Shira Day Hike VIP
WHY THIS ITINERARY?
For those that don’t do things by half! This is for the discerning traveller who wants nothing but the very best. This follows a similar itinerary to the Shira Day Hike but caters more to the “foodies” among us. This itinerary comes with a variety of options according to just how important you want to be!
Starting on the Western side of Kilimanjaro National Park, this hike starts with breakfast in the national park before exploring the Shira Plateau – the oldest of the 3 volcanoes on Kilimanjaro. After which, lunch is taken above the clouds (usually) with views of Kibo and Meru.
The Shira Plateau with stunning views of Kibo, walking across the Shira plateau, Shira Cathedral and 2 outstanding meals to compliment an already amazing day.
Early in the morning, normally around 6am, you are collected from your hotel and transferred to Kilimanjaro National Park. Formalities are completed at Londrossi Gate before getting back in the car and transiting to Murram Barrier, where a delicious breakfast is waiting for you.
After breakfast you will explore the Shira Plateau with the assistance of a professional guide until lunch where again, the finest cuisine on Kilimanjaro will be waiting for you. We take a leisurely lunch, soaking in the sights over a glass of champagne before being transferred back to your hotel.
Stay closer to Arusha National Park so that you don’t have to get up quite so early? There are plenty of great lodges in West Kilimanjaro National Park that will easily shave up to two hours of your travel time in the morning; OR for the very best experience, why not transfer with a helicopter instead?
