Day 1: Nairobi - Arusha - Moshi
Pick up from your residential house will be as early as 0600am, then transferred to the city center where we catch up with the Special Shuttle Bus which goes to Tanzania. They normally leave at 0800am but due to the traffic jam we have to pick you early because the shuttles are scheduled to leave exactly at 0800am. The travel takes like 3 hours to arrive at the Namanga boarder, then we go through the migration process as well as for those who would like to obtain visa they can do so at the Boarder which is about 50usd. There after we proceed to Arusha in the next 2 hours, on arrival we will have  packed lunch as we head on to Moshi for the next 1.5 hours. On arrival we check in Qwine hotel in Moshi for dinner and overnight as we meet the Crews.

Day 2: Rongai Gate (1950m) – Simba camp (2600m). Hiking time: 3-4 hours.
The distance from Moshi to Rongai gate trail head is about 3 hours,accompanied by guide and porters before you begin your hike from the Nale Moru village. This gate is along Kenya and Tanzania at Loitoktok but since we dont have a good access from Kenyan side we have to access it via Tanzania. The small winding path crosses maize fields before entering pine forest, and then climbs gently through a forest. The trail is not at all steep, but is rather a gentle hike through beautiful country. The first night's camp is at Simba camp, at about 2,600 metres. There is a toilet and a wooden table with benches, but no hut. Water can be found just down the trail below samba camp.

Day 3 : Simba camp –Second Cave Hiking time 2-3hours
Habitat: Moorland Late Breakfast, enjoy the morning at Simba camp proceed with the hiking very slowly acclimatize your body until you reach Second cave (3450M ) for hot lunch. Afternoon relax at second cave with dinner and overnight.

Day 4: Second tarn Cave (2600m) - Kikelewa Cave (3600m)Hiking time: 3-4 hours.
After breakfast then continues up towards Kibo, reaching Kikelwa Cave at about 3600 metres. The views start to open up and you begin to feel you're on a really big mountain! Water is in the obvious stream below the cave, although you might have to wander downhill a way to find some. Overnight at 3rd Cave camp (Kikelewa Caves).

Day 5: Kikelewa Cave (3600) - Mawenzi Tarn camp (4330m)Hiking time: 3-4 hours.
Habitat: Moorlands. A short but steep climb up grassy slopes offers superb views of this wilderness area. The vegetation zone ends shortly before you reach your next camp at Mawenzi Tarn spectacularly situated beneath the towering spires of Mawenzi. Spend the afternoon acclimatizing and exploring the area.

Day 6: Mawenzi Tarn camp (4330m) - Kibo hut (4700m).Hiking time: 4 - 5 hours.
Habitat: Alpine desert. Continue ascending on the east side of Kibo crossing the saddle between Mawenzi and Kibo taking 4 to 5 hours to reach Kibo Hut. The remainder of the day is spent resting in preparation for the final ascent, which begins around midnight. Overnight at Kibo Camp.

Day 7: Summit Uhuru,Kibo hut (4700m)Uhuru Peak (5895m)Horombo hut (3720m).
Hiking time: 8 hours to reach Uhuru, 6 hours to descend to Horombo. Distance: 6 km's ascent - 21 km's descent. Habitat: Stone scree and ice-capped summit. You will rise around 23h30, and after some tea and biscuits you shuffle off into the night. This is where the going really gets tough. The first section of the trail consists of a rocky path to the Hans Meyer Cave (5150m), also a good resting spot. The path then zigzags up to Gillman's point (5 681m), which is located on the crater rim. This section is very steep with a lot of stone scree, requiring a great physical and mental effort. Probably the most demanding section of the entire route. Do the Kili shuffle and move slowly. From Gillman's Point you will normally encounter snow all the way up to Uhuru peak (5895m), the highest point in Africa. Total exhilaration and satisfaction - you madeit. Weather conditions on the summit will determine how long you can spend, taking photographs, before the 3-hour descent back to Kibo hut. After a short rest you gather all your gear for the ascent and head down to Horombo hut (3 hours) where you will overnight. The return to Horombo hut will seem surprisingly fast compared to the ascent. The total time spent walking on this day is around 14 hours, so be prepared for a very tough day. Later in the evening you enjoy your last dinner (with soft drinks and beer for sale at the camp office) on the mountain and well-earned sleep, filled with memories and stirring emotions.

Day 8: Horombo hut (3720m) - Marangu Gate (1980m). Hiking time: 6 hours.
Distance: About 27 km's. After breakfast you continue your descent (6 hours), passing the Mandara hut, down to the Marangu gate. At Marangu gate you sign your name and details in a register. This is also where successful climbers receive their summit certificates. Those climbers who reached Gillman's Point (5685m) are issued with green certificates and those who reached Uhuru Peak (5895m) receive gold certificates. You now drive back to Arusha  where your trekking tour ends with sweet memories and drop off to the hotel of your choice, or drop off to the {KIA}Airport to catch up with the flight for those who would like to fly back the same day.
