7-Day Kilimanjaro Rongai Route Tour

The sole northern approach to Mount Kilimanjaro is via the Rongai Route. Six natural zones are crossed during the seven-day expedition. You will go through stunning but frigid polar zones, as well as dense and lush rainforests.

Entry Day

Your arrival at Kilimanjaro International Airport and clearing customs mark the beginning of the journey. Following that, you will be driven to Ngare Sero Mountain Lodge, where you will stay the night and be treated to a lovely dinner.


Acclimatization time will be spent in Arusha National Park, which is at the base of Mount Meru, Tanzania’s second-highest peak. The Ngare Sero Mountain Lodge will be where you spend the night.

1. Rongai Gate, Simba Camp, and Day One in Arusha National Park

A wonderful breakfast in your hotel kicks off the first day of the excursion. Following that, at 9 am, tour guides will meet you to begin the tour with a drive to Kilimanjaro National Park.

After entering the park, proceed to Rongai Gate, which is located at a height of 1950 meters. The formal journey begins at the village of Nale Moru and lasts for around 4-5 hours as it winds through the verdant rainforest. You will be provided with breakfast, lunch, and dinner at Kilimanjaro camping after completing the walk.

2. Second Cave Camp at Simba Camp

Our tour’s second day begins at 6:30 am with a delicious breakfast and coffee. After that, you’ll keep travelling until you reach Kibo, where you can see Kilimanjaro’s breathtaking Mawenzi and Kibo twin peaks. Your arrival to the second cave camp, where you will be greeted with hot washing water and sandwiches, marks the end of the day. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are all included in your stay at the campground, so you can spend the rest of the day unwinding and taking in the breathtaking scenery.

3. 2nd Camp to Kikelewa Camp on Day Three

The third day of the Kilimanjaro climb begins with a 4-mile hike from the second camp to the summit of Mawenezi. Soon after arriving at Kikelewa Camp, at an elevation of 3600 meters, you will be greeted by a stunning view of the magnificent Mount Kilimanjaro. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are all provided, and the remainder of the day can be spent relaxing at the camp.

4. Kikelewa Camp to Mawenzi Tarn Hut on Day Four

The short 4 km hike from Kikelewa Camp to Mawenzi Tarn Hut, which begins the following day, is typically finished in the morning. You will ascend 600 meters during the journey as you get closer to Mawenzi Tarn, which is situated beneath Mawenzi’s sharp jaws. You will have the opportunity to see the clear sky and the breathtaking vista of Kibo peak in the afternoon. As you rest and acclimatize at Mawenzi Tarn Hut, breakfast, lunch, and dinner are all included throughout your stay.

5. Mawenzi Tarn Hut to Kibo Hut on Day Five

The first part of the day involves an 8 kilometre hike that will take you 5 to 6 hours to complete to get to Kibo Hut. As you go to an altitude of 4.700 meters, you will be welcomed by scenes of unimaginable grandeur and have the opportunity to see the spectacular Kibo peak. The rest of the day will be spent relaxing before a briefing to get you ready for the last summit day. You will have the time to think back on your incredible journey up to this point while eating breakfast, lunch, and dinner at Kibo Hut.

6. DAY SIX: Horombo Hut, Kibo Hut, Gilman’s Point, and Uhuru Peak

After receiving hot tea and cookies to get you ready for the long travel ahead, you will leave for the hardest departure at midnight. You can see a lot of amazing sights throughout the first six hours of the climb, which lasts six hours.

One of these is William’s Point, which is located at 5.131 meters, and Hand Meyer Cave, which is higher even, at 5.292 meters, where you will stop for a moment. If you’re lucky, the sunrise will be visible as you approach Gilman’s Point at 5.681 meters. You will arrive at “the roof of Africa,” the 5.985-meter-tall Uhuru mountain, the highest mountain on the entire African continent, after 1-2 hours of climbing.

Congratulations on your recent summit arrival! Consider taking a moment to consider your journey thus far; you have accomplished something truly remarkable! You’re not done yet, though! After a little while, you will begin to descend because the altitudes are unsafe for you in order to reach Kibo Hut, where you will be welcomed with a delicious hot lunch and warm congratulations. You will then proceed in the direction of Horombo Hut.

7. Horombo Hut, Marangu Gate, and Arusha Park on Day Seven.

Warm breakfast is served as our team congratulates you on your outstanding accomplishment to start the day. Few people can claim to have scaled Kilimanjaro. The fall begins in the direction of Marangu Gate and Horombo Hut. Before travelling by van to Moshi, where you can partake in a lovely celebratory lunch, you can unwind and drink a delicious beer here. You will receive a certificate for your outstanding accomplishment here.


You have successfully ascended Mount Kilimanjaro, the tallest mountain in all of Africa, and your time in the continent regrettably comes to an end today. After that, our staff will take you to Kilimanjaro International Airport so you can fly out.
