Tanzania is a large country, with a varied climate. Generally, the long rains run from March to May - the temperature is warm and the humidity is high. June to October is the long dry season, and the short rains are in November and December, much lighter than the long rains. January and February are again dry (the short dry season) so this is another good time to visit.
Scale mighty Kilimanjaro during this expertly guided trek along the beautiful Lemosho Route. One of the longer treks, this route gives you more time to acclimatise to altitude. Spend seven nights on the mountain as you aim to reach Uhuru Peak - Africa's highest point - and enjoy a fully-serviced experience complete with mess and bathroom tents, joining a small group of no more than ten climbers.
Land in Kilimanjaro International Airport where you will be met and driven to your home for the night, Ngare Sero Mountain Lodge, just outside Arusha. The head guide of your climb will join you for a pre-trek safety briefing and kit check in full preparation for tomorrow. Enjoy a hearty meal and get a good nights sleep before your true adventure begins tomorrow.
In the morning, you'll be driven to the western side of Kilimanjaro and the Lemosho Gate. Here you will register and begin your climb, working your way through the Afromontane Forest at the base of the mountain. You will spend the next seven nights on the mountain climbing through varied landscapes from heather moorland to alpine desert for around seven hours a day- dipping up and down as you acclimatise to the altitude. The journey is truly spectacular incorporating some of the most renowned scenic parts of the climb such as the Shira plateau and the moraine ridge, which offers amazing views of the glaciers and glacial valleys.
The penultimate day on the mountain is your longest day during the climb, but probably the most rewarding. Waking early, you will leave camp and head for the 'roof of Africa' - Uhuru Peak. At 5,895m (19,341ft) this is the highest point in Africa, and seeing the sun rise over the horizon is a truly unforgettable moment.
Enjoy a leisurely breakfast for your last day on the mountain, and then start the final descent. Trek through the lower heathland and rainforest to Mweka Gate, where the altitude is 1,798m (5,900ft), and you will hike seven miles (11.3km) taking around five hours. You will be collected at the gate and driven back to Ngare Sero for some well earnt rest and relaxation.
