The Marangu route, often called the 'Coca-Cola route', is used by almost 50% of all climbers and has comfortable mountain huts with solar power lighting. The views are beautiful and each day of walking progresses through a different climate zone. The real highlight is the walk from Gilman's Point along the crater rim to Uhuru Peak, passing close to spectacular glaciers and ice cliffs. The views on a clear morning are magnificent, with the Rift Valley, Mt. Meru, and the Masai Steppes clearly visible. We also add an extra day to the standard five day itinerary to ensure maximum acclimatisation.
We have our own dedicated Kilimanjaro team, led by Samson Lauwo, the great grandson of the famous 'Mzee Lauwo' who led Hans Mayer, the first European to summit the mountain in 1889.
Having our own team means we can easily arrange a trek on any date you wish, and accommodate your trekking needs.
For our Kilimanjaro treks we can pick you up from either Kilimanjaro Airport or Arusha Airport. The treks include airport transfers, two nights bed and breakfast, all park fee's, camping equipment, 3 meals a day and the services of our expert guides, porters and cooks.
