Description

Join us for an unforgettable hiking adventure on Mount Kilimanjaro! Known as “the Roof of Africa” and towering over its surrounding valleys at an astounding elevation of 19,340 feet, Kilimanjaro is one of the “7 Summits” of the world!

At Wildland, our approach is to get our guests ‘off the beaten path’ for a fuller, more novel experience of the world’s wilderness destinations. On this trip we follow the Rongai Route which provides wonderful solitude and exposes our guests to different environments and views of the mountain before merging with the more popular Marangu route. Trekking Kilimanjaro requires no technical ability, just hiking, while the main challenge is the elevation. We have created the ideal 10-day itinerary for optimal acclimatization and a high success rate of reaching the summit.

After our Kilimanjaro hike, we provide the option for an add-on Wildlife Safari and Cultural Tour. The Wild Africa Safari visits the Maasai, Datoga and Hadzabe tribes and Wildlife Safaris in Tanzania’s famous Serengeti, Lake Manyara and Ngorongoro National Parks.

*Itinerary Note: Wildland Trekking stands alone in providing a complete experience on Kilimanjaro. We have a well-tested acclimatization process to increase your chances of summiting. Your Kilimanjaro itinerary is not just a climb of the mountain but also includes an extra rest day after your travels in Tanzania to experience the local culture. Many companies economize by getting you in and out as quickly as possible, and that is the opposite of the Wildland approach.

BOOKING FLIGHTS

For our Kilimanjaro Trek you will need to arrive at Kilimanjaro International Airport (near Moshi, Tanzania, airport code JRO) on the day the trip begins, no later than 3 P.M. Your guide will rendezvous with you at the airport and transport you to our hotel for the first 2 nights, Kilimanjaro Wonders Hotel. The shuttle from the airport to the resort is usually 45 minutes-1 hour. Your return flight should be scheduled for the final day of the tour after 9 A.M.

Flights to and from Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO) are the guest’s responsibility. Multiple airlines operate connecting flights into JRO, but we recommend connecting through Amsterdam or Qatar. Most international airports in the U.S., Australia, Canada and Europe have flights that fly to these five connecting cities. The total travel time varies from 14 to 30 hours depending on the origin and number and duration of layovers.

Please Note: We recommend not flying with Kenya Airways because the connecting flight from Nairobi is often changed or cancelled, and they have a poor track record with losing luggage.

Minimum of 2 Guests

We require a minimum of 2 guests to confirm this trip. If a trip date is not confirmed yet, you can register and will be notified when the trip is officially confirmed. We recommend not making final travel arrangements until your trip meets the minimum number of guests and is confirmed.

In most cases, if a trip does not reach the minimum number of guests, you may choose to transfer to another trip date or another trip, or be refunded your payments in full. We make the final determination for these trips 45 days before the departure date.

Private Trips

Traveling in perfect company is a wonderful thing! With our private trip offerings you can book a trip exclusively for your group. Whether it’s with family, friends or colleagues, private trips are a fun and enriching way to explore the outdoors.

Private trip pricing is based on a sliding scale, depending on the number of people in your party. Rates are per person and do not include sales tax and national park fees (where applicable) or guide gratuity. Give us a call at 800-715-HIKE to get the ball rolling!

TRIP ITINERARY

TRIP ITINERARY

DAY 1

Today is arrival day. The Wildland team will pick you up from the airport and shuttle you to our hotel for the next 2 nights in the nearby city of Moshi. Here you can rest from your travels by the pool, in your room or at the rooftop viewing area and lounge. If we are lucky the clouds will dissipate and allow us our first glimpse of Mount Kilimanjaro during sunset. After we enjoy dinner together, your lead guide will conduct a full orientation meeting to review the itinerary specifics, gear & packing details, health considerations and to answer any questions. Be sure to drink copious amounts of water throughout today, as flying and traveling can dehydrate you. Self-care begins immediately and we want you to be as ready as possible for our trek up the mountain!

