Guided Trekking Holidays to Mount Kilimanjaro from Badger Adventures
Starting out on the Northern side of Africa’s highest mountain, this adventure will take you to the roof of Africa. The Rongai Route is a quieter, less frequented trail and houses a more gradual gradient through plantations, rain forest, bush lands, then leaving the vegetation behind to offer a true wilderness experience.
Kilimanjaro Rongai Route
While soaking up the breath taking scenery and the possibility of viewing wildlife, especially the black and white colobus monkey, a slower ascent and relaxed pace offers good acclimatisation, preparing you to attempt and the likelihood of reaching the summit. Our experienced guides accompanied by the porter staff, quite often the heart and soul of your trip, will ensure this challenge will be an exhilarating, unforgettable and rewarding trip of a lifetime.
