Program

According to annual research and report journals, the average summit successful rate across all climbers using the Marangu route is 65%.

You can only expect acclimatization at Kibo and Horombo camp where there is low oxygen as altitude increases. This is a unique safari for the venturesome. The hike via Marangu route can be done in six days and the points on the trail are at Marangu Gate which is your starting point, Mandara Hut, Horombo Hut, and Kibo Hut.

Location

Vegatation

Rain forest 6000 to 9200ft (800 to 1800m)

The rain forest represents the most abundant opportunities for viewing unique types of African flora and fauna. Various se, fig trees, olive tree, palm dripping with hanging mosses, species of orchids, sycamore are found here. Blue colobus monkey and different species of birds’ lives here. Climbers using Rongai, Shira and Lemosho route may be lucky to spot elephants, buffalo, antelope and occasionally hyenas.

Moorland Zone 9200 to 13200ft (2800 to 4000m)

As we move higher, the humidity and dense forest surrounding begin to give way to drier air and cooler temperatures. The flora thins into smaller shrubs like heather, and the presence of fauna becomes increasingly scarce. The most common flora is groundsels and Giant Lobelias. The most common bird seen is easily recognizable black and white crows which forage around camp.

Alpine Desert zone 13200 to 16500ft (4000 to 5000m)

The alpine desert receives little rainfall and correspondingly light vegetation exists here. The temperature can reach over 34 degree Celsius during a day. The thin air and proximity to the equator results in very high levels of solar radiation. This zone is in the very high altitude region of mountain medicine. For ideal acclimatization, climbers should spend a few days here, we always insist our guides to make sure that they climb high and sleep low to reduce the ill effects of altitude.

Arctic zone16500+ft (5000m+)

The final region of the climb is the arctic zone. Finding a region like this in Africa’s equatorial belt is like finding a swath of rainforest in the middle of an Arctic glacier. Characterized by ice and rock, there is virtually no plant or animal life at this altitude. Glacial silt covers the slopes that were once concealed by the now receding glaciers visible from Kilimanjaro crater rim. Nights are extremely cold and windy.
