The ancient mountain of Kilimanjaro awaits you. It will be 11 days of moments in union and communion with nature. Everything combined to give you balance and fulfillment.

Let’s go together on this climb to the top, a personal and collective achievement, in a moment that will remain etched in your memory forever.

Here’s what we have prepared for you:

Day by Day

Travel from Portugal to Kilimanjaro airport and transfer to Moshi town. Here we get into the mood for the experience…

Breakfast around 07h00.

Bus ride to the entrance of Marangu Park.

Opening circle with briefing for the day’s walk and guided meditation.

Then we start our journey with a walk through a lush tropical forest, where we can see various species of monkeys and towering trees, until we reach Mandara Hut – at an altitude of 2720 meters.

At around 12 noon we’ll take a break for lunch in a room with a toilet available.

On arrival, we’ll be welcomed into an elegant wooden refuge in the middle of nature, where we’ll spend the first night. Before ending the day, we will have a moment of physical and mental reorganization, with a gentle and restorative class by Bernardo Gama, in order to prepare the mindset for the next day and relax body and mind for a night of deep and restorative sleep.

Duration: 4 hours.

We start the day with a moment of yoga and meditation before breakfast, served at 07h30/08h00, and we leave Mandara Hut through an area of savannah. Here you can see plants endemic to Kilimanjaro, such as the giant Lubelia, which can reach 3 meters in height, and the Senecia, which can reach 5 meters.

At around 12 noon, we’ll take a break for lunch in an area with a toilet.

The landscapes are vast and seem to be straight out of a postcard. We arrive at Horombo Hut (3720 m), where we will be welcomed into a new refuge for the night. We end the day with a gentle stretching session.

Duration: 6 hours

Breakfast around 07h00.

This day will be dedicated to improving our acclimatization. We’ll take the opportunity to hike up to Zebras Rock, where we’ll have the chance to marvel at the beautiful scenery.

At around 12 noon, we’ll take a break for lunch in a space with a toilet available.

It will be possible to see the ancient Mawenzi volcano. Here we will have a moment of meditative pause, guided by Bernardo Gama, taking the opportunity to remember our intentions, the sankalpa. At the end, we return to the refuge at Horombo Hut.

Duration 5 hours

Breakfast around 07h00.

Start of the day with a moment of mindfulness. On this day we start the walk from Horombo Hut to Kibo Hut. Here we enter an area of alpine desert and the path is long and not very steep.

At around 12 noon, we’ll take a break for lunch in an area where toilets are available.

We begin to see Kilimanjaro getting closer and closer… We end the day with a calming meditation, providing slowness and patience, followed by a night’s rest in the refuges.

The day of the mountain!

We start the day with a meditation to prepare us for the big moment.

We have breakfast at around 7 a.m., make our final preparations and begin the ascent to the summit of Kilimanjaro.

The first objective is to reach Gilman’s Point, at an altitude of 5685 meters. There we’ll be able to see Uhuru Peak in the distance – at 5895 meters. We’ll make a rest stop (5/10 minutes) before heading towards the summit, with a wide view of the crater of the ancient volcano.

At around 12 noon, we’ll take a break for lunch in a room with a toilet available.

On this day we’ll reach the summit of Kilimanjaro, where we’ll be able to take photos that we’ll always remember (although the real memory will be the overcoming we’ll feel!).

A moment of contemplation and feeling, by Bernando Gama, before we start the journey back to Kibo Hut, where we will spend the night again.

Duration 10 hours

On this day we start the return trek… already full and satisfied with the achievement!

This will be a day of hiking, leaving the Hut (4720 m) after breakfast, at around 07h30, to reach Mandara Hut (2720 m).

Along the way, we’ll take a break for lunch, around 12 noon, in a place with a toilet available.

On arrival at Mandara Hut and before going to bed, a moment of meditation on impermanence and resilience associated with the mountain will be facilitated.

Duration 5/6 hours

After a restful night’s sleep, we start the walk back to Marangu, the place where we started our adventure.

Breakfast around 07h00.

Your body may be tired, but your mind will be revitalized! We see the lush vegetation with new eyes, populated by small monkeys who happily signal our passage.

At around 12 noon, we’ll take a break for lunch in an area with a toilet.

At the end of the hike, we’ll return by bus to our hotel in Moshi, where a relaxing bath and a recovery massage will be waiting for us.

That evening we’ll have a special group dinner to celebrate the success of the experience.

Duration 3 hours

Breakfast around 07h00.

We start the day with a special closing/sharing circle to round off the experience.

Journey back to Portugal… a better version. Ready for the next journey! Shall we?
