    Mti Mkubwa Camp

    Night 1

    Mti Mkubwa Camp

    Nestled in the trees of the forest, “Big Tree” camp will be your first home on the mountain. After only a day on the trail, you’re already at 2780m!

    Shira 1 Camp

    Night 2

    Shira 1 Camp

    After cresting the dramatic Shira Ridge, you’ll see why people rave about the views from the plateau where you’ll find Shira Camp.

    Shira 2 camp

    Night 3

    Shira 2 camp

    Across the Plateau from Shira 1 Camp, enjoy another night taking in the beautiful views of the Kilimanjaro Valley.

    Moir Camp

    Night 4

    Moir Camp

    Tonight will be quiet as Moir camp is a lesser-used site. It’s a great spot to relax and get acclimated to the elevation.

    Buffalo Camp

    Night 5

    Buffalo Camp

    No other route currently uses Buffalo Camp, so tonight it could be just your group and the wilderness on this side of the mountain!

    Rongai Third Cave Camp

    Night 6

    Rongai Third Cave Camp

    Another less-visited remote camp, this provides a peaceful place to rest.

    School Hut Camp

    Night 7

    School Hut Camp

    Set at the base of Kibo, you won’t see much of this site as you’ll want to go to sleep as early as possible in preparation for your midnight trek.

    Millennium Camp

    Night 8

    Millennium Camp

    Your final campsite on the mountain. At a much more comfortable lower altitude, you’ll see the trees are starting to appear again.
