From the base camp we lead you to the summit via the crater rim. Uhuru Peak, 5,895 m/19,341 ft, dominates the landscape offering you a breathtaking sunrise, and if weather permits an opportunity launch from the top straight away. Should conditions not allow you to spread your wings, additional nights are built into the expedition route to allow more time to possibly fly from Africa’s tallest mountain. Reserve days for climbing and flying in case of bad weather with overnight back at base camp at 4,700m and/or at Crater Camp at 5,730m.
Base Camp to Summit 5,4km/3,3miles
Base Camp to Crater Rim 5-6 hrs Plus 1.5 – 2hrs to Uhuru Peak
If you managed to launch successfully, you get to enjoy a magical flight from the Roof of Africa that should last more than an hour by paraglider. Landing at one of the designated landing areas, our retrieve crew will collect you and take you back to the hotel in Moshi for a shower, celebrations and overnight.
Though our team will make every effort to assist with a successful and safe flight, there is always the chance of walking back down. A descent on foot down to Moshi with a night en-route is included as a contingency plan for any unlucky pilots who do not manage to get off in a safe flying window.
