Your Experience

Ever dreamed of climbing a mountain..? Voyage Privé is proud to bring you this exclusive, once in a lifetime experience of scaling Africa's highest peak, Kilimanjaro.

Few mountains can claim the grandeur, the breathtaking views of Amboseli National Park in Kenya, the Rift Valley, and the Masaai Steppe, that belongs to Kilimanjaro. It is the adventure of a lifetime!
Everyone from seasoned trekkers to first-time enthusiasts can scale the snowy peak,
and you will be accompanied by expert guides for the entire trip.

On day 7, having climbed one of the world's highest mountains, we think you deserve a rest! So we will fly you to Zanzibar for 4 nights at the idyllic Ocean Paradise Resort, situated on Zanzibar’s picturesque North East coast, overlooking the turquoise Indian Ocean.
The Marangu Route
Often considered the easiest and one of the most popular routes to the summit, the Marangu route is used by almost 40% of all climbers and uses comfortable mountain huts with solar power lighting. It is suitable for those adventurers who are not particularly experienced in the mountains, therefore classified as a moderate trek rather than a climb.

Although the trail can be a little crowded at certain times of the year, the views are beautiful and each day of walking progresses through a different climate zone, adding considerably to the interest of the trek.

The real highlight is the walk from Gillman’s point along the crater rim to Uhuru Peak, passing close to the spectacular glaciers and ice cliffs that occupy most of the summit area. The views as the sun rises behind Mawenzi on a clear morning are absolutely magnificent - The Rift Valley, Mt. Meru and the Masai Steppes stand out from the endless plains, almost three vertical miles below.

Your Itinerary

Day 1
Collection from Kilimanjaro airport, and transfer to Springlands Hotel located in Moshi Town close to the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro.  Here you will have a climb briefing and time to prepare and overnight.
Overnight at Springlands Hotel on a bed and breakfast basis

Day 2    
The National Park Gate (1,830 m.) lies at the edge of Marangu, which is an attractive village with many small coffee and banana plantations. After completing the entrance formalities, we climb up through an attractive and unspoilt forest to reach the clearing containing Mandara Hut (2,700 m.), a group of comfortable 'A' frame wooden huts. The largest cabin has a downstairs dining area and an upstairs dormitory and mattresses. Smaller huts sleep eight persons. The total capacity is sixty persons. Water is piped onto site from a spring above and there are flush toilets behind the main cabin. The volcanic remains of Maundi Crater are nearby and make a good afternoon excursion. An alternative is to rest and enjoy the beautiful forest. There is rich birdlife at the huts and monkeys are often seen as well. (3-5 hours walking)
Overnight on the mountain on a full board basis

Day 3
The first part of the walk is a steep ascent through the forest, but the path soon opens out into grassy moorland and in clear weather, there are good views of Kibo and Mawenzi peaks. We climb steadily through the moorland zone, containing giant heathers and occasional stands of groundsel, to eventually reach the hut complex at Horombo (3,720 m.). The buildings here are similar to Mandara Hut, but total capacity is one hundred and twenty persons. Water is piped from the stream behind the huts. There are platform toilets south east of the main hut, about eighty metres down the slope and flush toilets have been built within the complex of small huts. Sunrises and sunsets here are often spectacular and the site is close to the glaciated dome of Kibo. There is a real sense of being above the clouds here. (4-6 hours walking)
Overnight on the mountain on a full board basis

Day 4
We climb very gradually towards the lunar desert of the Saddle between Mawenzi and Kibo. The terrain changes to scree and there is a palpable sense of high altitude wilderness. We usually reach Kibo Hut (4,700 m.) at the bottom of the crater wall by midday. Kibo is a stone-built block house with a small dining area and a number of dormitory rooms leading off a main corridor. There are bunk beds and mattresses for about sixty people . There is no water here so one has to bring an ample supply from the 'last water' supply above Horombo Hut. Platform toilets are behind the hut. The remainder of the day is spent resting and eating in preparation for the final climb before a very early night! (4-5 hours walking)
Overnight on the mountain on a full board basis

Day 5
We will start our ascent by torchlight at about 0100 hours, aiming to be up at Gillman’s Point by sunrise. The initial climb is steep over loose volcanic scree, but there are some well-graded zig-zags and a slow but steady pace will have us up to Gillman’s (5,685 m.) in about five or six hours. We will rest there and spend some time taking in the sunrise. For those who are still feeling strong can make the three hour round trip from here along the crater rim to Uhuru Peak (5,896 m.), passing close to the spectacular glaciers that still occupy most of the summit area. The descent is surprisingly fast and we return to Horombo for the night. (11-15 hours walking)
Overnight on the mountain on a full board basis

Day 6
We retrace our steps with a pleasant moorland walk to Mandara and then a lovely forest walk to the National Park gates. The greenness and lushness of the forest is quite a stunning contrast to the summit day and it really makes you realise how varied the scenery on Kilimanjaro really is. (5-6 hours walking).  When you finish the climb, there will be a vehicle waiting to meet you and transfer you back to Springlands Hotel for overnight.
Overnight at Springlands Hotel on a bed and breakfast basis

Day 7
After breakfast you are transferred to Arusha town for lunch. Afternoon transfer to Arusha Airport for schedule flight to Zanzibar (flight booked by Ranger Safaris) + transfer to Ocean Paradise Beach Resort for 4 or 8 nights in standard garden room on half board basis.

Day 11 or 15
Transfer to Zanzibar airport.

Mountain Preparation

Physical Fitness - Although Kilimanjaro is not a technical mountain climb, it is a major challenge and the rigors of altitude should not be underestimated. Remember that Uhuru peak is 500m higher than Everest Base Camp. The pace of your ascent coupled with good acclimatization will help you on the climb but it is essential to be mentally and physically prepared before you start.

Regular hikes are one of the best ways to prepare, increasing frequency and length, as you get closer to the trek. All aerobic exercises such as cycling, running, swimming and aerobics are good for strengthening the cardiovascular system. Generally, any exercise that increases the heart rate for 20 minutes is helpful but don’t overdo it just before the climb.

Altitude and Acclimatisation
Altitudes are generally defined as follows:-
• High altitude - 2,400m – 4,200m
• Very high altitude - 4,200m – 5,400m
• Extreme altitude - above 5,400m (Uhuru peak is 5,895m)

During the trek it is likely that all climbers will experience at least some form of mild altitude sickness. It is caused by the failure of the body to adapt quickly enough to the reduced level of oxygen in the air at an increased altitude. There are many different symptoms but the most common are headaches, light-headedness, nausea, loss of appetite, tingling in the extremities (toes, fingers) and a mild swelling of ankles and fingers.

These mild forms are not serious and will normally disappear within 48 hours.

Photography - Cameras whether digital, video or film, need to be protected against the severe cold weather either in warm pouch or the interior pockets of your clothing. Do not keep in your backpack at higher elevations. A selection of lenses will aid the final results although weight and bulk will obviously influence your selection. A polarized or neutral density filter is recommended, as is slide film rather than print. Bring your own film, batteries and memory cards as these can be hard to find and expensive in Tanzania.

For digital equipment, check with the manufacturer’s specifications for temperature range (especially battery life), water tightness and general hardiness.  Remember that there are no electrical outlets on the mountain to use for charging equipment.
