Marangu route

This is the oldest but best root of trekking Mount Kilimanjaro. Trekking Kilimanjaro marangu route program start from 5 day to six days. Bayango tours enable you to fulfill your long term dream of climbing the highest mountain in Africa via Marangu route.

Machame route

Climbing  Kilimanjaro via Machame route can be done in (7 Days/6 Nights) and is our most successful climbing route  from southern part on Mountain Kilimanjaro at cheap price. The success rate is high to reach the summit of Kilimanjaro mountain (Uhuru peak). Bayango Tours provide tour guides with experience in climbing via the  machame route. Accommodation on Climbing  Kilimanjaro Machame route is in quality tents. Bayango Tours has disciplined and experienced tour porters who carry luggage on your behalf. The following gears are highly recommended in your climb; Sleeping bag, warm clothes and walking poles. This is among the secrets of successful climbers of Mountain Kilimanjaro in East Africa. The key to the success of the Machame route is its topography, allowing hikers to climb high and sleep low, helping towards better acclimatisation. There are some challenges on this route including; Initially climbers will need to pass an area just before the Shira ridge and hike the Barranco Wall, both of which are physically demanding and also present a potential problem for hikers with a fear of heights. The another obstacle relates to the route’s high success rate, compounded by the fact that other routes join the Machame route from day 3 onwards – higher numbers of hikers can be therefore be encountered on this route.
The route utilises the Mweka route as a descend route.

Umbwe Route

This is the steepest route up or down Kilimanjaro, thus those few people who use this route do use this route to descend rather than ascending. The Umbwe route is usually recommended for descent only. Additional days can be added to our program to discover or lighten up along the route or camp in the Karanga valley. Warm clothes, sleeping bag, walking poles and medical insurance cover are highly recommended for the 6 days itinerary via Umbwe.

Shira route

The route approaches Kilimanjaro through forest and moorland from the west, crossing the caldera of Shira volcano and explores the rock formations of the plateau, before traversing beneath the southern icefields of Kibo. We make our final ascent by the Barafu route.

The Lemosho Route

This is a very beautiful and unspoilt route and sightings of wild game in the forest section is possible. The Lemosho route is one of the quieter routes up Kilimanjaro, this advantage however disappears when the route combines with the Machame route on the 3rd day of the hike. For those seeking a quiet route away from the crowds, the route is a superior option to the Rongai route. Unlike Rongai the Lemosho route has the same excellent pro-acclimatization features of the Machame route, which it joins just before reaching Lava Tower. This route is not recommend during the rainy season as the start point of the Lemosho Route is particularly inaccessible during the wet season. Climbers should be prepared to walk the final 2-5 kilometers of the road following heavy rains. The journey time to reach the start point is quite long and joined to the possibility of not reaching the end of the road by vehicle head torches may well be needed to reach Forest Camp on the first day. The route descents along the Mweka Route, a descent-only route.

Rongai route

This is the easiest route that comes up to Kilimanjaro Mountain from the northern side near by the Kenyan boundary. It is the number one route for those looking for an alternative to the busy Marangu route. It is one of the easiest route up to Kilimanjaro summit and it join Marangu route at Kibo hut. The minimum number of days required for this route is six days, and seven days are recommended. Wildlife can be seen on the lower slopes such as buffaloes, Elephant, Baboons and monkeys with different species of birds.
