Kilimanjaro is one of Africa’s most magnificent sights, and at 5,894m 19,340ft it is her highest peak. It is the tallest freestanding volcano in the World and Kibo, which is the central crater, rests on its two sisters Mawenzi and Shira.
We will be ascending by the Rongai route, which approaches Kilimanjaro from the north and retains a sense of untouched wilderness lost on the crowded Marangu and Machame trails. The most straight forward of all the walking routes up Kilimanjaro, it has a relatively gentle gradient and short daily stages as it winds its way from the starting point just south of the Kenya-Tanzania border. It passes through attractive farmland and delightful forest to several other climatic zones, adding considerably to the interest of the trek. There are magnificent views over the Amboseli Plains and genuine possibilities for wildlife viewing.
