Tour Details

6 Days Climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro Marangu route. Hiking on the ‘rooftop of Africa’ -the highest point on the continent at 5896 metres. Its  the adventure of a lifetime and more importantly because if paced well, everyone from seasoned trekkers to first-time enthusiasts can scale the snowy peak. Firstly, once inside the park, thick lowland forest covers the lower altitudes and breaks into alpine meadows once the air begins to thin. Secondly, near the peak landscape is harsh and barren, with rocks and ices are predominant features above a breathtaking African view. This package offers you an opportunity to Climb Mount Kilimanjaro through the most gradual trek – the Marangu Route.

Book your safari journey with us and have an unforgettable wildlife experience.

This Type of safari is based on Hotel, Lodges and Tented Lodge.
