We have daily departure for these tour. Please email us any additional requirement you need and we will be happy to organize is it.

MARANGU ROUTE

This is the easiest route to climb Kilimanjaro, This route is also referred to as the Coca-Cola Route. Pm Marangu route you will climb gently through forests, moorlands and then across The Saddle, a high-altitude desert separating the main summit, Kibo, 5895m, from craggy Mawenzi, 5149m, to Kibo Hut.

From Kibo Hut an early start is made for the ascent to Uhuru Point (the top of Kibo). The path zigzags up steep scree which is easier to climb when frozen.You will be rewarded with spectacular views from the crater rim at Gillman's Point. Uhuru Peak lies just above.
