This 6-day Kilimanjaro ascent via Rongai route is a demanding challenge to reach Africa’s highest peak!

The Rongai route is a unique way to climb Mount Kilimanjaro (5895 m) because is the only way to approach it from the north, close to the border with Kenya. Plus, it’s still not a very known route, so there is less traffic than other approaches. That’s why is the perfect route for those who want an alternative to the crowded Marangu route. Also, it’s a good choice if you’re coming during the raining season, because this side receives less precipitation.

This program will be a challenging one. Six is the minimum amount of days needed to complete this route.

The scenery will not be as varied as it is on the western routes, but we’ll be going through truly wild areas at the beginning of the trip. Then, further up, we’ll be joining the Marangu route for the last few days and we’ll descend this way, which is faster.

Rongai route is not a very difficult way. So it’s highly recommended for those with less backpacking experience.

So if you want to try a different ascent to this amazing mountain, please send me a request and I’ll make this 6-day Kilimanjaro ascent via Rongai route happen for you!

And if you want to try this through a different route, please check my program via Lemosho Route Marangu route and Machame Route.



We will sleep in tents that the porters will pitch for you.



About the guide

Please get in touch with me if you are interested by coming to Tanzania, for climbing Mount Kilimanjaro or any other exiting adventure you wish to experience !
Our company was established with the aim of promoting both local and global tourism. May I say that nowhere else will you feel really in Tanzania than at our organisation. Years of experience have taught us to prepare special programs that take you off the beaten tracks (eg. Rubondo National Park, Gombe National Park, Lake Eyasi, Ngorongoro Crater Highland, Lake Natron, Oldonyo Lengai mountains, Longido Mountains and Monduli Mountains).
This of course, is in addition to the already popular places of Tarangire, Lake Manyara, the Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater and Mount Kilimanjaro in the North, and Selous, Mikumi, Ruaha and Udzungwa in the South. Last but not least beach holidays on the islands of Zanzibar, Mafia and Pemba are also among our programs. Some National Parks extension trips in Kenya and Gorilla tracking Safaris in Uganda and Rwanda are coordinated as well.
We have something to satisfy anyone's budget, from single seats on a vehicle safari, to exclusive safaris, incentive tours, educational and cultural safaris, ecological tours, and face-to-face safaris. You have the option to choose our basic "Canvas Safaris" or let us arrange a stay at luxury 5-star hotels.
