Climb Tanzania’s Mount Kilimanjaro, affectionately known as ‘Kili’; Africa’s highest mountain at 5895m, on this 7 day tour, which takes you via the Marangu route. Although the easiest and shortest route, at 5 days duration from the south-east side of the mountain, the Marangu route is still a serious climb. The trail approaches from the south side of Mawenzi and passes near two viewpoints at Maundi Crater, before heading up through rainforests and moorland to heathland and moonscape at higher elevation. The final push to the top takes you to famous Gillman’s Point and onto Uhuru at 5895m.
Solar-powered sleeping huts and comfortable beds are among the enticements of this tour, these being unique to the Marangu route, allowing you to tick Mount Kilimanjaro off your bucket list in style!
