Tour Overview

The Marangu Route trekking route is used by nearly 50% of all climbers who visit Mount Kilimanjaro and provides comfortable mountain huts with solar power lighting that you will be able to stay in if you wish. Although the trail is busy, the views of Mount Kilimanjaro and the lands around it are beautiful and as each day of walking progresses through a different climate zone you will enjoy a fantastic experience that very few people will have the opportunity to do.  The Marangu Route is suitable for beginners or those who are short of time but still wish to experience the beauty of Mount Kilimanjaro and Tanzania. The trip takes 3 days of climbing and 2 overnight stays.

Day by Day Overview

After breakfast at the lodge, we will transfer straight to the gate. After completing the entrance formalities at the National Park gate (1,830 m), we then climb up through attractive and unspoilt forest to reach the clearing containing the Mandara Huts (2,700 m).

Hiking time: 3-5hrs
Meals: Hot lunch and dinner

The first part of the walk is a steep ascent through rain forest, but the path soon opens out onto grassy moorland and in clear weather there are great views of Kibo and Mawenzi Peaks. We climb steadily through the moorland zone, containing giant heather and occasional stands of groundsel, eventually we reach the hut complex at Horombo (3,720 m).

Hiking time: 6-7hrs
Meals: Breakfast, hot lunch and dinner

After breakfast at Horombo Camp, we retrace our steps with a pleasant moorland walk to Mandara and then a lovely forest walk that returns us to the National Park gates.

Hiking time: 7-8hrs
Meals: Breakfast and hot lunch
