We are very flexible on our programs making it ideal for friends, family, and any climbers who are on a budget or traveling alone. Solo climbers are also welcome and we will do everything to ensure you enjoy the best of our climb.
The Marangu Route is also known as the “Coca Cola” or “tourist” route. It is the easiest and shortest route to the summit. This is also the only route with the comforts of sleeping huts at every campsite with solar-powered lights and comfortable beds.
This is probably the most beautiful route up Kilimanjaro. Machame route offers strictly tents only for accommodation. This makes the Machame route (also referred to as the "Whiskey route") better suited to the slightly more adventurous hiker, however rewarding him with scenic splendor.
The Rongai Route is easier and more scenic than the Marangu or Machame routes, and the success rate is very high. All climbers sleep in tents (tents are included) and meals are served in a dinner tent or on a blanket outside.
The route starts on the north side of the mountain just south of the Kenyan border.
