What to expect
  • Day one: Marangu Gate to Mandara Hut - The Kilimanjaro mountain is Africa's highest mountain and the world's tallest free-standing mountain at 5895 meters above sea level. It has three major volcanic centres which are Shira (4160 m), snow-capped Kibo (5895 m), and Mawenzi. For the Marangu route you will be ascending to the top. Day two: Mandara to Horombo - Trek from Mandara Hut to Horombo Hut at an altitude of 3700 m. This should take you 3-4 hours. After about 15 minutes, you will leave the glades of the rain forest and follow an ascending path on the open moorlands to the Horombo encampment. You will get amazing views of Mawenzi and the summit of Kibo. Look out for giant senecio and lobelias. You may start to feel the effects of the altitude today. Day three: Horombo Hut (acclimatization day) 3700M - Today is considered optional since it starts and ends at Horombo Hut, however it is an important day for acclimatization that will increase your chances of reaching the summit. Today you can rest at the camp or have a day trek to Zebra Rocks (4200m) and Mawenzi Tarn Hut (4300m). You will be returning to Horombo Hut for overnight. Day four: Summit and Horombo - Very early in the morning (midnight to 2am), begin the climb to the summit on steep and heavy scree or snow up to Gilman's point located on the crater rim at 18640 ft/5861 m (4-5 hours). Continue to ascend to Uhuru Peak which is the highest point in Africa: 19340 ft / 5895 m (1-2 hours). You will find unbelievable views at every turn. Get your picture taken at the summit. From here, we now begin the descent, stopping for lunch and a rest at Kibo before continuing to Horombo encampment for dinner and overnight (3-4 hours).  Day five: Back to Moshi - After breakfast, a steady descent takes you down through moorland to Mandara Hut (2700m / 8858 ft). The first stopping place will be at the Marangu Route. Continue descending through lush forest on a good path to the National Park gate at Marangu (1830 m / 6004 ft). At lower elevations, it can be wet and muddy, gaiters and trekking poles will help. Shorts and t-shirts will probably be plenty to wear (keep rain gear and warmer clothing handy).

Мы ходили на Килиманджаро по маршруту Марангу за 5 дней в декабре 2019 с компанией Afrishare Trekking and Safaris. Если кратко, то могу смело рекомендовать. Нас было 2: я и моя супруга. Гидами были Алекс и Годфри. Кроме них в команде был повар, официант и 5 портеров - все отличные ребята, все отработали на ура. В принципе, нет вопросов ни к кому. Все выложились, как надо, на совесть.

Бронирование и согласование с Ибрагимом также прошло, как по маслу. С первого письма, и я это отмечу особо, он отвечал строго по существу, четко, на все поставленные вопросы, без расплывчатых формулировок. Для Африки это редкость. Мы обращались еще в несколько мест, в том числе напрямую к разрекламированному на одном известном русском форуме гиду. Вот его ответы сразу давали понять, что он даже письма читает сквозь пальцы, отвечает какими-то шаблонами невпопад. С Ибрагимом все было наоборот, мы поняли, что тут все будет четко, поэтому и предоплату внесли еще из России без сомнений, хотя считается, что в Африке лучше ничего не оплачивать вперед. Ибрагим прислал удобную ссылку на форму приема платежей для карт Visa/Mastercard. Да, платежная система взяла комиссию в 3,5%, но это все равно сильно удобнее, чем какие-то непонятные банковские переводы. 30% от суммы тура мне кажется вполне адекватная предоплата. Остаток заплатили наличностью за день до начала. Все прошло настолько четко, что не понадобилось ни одного телефонного звонка, буквально несколько писем по электронной почте и все.

За день до старта к нам в отель, название я написал Ибрагиму заранее, пришел гид Алекс и помощник Ибрагима Магембе. Они осмотрели наше снаряжение и в целом, дали добро.

На следующий день приехала машина с командой и мы стартанули. Все восхождение мы шли в удобном нам режиме, кормили хорошо и много, на убой. Гиды были всегда под рукой, готовые ответить или помочь, при этом не навязывались, не лезли насильно с разговорами, для нас это плюс. Вообще, было очень комфортно идти, все что нужно - всегда по графику, никуда не торопились, но и не скучали без дела, не тратили время зря.

На сам штурм вышли попозже остальных, в час ночи, Алекс и Годфри вообще какие-то роботы, поднимались с нами без своей воды, вообще не пили! Помогли нести наш рюкзачок с нашей водой и чаем, мы брали с собой из России 2 термоса - всем настоятельно рекомендую! И вверх, и вниз (вниз идти кстати не менее тяжело, моя супруга вооббще с вершина шла тяжелее, чем наверх) шли в нужном темпе, Алекс пел духоподъемные песни, и вообще шутил над всеми, кого мы обгоняли. Потом они с Годфри на вершине фотографировались больше нас, как будто они сами первым раз туда зашли ;)

Собственно, повторю итог, Afrishare Trekking and Safaris, не смотря на то, что предложили одну из самых низкий цен на восхождение (что тоже важно), организовали и провели все в лучшем виде. Да, наверное, можно при желании к чему-то придраться, возможно, кому-то нужно, чтобы их на руках несли, но у нас нет ни одного вопроса. Все было на высоком уровне.
