  • Marangu Route is the easiest and shortest route to Kilimanjaro’s summit
The Marangu Route has been referred to as the ‘Coca Cola’ route and this has led potential climbers to think that it is an easy route to the summit. This is far from the truth to be honest! The fact that it requires a minimum of 5 days to complete it does not mean that it is easier than any other route. The only reason that people say it is easier is because it is the only route up Kilimanjaro where you sleep in huts as opposed to tents. An optional acclimatization day at Horombo Huts is highly recommended for those with no prior trekking in altitude experience under their belt. Advance booking of hut accommodation is required to avoid any inconveniences. The route starts from the park headquarters in the village of Marangu and heads straight westwards towards Kibo. The trail goes through lush rainforest, heath and moorland to alpine desert and ultimately the arctic zone at the peak and same route down.

“It was my first time to climb Mountain and I am so excited to reach to the top roof of Africa that was a great and fantastic feeling to be there; I used 7 Days Kilimanjaro Trekking via Machame route as a solo hiker. Though Machame route ( “whisky route” ) seems to be a challenging one but worth it for a successful and great victory rate.”

“A group of close friends booked our Kilimanjaro climb through Kilisa Tours & Safaris and would highly recommend their services. During the booking process Naick always responded promptly to emails and provided us with all the necessary information to prepare for the trek

The guides for Kilimanjaro (Bakari, Gooduck, and Daniel) were the absolute best. Our group of 4 all summited and it was one of the best experiences ever. We couldn't have done it without them and it's hard to explain how phenomenal they were. The porters and additional support staff were also incredible, and were never not friendly, supportive, or happy.

After Kilimanjaro we went for safari and was excellent too. A great quality Jeep and our guide was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. All the lodges we stayed at were some of the best places I've ever stayed.

I'd highly recommend Kilisa Tours for exploring what central Tanzania has to offer.”

“We had very good experience with Kilisa Tours on our 7 days Machame Kilimanjaro climb

Their guides are professional and speak very good English! I owe my success summit Kilimanjaro to Bakari, Daniel, who made sure that we are comfortable at each stage. Special mention to the food provided during the trek- it was both delicious and healthy.

The prices are the best and camping was to our satisfaction. Naick the owner did utmost to answer all our questions and advised correctly. They made sure we had a Memorable life time experience.”
