Get a taste of trekking on Mt. Kilimanjaro without climbing all the way to the top! This day hike to the beautiful Shira Plateau begins at 3600 m and takes you through the shrub-steppe on the lower slopes of Mt. Kilimanjaro. You’ll hike for approximately 2 hours, with little elevation gain, to one of the base camps used by people trekking this world-famous mountain. You’ll have your picnic lunch there and you can watch the hustle and bustle of guides, porters, cooks and clients arriving and setting up camp for the night. It’s a great spot for photos, too, with views to the top of Mt. Kilimanjaro. In the early afternoon, you’ll hike back to the vehicles for your return trip to Arusha.

Important Information:
