Drive from Arusha to the starting point of the Lemosho Trail. After checking in at the trailhead, start walking through the Afro-montane forest. In a short period cross a variety of eco-systems including the heath zone and the Shira Plateau. Civilized Adventures has arranged an extra acclimatization day where you will walk high and sleep low. On your final day ascend to the roof of Africa (19,341 feet above sea level). If your timing allows for it, we suggest you select your ascent date to be just prior to the full moon: take advantage of great moonlight yet avoid the big crowds. Start your final ascent around midnight to arrive at the crater rim or, depending on your fitness level, continue to the roof of Africa (Uhuru Peak) for sunrise. Your descent includes one more night on the mountain. [/su_spoiler]
