 Kilimanjaro – Marangu  Route


This route, the most popular and used by visitors to Kilimanjaro, will take us to the top in a faster and safer way, but no less fun. At the beginning of the route and at the end of it we will have the possibility of seeing colobus monkeys as well as other mammals and birds. We will cross its dense jungle, moors and “the saddle” (a high altitude desert), on the way to the Kibo refuge, our base camp from where we will attack the Uhuru peak. During the ascent we will always have the support of the entire Safari Bike Africa crew. We will spend the night in wooden huts set up as mountain shelters.
