Swimming Pool

The hotel swimming pool is the perfect place to spend an afternoon relaxing after hiking Kilimanjaro or enjoy time with your family and friends.


There are many beautiful walks in the vicinity of the hotel, through the banana and coffee farms, to rivers and waterfalls and to local markets. For guests that are not climbing the mountain, but would still like to walk in the National Park, day trips can also be arranged to Mandara Hut. Day guides and transportation can be arranged by the hotel upon request.


Marangu is a great place for bird-watchers. A large variety of birds can be seen from the hotel gardens and trained bird guides can be arranged by the hotel for guests interested in a richer bird watching experience. The local bird list is available for download here
