5 Days Mount Kilimanjaro Climb-Marangu Route.

Safari Overview.

The Mount Kilimanjaro 5-Day climb via the Marangu route is a popular choice for budget conscious climbers who prefer spending fewer days on the summit of the mountain. This route involves four nights of accommodation in huts. The Kilimanjaro Marangu route offers a relatively easier ascent to the summit and has been successful for many trekkers, thanks for the extra day allocated for acclimatization to the altitude.

Following the trail, we will arrive at the Mandara encampment within approximately four hours. If you wish, you can take a side trip to Maundi Crater, a magnificent viewpoint offering panoramic vistas of Northern Tanzania and Kenya.

 Today, we bid farewell to the rainforest and ascend through an open moorland. Along the way, you will be treated to breathtaking views of the Mawenzi peaks and the majestic summit of Kibo. This portion of the trek will take around six hours, and we will spend the night at the Horombo Hut (3720 meters) nestled in a valley adorned with giant lobelias and groundsels, which are characteristic of this semi-alpine zone. It’s possible to start experiencing the effects of altitude at this stage.

 Todays Hike Time: 6-8 Hours Up To Summit 6 Km/4 Miles And Descent 15km/9 Miles Down After midnight around 2 am in the morning, we begin our climb to reach the summit. The beginning of this climb is done in the dark and requires headlamps or flashlights. On steep and heavy scree with snow, we will reach Gilman’s point (5861 meters), located on the crater rim. We continue our trek of 2-4 hours to ascend Uhuru Peak, which is the highest point in Africa. There are unbelievable views take made this climb worth it! Have your picture taken at the summit; this will be a lifelong lasting memory. From here we descend and stop over for lunch and rest at Kibo hut, before continuing on to the Horombo encampment for overnight.

 Hiking Time: 4-5 Hours, 20km/12.5 Miles After breakfast, a steady descent takes us down through moorland to the Mandara Hut.
