Mount Kilimanjaro is Tanzania’s awe-inspiring icon, but you don’t have to climb it to appreciate its full splendour and the enthralling countryside surrounding it. Our Kilimanjaro day excursion Sneak Peek of the Peak Hike allows you to struggle up the first section of the legendary Marangu Route through a rainforest teeming with wildlife and chattering, curious blue monkeys. Keep an eye out for a colobus or two

YES! YOU CAN! Kilimanjaro day hikes are a great option for those who want to experience the beauty of Africa’s highest peak without committing to a multi-day trek.

 

The shortest possible way to the summit is by the Marangu or the Umbwe Route. These routes can be completed in 5 days (but we don’t recommend it for most hikers). The longer treks, Lemosho, Machame, Rongai or Northern Circuit route take 6-10 days.

NO! Kilimanjaro’s altitude is a significant challenge, but climbers do not need supplemental oxygen to climb Kilimanjaro or reach the summit. To reach to the summit you use the acclimatization method of walking slowly “pole pole” climb high, sleep low.

NO! How will I wash when on Mount Kilimanjaro? There are no showers on Kilimanjaro. Therefore, it’s best to really scrub yourself in the last shower you take before your climb begins.

January and February are two of the best months to climb Mount Kilimanjaro and therefore also the most popular. They are the warmest months, so you can expect clear, sunny skies in the mornings and evenings, however clouds may appear in the afternoons and you may experience some rain.

At the base of the mountain, the average temperature is around 21 to 27 °C and at the summit, Uhuru Peak, the night time temperatures can range between 20 and -20 degrees Fahrenheit (-7 to -29 degrees Celsius).

The best time to go on a Tanzania safari depends on the specific national parks and game reserves you want to visit. Generally, the dry season, from June to October, is the best time to see wildlife in many of Tanzania’s parks, including the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater. However, the wet season, from November to May, can also offer unique wildlife viewing opportunities, such as the wildebeest migration.

The Kilimanjaro National Park authority has declared all the travelers above ten years can go for a successful Kilimanjaro Climb.
