After an early breakfast, you will be picked up by your guider at your hotel in Moshi and taken to the Kilimanjaro National Park Gate. The drive will take approximately 1 hour to reach the kilimanjaro gate. Once the necessary gate registration has been completed, your trek can begin and you’ll be hiking through the dense Kilimanjaro rainforest.
Alongside the impressive vegetation, you will have the chance to catch a glimpse of black and white colobus monkeys, blue monkeys and various bird species. Our knowledgeable English-speaking guide will inform you about Kilimanjaro and will explain the different species of plants and animals you will see.
After a 3-4 hour hike, you will reach Mandara Hut (2700m), where you will have a well-earned rest and lunch.
Your guide will then take you on a short hike (15 minutes walking distance) to the Maundi Crater, where you can enjoy wonderful views of Mount Kilimanjaro, Northern Tanzania and Kenya. Once you have thoroughly enjoyed the views, you will return to the Marangu Gate (2-3 hours walking distance), where your vehicle will be waiting to transfer you back to your hotel.
