Day 01 :

Drive from Arusha to Londorossi Park Gate (2250 m, 2 hours).

Walk along forest trails to Mti Mkubwa (big tree) campsite, (2750 m, 3 hours).

Day 02:

The trail gradually steepens and enters the giant heather moorland zone. Several streams are crossed then it gains the Shira Ridge at about 3600 m and drops gently down to Shira 1 camp located by a stream on the Shira Plateau (3500 m, 5 hours). This campsite could be omitted.

Day 03:

stream (3850 m, 1.5 hours). A variety of walks are available on the Plateau making this an excellent acclimatization day.

Day 06:

An early start for the ascent to the rim of the Kibo Crater between the Rebmann and Ratzel Glaciers, (4 hours); the last section before the rim can sometimes be snow-covered and an ice-axe or ski stick is useful for balance. From here a further hour leads to Uhuru Peak, from where there are often fine views of Meru to the west and the jagged peak of Mawenzi to the east. Descend to the Barafu Hut for a rest and lunch before continuing on down to camp at Mweka Hut in the giant heather zone on the forest edge.
