Zara Tours guides treks up the Marangu Route, which is the easiest and shortest route to Kilimanjaro's summit and is known as the "Coca Cola" or "tourist" route. This is the only route on Kilimanjaro with the comforts of solar-powered sleeping huts and comfortable beds at every camp. The huts are communal, and each bunk has a sponge mattress and pillow. There are 60 beds at both Mandara and Kibo Huts and 120 beds at Horombo Hut. Bathrooms and running water are available at the two lower huts. Basic men's and ladies' latrines are available at the last camp.

All climbing groups, often from several countries around the world, share meals in dining huts providing a jovial and energetic atmosphere. Soft drinks, bottled water, and beer may be for sale at the huts. Bring Tanzanian money to purchase these items (prices increase with elevation).

This route can be done in 6 days if you're fast, but in order to do it safely, we will spend 7 days as 6 days is sometimes not enough for proper acclimatization.

“We took a weeklong a trip to Tanzania to celebrate our fifth anniversary with Zara Tours. They were pretty flexible and adjusted the itinerary to fit into our needs. We did the 6 days Kilimanjaro trekking with a very experienced crew of guides, porters and cook. They took time to teach us about the mountain; terrain, trees, birds that we encountered on the climb. Equipment was great, food was amazing and the actual experience to the summit memorable. I would recommend this operator as the best for Kilimanjaro.”
