    Top of Africa-Kili Climb: Shira Route

    Londorossi Gate via Barranco and Barafu to Uhuru Peak

    This expedition to the summit of Africa’s tallest mountain follows the Shira route to Kilimanjaro’s crater rim. Beginning with a short drive from the entrance gate of Kilimanjaro National Park, your adventure continues on foot as you trek up the mountain from the breathtaking Shira Plateau to the tallest point in Africa – Uhuru Peak. Spend the night at various cozy campsites located along your path, and enjoy several hours of daily scenic hiking as you venture from camp to camp. You will be hard-pressed to experience a more exhilarating day than that of your final ascent, as you depart by flashlight under the cover of night, arriving at the crater rim in time to witness an incomparable sunrise over the entire continent. From there, continue on to Uhuru Peak, or rest and enjoy the scenery before beginning your descent. For those looking to reach the top of Africa, this expedition via the Shira route is an excellent opportunity to do so.
