Marangu Route

On this trip we will be summiting Mount Kilimanjaro via the Marangu Route. The only route with hut accommodation, the 42 mile round-trip trek is the oldest and most established route to the summit. The large huts, 60 bunk beds at Mandara and Kibo Huts, and 120 bunk beds at Horombo Hut, offer relief and comfort on the otherwise remote trail. On the way to the summit, trekkers will pass through 5 distinctly different ecological zones, bushland, rain forest, moorland, alpine desert, and arctic. Those on the trek can also expect some amazing views of the surrounding Serengeti grasslands and due to very low levels of light pollution, spectacular views of the night sky including the milky way.
