Crater Camp sits right between the Uhuru peak and the Furtwangler Glacier. While Uhuru is the highest point of Kilimanjaro, the crater actually is the center of the volcano.
While staying at Crater Camp, you will literally sleep on the crater floor right next to one of Kilimanjaro’s last remaining glaciers. The possibility to stay at the highest camp on Kilimanjaro is something that only a few climbers get to experience.
Crater Camp appeals to those climbers who don’t want to go where everyone else goes but to places that have that have a special unique edge and thrill.
Furthermore, you will have the unique opportunity to explore the thick wall of ice at the Furtwangler glacier up close.
Another exciting opportunity is a visit to the actual Ash Pit of Kilimanjaro. The Ash Pit is a perfect circle with a width of 395 feet full of boulders and volcanic rocks. You can even still smell the sulfur; better known as the smell of rotten eggs.
