Itinerary

  • Прибытие Day 1 Trekking from Marangu Gate to Mandara Hut and descend back

    Our guides will arrive at the hotel in the morning to meet you and hold a quick briefing, after which you will be transferred to Kilimanjaro National Park's eastern entrance: Marangu Gate (1,860 m/6,046 f)). After the quick formality of registering the  climbing permits and registering with the rescue service, the group will start trekking up to Mandara Hut (2,700 m/8,858 ft ). The trekking route includes a passage through the rainforest where tropical showers are highly probable, so we recommend taking raincoats. 

    When you reach the camp, you will be provided with lunch-boxes.

    After lunch you can take a hike to the beautiful Maundi Crater nearby. It will take about 30 minutes, after which you will start your descent down to the exit of the park - Marangu gate. There our driver will pick you up and drive you to your hotel in the town of Moshi.

Kilimanjaro Weather

Month Jan Feb Mar Apr May Jun Jul Aug Sep Oct Nov Dec
Weather

Dry season

The most favorable weather conditions for a Kilimanjaro day hike are middle June - late September and late December - early March. This is when the sky is clear and the chances of rain are very slow. You will enjoy clear views of the surrounding wilderness. The trek, however, may be busy at these times of the year.

Rain season

The periods of late March - early June and late October - middle December are when the rains are more likely. It is foggy and a rain poncho is an absolute must. Trekking is more challenging during the rainy season, but at the same time, the verdure is lush green, creating inimitable wilderness experience. The number of other trekkers on the trek is considerably lower.

Perhaps, you want to make a full Kilimanjaro hike?

Read more about Kilimanjaro Climbing

While Marangu day-hikes are an excellent way to see the magnificent Kilimanjaro up close, hardly will they bring you the same joy and sense of achievement as a full trip to Uhuru, the highest peak in the whole African continent (5 895 m/ 19,341 ft).

While on these day trips, you will explore the rainforest and moorland climate zones only. Meanwhile, a full trek to the summit will also treat you to the highland desert and arctic zones with their unique habitats, to say nothing of the exhilarating visual euphoria you will definitely experience in the summit zone.

Although Mt Kilimanjaro is the highest free-standing mountain in the world, hiking up to Uhuru Peak does not require any special mountaineering skills or equipment. The majority of those reaching the peak successfully are in average physical shape and have zero climbing background. More important is the choice of a climbing program that will ensure you proper gradual acclimatisation and maximize your chances for success. Our specialists are just the ones who can help you with this.
