Day 1 Marangu

Nestled on the slopes of mighty Mt Kilimanjaro, this lively town boasts views of snow-capped mountains and is a great base for exploring the surrounding area.

Day 2 Machame Camp

Start with a pleasant stroll through the rainforest, where many species of brightly coloured birds can be seen, before setting up camp at Machame for your first night on Kilimanjaro.

Day 3 Shira Camp

Leave the rainforest and watch as the vegetation grows sparser on the path to the Shira Plateau. Spend the night camping on the edge of the plateau and be treated to a golden sunset over the snow-dusted peaks of Kibo.

Day 4 Barranco Camp

Continue through the rolling landscape and deep river valleys on the way to more rugged areas of the mountain.
