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.

Shane's review for another Enosa Expeditions tour

“Myself and four friends from Ireland successfully climbed Mt Kilimanjaro with Enosa Expeditions in July/August 2019.

The experience was excellent from the outset - communication with Noel was very regular in the build-up to our trip and we were picked up from the airport. We had a lost bag on our flight in so they accommodated us by pushing the start day back a day.

Our guides Anton, Eric and Fraterino were a great help throughout our 8-day climb, advising us each evening in the tent on what the following day would entail, and helping us with any headaches or issues that arose during the climb.

The porters were fantastic too, and the food we got each day really helped keep us nourished throughout the day. These guys know what they are doing and I would certainly recommend climbing Kili with them.

All five of us successfully reached the summit on a really tough summit night, and that was in no small part down to the help we got from the Enosa crew.

Thank you very much for all your help guys from the Irish group of 5!”

“Noel from Enosa arranged everything as planned, we finally ended up reaching the summit in 6 days instead of 7 through Machame route.
I highly recommend Enosaexpeditions.com, they got the best possible team. Big thanks to our guides Wilfred, Mahamod and Fratterino, we wouldnt have reached the summit without them. Also a big thanks to all porters, cook and our favorite waiter Bariki.
All services were provided as agreed, our tents were ready every day when reaching the camps, marvelous food and very good advise by the guides.
Remember, of you want to make it all the way up to Uhuru peak, just go Pole Pole and follow your Enosa guides.
Hakuna Matata!”
