Only an hours drive from Moshi on the border between Tanzania and Kenya sits a wondrous crater lake. This volcanic area is perfect for camping, swimming and exploration. A camp ground with several camping sites is available and includes a bar, restaurant, hot showers and barbecue grills.
The Kinukamori waterfall, part of Marangu village, offers another look at the Chagga culture. On top of the waterfall sits a statue of a woman. According to legend, a woman who became pregnant out of wedlock contemplated committing suicide only to change her mind and be driven to death over the waterfall from a leopard attack.
Day trips can be organized to visit Chagga villages around the Kilimanjaro area and visit the underground caves which were used by the Chagga villagers during inter-tribal wars, visit waterfalls, schools, witness traditional dances and try out local cuisines and possibly the famous Chagga brew, Mbege.
The Shira route is one of our preferred routes due to its low traffic, beautiful scenery and a high summit success rate. The route starts off from the western side of the mountain towards one among the highest plateaus on Earth! On While at the Cathedral Point, you will enjoy an amazing view of Kibo Peak, the highest Point in Africa!
Arusha National Park
includes the Momela Lakes, Mount Meru and the Ngurdoto Crater. The park has a rich variety of wildlife, but visitors shouldn’t expect the same game-viewing experience they find in other national parks of Tanzania’s northern circuit. Despite the small size of the park, common animals include giraffe, buffalo, zebra, warthog, the black-and-white colobus monkey, the blue monkey, flamingos and more. African elephants and leopards are present, but rarely seen. There are no lions in the park. Birdlife in the forest is prolific, with many forest species more easily seen here than elsewhere on the tourist route.
The Marangu route nicknamed “Coca Cola Route” begins in the eastern side of the mountain. It is the easiest of the Kilimanjaro routes (with about 29% of climbers taking this route every year) but needs at least 5 days to attempt the summit successfully. Unlike other routes such as Machame and Lemosho route, when taking Marangu route, climbers stay overnight in permanent huts and the trail is hardened and well built – there are no any sections that require any scrambling!
