Kilimanjaro Safari Trekking 

 Rongai Route 

 9 days / 8 nights 

 Kilimanjaro – Rongai  Route


This route will take you to reach the highest peak in Africa from the east side, the less traveled of Kilimanjaro. We begin the ascent by the slope of Rongai and we will descend by Marangu. In Rongai we will enjoy its climatic diversity and, of course, its breathtaking views. This route is smoother than the rest of the routes and has a high success rate. We will pass by the only lake in the mountain and we will camp next to it, we will also enjoy with a bit of luck the sighting of mammals and even some elephant that migrates from the plains of Amboseli.


If you like the wildest and least traveled routes Rongai is your route to Kilimanjaro. Combining nights in a tent and wooden shelters: DARE!
