KILIMANJARO MARANGU ROUTE
7 days and 6 nights (5 days on the mountain)

Main and most popular route. Besides the peaks and moorland, the park consists of montage forest with relics of old vegetation. Also, significant numbers of mammals, birds, and insects inhabit the area. We avoid the crowded Marangu route on Kilimanjaro, preferring to approach the mountain from the north by the lightly used Rongai route. Mammals include elephants, buffaloes, elands, duickers, foxes, leopards, baboons, black and white colobus monkeys, blue monkeys. The area is also frequented by a variety of colourful birds.

MACHANE ROUTE (WHISKY)
(6 days on the mountain)

Highly recommended the Machame because taking an extra day during the climb allows for a slower pace, and gives hikers more time to adjust to the altitude, which reduces altitude sickness. The Machame route approaches Kilimanjaro through forest and moorland from the south – west and joins the Shira route before traversing beneath the southern ice fields of Kibo.
