We’ve done a fair bit of group travel in our time, that’s how we all met! And we love the fact that although you may land as a solo traveller, you always come back from an adventure with genuine friends. Our mission at GoPackme is to get your adventure started before you leave for a trip with us. We’ll coordinate a community which allows you to meet face to face with your fellow trip-mates in advance of you actually heading off. Meaning that those who share the trip with you are familiar faces you already know. All of this is done with the ambition of making group travel more accessible and inevitably more fun. Some of the best trips we have been on were inspired by hearing about them from other travellers. We want to keep passing on that inspiration to others, and invite you to share your travel stories and tips with our community and future travel buddies.

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.
