Trip Overview

Experience the challenge and achievement of a lifetime as you summit Mount Kilimanjaro with AdventureWomen on this ultimate, remote, and upgraded ten-day Northern Circuit trek offered in September 2021. On this transformational journey, (re)discover your power, persevere with like-minded women, and walk among some of Africa’s greatest wonders.

At 19,341’, flat-topped Uhuru Peak is truly the Roof of Africa. The trek is tough but you’re hiking with women who share your grit and drive, lifting each other up to ensure everyone reaches the top as one. Plus, a team of experienced porters and Wilderness First Responder guides, following rigorous safety protocols, takes care of every detail including setting up each camp and preparing nutritious meals, each better than the last! You are also accompanied by an AdventureWomen Ambassador, committed to helping make your experience a fun and personally rewarding adventure, and cheering you on as you reach beyond your comfort zone to take on new challenges in your own unique way!

AdventureWomen has upgraded this trek to be the ultimate way to reach the summit. This ten-day trek has a 98% summit success rate and gives you the maximum time to acclimatize to the altitude. Not only do you have the best Wilderness First Responder guides, but some of them will be women guides, who have been mentored by AdventureWomen to help advance their guiding career. You will have your own single tent, complete with a comfortable cot and foam mattress, and the dining tent is furnished with a heater, making mealtimes with your group cozy affairs. You will have the opportunity to rent top-of-the-line trekking gear so you don’t have to buy everything at home, and if you want, you can even hire a personal porter to trek by your side the whole way and carry your day pack, maximizing your chance of reaching the summit.

On your first day in Tanzania, arrive as strangers but quickly become friends with a stroll together across the lowlands to watch for giraffe and other wildlife. Rise the next morning for a final gear check and a chance to meet your amazing crew before driving through the rainforest to the trailhead for the Northern Circuit, the most remote route on the mountain. Here begins the “pole pole” (slowly slowly) trek up through the rainforest. The green canopy then gives way to heath and moorlands thick with heather and flora of otherworldly proportions. Camping among the heath, shed those boots, stretch your toes, and dream about the next day’s trek to Shira plateau, one of the highest plateaus on earth. It’s cloud-covered terrain of volcanic rock all the way. You’ve got this!

You’ll hike to a higher elevation each day before descending a bit each evening, helping you acclimatize and prepare for the summit. Enjoy the serenity and quiet of the Northern Circuit, the route around the backside of the peak, affording you rarely-seen spectacular views across the border into Kenya. When you reach the base camp for your summit attempt, rest, drink deeply, and eat hearty because everyone sets out for the summit early in the morning. You’re pushing for Uhuru Peak!

With exuberant cheers and shouts, share your triumphant summit of Uhuru’s rocky crown with the victorious women who’ve hiked alongside you, challenging you to press on. Savor this moment of glory and gratitude. After your celebrations at 19,341’, descend into Crater Camp from the summit and cap your achievement with a hot meal and views of towering glaciers from your tent.

The next morning, begin your descent from the roof of Africa with your fellow Adventure Women, giddy with pride and excitement. After one more night in your trusty sleeping bags, say goodbye to your guides and crew, the special team who made your trek not only successful and safe, but more fun than you imagined!

Since you’re in Tanzania, cap your epic Kili climb with an optional five-day safari across bio-diverse Tanzania, the Ngorongoro Conservation Area and the Serengeti. Explore the Ngorongoro Crater, home to 25,000 of Africa’s largest mammals. After a stop to view the Olduvai Gorge, camp in a nyumba (Swahili for ‘home’). From here, venture out at dawn to search for Serengeti wildlife, and if you book in advance, take a hot air balloon excursion for jaw-dropping 360º views of the Serengeti.

Under the tangled canopy of moss coated vines, search for black and white colobus monkey, blue monkey, and a vibrant array of exotic birds.

We are happy to help you make your flight and travel arrangements. If you’d like to do anything prior to or following the AdventureWomen trip, we’d be delighted to help you arrange any trip extensions you’re interested in.

Note: The recent trend in travel is for travelers to finalize their plans much closer to departure time than was customary in the past. While we try to be as flexible as possible booking last-minute registrants, we must release hotel rooms two to three months prior to departure! Please keep this in mind when making your travel plans.

Passports and Visas

Citizens of the United States must have a passport valid for six months beyond your travel dates with at least two blank facing pages. If you do not have a passport, please apply now!

US Passport holders will need a visa to visit Tanzania. We will provide detailed information before your departure on how to obtain your visa.

Activity Level

We rate this trip as Challenging. Our Challenging adventures get your heart rate really pumping and are more athletic. These women’s trips are demanding yet deeply rewarding and designed for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts. You should be in excellent physical condition, and be able to hike up to 10 miles per day, in steeper, more rugged terrain. Please note that this is a general description of what you might encounter; for specific details about your trip, please consult the itinerary.

You should come with a flexible, adventurous, and enthusiastic spirit, and a wonderful sense of humor that adventure travel requires.

General Preparation Guidelines

Training for your Mount Kilimanjaro trek requires both physical and mental preparation. You do not need technical climbing skills, but do not underestimate the demands of the climb. You WILL need to be fit. Endurance, good cardiovascular health, and a healthy desire to reach the summit are important.

We suggest that you begin focused training at 60-90 days before your departure, more rigorous training at 15-60 days, and then taper off in the final two weeks. You should consult your physician if you are significantly altering your physical routine for training.

We have a partnership with FitForTrips, a company that will design an individualized fitness plan for you to ensure that you are prepared for the trip. Visit their website to learn more!

We will send you a full training guide with suggestions for physical activities when you register for your trek. Please let us know if you have questions!

Health Considerations

Make an appointment with a travel clinic. There are no immunization requirements for travel to Tanzania, however your local travel clinic may have recommendations for you based on your age, health, and past vaccination history.

For more health information, go to www.cdc.gov/travel and navigate to the page about Tanzania.

For trekkers over 70 years of age, AdventureWomen requires your doctor to fill out a trekking waiver. Please contact us for more information.

Altitude Symptoms

At high altitude, it is typical for trekkers to feel some physical effects such as loss of appetite, fatigue, or headache. Symptoms become more severe if you experience acute altitude sickness. Symptoms of acute altitude sickness can include troubled breathing while resting, severe coughing, confusion, impairment of motor skills, and irrational behavior.

Notify your guide immediately if you believe you are experiencing any of these symptoms. As a highly-trained professional, your guide makes your safety his top priority. If he determines that you are suffering from an acute form of altitude sickness, you will need to descend immediately to a lower altitude with a guide. This could mean being evacuated by helicopter. Medical evacuation insurance is required for this trek.
