6 Days Climbing

For conquering the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest peak and the world’s tallest freestanding mountain (5.895 m) we offer you 3 routes that suit every trekkers experience and fitness.


Kilimanjaro Marangu Route.

The Marangu route is our recommendation for a 5 days climbing experience at Kilimanjaro. This route, known as the “Coca-Cola” route, is the original route established to climb the mount, being the shortest and most direct, and using the same ascent and descent path. Despite being less scenic than others and having a shorter period to acclimatize, it’s the only route where camping is not necessary, giving you the possibility to sleep in mountain huts along the way. This route is the best suited for beginners and those in need of comfortable conditions.
