Rongai Route - 8 days 7 nights

Approaching Kilimanjaro from the north side (the only route starting on this side of the mountain) and close to the Kenyan border, Rongai offers views of Maasai land where wildlife including Buffalo, Elephant and Monkeys can be spotted, along with East Africa’s stunning birdlife. Although becoming an increasingly popular route, it is still the quietest option. Considered a moderately difficult route, it has excellent summit success rates. You will make a gentle ascent through several different climate zones and make your descent on the south side along the Marangu route, so you get the best of both sides of the mountain.
