“Climb before your safari” - Gastrogourmet

Climbing Kilimanjaro: Rongai Route

Views: 686 Visited: Jan 2013 Reviewed: Feb 19, 2014

A few of us were lucky enough to have the opportunity to climb Kilimanjaro in conjunction with an African safari. Due to our schedules, we had to do the climb after our safari, which I thought would be the wiser option, as we'd have time to get over jetlag. However, safaris are tiring events unto themselves and I was pretty tired at the end. We ended up needing an extra day to summit, but it was worth it as we made it.
The route was pretty crowded, though, and I'm not sure I'd do it again. Our porters were amazing and I'm so grateful to them.
