Short Kilimanjaro Hike

On the 02 Days Kilimanjaro Hiking Tour trip, you will hike on the Marangu Route for one night at Mandara Hut and towards Horombo Hut before returning to Mandara for lunch and then hiking back. You will NOT reach 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 allows one to experience the excitement of hiking on the highest peak on the African continent. All trekking inside of the Tanzania National Park requires the services of a certified Kilimanjaro guide, and the Kilimanjaro Marangu route is the only route where short treks are allowed. For an overnight hike, you will stay at the park huts.
