You can rent gear once you reach Moshi but it tends to be expensive and the quality is not great. If you request beforehand we may be able to help you with some supplies free of charge. A good pair of hiking boots are important for the final climb as they help to keep your feet warm and provide adequate ankle support. Tennis shoes are sufficient on the other days of the trek. Tipping is an important part of the culture in Tanzania. Please review our tipping guidelines. Its not required to bring any money on the mountain and you can give tips at the hotel at the end of the climb.
The hotel has a lock box where you can store valuables during the climb.

Our treks are all-inclusive. We cover accommodation, food, park fees, permits, and many other costs, as a means of making your adventure as stress-free and convenient as possible. Once you get on the mountain there are no opportunities to spend any money. Your guide should be able to arrange a phone call or to get a message relayed in the case of emergency. Don't expect any communication options although it is possible you will have cell signal in some locations. Some climbers may actually finish the climb ahead of schedule and get back to Moshi early.
Its also the case that sometimes climbers either have problems with altitude or decide to come down earlier for other reasons. The reason behind this is that our costs are the same regardless of when you end the climb. So even if you are climbing less days than scheduled keep in mind that we have already paid the staff, purchased, food and rented gear for all the days you were supposed to be on the climb.

8 Day Marangu Route Climb Itinerary | Peak Planet
Upon registering with park authorities, our climb will officially commence with a four-hour walk to the Mandara encampment. We will pass through a thick rainforest zone, where there is a high chance of rain in the afternoon. We will spend the night at Mandara Hut 2,m. Rooms in the huts are on quad sharing and bathrooms are available with running water. Enjoy stunning views of the mountain peaks at this altitude. We will spend the night at Horombo Hut 3,m , which lies in a valley surrounded by giant lobelia and groundsel, flora which are characteristic of this semi-alpine zone.
Bathrooms are available with running water. The vegetation thins out as we enter the desert-like alpine zone approximately 4,m and, once we cross the saddle, Kibo peak comes into view. We will reach Kibo hut around 1pm and the rest of the day will be given to rest and refuel before the summit push. Your guide will wake you at 11pm so you can get your gear ready and prepare for the summit push which will start at midnight. From Gilman's Point, it is a further two-hour round trip along the crater's edge to Uhuru Peak, the highest point in Africa.
From the summit, it is downhill all the way to Horombo Hut where we will spend our last night on the mountain. From here, you will be transferred to your hotel in Moshi. You will enjoy a farewell dinner with your guides.
Day 7 After breakfast, transfer back to Arusha town or Kilimanjaro airport as per your requirement. Why is a guide necessarily? We then return by vehicle to Arusha, to the comfort of your lodge, for your overnight stay and some deserved relaxation. Or perhaps, if you still have some energy, you can celebrate your wonderful achievement. If you wish to remain in the hotel during the day, please advise us of this when you book your trip and we will inform you of the cost for day room which ends at hrs, and then make the booking on your behalf.
If you have booked a transfer to the airport, you will be collected from your hotel and dropped off at the airport. For those travellers who have booked to go on safari, our Easy Travel guide will be meeting you in the evening to provide you with a briefing. In certain places, such as Masai villages, cash will be the only acceptable method of payment for souvenirs etc.
US Dollars are always the best currency to carry and it is important that the bank notes you bring have been printed after the year , as older notes are often not accepted. Each traveler has different spending habits and therefore different cash requirements when on safari, to cover items such as drinks and souvenirs. You should bring the necessary amount of cash in US Dollars to cover your expected needs.
Tipping is of course discretionary, but is an expected part of the way in which business is done in Tanzania. It counts as an expression of gratitude to those who — hopefully — have made your experience an unforgettable one, and enables you to directly reward those people. Our passengers come from all around the world, with different cultural attitudes to tipping, but a tip is of great significance here in Tanzania and will be hugely appreciated by the recipient. In the course of your welcome meeting, you will be advised of the number of guides and the cook who will accompany you on your climb.
The number of porters will only be confirmed once the national park rangers at the gate have checked the luggage and equipment.

You will be introduced to your porters during the course of your trek — normally there will be 2 or 3 porters per trekker. We realize that both the process of giving tips and knowing how much to give can be difficult, so we provide the following guidance:. It is advisable to announce the total amount in front of the group, so that all team members are aware of how much is to be distributed. If your group consists of only one or two trekkers, you might want to give a bit more. An alternative method, which some trekkers prefer, is to give individual tips to the team members, in which case the following amounts can be used for guidance:.
- Account Options;
- The Castle and the Catapult: Joe the Dreamer;
- Costume Design in the Movies: An Illustrated Guide to the Work of 157 Great Designers (Dover Fashion and Costumes).
- For the Love of Literature: Teaching Core Subjects with Literature;
Gifts of clothes etc are also appreciated. Please ensure that all members of your party are covered by insurance and that it includes medical cover and adequate cover for emergency rescue and repatriation. If your travel insurance has been arranged in conjunction with your credit card provider, we will require proof of purchase of the cover.
