The Rongai Route is the only route on Kilimanjaro that starts in the north near the border to Kenya, the furthest away from an airport of all Kilimanjaro National Park gates. This makes it much less visited than other routes, providing for a true wilderness experience during your summit approach.

The Rongai Route descends along the Marangu Route in the south east, providing for a cross-over experience with views of the north, east and south of Mount Kilimanjaro and its surroundings.

While the Rongai Route can be completed through a short and direct approach of the summit in only 5 days, or sometimes extended over 6 days, we recommend the longer 7-day Rongai Route Itinerary with a detour to Mawenzi in the east of Kibo. This allows more time to acclimatize to the thin air and improves your summit success chance.

100% Verified Sustainable Travel Experiences

We only promote companies and offers with a proven commitment to sustainability in their own operations (not just common CSR and donations), as independently certified by credible third party monitoring and certification organizations in the field of responsible travel. Learn more about our sustainability criteria here.

Best Independent Advice

We are 100% neutral and independent. Different to typical agencies, we work with all verified responsible tour operators. Different to other platforms, we do not accept listing or promotion fees. This means that we are the only agency or platform who can give you best independent advice and help you find & customize the best value-for-money offer for your unique requirements.

Fully Customizable Trips & Personal Advice

All our offers are fully customizable. Working with many locally leading tourism companies, we are not limited to one partner per destination but can offer you any itinerary variation or combination, accommodation, equipment rentals, and other services or tour inclusions that are available in each market. Even though we are building a platform with the aim to make these customization options easily available to you directly online, we will make every effort to earn your trust through our outstanding personal advice and service.

Curated 5-Star Offers

We go to great depths to compare tour operators, accommodations and packages for the destinations that we offer. Based on objective price-value comparisons, we aim to pre-select the best offers for each budget category (from no-frills to VIP) for you. All our partners are furthermore top-rated by travellers on leading review platforms such as TripAdvisor.

Best Local Prices

Tour operators only pay us a small fee out of their own operational budget when you book via Fair Voyage, to compensate us for our marketing, customer support, payment and other administrative services – all of which they would otherwise have to take care of in-house at much higher cost. This means that we can guarantee you best prices, and at least the same price as local companies would offer you directly.

When comparing prices, please note that many platforms show outdated or incorrect prices that may not be available as advertised. However, should you indeed be offered the same tour cheaper elsewhere, please let us know and we’ll match the price.

Safely Insured Payments

We are insured by the Swiss Travel Security guarantee scheme for traveller deposits. This means that when you book and pay for your Tour with us, your funds are protected against bankruptcy and no-shows. In the unfortunate event that your Tour Operator would not deliver your Tour to you, you receive your full payments back & more – hassle-free. Please be careful if you consider booking directly with a local company as no such insurance scheme exists yet in many developing countries.
