The climb begins at Nale Moru (6,400 feet) on a small trail that winds through fields of corn and potatoes before entering a pine forest. The Kilimanjaro hiking trail then begins to climb steadily but gently through an attractive forest that is home to a variety of wildlife including the Colobus monkey. These monkeys are black with a long cape of white hair and a flowing white tail. At the edge of the moor zone, the forest begins to thin out. We then enjoy sweeping views across the Kenyan Plains as we arrive at our first campground at Rongai first Camp (8,500ft).
