is located in the Marangu
area in the northeast
region of Tanzania
Set on the main road just to the south of the village, this long-established hotel is colonial in style and has 38 bungalow rooms set within pleasant gardens. There is also a small pool.
We quite like Marangu Hotel and would potentially use it as a base for some of our Mount Kilimanjaro Rongai Route treks if it were possible.
For higher quality routes on the west of the mountain ... Mount Kilimanjaro Shira Route treks and Mount Kilimanjaro Lemosho Route treks ... we prefer to base trekkers at one of the higher quality lodges in Arusha
Many trekkers also spend time in the adjacent Tanzania North
region, including Serengeti safari
, Ngorongoro safari
, Tarangire safari
and Lake Manyara safari
Some visitors also combine with options further afield including Ruaha safari
and Selous safari
to the south of the country, Katavi safari
and Mahale Mountains chimpanzee safari
out west, Maasai Mara safari
over the border in Kenya and Virunga Mountains gorilla safari
over in Rwanda.
These mainland areas are also commonly combined with nights down on the Tanzania Coast
, especially on Zanzibar Island
, Pemba Island
, Mafia Island
or Fanjove Island
, usually in trips of 10 to 21 nights.
