Tour overview

The Rongai Route Kilimanjaro climb (6 Days | 5 nights )

Rongai (Loitokitoki) – from (5 -6 days) by using this route you can approach Kibo (summit) from the northern zone, near the Kenyan border. Probably the only route in which you see wildlife in the first days is possible. This is a flat condition route which is not ideal for acclimatization.


price $ 1,400.00

Day 1


Rongai route kilimanjaro climbing – Drive from Arusha to Marangu Gate for the necessary registration formalities and then transfer by Land Rover to Rongai, which should take about 1.5 hours. The climb starts at the village of Nale Moru (1,950 m.) through fields of maize and potatoes before entering the pine forest. The climb is consistently and gently through attractive forest that shelters a variety of wildlife. Reaching the first Campsite, at the edge of the moorland zone (2,600 m.), gives you extensive views over the Kenyan plains. (7km, 3-4 hrs Trekking)

Day 2


After breakfast starts with a steady walk ascent up to the ‘Second Cave’ (3,450 m). Start seeing Kibo Peak and the Eastern ice fields on the crater rim. Leave the main trail and strike out across the moorland on a smaller path towards the jagged peaks of Mawenzi. The campsite is in a sheltered valley near Kikelewa Caves (3.600 m) (15km, 5-7 hrs of trekking)

Day 3


Trailing starts with a short but steep climb up grassy slopes, which are rewarded with superb circular views and a tangible sense of wilderness, before reaching Mawenzi Tarn (4,330 m), for camping. Spend the rest of the day resting or exploring the surrounding area as an aid to acclimatization (10km, 5-7 hrs. Of trekking)

Day 4


Early morning proceeds with trekking crossing the saddle between Mawenzi and Kibo to reach School Campsite at the foot of the Kibo crater wall. (8km, 6-7 hrs of trekking). Spend remainder of the day resting and preparation for the final ascent

Day 5


The last day will be a really early beginning for the summit, usually, 01:00 am, trailing through loose volcanic scree to reach the crater rim at Gillman’s Point, take a rest for a short while before continuing to the Uhuru Peak (which might take 3 hours) After relaxing, watching the sunrise and taking memorable pictures, start descending to the Horombo Hut and spend overnight there.

Day 6


After breakfast descend to Marangu Gate, meet the driver and return to your hotel in Arusha
