The tents that you will use are mountain-style, double-walled, mosquito-netted, and waterproof material-floored. Although they are classified as three-person tents, they can easily accommodate two people. The portering team sets up and packs up the tents.
Within the tent, there is ample area for tall people to stretch out and for your gear. The huts on the Marangu Route are barely big enough for four bunks erected against the A-frame cubicles’ walls. Tall hikers may feel claustrophobic. The gear is strewn on the floor. The washrooms and toilets are communal and located outside the cottages.
