FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Climbing Kilimanjaro is a major undertaking and if it seems too cheap, then you can be sure compromises are being made in terms of your safety, comfort, equipment and staff salaries. Conversely, overseas travel agents often inflate their prices. We believe in putting your safety and comfort as our top priority, and proper ethical treatment of our staff. Read more about the real cost of climbing Kilimanjaro

Kilimanjaro has hundreds of tour operators. It’s very stressful knowing which operator to choose and who to trust with your life. You want to be sure that the tour operator staffs are certified Wilderness First Responders (WFR), who practice high safety standards and treats porters well. Guides that receive annual training in emergency first aid and can prevent, recognize and treat altitude-related illnesses. Safety is our number one priority. Read more about us

Mountain weather can be unpredictable, and the best time to climb Kilimanjaro is during the dry seasons: December to early March and June to October. We don’t climb during the height of the rainy season, for safety reasons. Read more about the best time to climb Kilimanjaro.

Our shortest climb is 6 days (Marangu route) and our longest is 9 days (Northern Circuits). The longer the route, the better for acclimatization. All of our routes build in acclimatization days, as the main reason climbers fail to reach the summit is due to insufficient adaptation to the altitude. For more information see factors affecting how long it takes to climb Kilimanjaro

 Meals are included as mentioned in the itinerary. For breakfast there will be a choice of fruit, scrambled eggs, porridge, toast, jam, hot chocolate, coffee or tea. Lunch will be provided in form of a lunch box containing sandwiches, boiled eggs, chicken etc. For dinner you will enjoy soup and bread followed by meat or poultry along with starch (i.e. chips, mashed potatoes, pasta or rice) as well as vegetables. While breakfast and dinner are served in a mess tent equipped with a table and chairs, lunch is enjoyed en-route. Please let us know if you have any special dietary requirements or food allergies and we will do our out most to cater for them (only possible with advanced notification). Food on Kilimanjaro

We take care of all the camping gear, food, and cooking equipment. You’ll bring your own clothing and essentials, up to 15kg. Your main duffel bag will be carried by our team and you’ll carry a daypack with what you need for the day’s hike. We take you through everything you need to bring (and what you can leave at home) on our Packing for Kilimanjaro page (along with a handy printable checklist).

Currently there are no immunization shots required in order to gain entry to the East African countries of Tanzania, Kenya or Uganda unless prior to your arrival you travel through countries that are infected with yellow fever, cholera or other diseases. However for accurate and the most up-to-date information, please visit the embassy web site for the countries you plan to visit.

For the camp staff, the day begins well before sun-up. The team prepares hot water for your washbasin, tea, and other hot beverages and breakfast. Your day will start bright and early, with a friendly wake-up call as the sun peeks over the horizon. A team member will bring you a basin of warm water to wash your face and brush your teeth, and a hot beverage, to warm you up before breakfast.

When you arrive at the base Camp, you’ll need to get as much rest as possible. Prepare your day pack as soon as you arrive, as you’ll be woken at around 11 pm to start your Kilimanjaro summit attempt.
