Explore the stunning natural beauty and local culture of East Africa.

Run the lower slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro on ancient trails between the national park forest and local villages.
Be amazed by the beauty of the surrounding landscape, from Uhuru Peak – the Roof of Africa – above, to the encircling mountain rainforest, the waterfalls and rivers lining the valleys, remote villages with plots of coffee and banana trees, maize fields, pastures, wildflowers and the magnificent views of the sweeping plains below.

The trails pass through the land of the Chagga people, who for centuries have cultivated this fertile mountain paradise. Running on local footpaths used to access farm fields, forests, and to cross from one ridge to another, you discover a part of Tanzania few tourists ever see.

Day 1:

Arrive at the Kilimanjaro International Airport. You will be met by your driver and transferred to Mbahe Village on the slopes of Mt. Kilimanjaro. Mbahe will be your base for run preparation and orientation. Accommodations are in private cottages on Simon Mtuy’s family farm.

 Day 2:

Breakfast and orientation meeting, followed by a farm tour. We‘ll go for a light run to explore the village and mountain trails. This afternoon, enjoy free time to explore the farm, swim in the Moonjo River waterfall, relax with a good book, or just admire the sweeping mountain views with a cup of “homebrew” coffee (grown and roasted on the farm). After dinner, we‘ll review additional run details and logistics.

 Day 3:

Run 31 km from Mbahe to Rombo. From the official start at Kilimanjaro National Park’s Marangu entrance gate, we cross dozens of streams and rivers, many with deep and steep gorges to descend and ascend, while keeping Mawenzi, Kilimanjaro’s second peak, on our left and Kenya’s Tsavo National Park to our right. You will be completely spent at the end of this day.

 Day 4:

Run 31 km Rombo to Rongai. As we approach Kilimanjaro’s drier northeast flank, the number and depth of the gorges lessen, as do the number of settlements. We may encounter colobus and blue monkeys in the forests. The route runs along a paved road along the Kenyan border for a few kilometers.

 Day 5:

Run 33 km Rongai to Kitendeni. The forest thins as we run through a dry and rocky landscape, passing Maasai settlements and with the chance to see wildlife migrating from the plains below to mountainside above. Our campsite at a primary school overlooks Amboseli National Park in Kenya, where the only light comes from the stars above and the few safari lodges within the park.

 Day 6:

Run 39 km Kitendeni to West Kilimanjaro. Exiting the sparse landscape, we skirt Legumishera Hill, which contains a small lake at the summit and is the source of much local superstition. We then run several hilly kilometers along the forest edge between Kilimanjaro National Park and cultivated land. We’ll finish the day at Simba Farm, one of the original European farms in Tanganyika Territory. The farm grows wheat and barley for local breweries and market produce for Arusha Town. From the dining area we have spectacular sunset views of Mount Meru.

 Day 7:

Run 46 km West Kilimanjaro to Masama Run. Today is the longest stage. We begin with a long ascent into the forest reserve where active timber harvesting continues, then exit to a hot and dry lowland stretch, and finally return to the verdant southern slopes of Kilimanjaro.

 Day 8:

Run 35 km Masama to Mweka. Today we encounter our steepest valleys and ridges above a densely settled area of smallholder Arabica coffee farms that use centuries-old irrigation canals dug along the mountainside. Each village has its own primary school, each with its own distinctive uniform color for the students.

 Day 9:

Run 24 km Mweka to Kidia Run. Kidia was the site of the first European settlement in the Kilimanjaro region. The original church and mission station are still intact. Each mountain ridge in this area is either predominantly Lutheran or Catholic, depending on the original missionary group operating there. Another day of extreme elevation changes.

 Day 10:

Run 21 km Kidia to Mbahe. Running high above the villages and just outside the national park boundary, our final day brings even more spectacular views and a joyous return to Mbahe Village, where we started 7 days ago. Congratulations, you ran around the Roof of Africa! Celebrate with a leap into the river, hot shower, or cold beer . . . or all three!

 Day 11:

Rest, recover and relax at the farm. For those returning home you will be transferred to the Kilimanjaro International Airport to catch your flight. Those staying in Tanzania may start your safari, depart for Zanzibar, or spend an extra night at Mbahe.

Running high above the villages and just outside the national park boundary, our final day brings even more spectacular views and a joyous return to Mbahe Village, where we started 7 days ago. Congratulations, you ran around the Roof of Africa! Celebrate with a leap into the river, hot shower, or cold beer . . . or all three!

Day 11:

Rest, recover and relax at the farm. For those returning home you will be transferred to the Kilimanjaro International Airport to catch your flight. Those staying in Tanzania may start your safari, depart for Zanzibar, or spend an extra night at Mbahe.
