, hot water, polite staff, a swimming pool, and Internet access. In the evening there will be a briefing with our managers, who will also make sure you are ready to begin the climb.

    Day 2: Marangu Gate- Mandara Hut

    Stop At: Mount Kilimanjaro, Kilimanjaro National Park 40000 Tanzania
    Day 2 Trekking From Marangu Gate To Mandara Hut

    A guide and a mountain support crew will arrive at the hotel in the morning in order to meet you and hold a quick briefing, after which you will travel by vehicle to Kilimanjaro National Park's eastern entrance: Marangu Gate (1,860 m). After the quick formality of acquiring climbing permits and registering with the search and rescue service, the group will start trekking up to Mandara Hut (2,700 m). The trekking route includes passage through the rainforest (where tropical showers are highly probable), so we recommend you take not only spare clothes, but also your raincoats. When you reach the camp, our mountain support crew will take care of the necessities, pitch the tents, and prepare lunch.

    Throughout the entire Marangu route, you will be spending your nights in special huts. They offer a great alternative to those who do not want to sleep in tents.

    This will be your first day at this altitude, so it is strongly recommended you heed the following instructions from this point on:

    Abstain from consuming alcohol and caffeine

    Drink over 4 liters of bottled water daily (little by little, frequently)

    Take a Diamox pill to help alleviate symptoms of altitude sickness. Most mountain climbers take Diamox in the morning, before they start their ascent, in order to reduce discomfort associated with altitude sickness. We recommend you consult your doctor prior to the trip in case of potential allergies.

    At night you may experience discomfort associated with acclimatization to the high altitude: because of a reduction in your waking breathing pattern, your body gets less oxygen than during the day. Taking altitude into account, you may therefore start feeling sick and have a headache. Pay attention to your own body and tell your guide if you start feeling any symptoms of altitude sickness.

    Change in Elevation: Marangu Gate (1,860 m) — Mandara Hut (2,700 m)

    Hiking distance: 11 km

    Hiking time: 5–7 hours
    Duration: 4 hours

    Meals included:
    • Breakfast
    • Lunch
    • Dinner
    Accommodation included: Hurt/Lodge

    Day 3: Mandara Hut-Horombo Hut

    Stop At: Mount Kilimanjaro, Kilimanjaro National Park 40000 Tanzania
    Day 3 Trekking From Mandara Hut To Horombo Hut

    Early in the morning after breakfast, the group will depart Mandara Hut to start a moderate trek towards the second high altitude camp: Horombo Hut (3,720 m). When you reach the camp on this day, you will be treated to views of two volcanos at once: Kibo and Mawenzi.

    Several hours after lunch you will have to complete an acclimatization hike in the direction of Kibo Hut with a 200-meter gain in altitude, and then hike back down to Horombo Hut where dinner will be prepared for you.

    Note: The acclimatization hike is an easy trek with a slight gain in altitude done in order to speed up the acclimatization process. You should take the acclimatization hikes very seriously. They help increase your chances of successfully summiting Kilimanjaro and save you from the consequences of altitude sickness.

Continue around the rim (which will take about two hours if you are fit) to Uhuru Peak (5,895 metres (19,341 ft)) the highest point in Africa.

    Day 5 Trekking To Uhuru Peak and Descent To Horombo Hut

    Night departure from Kibo Hut (4,700 m) and the start of your trekking to Kilimanjaro's summit: Uhuru peak (5,895 m). The trekking will be moderate from a physical standpoint, but the altitude presents a much more serious problem. For the entire length of the trekking each pair of climbers will be accompanied by their own guide, who will be monitoring your stamina and mental resolve. After your successful ascent to Uhuru Peak, you can descend to the nearest glacier if desired. Then you will return to Kibo Camp and after a two-hour rest continue your descent to Horombo Hut (3,720 m).

    Note: Don't forget that 90% of all accidents occur during the descent, including all broken arms and legs. Please pay attention to your feet, as there is a high risk of damaging your toenails.
