There is only one route that takes you over the North-Eastern side of the mountain, and that is the Rongai Route! Although the scenery on this route is not as spectacular as others, this lesser known track has much less traffic than the other routes, offering a more exclusive experience. This route takes you through untouched wilderness. From maize fields and rainforest to rugged rocks and snow capped peaks, you’ll truly feel like you’re exploring the wild on this route to the top of Kilimanjaro.

Route: This Route will take you first past Rongai Cave then through to Second Cave, Kikelewa Cave, Mawenzi Tarn Hut, Kibo Hut and then finally Uhuru Peak!

Accommodation: On the mountain you will be staying overnight at tented campsites. African Expedia can organize accommodation for you the night before and after as well as transport to and from your accommodation both days.
