The Mt. Kilimanjaro Marangu Route is a popular route on which nights are spent in huts and meals are taken in dining halls. It is the only route that ascends and descends using the same path and is often referred to as the “Coca-Cola” route. Hut accommodations are some of the main features of this route, offering the relative luxury of being able to sleep in covered lodging along the entire route. Mineral water, soft drinks, chocolate and beer are also sold at all the camps along this route.

The trek starts from the gate of Mt. Kilimanjaro National Park, about 50-minute drive from your hotel. The Marangu route passes through rainforests (which teems with birds and colobus and other monkeys), alpine meadows and lush vegetation (with giant lobelias and senecios) until you reach the snowy summit. At some spots along the route, you will have magnificent views of snow-laden peaks of Kilimanjaro, Kibo and Mawenzi.

Mt. Kilimanjaro climbing is composed of a number of crew which includes the chief guide, assistant guide, cook and porters. This professional group has undergone extensive training to ensure the safety and comfort of climbers during the challenging trek.

“My experience with Migration Venture Africa was nothing but positive. I planned a 7 day Kilimanjaro trip with a friend. They were great with communication via email and setting things up even before I arrived. Everyone that works for the company was very kind and helpful to us. Migration Venture Africa gave a very personal and reliable service that you can't find with the larger companies. They are also one of the only companies based out of the small town of Moshi rather than Arusha and all of their workers are locally hired. The company itself is also locally owned, which is not always the case with the bigger companies. Prior to our trek, we met with our mountain guides to do a precheck for gear and to talk about what to expect. We were picked up at our hotel by the guides and our porters, where we all went together to the mountain gate. The gear provided was sleeping bags (the NorthFace), sleeping pads, a tent, and a dining tent with table, chairs etc. Higher on the mountain they also provided hot water bottles for our sleeping bags to keep warm. The meals during the trek were great, with hot meals in the morning and night and a box lunch for a mid-day meal. There was always more than enough food and the variety of food was great too. All food was safely prepared and no one on our trek was ever ill from food or water. The guides were very attentive to our needs. Our entire group made it to the summit and back down with no troubles. We even made it to the top in time for the sunrise, which was amazing. If you are looking for a company that cares about you and not just money, then I would recommend MIGRATION VENTURE AFRICA LTD.”

“Amos was our main contact and he was always quick to respond with any information that we needed as well as being very accommodating to our needs. The guides for the trek were also great, helping us along every step of the way. Would definitely recommend Migration for any of their offered trips or even for organising a custom itinerary!”
