Climbing the highest mountain of Africa is a challenge a real climber want to enjoy on the slopes of the Kilimanjaro – reaching the verlasting snow. You will be guided by experienced specialists with the best material. Commonly known as the “Coca-Cola route”,Marangu is by far the most popular route to the summit of Kilimanjaro. This could partly be as a result of the fact that the Marangu is the least expensive route, but more so, perhaps the fact that it is possible to do the Marangu route in 5 days, thereby getting to the summit one day earlier than on the Machame route
