8 dagen vanaf € 2.665,- (excl. vlucht)

Food

  • All breakfasts, 6 lunches and 5 dinners included.  All meals during the climb are included. Please allow about GBP40 (USD65) for the meals not included, while in hotels. On trek the emphasis is on a varied and well-balanced diet with a greater amount of fresh fruit and soup to maximise the daily intake of fluids. Vegetarians are well catered for but please inform us before departure of any special dietary requests. Please note that in Tanzania the availability of certain specialised products for restricted diets, e.g. gluten-free or dairy-free, is minimal or non-existent and we strongly recommend you bring these specialised dietary items from home. The menu has a high liquid and carbohydrate content; the two important elements for successful climbing. At higher altitudes, stimulants (such as coffee) and less digestible foods (such as meat) are not recommended. Our evening meal at the highest camp on Kilimanjaro is a meatless stew as our experience shows this to be the ideal preparation for the summit day. At mealtimes a selection of hot drinks are available. Soup is served twice daily. *Daily Meals* Bed Tea - tea or coffee served in your tent. Breakfast  - consists of seasonal fresh fruit (mango/banana/watermelon), porridge, cooked eggs, sausage, bacon and toast. Energy snacks are provided for the daily walk such as biscuits, bananas, and chocolate bars. Lunch  -  either a packed lunch on longer days or, more usually, a hot lunch served in camp by a small team who have raced ahead of the clients. A hot lunch typically consists of soup, bread or pancakes, cheese, tuna, jam, peanut butter, pasta salad and cake. Afternoon tea  -  served in late afternoon. It is an opportunity to drink lots of hot drinks and snack on peanuts or popcorn. Dinner  -  the main meal of the day and always consists of three courses; soup and bread, followed by the main dish, which could be rice, potatoes or pasta with fish, meat or vegetables, and is followed by a dessert often of fruit. Summit snacks - Whilst we provide enough food for the climb, we recommend that you bring some of your favourite snacks, and keep them for the summit day. This is because the summit day is a long and tough climb and having your favourite snacks can give you a very welcome boost. *Water* Whilst the water we provide on Kilimanjaro is suitable for drinking you may wish to be extra safe and treat it with your own water purification tablets. Biox Aqua drops or tablets are the best available alternative for sale in the UK as they kill giardia and cryptosporidium.

Route 8 daagse rondreis Kilimanjaro Climb Rongai Route

With its gentle gradient and sense of unspoilt wilderness, the Rongai Route approaches Kilimanjaro from the north and is less crowded than the most popular trails. We trek through farmlands, forest and alpine moorlands as we approach the beautiful summit cone. This route allows an extra day for acclimatisation under the imposing spires of Mawenzi, before the arduous final ascent. The final climb begins in darkness but our reward is an incomparable dawn vista over the sweeping East African plains.

  1. Dag 1 - Start Marangu.
  2. Dag 2 - Begin ascent through Rongai Forest (2600m).
  3. Dag 3 - Climb to Kikelewa moorland (3600m).
  4. Dag 4 - Steady ascent beneath Mawenzi (4330m); afternoon acclimatisation.
  5. Dag 5 - Cross lunar desert of the 'Saddle' to Kibo, at the bottom of summit cone (4750m).
  6. Dag 6 - Early start to reach Gillman's Point in time for sunrise over the crater rim; on to Uhuru Peak, the highest point in Africa (5895m). Descend to Horombo (3720m).
  7. Dag 7 - Continue descent to Mandara and Marangu.
  8. Dag 8 - End Marangu.
