What you can expect

The extended version of Northern Circuit route includes two extra days to get proper acclimatisation before overnight at Crater Camp. Situated close to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro at the altitude of 5790 m, this is the highest overnight possible at the equator, so we will do our utmost to make your Kilimanjaro climb comfortable, as well as unforgettable. Only a lucky few can lay claim to having seen the night skies at this altitude and they are indeed a sight to behold: Kilimanjaro Glaciers against the backdrop of the Milky Way! While such ascents are never without their risks, the Alaitol Safaris Team has both the expertise and equipment to ensure your safety at Kilimanjaro Crater Camp.
