GoPackme to Kilimanjaro
At 5,895 meters, Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain in Africa and the highest free-standing mountain in the world! Don’t let this scare you – to the delight of trekkers and hiking enthusiasts worldwide, reaching the summit is not a technical climb; there are no special skills or technical equipment required. Put one determined foot in front of the other for five days, and you can stand proudly on the rooftop of Africa…keep at it for one more day, and you’ll be back in your cozy hotel for a hot shower and an ice-cold drink!
4th February – 11th February 2022
The Marangu Route
The Marangu Route is a classic trek on Mount Kilimanjaro, being the oldest and most established route. Many favour the Marangu route because it is considered the easiest path on the mountain, given its gradual slope. It is also the only route that offers sleeping huts in dormitory-style accommodations. This means warmer, more comfortable nights of sleep without the hassle of tents.
You can climb up Marangu in five days, but we will be adding a day of acclimatization to make the hike easier on the body and more comfortable.
Although it’s the easiest route, Marangu should not be taken lightly – having a reasonable fitness level will ensure that you reach the summit. Marangu’s drawback is that being the most popular route, it is also the most crowded. That being said, we’ve timed our trek in February when there are 60% fewer climbers, compared to the high season (June, July, August). Don’t worry – the weather in February is still ideal for summiting.
With a ratio of three staff members per hiker, you will be joined by our team leaders, our local guides, and a solid team of porters.
