Tanzania Hiking Trekking
Tanzania is home to epic wildlife, endless beaches, friendly hospitality, and some of Africa’s most diverse cultures. And at the centre of it all? Famous Mount Kilimanjaro, that iconic mountain that so many people come to see. If you ask us what the best way to see Tazania is, we’d have to go with a Tanzania hiking trekking tour. Read on to find out why.
It’s safe to say that if you’re coming to Tazania for a trekking trip, you’re most likely coming to hike Kilimanjaro. The most popular route on Mount Kilimanjaro is the Machame Route, known as the “Whiskey” route. The days on Machame are longer than most, and the walks are steeper. It’s considered ideal for more adventurous folks with some hiking and backpacking experience. Marangu (the “Coca Cola” route) is the second most popular route, and is a classic trek. It’s the oldest and most established route, preferred by many because it’s considered the easiest path on the mountain. This route also offers sleeping huts in dorm style accommodations.
On the Marangu hike, you can complete the route in five days. However, it’s best to give yourself a few extra days to acclimatize.

Marangu is favoured only during the rainy season, when hut accommodations are preferred to wet ground.Read More ...
