Days 1 - 2

Flight to Kilimanjaro International Airport in Tanzania then transfer to the hotel. The second day will be spent preparing for the trip; there will be a briefing, checking that the bikes are ready, and the sorting out of backpacks.

Days 3 - 7

It’s a five-day climb to our Basecamp. Overnight stay in the camp at 2980m above sea level, then afterwards a climb to Horombo, at 3700m above sea level. We’ll have a day of rest at this altitude with only a short climb during the day and then return to camp. We’ll reach the Kibo Hut on the 7th day and will then be at 4700m above sea level. The climbs may be manageable on a bike but sometimes we’ll need to push them.

Day 8

We`ll spend an further day acclimatising at Kibo hut – climbing up to Hans-Meyer-Cave – whilst mentally and physically preparing ourselves for summit day.

Day 9

The ascent will start shortly after midnight. The bike must be pushed and carried to the summit. We will proceed to the main peak: Uhuru Peak. After this we will be rewarded with a 2200-meter-long descent on gravel and single tracks. We cannot ride for around 100 metres, but for the rest we can use our bikes.

Day 10

Going down is sooo much easier! Awaiting us is another 2000m of downhill. We will know the route well from our ascent. Dinner and shower at the hotel.

Days 11 - 12

We have the whole day to pack and relax. Transfer to airport, departure is after midnight, arrival on day 16 in the afternoon/evening.

      Travel Information

Despite its height (2550 – 6350 ft.) the area around Kilimanjaro is still a malaria risk area. A prophylaxis is recommended. The tours are in the months of the dry season. The cool temperatures of the night (59°F) can rise up to between 85 and 95 °C during the afternoon.
This tour is also available as a private tour, with minimum of one participant.
Various extensions are possible. Obviously is the walk onto Africa´s highest mountain to Uhuru Peak 19430 ft. Or do another bike trip in nearby Usambara Mts. Travel to nearby Lake Manyara and Ngonrongoro Crater plus Serengeti with its large zebra and wildebeest migration offer outstanding safari experience. If you fancy a chill out at the sea, Zanzibar and unknown Mafia Island are best suited for that. 

Your warmly welcome in Tanzania

Brief information about the area

  • The state of Tanzania (United Republic of Tanzania) is located in the eastern part of central Africa, washed by the Indian Ocean, in which there are a number of islands, including the archipelago of Zanzibar. The capital is Dodoma.
  • On the territory of Tanzania are: 15 National Parks, the highest mountain in Africa - Kilimanjaro (5895 m), the largest freshwater lake in Africa - Lake Victoria.
  • Kilimanjaro International Airport, located between the cities of Arusha and Moshi, approximately 50 km south-west from the top of Mount Kilimanjaro.
  • Kilimanjaro is the highest point in Africa (5895 m), an extinct stratovolcano located in northeastern Tanzania, near the cities of Arusha and Moshi.
  • Mount Meru (4566 m), volcano - the second peak of Tanzania (after Kilimanjaro), is located in Arusha National Park, about 70 km south-west of Mount Kilimanjaro. 

But the most important thing in Tanzania is safari tours. We offer you 1-10 day safari tours (walking, cycling and car), as well as unique 6 days migration safari tours.

Since we are in the equatorial climate zone, there are two seasons: wet (the rainy season reigns tentatively in April-May and November) and dry for the rest of the year.
