7 DAYS KILIMANJARO TREKKING MARANGU ROUTE

ABOUT MARANGU ROUTE The Marangu route and this has led potential climbers to think that it is an easy route to the summit. The fact that it requires a minimum of 6 days to complete it does not mean that it is easier than any other route. The only reason that people say it is easier is because it is the only route up Kilimanjaro where you sleep in huts as opposed to tents. An optional acclimatization day at Horombo Huts is highly recommended.

DAY 1

You will be picked up at the Kilimanjaro International Airport and transferred to your arranged hotel in Arusha,and meet Lawrence and Raymond your guide who will brief you on your upcoming schedule for safari and trek and do an equipment check to make sure you have all the necessary mountain gear.

Meagan Bradham, United States

Expect in Africa Safari exceeded my expectations. Our driver was Raymond. Raymond was extremely knowledgeable, he had an answer for every question we had. He was able to use his knowledge of birds and animals to locate every animal we wanted to see. He was professional and kind. We will be returning with our children and using Raymond again. We also loved the accommodations. We felt safe and the tents were clean and spacious. If you are considering safari, this company is who you need to book with. Read more

The trip with Expect in Africa Safari was a spectacular "endless plain" of big game and beautiful wildlife. Our driver and guide was excellent. He was extremely knowledgeable, and made every effort to give us a trip of a lifetime!

We choose Expect In Africa Safari because it matched our needs. A small business who is ran perfectly. We had all the information we needed before to do the safari for 2 days. They helped to choose the best option for the national park. We choose Tarangire and Ngorogoro Crater. During the safari, the guide was great always taking time to explain us the wildlife and other facts about the park. He has a lot of experience. The accommodation they booked for us was beyond expectation. Overall the safari was amazing and we saw a lot of animals especially babies lions. I recommend them. Read more
