Mount Kilimanjaro

Safari Highlights

Day 7 of the climb will prove to be our most challenging as we ascend further than we have on any other single day - over 4,000 feet higher, to the summit. Rising before the new day begins we climb for 6 hours through thick scree, until we reach Stella Point, as the sun is rising. We cannot rest for too long though, and after a short time we move on again - this is important as it is extremely cold at this height. We continue along the rim for another 1 to 2 hours, eventually reaching Uhuru Peak - our ultimate goal, the top of Kilimanjaro. There is time to take pictures to savour this, your glorious moment of achievement - reaching the pinnacle of Africa. Following this we will begin our 3 hour descent back to Barafu Camp and then after a short rest, we descend again to Mweka Camp where we stay for the night. There is a 66% success rate for reaching the summit. Those who reach Stella Point and don't go any further up still receive a certificate and should be equally proud. Today's ascent to the peak of Kilimanjaro is likely to take around 8 hours and the descent will take around 6.
