IBD Adventures Kilimanjaro Itinerary, Aug 23 and 24: Fly into Kilimanjaro Airport, transportation to Marangu Hotel, please arrive on the 23rd or early 24th, this will give you some down time before the trek. During this time we will review your equipment, review the route and trek ahead, and take some time for the team to get to know each other.
Aug 25: Marangu to Rongai by car. This takes about 3 hours. Register at the Naremoru Ranger post (2000 meters), then hikes to Simba camp at 2650 meters. The trek takes about 4 hours. The first hour is through cultivated fields, and then the path branches right into the rainforest. This is a very short section of forest and one soon emerges onto the alpine zone where Simba camp is located. Beautiful views of Kibo and Mawenzi may be had.
