Tour Deatails

Marangu route it is known as “Coca-Cola” , Marangu approaches Kilimanjaro from the southeast of the Mountain. It is the oldest established route.

Spending an extra acclimatization day on the mountain is highly recommended, maximizing the chance of reaching to the summit. Marangu is the only route which offers sleeping huts in dormitory style accommodations. This tour with a 3 day safari option is a great way to experience some of Tanzania’s amazing wildlife within a short period of time. This compact Kilimanjaro & safari is ideal for those who are on a tight schedule , A visit to Tarangire and Lake Manyara National Parks as well as the Ngorongoro Crater offers the best wildlife viewing experience for these three days.
