Let's Start Planning

Kilimanjaro's Marangu Route: The Classic Hut-to-Hut Adventure – A World Wide Safaris Expedition


Begin on the well-trodden Marangu Route, often called the “Coca-Cola” route for its hut accommodations and availability of refreshments along the way. This classic path offers a unique Kilimanjaro experience, combining rewarding trekking with comfortable overnight stays in mountain huts. With World Wide Safaris, you’ll discover the beauty and challenge of Kilimanjaro on this popular route.


Upon arrival at Kilimanjaro International Airport, you'll be warmly welcomed by our World Wide Safaris team and transferred to your comfortable accommodations in Arusha. Take some time to rest, acclimate to the altitude, and prepare for your upcoming adventure. In the evening, enjoy a delicious dinner and briefing from your expert guides, setting the stage for your Kilimanjaro trek.

After breakfast, we'll drive to Marangu Gate, the starting point of your Kilimanjaro trek. The trail ascends through lush rainforests, where you'll encounter unique flora and fauna. After a few hours of hiking, you'll arrive at Mandara Hut, your cozy accommodation for the night. Enjoy a warm meal and settle in for a restful evening.

Today's hike takes you through the changing landscape of Kilimanjaro, as you ascend from the rainforest to the moorland zone. The trail winds through picturesque valleys and offers stunning views of the surrounding peaks. After a challenging but rewarding day, you'll reach Horombo Hut, where you'll enjoy dinner and a well-deserved rest.

Today is an important acclimatization day, as you ascend to higher altitudes. The trail climbs through alpine desert terrain, with the vegetation becoming increasingly sparse. Upon arrival at Kibo Hut, you'll have an early dinner and rest before your final push to the summit.

The summit day begins in the early hours of the morning, under a starry sky. As you ascend, you'll witness a breathtaking sunrise over the African plains. After reaching Uhuru Peak, the highest point on the continent, you'll begin your descent, stopping at Kibo Hut for a short rest before continuing to Horombo Hut for the night.

On your final day of trekking, you'll descend through the rainforest, retracing your steps to Marangu Gate. After saying goodbye to your porters and guides, you'll be transferred back to Arusha, where you can relax and reflect on your amazing journey.
