We spent some hours in Marangu, hiking in its forests and visiting a coffee plantation and waterfalls. We really enjoyed our stay in this area of Tanzania and we were able to see how the area around the Mount Kilimanjaro is.

Thank you so much for posting your review! Our family are coming to Tanzania and are looking into a day hike from the Marangu gate to the huts and back through lush dense forests. But other than views of plant life, there do not appear to be any views of Kilimanjaro. It's 7 + hour round trip hike, long way to go for that. What did you think of the 3 hours in the forest? we are with our 15 and 12 year old, both strong hikers, but we need an incentive to hike through the forest. We love forests and have no doubt it will be beautiful; Costa Rica we did such a hike, but it can be monotonous and with such little time in Tanzania we would so appreciate your impressions of the day hike through the Marangu forest. And I noticed that you hiked to the crater, where you had views, do you think that would be worth the trek? Does anyone know of any other day treks that offer open views like starting in the western side at the Londorossi gate; continue by car to Morum Barrier Gate and thereafter the hike of Mt. Kilimanjaro through heather and moorland to the first camp Shira Camp. There are views over to Kibo across the Plateau that we hear are breathtaking. Then we hike back to Morum Barrier. We are staying at the Maasai-Amini village on the west side. Thanks so much for your input. Thanks for your input and help. Any chance there are any other day hikes up any other route with open plain views? What about starting on Western side of the mountain? start at the Londorossi gate; continue by car to Morum Barrier Gate and thereafter the hike of Mt. Kilimanjaro through heather and moorland to the first camp Shira Camp. There are views over to Kibo across the Plateau that we hear are breathtaking. Then we hike back to Morum Barrier. We are staying at the Maasai-Amini village on the west side. Thanks for your input and help.

Well its very true of what you've just wrote...regarding to a hike at the Marangu...its worthy taking it though with the 12 yrs boy you'll probably use more than the required time in walking.Normally its a 3hours hike and 45... More
