DAY 1: Arrival day, Tent setting and sleep
The drive to Magoroto Forest from Arusha or Kilimanjaro is an adventure in itself. It’s a 6-hour drive on a pretty mountainous terrain so you will be glad to be in a land cruiser or Costar full of friends or family to make the journey seem quicker. Once we begin the drive up the mountain from Muheza, the views are spectacular (although you recommend closing your eyes if you’re afraid of heights!). When we arrive it will already be dark, so we’ll just eat and pitch our tents. You’ll fall asleep easily in the cool mountain air and wake up to this breathtaking view.

The day begins with a breakfast with a view. Magoroto Forest offers a total of eight well documented hiking trails.
