5 Days Tour

Product Description

The Marangu route is also referred to as the "Coca-Cola" route, as it is considered to be the easiest path on the mountain, given its gradual slope and direct path. It is the oldest and the most well-established route on the Kilimanjaro. This is the only route which offers sleeping huts in dormitory style.

Guests are supplied with mattresses and pillows, but sleeping bags are still required. The huts have communal dining halls, basic washrooms and toilets. Short time frame of the route makes altitude acclimatization fairly difficult.

Kilimanjaro cycling trek gives tourists a new way of experiencing Kilimanjaro adventure. Kilema route is the only route that Bike trek to Kilimanjaro can reach to the top by mountain bike. Kilimanjaro cycling provides physical exercise and recreational use of the natural environment with minimum impact while enhancing visitors’ experience.
