The 5-day climbing Kilimanjaro via Marangu route is one of the most popular routes to the summit of the famous Mount Kilimanjaro. The route enables the climber to reach the summit one day earlier as compared to the Machame route. This route does, however, offer you the option of spending an extra acclimatisation day on the mountain if needed.

This route offers the relative luxury of being able to sleep in shared huts along the entire route. Mineral water, soft drinks, chocolates and beer are also sold at all the camps on this route. All your equipment and supplies are portered and a cook prepares all your meals.

“Our only ladies group from Germany trekking Kilimanjaro 9Days Northern route with Dahlia was the experience of a lifetime. As a beginner hiker but masters adventurers, I wanted to hike camp to camp very fast than anyone to celebrate a major birthday 45th with my two sisters. Dahlia tours planned and prepared a fantastic experience for us. Before the trip, they explained the itinerary and sent detailed information about what to pack and what to expect in Tanzania and especially Kilimanjaro. Catherine, our tour advisor sent an email to each person welcoming us and sharing her personal thoughts and recommendations about the hike. The guide Samwell patiently took care of all of our needs and answered every question along the trail. I will, "trust my boots" more in the future because of Samwell he perfectly timed our treks so well, our porters and chef made delicious meals each day we even had pizza on the mountain! The gear that Dahlia tours provides is in excellent condition and easy to use. The drive to and from the Climbing gate was a bonus as both drivers were well versed in particular Tanzania and were happy to share their experiences. I highly recommend this hike to fully experience the Mount Kilimanjaro.”

“Dahlia Africa suggested this route to us as it is 9 days which minimizes your risk of altitude sickness due to more acclimatization time. At many points we felt as though we were the only people on the mountain due to the route being a less commonly used one. Dahlia Africa were faultless from beginning to end, our guides Linus and Brian were extremely knowledgeable and motivational, keeping our spirits high at some of the trickier points of the track. The food cooked for us by Asha, the chef, was always delicious and she always ensured we were happy with what was on the menu so we were getting enough food to keep us going.”

“If we could give this safari tour company more than five stars, we would. They helped us in creating a truly EPIC African Safari & KILIMANJARO TREKKING!! Everything exceeded our expectations. We told them our interests and priorities for the trip and our agents worked hard to make sure it was all we wanted and more. Even after a few changes with travel dates.
Our safari tour designer provided absolutely professional and first-class service. Every booking and guide, porters, driver and staff person we met were exemplary, and the suggestions they made for us were fantastic. As first-time travelers to Africa, with group of 10 students we had many questions, and our agent responded promptly and in detail to all our questions. Brian, the company’s managing director and his partner met with us in person not once but twice - that level of service is something we have not encountered before. Our Kili guide and Safari driver was one of the most knowledgeable and friendly tour staffs we have ever met - we were sad to leave them. We cannot recommend this safari tour company highly enough! Our expectations were high, and they were exceeded!”
