Mt Kilimanjaro Trek

Trek Details

Executive Excellence’s (EE) Mt Kilimanjaro adventure is an African Epic which allows you to summit the ‘Roof of Africa’ and experience the majesty of this great land. Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain in Africa and the tallest freestanding mountain known to man. It is a mountain where you can hike for more than 90 kilometres, gain 4000 metres in altitude, traverse rainforest, moorland, alpine desert, snow fields and ice cliffs, all virtually on the equator. This is a truly unforgettable and fascinating adventure. The cultural experience and physical challenge you will encounter makes Kilimanjaro a must. EE treks an eight day track to the summit which promises a much higher chance of summiting.

Day 1 Depart Brisbane.
Day 2 Arrive in Arusha. Transfer to evening’s accommodation and receive full briefing from guide.
Day 3 LEMOSHO FOREST CAMP – 2,829m Transfer to Lemosho trail where climb commences. Set off at a leisurely pace into the afro-montane forest. Lunch is taken on trail and camp is reached mid afternoon.
Day 4 SHIRA 1 CAMP – 3,505m – Ascend the forested slopes of Lemosho, through Podocarpus and Juniper forests, onto the heath zone and the moorland of the Shira Plateau.
Day 5 SHIRA 2 CAMP – 3,900m – After a relatively long hike and significant altitude gain, today is a short day and you arrive at Shira 2 Camp in time for lunch.
Day 6 BARRANCO CAMP – 3,950m -Although you end the day at the same elevation as when you started, this day is very important for acclimatization and will help your body prepare for summit day.
Day 7 KARANGA CAMP – 3,963m – You now have a relatively long day to Karanga Camp. The selection of Karanga Camp is strategic – significant time at altitude is essential for safe acclimatisation and in the  late afternoon you arrive in camp.
Day 8 BARAFU CAMP – 4,600m- Today is a half day walk through to Barafu. The last stage to Barafu Hut is quite steep, and as always you are advised to take it as easy as possible.
