6 Days Tanzania Safari to Serengeti & Ngorongoro

Overview

We offers Rongai route as a 7 days Kilimanjaro group climb or 7 days private climb. The Rongai route is the only route that approaches Kilimanjaro from the north, close to the Kenyan border. Though gaining popularity amongst climbers, this route still experiences low crowds. Rongai has a more gradual slope than the mountain’s other routes. Rongai is a moderately difficult route, and is highly recommended, especially for those with less backpacking experience.
