5-day Kilimanjaro ascent via the Marangu route

The team of guides and local porters of Congema can guide you up to the top of Kilimanjaro through the Marangu route in 5 days, the fastest possible way!

Not specified

5 Days

Jan, Feb, Mar, Sep, Oct




If you're in good shape, love demanding challenges and want to reach Africa's highest point in the fastest possible way, then this 5-day Kilimanjaro ascent via the Marangu route is your perfect choice!

The Marangu route is also known as the "Coca-Cola" route, because you can find Coke in every hut on the way up. It approaches Mount Kilimanjaro from the southeast and it's the oldest and fastest established route. It's also considered to be the easiest way up, because of its gradual slope and direct path.

Plus it offers sleeping huts, with dormitory style accommodation, all along the way. But, although you'll have your own mattress and pillow in every hut, you'll still need a sleeping bag.

This 5-day program is the minimum amount of time required to summit the Kilimanjaro. It's a direct way up, with no acclimatization extra days, so you'll need to be in good shape.

This 5-day Kilimanjaro ascent via the Marangu route is a challenging way to reach this beautiful summit. Send me a request now and we’ll start organizing your trip!

Mountain Leader

Please get in touch with me if you are interested by coming to Tanzania, for climbing Mount Kilimanjaro or any other exiting adventure you wish to experience !
Our company was established with the aim of promoting both local and global tourism. May I say that nowhere else will you feel really in Tanzania than at our organisation. Years of experience have taught us to prepare special programs that take you off the beaten tracks (eg. Rubondo National Park, Gombe National Park, Lake Eyasi, Ngorongoro Crater Highland, Lake Natron, Oldonyo Lengai mountains, Longido Mountains and Monduli Mountains).
This of course, is in addition to the already popular places of Tarangire, Lake Manyara, the Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater and Mount Kilimanjaro in the North, and Selous, Mikumi, Ruaha and Udzungwa in the South. Last but not least beach holidays on the islands of Zanzibar, Mafia and Pemba are also among our programs. Some National Parks extension trips in Kenya and Gorilla tracking Safaris in Uganda and Rwanda are coordinated as well.
We have something to satisfy anyone's budget, from single seats on a vehicle safari, to exclusive safaris, incentive tours, educational and cultural safaris, ecological tours, and face-to-face safaris. You have the option to choose our basic "Canvas Safaris" or let us arrange a stay at luxury 5-star hotels.

What people are saying about Constantine



Nous sommes parti faire l'ascension du Kilimandjaro du 30 aout au 5 septembre 2017 avec le support d'Explore-Share qui nous a déjà accompagné il y a 2 ans pour l'ascension à ski de l'Elbrouz. Cette aventure sur le plan physique, sur la découverte de nouveaux paysages montagneux totalement différents des Alpes, des montagnes Européennes auxquels nous sommes un peu habitués (je précise que nous sommes 2 amis de longues dates, Alain : guide de haute montagne et moniteur de ski, et moi Sébastien : pilote de ligne et moniteur de ski), fut fabuleuse, et exceptionnelle sur le plan humain. Nous étions accompagnés par toute une équipe de guides, cuisinier, et porteurs tout au long de ces 7 jours; et ces personnes furent le mets exquis de ce voyage, toujours souriants, encourageants, tellement gentils dans le plus noble et beau sens du terme. Je tiens à remercier tout particulièrement l'ensemble des porteurs, le guide Elly qui a mené cette belle ascension, l'agence Congema, et son responsable Constantine qui a géré l'administratif, et bien sûr Explore-Share avec Gauthier Poncelet qui nous a permis une nouvelle fois de vivre une semaine, et un voyage merveilleux gravés dans nos mémoires.
