Welcome to Carly’s Kilimanjaro Challenge!
The Rongai Route
Carly likes to think of herself as “the girl next door who never wants to have to turn down a meal just to stay in shape”. She is all about independence and finding a healthy and happy way to feel incredible in our own skin.
We trek through farmlands, forest and alpine moorlands as we approach the beautiful summit cone. This route allows an extra day for acclimatisation under the imposing spires of Mawenzi, before the arduous final ascent.
The final climb begins in darkness but our reward is an incomparable dawn vista over the sweeping East African plains. There is the option to wind down in Zanzibar and enjoy yoga sessions along the white sandbanks of Fumba Beach Lodge.
Take a look at our Kilimanjaro trips and take the challenge for yourself.
