One of the most exceptional African experiences is climbing Kilimanjaro. The Legendary Mt. Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain in Africa. A hike to its top is considered by many as reaching the roof of Africa.
Given that Kilimanjaro hikes are popular, there are several tour operators organising trekking expeditions in Tanzania. Most hiking safaris start from Arusha in Northern Tanzania. You can easily combine your hiking safari with game viewing safaris in Serengeti, Tarangire and even Masai Mara National Park.
There are over 80 plus African safaris, to take you for adventure vacations within the Kilimanjaro Mountains.
Kilimanjaro Safari Packages
What are the popular routes to take on a hiking safari in the Kilimanjaro Mountains. There are two most popular Climbing Options To Consider.
Here are two routes to consider; the Marangu Route, the easiest and the most popular and the Machame Route, that many hikers have considered to be the most beautiful.
As noted, the Marangu is the most popular and easiest way to the summit. The trail has huts along its route with all the basic necessities. No technical skills are required for this five-day trek to capture its peak. The trek can also be taken in 6 days/5 nights to add acclimatization with an extra day.
The Machame Route is probably the most beautiful route up Kilimanjaro. Where accommodation on the Marangu route is in huts, the Machame route offers strictly tents only. This makes Machame (also referred to as the “Whiskey route“) better suited to the slightly more adventurous hiker.
The reward for taking the Machame Route? Scenic splendor not seen on the Marangu route, especially the late afternoon sunsets. The Machame route is normally completed in a minimum of 6 days. There is an added benefit to this. You have more time to acclimatize.
