Mount Kilimanjaro - Rongai Route



I am just wondering if there is anyone in this forum who will be joining me in climbing Mount Kilimanjaro - Rongai Route in October 2019. 

Hi There . Yes i will be there...hope you are looking forward to it.


Hi, me and 5 others are going as well and by the sounds of things joining up with your group. Do you all know each other?

Hi Charlie 

Hope all is well. I am on my own, so pleased to hear there will be a group. 

Its the first time I have done anything like this so if you are experienced any tips would be welcome! If you want to connect further my email is [email protected]




Hi Dan and Charlie, I am on my own as well and this is my first time doing something like this!! A little nervous and hope I can achieve and reach the summit!!

Hi Radhi

Yes the nerves are defo creeping in the closer it gets! 

Go on youtube and watch videos of people doing the rongai route and you'll see that the majority of people doing it don't look super fit. What mountains have you climbed in preperation?


Hi Charlie, 

Unfortunately, I have not had time to practice and climb other mountains. I am just walking about 10km a day, which includes inclining the treadmill to level 12. I have done Sinai Mountain in Egypt 5 years ago, but that was nothing compared to what Mount Kilimanjaro will be. 

I have been watching youtube videos, that’s what made me book this trip in the first place, as it looks doable, as the the pathway on the video does not look difficult. Plus the itinerary, looked reasonable, as some of the days walking is less than 10 km. 

Let’s see haha, as everything is gonna be new to me as I have never camped out in my life, so this is gonna be a good experience of no home comforts, plus no internet for a week. 

Any advice?


I'm no expert, Just enjoy yourself. You won't eve be thinking about internet.

ya, should be fun :-)
