    Top of Africa-Kili Climb: Rongai Route

    Ascend via the northern route and Mawenzi Tarn

    Journey to the top of Africa by the lightly-used Rongai route that starts just south of the Kenya-Tanzania border. Now open for climbing once again, the Rongai route is regarded by experienced guides to be both easier and more beautiful than the main Marangu trail. The Rongai route begins in attractive farmland and delightful forest, with the possibility of wildlife viewing, and passes through several different climate zones as it works its way towards the summit. An extra day is added to the standard five-day itinerary to ensure maximum acclimatization while offering the best possible chance of enjoying the magnificent scenery. This route retains a sense of unspoiled wilderness and offers a different perspective on Kilimanjaro by approaching it from the north.

    NOTE: Other route options are available; please contact our office for more information.

    "We still reminisce about our journey to the top of Kilimanjaro, the friends we met, the camaraderie among our porters and guides, and all the laughs we had along the way. There is something to be said about being out of one's comfort zone and everyday life... Kilimanjaro definitely speaks for itself. Kilimanjaro not only left me with unforgettable memories, it humbled me as well."
    ~Karen Johnson
