"Shira One Camp" Kilimanjaro National Park Hotel Tip by sarahandgareth
Kilimanjaro National Park Hotels: 17 reviews and 21 photos
Shira One camp was the first of two on the Shira Plateau, and was far more exposed than our previous night at Mti Mkubwa. The camp was right out in the open, with a stream running nearby and a couple of outhouses sticking up here and there. We heard the wind howl at night, but the incredibly clear sky (with zero light pollution) was perfect for stargazing, while the moon illuminated the summit (which seemed remarkably/deceivingly near).
Unique Qualities: On the Shira Plateau, we got our first summit views of the hike! What an amazing dinner back drop!
Directions: 11,500ft (3500m) above sea level
