Mt. Kilimanjaro Day Trip
You certainly can’t climb Kilimanjaro in a day, but our day trip to this iconic, snow-capped mountain will give you an excellent taster of why Africa’s highest peak is so popular. During the course of the day, the tour will follow the popular Marangu Route and walk as far as the first hut – the Mandara – where picnic lunch will be taken. As other trekkers continue upwards, bound for the summit, the daytrip trekkers will make the descent again and return to Moshi/Arusha.
