detail itinerary

Leave Arusha at 06 AM after breakfast and a briefing from your guide. Drive for 0300hrs to the Marangu Gate on the eastern side of Kilimanjaro. Fill out a registration form there. At 10:30 AM, start your hike. Find tall Eucalyptus trees, avian life, and Columbus monkeys in the rain forest. Gaiters and trekking poles will be useful because the terrain might be muddy and rainy at these lower elevations. It should be fine to just wear shorts and t-shirts, but keep your rain gear and warmer clothes nearby. After a midway lunch break, arrive at the Mandara Huts at 2:30 or 3 PM. Take a break, unpack, and have some tea or coffee. You can go for a hike to the neighboring stunning Maundi Crater after lunch. You’ll need to wait for roughly 30 minutes, after which you may begin your ascent to the park’s Marangu gate. You will be picked up by our driver and driven to your accommodation in the Arusha town from there.
