Tanzania is home to Africa’s highest mountain, Mount Kilimanjaro. Climbing Kilimanjaro is tough but accessible challenge and of course a wonderful achievement. It is celebrated as one of the world’s greatest natural wonders: a snow covered mountain on the equator, an ocean of green forest surrounded by dry savannah. Climbing Kilimanjaro is like walking from the equator to the North Pole in a week, providing dramatic changes in vegetation and animal life day by day.
We offer four routes up Kilimanjaro; Machame, Lemosho, Marangu and Rongai. Choosing which route to take all depends on your mountain experience, what you’d like to experience along the way, acclimatisation considerations and price.
We work closely with the Mount Kilimanjaro Porters society to promote the welfare and rights of porters climbing Mount Kilimanjaro and to ensure fair payment and work conditions. At Venture East Africa we aim to raise public awareness regarding the proper treatment of porters on Kilimanjaro by ensure fair and ethical treatment of their porters, by providing/giving climbing gear free of charge, and offering educational classes to empower and motivate porters and mountain crew.
Our lead Mountaineer, Ramadani has over a decade of experience, leading hundreds of successful climbs up the mountain. Before you arrival in Tanzania, we will schedule an introductory Zoom call Ramadani so you know exactly what to expect on your climb to the roof of Africa.
Rongai route ascends Mount Kilimanjaro from the north-eastern side of the mountain, along the border between Tanzania and Kenya. The rongai route retains a sense of unspoiled wilderness.
The Rongai route is the only route that approaches Kilimanjaro from the north. Rongai route is truly one of the more remote and wild trails on the entire mountain. Despite that however, this route offers trekkers plenty of advantages, making it a very appealing option for those looking for a unique experience on Africa’s tallest peak.
Due to its remote nature, the Rongai Route is among the least visited of all of the trails on Mount Kilimanjaro. Those who choose this path will experience peace and quiet for much of the trek, encountering few other climbers prior to reaching the Kibo Camp, at which point the trail merges with the Marangu Route for the final push to the summit.
Before that happens however, travelers will often have the path completely to themselves for hours or even days at a time, making this a good choice for those looking for solitude in a unique wilderness setting.
