Overview
It’s impossible to climb this famous highest Mount Kilimanjaro in a day, but our day trip to this majestic iconic snow-caped mountain will give you a shot to scramble up the first leg of the well-known Marangu route. On your way through the thick rainforest you will come across twittering and chattering bird life, colobus monkeys and don’t forget to watch out for the curious blue Monkeys.

    Mount Kilimanjaro
    Stop: 9 hours - Admission included
    Your day trip begins with hotel pick at either Moshi or Arusha then jump in for a relaxing drive to Marangu gate for registration with the authorities before you begin your long awaited hike. This route approaches the mountain from the southern east part. Our main tusk for the day is to make sure we reach Mandara Hut, the first point of a full hike. We will only trek through the lower attitudes, taking our picnic lunch on rout to Mandara Hut. Once we are at Mandara Hut, we will rest for approximately 30 to 45 minutes before we begin our slow descend back to the Main Gate. Our driver will be waiting for you to drive you back to your hotel with a relaxing music and cold or warm Kilimanjaro beer to take away the tiredness. Not only should you climb it but drink it too.
