About Kilimanjaro Marangu Route

The Marangu Route, also referred to as the “Coca- Cola” route because of the availability of Coca Cola in the tea huts back in the day, is one of the most popular routes up the mountain. Marangu is the easiest of all the Kilimanjaro routes due to its gradual slope and the removal of obstacles to create a well defined path. Moreover, the sleeping huts are quite comfortable, which eliminates any need for camping. Also known as the “Tourist Route” because of its popularity and relative ease of ascend, Marangu is ideal for people who prefer walking on well-defined paths rather than secluded steep slopes. Because of its relative ease, Marangu is often quite a bit cheaper than other routes.

The minimum number of days from the base to the summit is 5, but it is highly recommended that trekkers spend a day or more for acclimatization for safety reasons and a greater chance of a successful summit. All along the route, there are dormitory-style huts where trekkers can rest overnight. The ascent and descent are on the same path making it the most crowded and one of the least scenic of all the routes, as it only goes through a single part of the mountain. So, only take the Marangu route if you don’t mind crowds. Granted Marangu is not the greatest choice of route, but it is the best route during the rainy season because hut accommodations are generally preferred to camping in wet grounds.

Interesting fact: despite its relative ease, the success rate for the Marangu route is only about 80%. The main reason is that Marangu is selected by lots of people who are unprepared for the Kilimanjaro hike, and have no previous experience of trekking in mountains.

Customer Reviews for Kilimanjaro Marangu Route

5.0 - Excellent Based on 2 reviews
Efficiency, knowledge and courtesy: Experience joy with Migration Kili Expeditions and Safaris Reviewed Tour: Kilimanjaro Day trip
Nigel Camp From England At
5 - Excellent
“I was so impressed by the organisational capacity of the owner of Migration Kili Expeditions and Safaris on my expedition to Kilimanjaro that I asked him to create another custom-made safari for me in which I not only visited Tarangire, Serengeti, Ngorongoro but saw the Olduvai gorge - the birthplace of humanity. The guides on both expeditions were exceptional : Rogath Ephren Mtuy- who not only holds the world record for ascent to the summit of Kilimanjaro and return to Marangu park in 14 hours and 50 min , but is an expert on the local plants and flowers and their healing properties or other uses. Cyprion , my guide on the safari , not only looked after me - erecting tents, managing a superb cook, maneuvering his jeep according to my whims as a photographer , but had a depth of knowledge about, and respect for all the animals and their way of living and being . Both guides clearly loved their work and their courtesy and charm were outstanding.
As an older lone traveler , journalist and photographer, being explicitly catered to , this experience was way beyond expectations : not just what nature had to offer and my increased understanding and respect for other species, but in my trust of the organizer and guides who showed a responsiveness and intelligence, a depth of caring.”
