The Rongai route is the only route that approaches Kilimanjaro from the north, close to the Kenyan border. Though gaining popularity amongst climbers, Rongai has low traffic. It is the preferred route for those looking for an alternative to the crowded Marangu route, for those who would like a more remote hike, and for those who are climbing during the rainy season (the north side receives less precipitation).

The minimum number of days required for this route is six days, and seven days are recommended.

Although the scenery is not as varied as the western routes, Rongai makes up for this by passing through true wilderness areas for days before joining the Marangu route at Kibo camp. This route descends down the Marangu route. Rongai is a moderately difficult route, and is highly recommended, especially for those with less backpacking experience.

“I will never regret to recommend this company to any one who wants to do Mount Kilimanjaro trekking or safari.
My wife and i did 7 Day Mount Kilimanjaro trekking through Machame route and 4 days lodge safari with Enosa.
Noel was very ease to communicate with before we book and after booking with Enosa.
We had a very good team of Guides,cook and porters during the hike. Much appreciations goes to Pasco and Regan who helped us alot!!
During safari we stayed in good lodges...and we had good guide..his name is 'Mwinyi'.

We highly recommend Enosa to everyone!!”

“We saw sights I will never forget. Our guide made a great effort to allow us to see rare events. We saw every animal you could ever expect to see in Africa. Lions, leopards, elephants, rhinos, cheetahs with cubs, cheetahs eating a kill. All of these were at close range. Our guide Rashid had incredible knowledge of all of the animal and plant life we encountered. As a bonus Rashid gave us an amazing history lesson about Tanzania. Our meals were excellent and varied. Just an incredible trip.”

“I went on a Kilimanjaro hike (7 day Lemosho) with my sister. The nature is amazing - especially the first two days. The route was also very good for aclimization - we didn't encounter any serious altitude sickness symptoms before summit-night. The trail is in great condition and is maintained very well. The mountain itself is majestic and abolutely huge! The campsites were clean and well organized.
If you enjoy the green rainforrest and aren't in a hurry to reach the summit, the Lemosho route is definately reccomendable.”
