The Rongai Route is the only route that approaches Kilimanjaro from the north, near the Kenyan border. Rongai’s ascent profile is very similar to that of Marangu. It is one of Kilimanjaro’s easier routes. The climb to the top is gradual and steady. However, unlike Marangu, this route has low crowds and passes through remote wilderness the only route where seeing wildlife in the first days is possible.

Day 0 : pickup from Kilimanjaro Airport
Arrival at Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO), where you will meet with representative of Bush thorns adventures, and transfer to the Kilimanjaro crane hotel in Moshi for an orientation on your trek. The hotel will provide all the essentials for a comfortable stay: nice rooms, hot water, polite staff, a swimming pool, and Internet access. In the evening you will meet with our guides who will be there to provide you a short briefing on your trek and also checking your trekking gears also to make sure you are ready to begin the climb.

Day 1 : Moshi to Rongai gate to Simba camp{Full Board}
After completing the necessary registration formalities at Marangu National Park gate, we transfer to Rongai. The climb begins from Nale Moru (1,950 m) on a small path that winds through fields of maize and potatoes before entering pine forest. The track then starts to climb consistently, but gently through attractive forest that shelters a variety of wildlife, including the beautiful Kilimanjaro Colobus monkey. These monkeys are black with a long ‘cape’ of white hair and a flowing white tail. The forest begins to thin out and the first camp, Rongai One, is at the edge of the moorland zone (2,600 m) with extensive views over the Kenyan plains.
[3-4 hours walking]

Day 2 :Simba camp to Second cave camp{Full Board}
The morning walk is a steady ascent up to the ‘Second Cave’ (3,450 m) with superb views of Kibo and the Eastern ice fields on the crater rim. After lunch, we leave the main trail and strike out across the
moorland on a smaller path towards the jagged peaks of Mawenzi. Kikelewa campsite is in a sheltered valley with giant senecios near Kikelewa Caves (3,600 m)
[6-7 hours walking]

Day 3 :Kikelelwa camp to mawenzi turn hut camp{Full Board}
A short but steep climb is rewarded by superb allround views and a tangible sense of wilderness. We leave vegetation behind shortly before reaching the next camp at Mawenzi Tarn (4,330 m), spectacularly situated in a cirque directly beneath the towering spires of Mawenzi. The afternoon will be free to rest or explore the surrounding area as an aid to acclimatisation.
[3-4 hours walking]

Day 4 :Mawenzi turn hut to Kibo camp{Full Board}
We cross the lunar desert of the ‘Saddle’ between Mawenzi and Kibo to reach Kibo campsite (4,700 m) at the bottom of the Kibo crater wall. The remainder of the day is spent resting in preparation for the final ascent before a very early night!
[5-6 hours walking]

Day 5 : Kibo Camp to Uhuru peak to horombo campsite{Full Board}
We will start the final, and by far the steepest and most demanding, part of the climb by torchlight around 1 a.m. We plod very slowly in the darkness on a switchback trail through loose volcanic scree to reach the crater rim at Gillman’s Point (5,685 m) We will rest there for a short time to enjoy the spectacular sunrise over Mawenzi. Those who are still feeling strong can make the three hour round trip to Uhuru Peak (5,896 m), passing close to the spectacular glaciers and ice cliffs that still occupy most of the summit area. The descent to Kibo (4,700 m) is surprisingly fast and, after some refreshment, we continue the descent to reach Horombo Camp (3,720 m).
[11-15 hours walking]

Day 6 : Horombo Camp to Marangu Gate to Moshi{HB}
After breakfast, finish the trek with a descent to Marangu Gate. Your last hike on Kilimanjaro is a beautiful one, passing through Kilimanjaro’s cloud forest. Watch your step during the descent, as the trail can be slippery. Our vehicles will be waiting at the lower station of Marangu Gate to take you back to Moshi.
At the Gate gate you sign your name and details in a register book. This is also where successful climbers receive their summit certificates. Those climbers who reached Gilmans Point are issued with green
certificates and those who reached Uhuru Peak (5895m), receive Golden certificates. You now drive back to Moshi for a long overdue hot shower, dinner descent bed and celebrations!!
[5-6 hours walking]
