    Mount Kilimanjaro
    Stop: 10 hours - Admission included
    Your day trip begins with a 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 south east part. Our main task 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 route 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 relaxing music and cold or warm Kilimanjaro beer to take away the tiredness. Not only should you climb it but drink it too.

We came across polecat safaris through John the lead guide. He informed us about the hike and we automatically got excited.On the day before the hike we were briefed about the hike, especially on the does and don'ts.

Our hike was so excited we wish we could do it over again, it was fun with stories, knowledge it was as if we were hiking with our friend we knew for a long time.

Thanks for the service polecat safaris it was one to remember

We highly recommend them actually thy are like a show you can't stop watching.

We highly recommend them we were satisfied with the services

Thanks to John, Jartan and company.

We had an amazing experience during our day trip to Mount Kilimanjaro. My wife and I did not have enough time to climb the entire mountain, but wanted to make sure we saw it while we were in the area. Our guide, John, was excellent and made she we had an enjoyable experience. We had breakfast at a local restaurant on the way to the mountain and were provided with celebratory beers that we drank after making it back to the bottom of the mountain! Overall, we had an excellent trip.

The service was excellent. From the very beginning, they took us, even though we live in a protected area and it was very difficult to get to us. I was surprised when the guys settled all the issues and arrived on time. John is an excellent guide, told a lot of interesting things about the area and its history. I felt myself in a real jungle as a hero of the Uncharted game. I work with cryptocurrency and there was a collapse in the market, the guys were waiting for me for an hour! Until I finished my work. They just waited patiently. I am delighted with this trip! I loved Kilimanjaro so much that I will be back for a full excursion in 8 days, it is worth it. If you don’t know how to spend the day and want an active vacation, and not sit for hours in a jeep - this is for you!

James is the owner of the company and was always asking me throughout the trip if everything was going well. He made himself available during the time I was having the tour. The guys who work for him were efficient and on time. I had a great time during the Hiking and The price was very reasonable and Lunch was included. I would highly recommend booking with this company.

I was met by Brighton and John the day before the hike. They took me to grab a rain jacket since I didn’t have one and were kind enough to take me to a local bar to eat and have a Kilimanjaro beer.

The next day John and I set out on the Marangu route for the hike. It was challenging and much more than I expected. John was very encouraging and kept reminding me to be positive and not give up. Going back after the 3 hour climb was much easier. I am glad I did it and maybe one day I’ll do the full climb.

I would recommend this company.

The half-day hike was a great experience. Grateful to John (the guide) for his insight and patience. Appreciated the additional support from Brighton, Jack and Malachi. I learned a lot about the history of the route and of the different plant and animal species. The climb was hard but well worth it, and when we reached the Mandara Hunt, it was worth it. We also went a bit further to see the caldera area which was an added plus. The climb down was challenging due to the slope as well as the wet conditions on the stones, roots. It was great to do this hike with this group as they made it seem easy and were always concerned about my safety. I am more motivated to do the multi-day hike to the top of Mt. Kilimanjaro in a future visit.

This was my first tour experience in Tanzania and set the stage for my time in the country. I appreciated meeting with the Brighton the night before and then picking up on time, and making sure that all the details were taken care of. Everything was as promised and it went smoothly. I look forward to a future visit to Tanzania and in engaging with this group again.

I would definitely this company.

The day hike with John was one of my highlights in Tanzania. We got picked up from the airport and went straight for the day trip in kilimandjaro. It was a long day but it was such a nice physical activity. We enjoyed the diverse nature and the beauty of this mountain while having fun conversations with our guides. They were friendly, fun and knowledgeable. I definitely recommend this day trip and even going all the way up if you have time. For me that's the goal next time for sure! I'll do this with John as he was the best guide I could ask for, authentic!
