What is a Kilimanjaro climb like?

Celebrating Kilimanjaro summit success.

Its a tough hike that challenges your body and stamina. Your body will need to adjust to increasing altitude. You will be encouraged to ascend slowly (to use up the least amount of energy), drink plenty of fluids (to prevent dehydration) and to report if you feel unwell. On most routes the trail allows for hiking to higher elevations during  the day but sleeping at a lower elevations each night (good for acclimatization).

Be prepared for changeable weather and temperature during the trek. You will begin within the rain forest which can be dry and warm or wet and cool. As you gain altitude, expect dramatic temperature drops, especially at night, and Arctic like conditions on the summit.

We will send you a Kilimanjaro information pack to help you prepare, select your equipment and clothing and to explain in more detail what to expect when you climb Kilimanjaro.

Get fit before you climb Kilimanjaro.

Kilimanjaro climbing is strenuous on any route. You will be hiking for long periods at a slow pace while carrying a day pack (around 5 kg). The demands on the body increase as you gain altitude. It is therefore important to check with your medical practitioner before you consider the challenge of a Kilimanjaro climb.

A good level of fitness will help you to climb Kilimanjaro safely and also increase the enjoyment of the challenge. The best way to increase your level of fitness is to start training at least two months in advance. Eat well, sleep well and keep a positive attitude. Preparation will help your body to function more efficiently.
