Description

Venture out for a day's hiking on Africa's highest mountain, at 19,341 feet (5,895 m) above sea level. Trek the easy-level route of Marangu and admire the stunning views of the 3 volcanic peaks of Kibo, Mawenzi, and Shira as your guide explains their geology and surroundings.

Depart from your hotel in a 7-seat 4x4 safari vehicle and drive to Kilimanjaro National Park Gate at Marangu. After a briefing from your professional guide, trek through the lush forest up to Mandara Hut at 9,022 feet (2,750 m).

Admire the scenery that surrounds you and pause for photos of the 3 volcanic peaks. Listen as your guide explains the mountain's geology—Mawenzi and Shira are extinct, while Kibo, the highest, is dormant and could erupt again.

Choose to have a break for a picnic lunch at Mandara Hut forest, or after your descent to Marangu Gate, approximately 2 hours away.

It was such a let down, I will be very hesitant to book anything through Expedia ever again. We knowingly went with the most expensive option available across various agencies based on the tour description. But this was a let down in every sense. 1. The tour was supposed to be by Vintage Africa. For whatever reasons, they hived it off to Zara tours. Looking back Zara is perhaps not the standards the tour description promised. 2. We left the hotel at 7 on a day that was cloudy, foggy, wet : the tour operator or. guide ought to have known that we need to start our climb early. The guide seemed ill informed, We finally started the climb only by about 11.45 am. Looking back, that was late if it is expected that the hikers return by 6 pm or be charged for a second day. I expect the tour operator and the guide to know better and guide better 3. Geology information, the tour description claimed - The guide was ill informed, had nothing to tell us about the hill, geology, plat life ..
