Day 2: 

Breakfast at Lake Duluti. Arrange with the reception staff at the lodge to store your excess luggage.  At 8:30m meet your guide at the Hotel reception and drive to Marangu Gate to register at 10:00am. The drive is around 2hours. Please note that you will need to know your passport numbers in order to complete your registration card. You are advised however to leave your valuables including your passport, in the hotel safe deposit, except for the amount in US Dollars that you will be need for tipping your support staff.

 After breakfast and a short tour briefing from the guide, we will depart to Marangu gate of Kilimanjaro National Park (it is a 45-minute drive from Moshi to the Marangu Gate). After registering with the park authorities, our climb will officially commence with a four-hour walk to the Mandara encampment. We will pass through a thick rainforest zone, where there is a high chance of rain in the afternoon. We will spend the night at Mandara Hut (2,750m), an attractive collection of buildings.
