Day 1

Today is your arrival day before your trekking adventure begins.

Day 2

You will drive to the attractive wooden village of Nale Moru for about two hours which include a stop to get permits in Marangu. After signing in and preparing the porters, you will begin the hike on a wide path that winds through fields of maize and potatoes before entering the pine forest.

You will then start to climb through a consistent track and attractive forest that shelters a variety of wildlife. The first camp is at the edge of the moorland zone with extensive views over the Kenyan plains.

After that, you will ascend to Uhuru Peak, which is the highest point in Africa. There are unbelievable views at every turn. You can take pictures at the summit to show your friends and family.

From there, you will descend and stop for lunch and a rest at Kibo before continuing the journey to the Horombo encampment. It will be by far the most difficult part of the trek with many switchbacks. Going slowly “pole pole” and an optimistic attitude will get you there.
