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 view points. The drive to the trail head 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 border crossing. We will need copies of passports ahead of time.

This is an amazing company! We did the Kilimanjaro climb (through the Rongai route) and then a 5-day safari with them. From the moment we arrived at the airport, everything was organized flawlessly.
- The Kilimanjaro team was great ; our guide Patrick helped us reach the top, and was very reassuring. The 15 porters were amazing, and the cook made us delicious and copious meals. The camps were perfectly set up.
- The safari was breathtaking ; our guide Elly is a real gem, he is extremely passionate about wildlife, and has a lot of training and experience. He took us to the best places of the national parks and taught us about animals ; he is also super nice!
About Covid : there is NO COVID in Tanzania! You should definitely go for a visit, it is very safe.
Tanzania joy tours is really a great choice!

It was a family trip and we could not have had a better time. Proir to the trip we had very good communitations with the operator. We recieved precise instructions and were able to select items we decided to rent. Now I wish we would rented more items - rental shop had excellent selection. Our team was very professional with great knowledge of area and specifics of climbing as well as very good English. We also had a very skillful cook - we struggled not to eat too much - all meals were excellent.

Final climb to Uhuru thru Gilliam's point was tough and I attribute our success to our lead guide Ringo and assistant guide Modi.

Thank you to the team and Tanzania Joy Tours!
