5-day Mount Kilimanjaro climb via the Marangu route

5-day Mount Kilimanjaro climb via the Marangu route | Tanzania

Reach Africa's highest peak, with this 5-day climb to Mount Kilimanjaro summit in Tanzania, via the gradual Marangu route, along experienced guides from the Sirikwa Travel team.

5 Days

Jan, Feb, Sep - Dec




* Reach the summit of the iconic Mt. Kilimanjaro, Africa's highest peak

* Follow the Marangu route, the most popular way to the summit

* Sleep in comfortable mountain huts along the route


Join us on this 5-day tour in Tanzania and reach the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro via the Marango route, the most popular way to the summit of Africa’s highest peak.

Also known as the “Coca-Cola” route, the Marango is the only route to Mount Kilimanjaro offering comfortable sleeping huts along the way instead of camps. In just 5 days, you will hike along the most straight track to the summit of Kilimanjaro, along experienced guides and with the assistance of porters.

The Marangu route is a great option, as it is a gradual and steady climb, without much difficulty, although it is not the most scenic route as the ascent and descent are done through the same path. Also bear in mind acclimatization is not that easy due to the short time frame of this trip.   

Starting from Moshi to Marangu Gate, our trek begins towards Mount Kilimanjaro’s summit, through the southeast face, ascending through a tropical rainforest until we reach the Mandara Hut. We will spend the next days, hiking to the Horombo Hut and Kibo Hut.

On the fourth day, we will reach Uhuru Peak ( 5895m), the highest point in Kilimanjaro, enjoying spectacular views over the African plains from the top, descending back to Horombo Hut. Finally, on the last day of our tour, a long 20-kilometer trek takes us downhill, back to the Marangu gate, and from there to our hotel in Moshi.

Just contact us if you want to join us on this unique experience in Tanzania! Book your place and come for an unforgettable climb to Africa’s highest mountain.

What people are saying about Sirikwa



We had an amazing time during our journey to the summit of Lenana . It was really difficult but with the help and accurate direction of our guide , James, we were able to reach the summit just to eclipse our eyes with the sunrise. I will never forget the images and the feeling of accomplishment from the top . During our ascendant we had a wonderful team of driver , porters , cook and guide : Willis, bernard, terrace, Joseph, jackelin, Simon , Tim and James ; all of them gave to us a warm welcome, always smiling and making sure we were confortable and mostly safe. The only discomfort was at Shipton camp where the conditions are really precarious. It looks like no one care about honouring the beauty of nature that surround the camp. They ( rock mountain hotel ) should respect such a lovely location, be proud and take measurements to have a camp on the level that the site offers. We really felt like sleeping in a pig pen 1 toilet for 20 people with bumped beds with not ladders and no space between one another . Really it is a place that need URGENTLY a remake . With regard on the main agency EXPLORE-SHARE ; we experienced an issue post booking . We did not received clear information, our question where not answered , etc . Fortunately , Nicky came and sorted out everything for us ( grateful forever) she made the changes needed and we finally got the best ( Siriwa travel). In short “UNIQUE EXPERIENCE, where challenge is constantly surrounded by a great scenery in a huge National Park”. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️



You did not give a detailed packing list for this trekking. it would be nice if you already to give the option to stay in the Austrian Hut (we did) . The daily description could be better. The first day we walked 5 km and the last day 9km. The other days we walked 7-8 hours
