1 Day Kilimanjaro Trek
On this day trip,
you will hike on the Marangu Route 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 isn’t 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.

your hotel, you will meet your guide, drive to
the Kilimanjaro National Park Gate (about 1

Eucalyptus trees, bird life, and Colobus
