8 Days – Rongai Route – Basic

Rongai Route – 8 Days

Two Nights In Arusha, Six Nights On The Mountain
Trip Introduction
An eight day trip to climb Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest peak, trekking on the comparatively new Rongai Route. Expect rainforest and moorland landscapes, with perhaps a sighting of some Colobus monkeys on the lower slopes and even the occasional elephant higher up. You will have a private vehicle to take you to and from the mountain. Accommodation on the mountain on this ‘Basic’ category trip will be in tented camps – a true adventure.

Trip Highlights

  • Reaching the summit! Experiencing that incomparable, ‘roof of the world’ feeling
  • Lower numbers of trekkers add to the feeling of being in the wilderness
  • Stunning views as you ascend.
  • Unspoilt rainforest
  • Dedicated guides, porters and cooks – a great team to help you on your way.
