The Destinations
Dream African getaways are about as diverse as the continent's geography. But for the serious outdoor enthusiast, a trek to the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro leads the all-time wish list.

You'll always remember standing on top of the world—gazing down on the sun as it breaks through the pillowy clouds—but your experience along the way will stay with you just as long. Begin by traversing the low-lying jungles, crossing through alpine scrub, and eventually reaching desolate terrain that looks more like a view through the Hubble telescope than anything you've seen in real life.

The balmy atmosphere will thin out to crisp, cool air as you ascend, taking a toll on your body and challenging you to summit Uhuru Peak, the highest point in Africa. If the trip up feels like the deepest breath you've ever taken, the descent from Mt. Kilimanjaro will be the most satisfying exhale you've ever known.

Make the climb courtesy of One World Safari Tours:

The Itinerary
day 1: Take off on your flight from New York City or Los Angeles to the Kilimanjaro (JRO) or Nairobi (NBO) airport (depending on departure dates).

day 2: Some flights will arrive at the airport today, where a friendly One World representative will pick you up and take you to your lodge in Arusha.
Overnight at Ilboru Safari Lodge.

day 3: Other flights will get in today. Second-day arrivals will be escorted to the lodge, while those who checked in the day before rest or explore Arusha at their leisure. In late afternoon, your group will meet with your team of mountain guides to be sure you have all the necessary personal gear. Missing items will be available for rent.
Overnight at Ilboru Safari Lodge. Dinner provided.

day 4: Depart for Mt. Kilimanjaro and drive to Machame Gate, where you'll take a five- to six-hour walk through the picturesque forest before reaching the Machame campsite. You'll be treated to dinner before hitting the sack.
Overnight at the Machame hut campsite (Altitude: 3,050 meters). Breakfast, lunch, and dinner provided.

day 5: After breakfast, trek over one of Kilimanjaro's most scenic points, the Shira Plateau. Take in views of the Great Rift Valley and the active volcano, Mount Meru, before setting up tents at the Shira campsite.
Overnight at the Shira hut campsite (Altitude: 3,800 meters). Breakfast, lunch, and dinner provided.

day 6: Ascend toward the Kibo Dome, crossing the desert zone until you reach Lava Tower, a mount of solidified lava and the highest point of the day. From there, descend slightly to your next campsite.
Overnight at the Baranco hut campsite (Altitude: 3,955 meters). Breakfast, lunch, and dinner provided.

day 7: Cross the Great Barranco Valley, climb up the Barranco Wall, and trek through Karanga Valley to the Barafu campsite for excellent views of Kibo and Mawenzi peaks. You'll hit the sack early as your next day starts well before sunrise.
Overnight at the Barafu hut campsite (4,610 meters). Breakfast, lunch, and dinner provided.

day 8: Depart between midnight and 1 a.m. to make your six-hour summit climb by moonlight. Enjoy a stunning sunrise at Uhuru Peak (5,895 meters) as rays creep over floating clouds and snowcapped mountains. Take in the sights before descending another six hours to your next campsite.
Overnight at the Mweka hut campsite (3,100 meters). Breakfast, lunch, and dinner provided.

day 9: Finish your trek with an easy walk to Mweka gate, where you will be awarded your certificate and climbing medal as you toast your accomplishment over champagne or another libation. Transportation will be waiting to take you to your lodge in Arusha. You'll enjoy a celebratory meal at the mountain gate or lodge.
Overnight at Ilboru Safari Lodge. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner provided.

day 10: After breakfast at your hotel, depart for a visit to the local charity or cultural program your trip has supported. Spend time visiting the school, orphanage, community or health center, or remote village that a portion of your trek has funded. Return to the hotel for baggage pickup and head to the Kilimanjaro or Nairobi airport for your late-night flight back home.
Breakfast included.
