Join your expert guides on a challenging seven day climb up Mount Kilimanjaro from the eastern side of the National Park, to go off the beaten track with the Rongai Route. This less populated trek takes a relatively gradual ascent with a high chance of some fantastic wildlife sightings. Stop at camping points along the way as you spend your days ascending the iconic peak. Climb to the 5,681m Gilman’s Point, before the last stretch and an early morning to climb through the dark and enjoy sunrise from the Uhuru Point summit at 5,896m. From there look out over the Kibo crater, ash pits and glaciers and enjoy being on top of Africa’s highest peak – the ‘Roof of Africa’ – before taking the last day to descend.