  • Hiking Mileage: 3.1 miles
  • Elevation Gain/Loss: Minimal
  • Trekking Duration: ~3 hours
  • Driving Time: 1 hour
  • Accommodations: Kilimanjaro Wonders Hotel

Today, after breakfast at our hotel, we will shuttle to the base of Mount Kilimanjaro to the village of Materuni. Here we will set out on a light hike to an amazing waterfall along the Mware River. Today’s hike helps with acclimatization while not being too strenuous after your long travels. Materuni Falls, born from melting ice and snow flowing from the top of the mountain, plunges over 220 feet! At these majestic falls we’ll enjoy a relaxing break, a swim if you like and a nutritious picnic lunch before heading back to the village. Once back at the village, we will visit a coffee plantation and see how they grow famous Arabica and Robusta coffee beans. You will be served a delicious cup of rich and aromatic coffee fresh as you can get it and served by the Chagga people, who hold the reputation of being the best farmers of Tanzania. After enjoying this cultural treat, we’ll head back to the hotel to relax before dinner. Get some rest; tomorrow our expedition begins!

Today is the official start of our expedition to climb Kilimanjaro! We head out on a roughly 3-hour drive to the village of Nale Moru (6,397′) where our trek begins. In Nale Moru, after meeting our entire crew and team, we will have a hot lunch. Our porters will get our gear organized and packed for the hike, and after everything is organized and ready we begin our trek. We’ll start hiking on a path that climbs gently and consistently through the beautiful, temperate forests that drape the foothills of Kilimanjaro. Along the way, we may have opportunities to view some wildlife: Colobus Monkeys are often abundant along with many species of birds, reptiles and gazelles. We continue hiking until we arrive at Simba Camp (8,500′) for the night. Facing North, we’ll have stunning views of the plains of Kenya while we enjoy a delicious meal and relaxing evening.

  • Lowest Elevation: 8,500 feet

Waking up on Kilimanjaro with Wildland means getting a hot drink of your choice delivered to your tent and a warm bowl of water to wash your hands and face. What a way to start the day! Then comes a nutritious breakfast to fuel our day’s activities. Today we head up the trail and immediately have outstanding views of Kibo Peak and the Eastern Ice Fields sitting on the crater rim. Arriving at our camp by lunch allows us to relax for a bit and give our bodies time to acclimitize before an afternoon walk to higher elevations, which furthers our acclimatization. Everything we do on the mountain is designed to prepare us for our summit bid. This includes non-stop self care, proper acclimitization practices and hiking “pole, pole”, translated “slowly, slowly” in Swahili.

We will briefly explore these caves (optional) before making our last push to camp and our awaiting lunch. Again, arriving to camp for lunch allows time to recuperate and relax before another afternoon acclimatization hike. The views from tonight’s camp are spectacular and the sunset not to be missed. As darkness falls the lights in small faroff Kenyan villages dot the landscape below us. Warm dinner and drinks are served before the nightly briefing and health check by your guide.

Upon our arrival at basecamp around mid-day, we will eat lunch and then rest in our tents before an early dinner is served around 6pm. After dinner, your guides will conduct a final briefing and health check. Then we turn in to get our final rest and sleep before our summit attempt. We will be waking up around 11:30pm to have some hot drinks and snacks before starting our ascent to the Kilimanjaro summit at Uruhu Peak!

We’ll continue hiking with our goal to reach the edge of the crater at Gillman’s Point (18,885′). Next we will traverse the crater rim to Stella Point (18,652′), here a few trails converge to start the final ascent to the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro, Uhuru Peak (19,340′). At the summit we’ll snap pictures and soak up the gratification of our achievement. Looking down on the valleys and forests surrounding Kilimanjaro as the sun rises, most hikers feel this is one of the most memorable half-hours of their lives. After having photos at Uhuru Peak, we’ll begin our decent back to basecamp. Upon arrival at basecamp, we will rest and have lunch before beginning our 3-hour (gentle) descent to Horombo camp (12,208′) along the famous and popular Marangu route. NOTE: This is a very long day and most guests are very tired upon reaching basecamp and then walking to Horombo.

Today is the last day of our trek on Mt. Kilimanjaro and it’s a long beautiful hike through a constantly changing landscape. Along the way, we stop at the Mandara Huts for a long break before continuing down. This tropical area often has groups of Blue monkeys and possibly the rarer Colobus monkeys. We’ll be descending to where the Marangu route begins/ends at the Marangu gate entrance of the Park. Here we’ll have a hot lunch upon our arrival. For those guests who made it to the summit of Kilimanjaro, climbed to Stella Point or Gilliman’s Point, you will collect official certificates from the Park before saying goodbye to your mountain crew; in classic Kilimanjaro style with songs and dancing!

Tonight, we again stay in Moshi at the Kilimanjaro Wonders Hotel and have one final celebratory dinner capping off this adventure of a lifetime!

