Mt Kilimanjaro Trek - Marangu Route
At 5,895 m (19,340 ft), Mt Kilimanjaro is Africa's highest peak and this adventure along the Marangu Route will get you to the top safely, quickly, and with your budget in mind. Overnight in mountain huts and awake ready to conquer the slopes. As a leader in Kili treks, we'll take you to new heights in adventure on your way to the roof of Africa. Affectionately known as the "Coca-Cola Route" due to its popularity, Marangu covers forests, moorlands, and "the Saddle" (a high-altitude desert), on its way to Kibo Hut. This is the easiest route to summit with a catch. The trail is well maintained but because of the quick ascent, the success rate is not as high as other routes.
Sleep in mountain huts on the trek, witness Africa from atop its highest mountain, marvel at sunrise on the summit.
Private minibus, trekking.
Simple hotels (2 nts), mountain huts (4 nts).
