The main and most popular way up. Besides the peaks and moorland, the park consists of montage forest with relics of old vegetation. Also, significant numbers of mammals, birds, and insects inhabit the area. We avoid the crowded Marangu route on Kilimanjaro, preferring to approach the mountain from the north by the lightly used Rongai route. Mammals include elephants, buffaloes, elands, duickers, foxes, leopards, baboons, black and white colobus monkeys, blue monkeys. The area is also frequented by a variety of colourful birds.
