About
The Rongai Route is one of the easiest routes and the success rate is very high. The route starts on the north side of the mountain just south of the Kenyan border and is one of the least traveled routes. The descent is down the Marangu Route on the south side of the mountain, so climbers see the mountain from many viewpoints. The drive to the trailhead takes about 3 hours from Moshi through many villages and coffee plantations, including a stop to register climbing permits at Marangu. The Rongai Route can also be accessed from Amboseli National Park in Kenya. Allow 2 hours including the border crossing. We will need copies of passports ahead of time.

Back home and caught again in daily business our time in Tanzania with trekking on Kilimanjaro and Safari afterwards is still unbelievable vivid in my memories with a lot of positive emotions.
For me successfully climbing Kilimanjaro on the Rongai Route (7 days) with the help of an outstanding team from Monkey Adventures is a once in a lifetime experience which I would never ever like to miss. Starting as a family group of 4 adult people (parents & kids) the family grew rapidly to 20 people 😊! Yes, we really had the feeling to be one family together with our guides, assistants and porters for a certain period of time with one goal, to bring the unexperienced 4 of us to the summit. I would like to thank our guides Rogers & Tino, cook Alfred with Hassan and the whole team for an unforgettable adventure! Without you, your hints, your fabulous food, your positive spirit, helpfulness and cheerfulness we wouldn’t have been successful. You are simply the best and from the bottom of my heart highly recommended. Stay safe - Hakuna Matata!
Afterwards we went for a 6 days Safari to Lake Manyara, Tarangire, Serengeti and Ngorongoro National Park. With our excellent and very experienced guide Kimondo from Monkey Adventures we managed to see all the Big Five! It was amazing how Kimondo spotted animals far away, and he was always eager to show us as much as possible and as long as possible. Besides he has a lot of knowledge regarding fauna and flora and also the history of the area. A big “Asante Sana” to Kimondo for his efforts, support and friendliness!
Last but not least I would like to mention, that communication with Monkey Adventure was always excellent. Due to the pandemic situation we had to postpone our trip for more than a year and communication was never broken, and I didn’t have the fear to lose my considerable down payment (which happened to customers from other companies which went bankrupt). Thank you, Monkey Adventures, you are a great and supportive company. We will certainly recommend you to all our friends.

It was an overall amazing experience that was made even better by the perfect organization from the team at monkey adventures. Positively suprised by the high standards that we experienced on the mountain trip, delicious food similar to a 5 star restaurant prepared by Alfred and very knowledgeable guides in Tino and Rojas. All of the porters were extremely nice as well and we all felt like a family while on Mt. Kilimanjaro. Would definetly do this again sometime with a different route but only with the same team.

My group of for 4 friends did the 7 day Rongai route with Monkey Adventures and I can't recommend them enough, specifically having Denise and Fazza as guides and their experienced team of porters (Juma, Haji, Frances, Paulo, Edward etc). While we were exploring trekking companies, we wanted to find a company that treated and paid the porters fairly and one that would provide us with a 5 star experience. Monkey adventures exceeded all our expectations.

Booking & reservation
I was working primarily with Lima to help book the trip and he is incredibly responsive and thorough in his communication. He always responded to all my emails within 12 hours. I really appreciated how Monkey Adventures assisted our group with booking our hotels and transportation before and after the trip. It made planning and paying seamless.

Service & hospitality
The service and hospitality on the trek with Denis and Fazza's team is 10/10. Every moment, I knew my safety, health, and comfort were their number priority. They would check our oxygen and blood levels every morning and ask how we were feeling and if we were taking any medications. Denis has a warm and nurturing attitude and encouraged us from day 1 to tell him everything with how we were feeling. Our mission was to get to the top, and he made sure we could accomplish our goal slowly and safely. It was the little things that mattered like having the porters take off our shoes after summiting, zipping up our tents at night, giving us warm water 3 times a day to wash up, helping us carry our packs on summit night so we had as much energy as to reach the top, holding our hand when we were struggling with the descent, the list goes on. The porters and guides didn't need to do any of this, but it made the entire trip so much more enjoyable. Our group honestly wouldn't have been able to make to to the Uhuru Peak without all the encouragement from the porters.

Food
I was absolutely wowed by every single meal. I kept asking the chef (Juma) to send us his recipes so I could make all the dishes when I got home. For lunch and dinner there's always a soup, a vegetable, a carb, a protein dish, and a fruit platter to end the meal. Most meals we had more food than we could consume. I also appreciated how attentive Juma was with what we like and didn't like. If he noticed we weren't finishing a dish he would ask if we preferred something else and switch it up for us the next day. One night we introduced our porters and Juma to an American treat, a banana drizzled with peanut butter. The next morning for breakfast Juma made us peanut butter, honey, and banana toasted sandwiches. He not only cooks, but he listens and cares.

Our group of 4 bonded with the team of 15 (12 porters, 1 cook, 2 guides) during the 7 days. We trekked, sang, and danced together, all activities that transcend any language barriers. Hanging out with the porters and sharing cultures and stories made this one of the most memorable trips. We not only experienced Kilimanjaro, but connections were made. My group of friends are talking about coming back in 5 years and doing another trail with the same team. Much thanks to Denis and Fazza in being part of a trip we will never forget.

We had an amazing trek with our guides, George and Isaya, and the team: the cook, our ‘personal assistant’ and the porters. They were all amazing and helped us klimbing Kilimanjaro successfully! They always were positieve, helpful, caring and made us laugh. Thanks to them, the good camping gear and the great food (Luguru is an amazing chef!) we reached the peak. 5 stars all the way!

Cheap (at least in 2019), but excellent.
Very good and professional guide Erik. Assistant Hans successfully led me to Uhuru as well, as guide had to stay with another couple climbers of our group.
I climbed in November. 7 day trip was quite easy, but do not overestimate! Prepare mental, and physically! Meals were good, tent was new, team excellent. For the most part temperature +7-10 C. One day was strong rain, but only in the evening and during night, anyway be ready to dry your clothes in a tent. Last ascent day is the most challenging for the climbers of all routes. Be prepare! It is hard above 5,000m, might need to adjust your pace, but definitely worth!
