Roof of Africa: Climb Mt Kilimanjaro | 9 Days

‘Every mountain top is within reach if you just keep climbing.’- Barry Finlay

Rongai Route Itinerary: 9 Day Itinerary (minimum 6 people and max 12 per group) 


Rongai is the only route to approach Kilimanjaro from the north and is also the most unfrequented route. The Rongai route starts from the drier north side of Kilimanjaro near the Kenya border. This route offers a variety of fabulous views that most climbers never get to see, and the possibility of observing wildlife- it’s the mountains best kept secret. This nine day itinerary gives excellent acclimatization and also offers you an unusual view of Mt Kilimanjaro.
