Your Guide

Hey, I am Praise

Jambo! I grew up in a small village called Marangu, where Kilimanjaro was practically in our backyard. As a young boy, I loved exploring the surrounding waterfalls and mountain trails. Fast forward a few decades and I am now taking you, my guests, on a customized African adventure and guaranteeing you the best time possible in Tanzania. Whether it's a safari or a Kilimanjaro climb, my goal is for every guest to come as a client but leave as a friend! I hope to welcome you soon.

Day 2: Life on the slopes of Kilimanjaro (Moshi, Marangu)
In the first half of the day, we'll visit a nearby village to acclimatize and experience firsthand what it's like to live on the slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro. Colorful markets await, we'll head to one of the local chagga bars for a traditional brew, and don't forget your swimsuit to jump into the waterfall overlooking the valley! Later that day, a pre-climb briefing will be arranged where your guides will talk you through the upcoming trek, check your gear, and share some of their best tips and tricks for successfully climbing Africa's highest peak!

Day 3: First steps on the mountain (1.830 m - 2.700 m) (Mandara Huts)
After breakfast, you will be picked up from your lodge in Moshi and driven to the starting point at Marangu Gate. After registration, we will begin our journey to the summit on a well-maintained trail through montane forest, past dense rainforest and coffee plantations, while our guide leads you through the local flora and fauna. A short excursion to the nearby Maundi Crater will give you a magnificent view over Kenya and Northern Tanzania. Our first night will be spent on the mountain ar Mandara Huts - a group of dormitory-style wooden huts with solar-generated lighting and all necessary facilities, including water and toilets.

On your second day, you will embark on a hike that leads to the Horombo Hut via a somewhat steeper trail. The trail passes through more montane forest before transitioning into the moorland vegetation zone, where you will encounter rolling alpine meadows with huge heather trees. During the hike you will have spectacular views of Mawenzi - the second highest peak in the area. After about 6 hours of hiking you will reach Horombo Hut , where you will get hot water for washing, dinner and overnight stay. Horombo is a village of huts on a small plateau where we will have the opportunity to get together and reflect on our achievements so far!

During this trek you may experience mild symptoms of altitude sickness, but don't worry, your experienced guides will be on hand to give you tips and tricks in any way they can. From here, you'll have fantastic views of Kilimanjaro's summit before arriving at Kibo Hut - a hut with dry stone walls and dormitories. Rest up for the evening at Kibo Huts and prepare for your final ascent to the summit!

Head northwest through the massive scree and follow multiple switchbacks between the Ratzel and Rebmann glaciers until you reach Gilman's Point, where you'll have a great view of the crater. Your guide will set a leisurely pace and slowly progress to the summit as we hike along the crater rim for another hour before finally reaching the ultimate destination - Uhuru Peak! Congratulations! You have now made it to the "Roof of Africa." The weather conditions at the summit will determine how long you can stay there, but it is important that you start your descent within a good time to make sure you get enough rest at Kibo Hut.
