Detailed Itinerary

Brief Itinerary (scroll down to link to the full itinerary)

TO AFRICA: Most airlines fly overnight from Canada to Europe where you’ll connect to another overnight flight into Kilimanjaro. Our Adventure Travel Specialists will be pleased to go over the options with you.

Day 1 & 2  - ARUSHA (2 nts hotel): Once you’ve cleared customs and collected your bag you will be greeted by our representative and then transferred to our carefully choosen 4-star hotel for a light dinner and a good night's sleep. Next day you will be met by your guide team for a full briefing including a full kit check.

Day 3 - 9 - KILIMANJARO (7nts first-class trekking): Drive from Arusha to the starting point of the Lemosho Trail. After checking in at the trailhead, start walking through the Afro-montane forest. In a short period cross a variety of eco-systems including the heath zone and the Shira Plateau. Civilized Adventures has arranged an extra acclimatization day where you will walk high and sleep low. On your final day ascend to the roof of Africa (19,341 feet above sea level). If your timing allows for it, we suggest you select your ascent date to be just prior to full moon: take advantage of great moonlight yet avoid the  big crowds. Start your final ascent around midnight to arrive at the crater rim or, depending on your fitness level, continue to the roof of Africa (Uhuru Peak) for sunrise. Your descent includes one more night on the mountain.

Day 10 - ARUSHA:  Transfer back to Arusha for a well deserved shower, and perhaps even a massage.

Day 11 - Depart:  Extend your stay with a customized Afican safari or a relaxing beach stay or transfer to the airport to fly home.
