8 Oct Rest day. Transfer to Aishi Hotel near Kilimanjaro.  Afternoon at leisure.  All meals at the hotel.
9 Oct Tanzania is a very poor country where the lack of basic infrastructure and minimal health and education facilities make life extremely hard for its people.  Foreign aid for development projects makes a huge difference and there will be an opportunity for those interested to visit a local project to see first hand the benefits that can be achieved. Expedition briefing for Mt Kilimanjaro climb.  All meals at the hotel.
10 Oct Transfer to the Machame Gate 1,500m. Meet up with our team of local guides, porters and cooks and commence the climb of Mt Kilimanjaro.   Climb through forest to 3,000m where our camp will have been set up (6 -7 hours).  Tented accommodation.  Meals prepared by our own cooks using our own food.

14 Oct Set off at midnight for the summit of Kilimanjaro.  Our aim is the highest point at Uhuru Peak 5,896m (approx. 7 hours).  It’s physically challenging staying at this altitude so after a brief rest to take photographs and absorb the moment its best to make an immediate return to Barafu camp (3 hours) and a decent rest.  After lunch descend on the shorter and different Mweka Route.  Reach Mweka camp 3,000m (4 hours) and set up camp.  Tented accommodation.  Meals prepared by our own cooks using our own food.
