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.

Emma's review for another Migration Venture Africa Ltd tour
“Climbing Kilimanjaro was always going to be an exceptional experience, and it certainly lived up to that. The climb itself was challenging but incredibly rewarding - the support team were dedicated, friendly and professional, ensuring that I had everything I required to succeed.
I was recommended Migration and Kili Expedition through a Tanzanian friend, and was blown away by the level of support given by Amos (the director) outside of the actual climb - personally helping me with my onward travel arrangements and other logistical requirements. It really was like being with a close friend and I thank him for that. It made my overall experience in Moshi and the surrounding area something truly memorable.”

Emma's review for another Migration Venture Africa Ltd tour
“Kilimanjaro trekking with Migration Venture was recommended by a former classmate and I happy that I listened to her advice.Every little detail of our six days Machame route climb was meticulously planned by Amos and his reservations team then perfectly carried out by senior mountain guide Epa and Vitalis his assistant. The climbing equipment was top of the range and in mint condition, tents kept us warm on the coldest nights, mats & sleeping bags comfortable to lie on. We had many great moments and nice surprises during the climb, as we clambered through different vegetation, there were few animals, mainly monkeys but lots of birds which I loved. We had great weather during the trek and it was great to reach the summit.I would not hesitate to recommend Migration Venture to other climbers.”
