TRIP OVERVIEW

On this Kilimanjaro day trip, we will start from the hotel or lodge and drive to Marangu gate, the Headquarters office, where you will register and then start your hike from there. You will walk up to Mandara Hut for lunch. You will NOT reach the summit. All short treks are offered on a private basis, and you can start on any day of the year.
The short treks are geared for people who like to hike but reaching the summit is not a “must do”, and allow one to experience the excitement of hiking on the highest peak on the African continent. All trekking inside of the Tanzania National Park require the services of a certified Kilimanjaro guide, and the Marangu route is the only route where short treks are allowed.

  • Soon after breakfast at your hotel or lodge, you will meet your guide, drive to the Kilimanjaro National Park Gate at Marangu Headquarters Office (about 3 hours from Arusha), register and begins the hike.
    The walk will go through the rainforest to the Mandara huts, 2720m above the sea level. A side trip to Maundi Crater is a good way to see the surroundings including Northern Tanzania and Kenya terrene. In the rainforest, look for towering trees, bird life, and Colobus monkeys. After lunch, hike back to the park gate and drive back to Arusha for a hot shower that will be by dinner and overnight.
