For Quality and affordable Services on the Slopes of Mt. Kilimanjaro
For those who do not wish to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro to the top and yet want to experience the magic of the Mountain then a day trip to the first hut will be ideal for them. This hike to the first hut will allow you to have a feel of the mountain for one day. The hike through the rain forest will be breathtaking as you come close to nature while making your body enjoy a nice walk without feeling too exhausted at the end. If you have been doing a driving safari for most part of your trip, a break from the car and a chance to stretch your muscles in Nature will make you appreciate nature as you explore Kilimanjaro region.
On a clear day you will be in a position to see and hear birds singing in the bushes, monkeys jumping from tree to tree and the breathtaking landscape and vegetation on the slopes of Mt. Kilimanjaro. Children are also allowed to do the Kilimanjaro day hike and it will be a good family hike as you introduce your young ones to the highest Mountain in Africa without taking them all the way to the top.
One advantage of this day trip is that you will not be required to have any special Mountain climbing gears. All that you need for this trek is comfortable clothing, comfortable walking shoes and a rain coat in case it rains on your way up or down. Please remember to have your sunscreen on to protect your skin from the sun especially on the hot days.
