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.

“Just finished our 7-day Lemosho route hike and we all made it to Uhuru! That would not have been possible without the help of the Enosa team. From the moment I landed, I was greeted with smiling faces and assisted every step of the way till I left to go back home. The porters were absolutely wonderful and were so friendly, all smiles! We had the absolute best cook, every meal was absolutely delicious, some of the best food I’ve ever had! Our guides were Ricky and Danny, and I must say, I absolutely would not have summited if not for them. I got sick not once, but twice, and both of them worked together to get me feeling better, assisting me with my pack and checking to make sure I was alright, and were incredibly encouraging when I started to doubt my ability to make it to Uhuru peak. I thought I would feel strange having porters carrying my things and cooking for us, but the Enosa team feels like a family. Get to know your team! Some of the most fantastic people I’ve ever met. Absolutely would recommend climbing with Enosa, they’re wonderful people and I can’t thank them enough for an incredible experience I will never forget.”

“We had an amazing trek and safari with Enosa Expedition.
We did the 7 day trek through Machame route. Noel, the owner of the company was always there to answer our questions while planning our trip. During the trek the guys made us feel comfortable all the time, the food was more than plenty and very tasty. Every day upon arrival at each camp everything was set to make us feel like home. Special thanks to all the porters, our guides Anton, Fraterino and Preygod and the amazing cook Sheidi. We also did a two day safari at lake Manyara and Ngorongoro crater, our driver Shirima was an exceptional person, polite and kind always keen to help.
Everything was perfect, it was an unforgetable trip.
Thanks again Noel and everyone else.”

“Five months ago I was in Tanzania and I did Mount Kilimanjaro trekking as well as I did two days safari trip in Manyara National park and Serengeti National Park.
For Mount Kilimanjaro I used Lemosho route, am not aware about other route but the tour company which organised our tour suggested this route because they had a group which was going by that day. After Mount Kilimanjaro I did two days safari in Manyara and Serengeti. Enosa Expeditions is a company which organised my tour and they did everything for me including booking for hotel and accommodation was very nice, they had good tour guides. I would like to compliment them because they are so professionals.
I like to advice other guys not to be scared to do Mount Kilimanjaro trekking because is not difficult as other people think. The most important thing is to get good tour company”
