    Wake up fresh and invigorated for the first leg of your journey to the foot of majestic Kilimanjaro. After eating a warm hotel breakfast, you’ll depart Moshi for the Machame Gate.

You’ll begin your first morning on the slopes of the mountain with a warming and hearty breakfast. Pack up your gear and venture across damp, cool heathland and temperate moorland dunes. Move across the rolling savannah among tall grasses and the otherworldly beauty of the Heather and Erica plains. Scramble across enormous boulders and emerge among volcanic rocks draped with dark green lichen. You’ll also experience increasingly higher altitudes to help your acclimatization process. After lunch, you’ll climb the lava-filled Shira Plateau then head for the Shira Camp. In the meantime, your porters and cooks will prepare a delicious meal in anticipation of your arrival.

Then take a rapid descent towards your campsite located in the Great Barranco Valley, where you’ll set up in a scenic campsite encompassed by massive valley walls and the stunning Kibo massif.

Then brace yourself for a 90-minute climb up the magnificent Barranco Wall, also known as the Breakfast Wall, after which you’ll continue along a clam trail until you reach the Karanga Valley.
