Get ready for a fantastic day of hiking in the cool jungles at the base of Africa’s tallest peak. Our driver will pick you up at your hotel in Moshi and drive you to the Kilimanjaro National Park Gate (about 1 hour) where you will register with the park service before starting the trek. It’s a gentle 8km climb (from 1860m/6100ft to 2700m/8875ft) one way to the Mandera huts and the Maundi Craters. Along the way you go through the lowland forests at the base of Kilimanjaro where you can see a variety of birds and lush forests. You have a good chance of seeing Colobus monkey’s near the Mandera huts. You enter more of a traditional cloud forest as you approach the huts and make your way to the Maundi Crater from where you have a great view of the surrounding valleys. You will be escorted by a knowledgeable guide who will point out the different species of plants and animals and provide you with a packed lunch. Once you arrive back at the gate after a day of hiking we will return you by car to your hotel in Moshi.
