The Marangu Route is the oldest on Kilimanjaro and is also one of the most popular – mainly because it is the only route on the mountain that has huts provided for hikers.
In Kilimanjaro Machame route, all climbers sleep in tents (tents are included) and meals are served in a dinner tent. It is done over 6 days, so acclimatization is easier, and the success rate is fairly high.
The Machame Route can be completed in 6 or 7 days. We mostly recommend the 7 day Machame Route over the 6 day Machame Route to allow more time to acclimatize to the high altitude.
The Lemosho Route is a very scenic hiking route, starting on the western slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro before merging with the Machame Route half way through.
The Rongai Route is the only trail that starts from the Northern, or Kenyan side of Mount Kilimanjaro. Because of its remote location the route offers trekkers a relatively unspoiled wilderness experience.
Marangu route in 5 days, easiest and shortest route to the summit. This is not always the best way, due to a shorter acclimatization period.
Lemosho route is very scenic as you pass through the west kilimanjaro captivation local farms area. You pass through a forest vegetation towards the parks gate. The route is unspoilt and beautiful way up to the Shira Plateau while climbing Mount Kilimanjaro.
The only route that approaches Kilimanjaro from the north, the ascent profile and conditions are very much in similar to Marangu. It is a fairly easy route and climb to the top is steady and gradual. Moreover, the crowd has fewer tourists and it passes through remote wilderness areas. Rongai also offer game viewing opportunities…
