    • Does my arrival time on the first day of this tour matter?

      Ideally arriving one day before your briefing, is what we recommend. However if your flight arrives on the first day, latest midday day at Kilimanjaro Airport, that will also be fine. The initial trek starts on the 2nd day. We will give you a briefing and check your gear on the 1st day and you will meet your mountain guides.

    • What is included in the trek?

      Our trek includes two nights, one before and one after the trek at the hostel Rafiki Backpackers.
