There are seven established Mount Kilimanjaro routes which lead to the summit, Uhuru Peak, one of which starts on the Northern side of the mountain and the rest on the Southern side. They are:
1. Northern Circuit Route
2. Lemosho Route
3. Shira Route
4. Machame Route (“Whiskey” Route)
5. Rongai Route
6. Marangu Route (“Coca-Cola” Route)
7. Umbwe Route
The one question we are asked more often than any other is “which is the best route to climb Kilimanjaro”.
This 8 days Kilimanjaro hike takes you through the lemosho route (trail), starting off your hike through a beautiful & remote rain forest, with good chances of seeing wildlife. This trail is nothing other than spectacular, considered the most scenic up the Kilimanjaro & with extra day for acclimatization chances of successful summit ting are higher than ever
This popular route is also known as the Whiskey Route. It is a steep path through magnificent forests leading through the moorland zones to the Shira Plateau. It then traverses beneath the glaciated precipices of the Southern Icefields to join the Barafu Route to the summit.
Marangu Route, commonly known as the Coca Cola Route is more popular because it can be done in fewer days and has permanent sleep huts at the campsites. Summit night from Kibo Hut is steep and passes Gilman’s Point to Uhuru Peak. It is a shorter route with a steeper incline to the summit from the Kibo base camp.
he 4-day and 3-night package has been designed for visitors with both interests in wildlife as well as hiking the highest mountain in Africa, but with limited time. This program takes you to Tarangire National Park (home of the elephants), the Ngorongoro Crater (home of the Big 5), as well as Lake Manyara National Park which is famous for its tree-climbing lions.
