6-day Kilimanjaro ascent via Rongai route

Congema's team of local guides and porters will guide you through the Rongai route on this 6-day Mount Kilimanjaro demanding ascent.

Not specified

6 Days

Jan, Feb, Mar, Sep, Oct




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.

Mountain Leader

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.

What people are saying about Constantine



Nous sommes parti faire l'ascension du Kilimandjaro du 30 aout au 5 septembre 2017 avec le support d'Explore-Share qui nous a déjà accompagné il y a 2 ans pour l'ascension à ski de l'Elbrouz. Cette aventure sur le plan physique, sur la découverte de nouveaux paysages montagneux totalement différents des Alpes, des montagnes Européennes auxquels nous sommes un peu habitués (je précise que nous sommes 2 amis de longues dates, Alain : guide de haute montagne et moniteur de ski, et moi Sébastien : pilote de ligne et moniteur de ski), fut fabuleuse, et exceptionnelle sur le plan humain. Nous étions accompagnés par toute une équipe de guides, cuisinier, et porteurs tout au long de ces 7 jours; et ces personnes furent le mets exquis de ce voyage, toujours souriants, encourageants, tellement gentils dans le plus noble et beau sens du terme. Je tiens à remercier tout particulièrement l'ensemble des porteurs, le guide Elly qui a mené cette belle ascension, l'agence Congema, et son responsable Constantine qui a géré l'administratif, et bien sûr Explore-Share avec Gauthier Poncelet qui nous a permis une nouvelle fois de vivre une semaine, et un voyage merveilleux gravés dans nos mémoires.
