Safari Highlights

Known as the “Coca-Cola” route, the Marangu route is a classic trek on Mount Kilimanjaro. It is the oldest, most well established route. Many favour the Marangu route because it is considered to be the easiest path on the mountain, due to its more gradual slope. It is also the only route which offers sleeping huts with dormitory style accommodation. There are 60 bunk beds at both Mandara and Kibo Huts, and 120 bunk beds at Horombo Hut. Guests are supplied with mattresses and pillows, but sleeping bags are still required. The huts have communal dining halls and basic washrooms, ranging from flushing toilets and running water at the lower huts to long drop toilets and buckets of water at Kibo Hut.

  • Day 3 : Rest Day at Horombo Hut

  • Day 4 : Hike Horombo Hut to Kibo Hut

Day By Day Itnerary

It’s really beautiful. It feels like God visits everywhere else but lives in Africa.

Day 1 : Drive to Kilimanjaro National Park Marangu Gate, Hike to Mandara Hut

After breakfast and briefing, drive to the Kilimanjaro National Park Gate (about 1 hour),

register and commence the trek. Walk through the rainforest to the Mandara Huts. A side trip to Maundi Crater is a good way to see the surroundings including Northern Tanzania and Kenya. In the rainforest, look for towering Eucalyptus trees, bird life, and Colobus monkeys.
  • Accommodation: Camp Mandara Hut
  • Meals Planed: B.L & D

Day 2 : Hike Mandara Hut to Horombo Hut

You leave the glades of the rain-forest and follow an ascending path on the open moorlands to the Horombo Huts.

Views of Mawenzi and the summit of Kibo are amazing. Look for giant lobelias and grounsels. You may begin to feel the affects of the altitude.

  • Accommodation: Camp Horombo Hut
  • Meals Planed: B.L & D

Day 3 : Rest Day at Horombo Hut

Rest day at Horombo Hut with optional hike by Mawenzi Peak.

....

  • Accommodation: Camp Horombo Hut
  • Meals Planed: B.L & D

Day 4 : Hike Horombo Hut to Kibo Hut

Ascending, we now pass the last watering point, walking onto the saddle of Kilimanjaro between the peaks of Kibo and Mawenzi.

Vegetation begins with upper heath-land but then disappears into “moonscape”. Dinner, rest, and prepare for summit climb.

  • Accommodation: Camp Kibo Hut
  • Meals Planed: B.L & D

Day 5 : Hike Kibo Hut to Summit, and down to Horombo Hut

Very early in the morning (midnight to 2am), commence the climb to the summit on steep and heavy scree or snow up to Gilman’s point located on the crater rim.

Continuing, we now ascend to Uhuru Peak, which is the highest point in Africa. There are unbelievable views at every turn. Have your picture taken at the summit to show your friends and family. From here we descend, stopping for lunch and a rest at Kibo before continuing on to the Horombo Huts. The beginning of this climb is done in the dark and requires headlamps or flashlights. It will be very cold until you start descending, so you will need all of your warm layers. This is by far the most difficult part of the trek with many switchbacks. Going slowly “pole pole” and an optimistic attitude will get you there!

  • Accommodation: Camp Horombo Hut
  • Meals Planed: B.L & D

Day 6 : Hike Horombo Hut to trail head, drive to Arusha

After breakfast, a steady descent takes us down through moorland to the Mandara Hut.

Continue descending through lush forest path to the National Park gate at Marangu. At lower elevations, it can be wet and muddy. Gaiters and trekking poles will help. Shorts and t-shirts will probably be plenty to wear (keep rain gear and warmer clothing handy). True Lion King Safaris vehicle will meet you at Marangu gate to drive you back to your hotel in Arusha (about 1 hour).
