Itinerary

DAY 1: Arrive at Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO) - Arusha

Upon your arrival at Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO). You will drive to Arusha town at your lodge where the rest of the day is at leisure. We will gather in the lodge for a pre-climb briefing and an equipment check.

Standard Accommodation: Ilboru Safari Lodge, (meals on bed and breakfast basis)
Comfort Accommodation: Four Points by Sheraton, (meals on bed and breakfast basis)
Luxury Accommodation: Gran Melia, (meals on bed and breakfast basis)

DAY 2: Arusha - Momella Gate - Miriakamba Hut (2,514 m).

Early morning after breakfast from your Lodge / Hotel in Arusha, we will transfer you to Mt. Meru at Momella Gate to start your trekking (1,500 m). The track soon passes some open grassland, with a good chance of seeing buffaloes and warthogs, and then continues as a steady climb through montane forest. We take lunch at, or near the Fig Tree Arch, which is big enough to drive a car through!

After lunch, the route continues through less dense forest, where there are an abundance of birds and monkeys. The black and white colobus monkeys are particularly fascinating to watch. By mid-afternoon, there are the first closer views of the towering cliffs and the Ash Cone. We reach Miriakamba Hut (2,514 m), situated in an idyllic grassy glade, in time to enjoy the last of the afternoon sun and beautiful views over the surrounding plains towards Kilimanjaro. [5-6 hours walking]

Overnight at Miriakamba Hut / Camp. Meals on full board basis

 

DAY 3: Miriakamba Hut - Saddle Hut (3,570 m).

The walk from Miriakamba Hut to the saddle below Little Meru is a short day but a steep and sustained climb all the way. We walk through attractive, open, and lush montane forest to reach the halfway point of Elephant Ridge. This has excellent views of the summit ridge and across most of the crater floor. Whilst resting, you might spot elephants or other animals from here.
The path continues uphill through giant heather and other moorland vegetation to reach Saddle Hut (3,570 m), where lunch is waiting for us. The afternoon is free to rest and enjoy the views.
The more energetic can make the short climb to the nearby summit of Little Meru (3,820 m) for superb views just before sunset. [3-6 hours walking]

Overnight at Saddle Hut / Camp. Meals on full board basis

DAY 4: Saddle Hut - Meru Summit Socialist Peak - Momella Gate (1,500 m) - Arusha town

An early start at around 2 a.m. to climb steeply to Rhino Point (3,800 m), and then continue along an undulating ridge of ash and rock to reach Cobra Point (4,350 m) around sunrise.
The views are stunning: the cliffs of the Crater rim, the Ash Cone rising from the Crater floor, Kilimanjaro floating on the morning clouds, and west towards the Rift Valley if the weather is clear.

The summit of Socialist Peak (4,566 m) is an hour more on a superb but often steep path.

The route back to Rhino Point in the sharp morning light on a narrow ridge between the sloping outer wall of the crater and the sheer cliffs of the inner wall is one of the most dramatic and exhilarating walks in Africa.
We rest, and have brunch at Saddle Hut before continuing the descent to Miriakamba Hut (2,514 m). [10-12 hours walking]
Note: The ridge between the summit and Rhino Point is not suitable for those suffering from vertigo. In icy conditions or in strong winds, it may be impossible for anyone to progress beyond Rhino Point.

We take the direct route down towards Momella through open grassland and mixed forest, with good chances of seeing wildlife. This trail has excellent views back towards the crater and over the plains of the National Park. We should reach Momella Gate before noon time. [2-3 hours walking] then road transfer to Arusha town for your overnight accommodation.

Standard Accommodation: Ilboru Safari Lodge (meals on bed and breakfast basis)
Comfort Accommodation: Four Points by Sheraton, (meals on bed and breakfast basis)
Luxury Accommodation: Gran Melia, (meals on bed and breakfast basis)

 

Day 5:Arusha - Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO)

You Can Leave Africa, but Africa Will Never Leave You!
After breakfast from your lodge / Hotel, you will drive to Kilimanjaro International Airport for your International flight.
Farwell, and welcome back to Tanzania!

What people say about us
I did the tour with 3 friends. It was a total of 10 days. It was indescribable. Our guide is a great guy, you can tell that he has been doing this job for years. He was able to show us all the animals. Lions, rhinos, hippos, giraffes, even the rare cheetahs and leopards. If you have never been on safari, you should not miss this experience. We felt very comfortable the whole time. The lodges including service, equipment and service were also first class. Hence 5 stars.

Lorenz Weissenberger
We have enjoyed our safari with SafariBaseTanzania so much that we are already thinking of going back. Everything has been very great, he has explained details of the nature of the place, the culture, everything that makes Africa unique. We have appreciated the local food as well as the entire lodging experience. It is an unmissable expedition, thank you for taking care of us in all the details, for the laughs and the good times.
