Our private tour group will be operated by Exodus Travel Company. Together, The Fine & Country Foundation and Exodus will organise a flight inclusive package for the 10-day expedition. 

Ascend to 5,895 m (19,340 ft) and see the incredible views from the world’s largest freestanding mountain. The Rongai route is much less crowded than Marangu and Machame routes and allows an extra day for acclimatisation.
