Zara Tours leads treks up the unique Rongai Route known to be more scenic than the Marangu Route, easier than the Machame Route, and the success rate on the Rongai is very high. Unlike the Marangu Route where you sleep in huts, on the Rongai you sleep in tents (tents are included), and our porters will pitch your tent for you. Meals are served in a dinner tent or on a blanket outside.

The Kilimanjaro Rongai route starts on the north side of the mountain just south of the Kenyan border, and is one of the least traveled routes. The Rongai route joins the Marangu route before the summit climb, then you descend the Marangu Route on the mountain's southeast side.

Nothing short of an epic adventure
“It was an epic journey to the top of Kilimanjaro via Rongai route. The trek was not easy and the support of the wonderful crew led by Yesse Lema was the difference that took us to the summit. We could have failed miserably without their support. The trail goes through the different habitats and as we went higher we had awesome views of beautiful landscapes down below and we confirmed the words of Mike our travel consultant that Rongai has the best views. I had mild Altitude sickness and the crew was at hand with herbal remedies that had me better within a short while. It was just me and my girlfriend on the climb which made it very intimate. Thank you for great equipment, tasty meals, all the water, bathroom convenience and above all the duty and care of getting 2 armature climbers safely to the summit.”

Perfect Kilimanjaro and Safari Experience
“A group of friends and I decided to do Kilimanjaro in November. We booked the trip with Zara Tours who are one of the oldest and well established travel agencies in Tanzania. They not only gave us a wonderful and experienced crew but also top notch equipment for the trek. We also stayed at their hotel in Moshi Springlands Hotel which was perfect.We reached the summit on 28th November and then did a 3 day safari to Lake Manyara and Ngorongoro Crater. I highly recommend Zara Tours.”
