A Day on Kilimanjaro

If you are only in Tanzania for a short amount of time, or are not quite ready to tackle the summit of Africa’s largest mountain, a day hike up Mt Kilimanjaro is for you. Our day hike takes you to Mandara Hut, on the Marangu Route, and a little further to the Maundi crater where you will have a nice view of Mawenzi peak and Kibo( Uhuru) peak.  Walking through the rainforest, you are likely to see black and white colobus monkeys, blue monkeys, and definitely flowers like impatients kilimanjari, Fireball lily ,Protea kilimanjarica, lobelia deckenii and many different birds.  A great family option for those with children who want to also experience the magic of being on the Roof of Africa.
