Kili day hike
Duration - 1 days

On this day trip, you will hike on the Marangu Route up to Mandara Hut for lunch. This trek is NOT to the summit.

All short treks are offered on a private basis, and you can start on any day of the year.

The short treks are geared for people who like to hike but reaching the summit isn’t a “must do”, and allow one to experience the excitement of hiking on the highest peak on the African continent.

All trekking inside of the Tanzania National Park require the services of a certified Kilimanjaro guide, and the Marangu route is the only route where short treks are allowed.