PORTER TEAM

Anyone who has climbed to the summit of Kilimanjaro could not have achieved this goal without the tremendous support and effort made by local porters and guides.  It takes a team not an individual to reach the summit of Africa and we have the upmost respect and fondness of every member of our expedition teams.  Throughout Kilimanjaro’s climbing history and sadly still today, some porters do not receive the support and care from certain segments of the industry that they tirelessly deliver climb after climb to adventure travelers from all over the world.

The mistreatment of porters can be a troubling challenge in the climbing industry. We are proud to be an approved Partner company with the Kilimanjaro Porters Assistance Project – KPAP – and the International Mountain Explorers Connection – IMEC – Partner for Responsible Travel Program.

We voluntarily participate with KPAP’s monitoring activities and allow KPAP to evaluate the treatment of our porters on all of our climbs.  By climbing with us you can be assured that your porters are well taken care of.

KPAP also helps to improve the working conditions of porters by:

  • Lending donated clothing at no charge to the mountain crew for use while climbing
  • Educating the public on porter working conditions and climbing responsibly
  • Providing industry guidelines for proper porter treatment
  • Offering educational classes to porters

Please consider supporting KPAP by making a financial contribution to enable them to continue with their Partner for Responsible Travel Program and free services for porters. To make a donation, please visit https://kiliporters.org/donate-now/

SAFETY CONSIDERATIONS

Your safety is our top priority. This trek is led by professional hiking guides (U.S.-based and local) along with additional support staff. All of our guides are wilderness-certified first responders or EMT’s, each with years of guiding and wilderness experience. We’ve developed comprehensive risk management protocols that our guides adhere to in case of an emergency, and all tours carry a satellite phone. If you have any further questions about safety, please contact us at 1-800-715-HIKE (4453) for more information.

In the interest of your safety, it’s important to refer to the Center for Disease Control website for up-to-date recommendations on immunizations before your trip. We also recommend consulting with your physician before traveling abroad.

GUIDES

Your tour will be led by trained, experienced professionals with solid guiding backgrounds, years of personal wilderness and hiking experience, medical certifications, and a passion for leading people into breathtaking landscapes. Check out our Meet Our Team page for staff bios.

GUIDE WORKING PARAMETERS

Guides are required to take 8 hours off each 24-hour period to sleep, recuperate, take personal/down time…etc. In addition, as part of the 8 hours off they must sleep/rest or be in their tents/rooms uninterrupted for a minimum of 5 hours each night. We ask guests to respect these requirements and to not interrupt guides’ off time and sleep time unless there is a true emergency.

GROUP SIZE AND AGE RESTRICTIONS

  • 5 and older to join private tours, with final approval and specific logistical requirements (such as porter or stock assist) determined on a case by case basis

TRIP INSURANCE

For your protection, we strongly recommend the purchase of field evacuation, repatriation, and medical trip insurance. International travel is expensive, and the modest cost of trip insurance is a sound investment in an uncertain world.

If you wish to purchase trip insurance, we recommend IMG/iTravelinsured. They are one of the world’s leading providers of travel insurance.

For information on recommended IMG/iTravelinsured policies please click here.

For even greater information, or if you simply prefer communicating with a real, live person, feel free to contact our exclusive agent Michael Bennett. Michael will help you identify the best product for your needs, and there is no cost associated with his assistance. You may contact him at:

Email: WildLandTrekking@EasyToInsureME.com
US by Phone: 877-305-9083
Direct/International by Phone: 702-448-3664

If you already have insurance or wish to purchase from anyone other than IMG/iTravelinsured, we recommend careful consultation with the provider to ensure appropriate coverage. This is because many providers have a number of policy exclusions.

If you secure an insurance policy please bring a copy of it to provide to your guides at the orientation meeting.

WEATHER ON KILIMANJARO

The temperatures on Mount Kilimanjaro vary tremendously from hot and exposed to quite cold. The trek from the national park entrance to the summit is the climatic equivalent of traveling from Brazilian rain forests to the Arctic in just a couple days. We will hike through 4 different ecological zones, representing a massive range of temperatures as we ascend toward the summit. Temperatures will be warm in Moshi.

Moses and Caesar and all of the crew were wonderful to be with on this trek. We couldn’t have asked for a more attentive leader and guide. They were very encouraging and I cant imagine that I could have made it to Uhuru Peak without them.
