Rongai Route: A Story


I stumbled upon a good story in one of BootsnAll’s blog about hiking the Rongai route of Mount Kilimanjaro. If you want to read a day-to-day account of this guys experience climbing Kilimanjaro, you might want to check it out. It’s pretty good. I like how his guide got pissed off because the tip was too little. It’s really important to set the expectation with the guides that tips are “earned” not just given. If the guide gives you any slack, tell the company he works for.
