The Marangu route is the only route with hut accommodation. This includes 60 bunk beds each at the Mandara and Kibo Huts and 120 bunk beds at Horombo Hut.
The Marangu Huts offer dormitory-style accommodation of between 4 – 20 bunk beds per room. It is not possible to rent a private room, and the allocation of beds is on a first-come-first-served basis. Therefore, expect to be sharing your hut with strangers.
However, it is worth noting that the huts do not come with mattresses and pillows – tour operators provide that. You’ll need to bring your own sleeping bags.
The first hut you will stay in will be the Mandara A-frame Huts, which include solar lighting, flush toilets and piped water.
