Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro is a dream for many, but with so many routes to choose from, it can be overwhelming to pick the one that's best for you. If you're looking for a route that offers the perfect balance of beauty, challenge, and success, the Rongai Route may be just what you need.
The Rongai Route is considered as one of the best routes to climb Mount Kilimanjaro, due to its perfect balance of beauty, challenge, and success.
The route begins at the remote and less-traveled Rongai village near the Kenyan border, and it passes through a variety of landscapes, including rainforest, moorland, and alpine desert. Since the Rongai Route starts on the mountain's northern slopes, it offers climbers a unique and breathtaking view of the mountain from a different angle than other routes.
The Rongai Route is a good choice for climbers who prefer a more gradual and gentle ascent, allowing them to acclimatize to the higher altitude slowly. Most climbers use the Rongai Route on a six or seven-day itinerary, but Dahlia Africa can uniquely offer a shorter five-day climb for experienced hikers.

1st class service
We used local travel specialists and service was outstanding. We had good nutrition and a competent guide, which is all that is needed. We took a guided town tour of Moshi before our climb, which was a great cultural experience.... Read more
