Tour Details

Situated on the northern side of Mount Kilimanjaro, the Fanta Route is renowned for its ease, often referred to as the “Fanta” route. This path winds through breathtaking landscapes, offering a minimum trek duration of six days, with options for seven to eight days. Unlike the Marangu route, the Fanta Route features camps along the way. The journey commences south of the Kenyan border, eventually merging with the Marangu route for the summit climb. After reaching the summit, the descent follows the Marangu route back to the Marangu Gate, where you’ll sign out and be driven back to your hotel.
