Kilimanjaro Climbing

Mount Kilimanjaro climbing is a guided trip or expedition that takes individuals or groups up Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa. These tours are typically organized by specialized tour operators who have experienced guides and staff to help climbers reach the summit safely. The tour will usually start with a briefing and equipment check in the town of Moshi or Arusha, located near the base of the mountain. From there, climbers will be transported to the trailhead and start their ascent up the mountain. The tour operator will provide all the necessary camping and climbing equipment, including tents, sleeping bags, cooking gear, and warm clothing. They will also provide food and water throughout the climb.

Kilimanjaro climbing tours can take between 5-10 days depending on the route chosen and the pace of the climbers. The most popular routes include Machame, Marangu, Lemosho, Rongai, and Northern Circuit. These routes offer different levels of difficulty and scenic beauty. During the climb, climbers will be accompanied by experienced guides and porters who will provide assistance and support along the way. The guides will also provide important information about the mountain, its flora and fauna, and the best ways to acclimatize to the high altitude. Reaching the summit of Kilimanjaro is an amazing achievement, and the views from the top are breathtaking. However, it is important to note that climbing Kilimanjaro is a challenging and physically demanding activity that requires a certain level of fitness and preparation. It is important to choose a reputable tour operator and follow their advice and guidance to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience.

Mawenzi (5,149 m), Shira (3,962 m) the oldest one of the three Kilimanjaro summits is already extinct and the youngest summits Kibo (5,895 m) are dormant volcano and could erupt again in the future.

June, July, and August are also the best time to climb but with close observation of weather, though they tend to be colder as this is ‘winter’ season in Tanzania. The rainy seasons here in Tanzania especially Kilimanjaro region (March through early June and November or December) are tougher times to climb Kilimanjaro, though it is still possible with appropriate preparation and professional guides.
