Sometimes known as the ‘Coca Cola’ route, because it is the most popular route up the mountain, the Marangu Route is in fact followed by ninety percent of all climbers. It has a well defined path, which has been well set out and where most obstacles have been modified to make them ‘climber friendly’. Accommodation on this route is in purpose built mountain huts providing adequate shelter and even bottled water, beer and soft drinks (at high altitude prices!).

    Team Kilimanjaro were excellent throughout, particularly the head guide, and the assistant guides. The operation was faultless from start to finish and their good humour, knowledge and expertise ensured we all made it to the top. The food was incredible given the surroundings and the friendliness and attentiveness of the porters really helped us keep going. It doesn’t surprise me now having experienced it that they have such a high success rate.
