The Marangu route is easily the most popular way of climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro. Not only is Marangu the least expensive option, it is also shorter as it makes it possible to climb to the summit sooner.

The Marangu route is a classic trek to the top of Kilimanjaro. However, it has the least scenic variety of all routes (ascent and descent are done on the same path) and is the most crowded for that reason. It is the only route which offers sleeping huts in dormitory style accommodations. There are 60 bunk beds each at Mandara and Kibo Huts, and 120 bunk beds at Horombo Hut.

Many favor the Marangu route because it is considered to be the easiest path on the mountain, given its gradual slope and direct path. Known as the "Coca-Cola" route, it approaches Kilimanjaro from the southeast. It is the oldest, most well-established route.

The minimum days required for this route is five, although the probability of successfully reaching the top in that time period is quite low. Spending an extra acclimatization day on the mountain is highly recommended.

“We were picked up on time from our hotel, joined by other members of the party, and set off to Tarangire. There were loads of animals and our driver got up-close to as many as possible. We had lunch there, very substantial, and after touring a bit more we st off for the Lodge for the night. We were disappoined with the accommodation at the lodge, which is why I've only given a 4. Next morning we went to the crater where there were large herds of many animals. We saw everything but rhino. After lunch we returned to Arusha”
