Weather:

Kilimanjaro

The temperatures on Mount Kilimanjaro range from hot to bitter cold. Climbing Kilimanjaro is unique for many reasons, and one of these is that from origin to summit, climbers find themselves weaving through several distinct climate zones. It is said that the journey from the gate to the peak is like traveling from the equator to Antarctica in a matter of days!

We generally advise that the best time to climb Kilimanjaro is during the warmest and driest times of year, from December to mid-March and mid-June to the end of October

From July until the end of October, conditions are generally colder, but much drier than the previous months. Whilst there is a chance of getting rained on throughout the year, particularly as you trek through the rainforest and moorlands, typically precipitation is low and infrequent.

If you remain dry, you’ll be more comfortable and the trek will be a more enjoyable experience overall. Another advantage of climbing during these months is that you’ll have clear and sunny skies, and spectacular views.

At the summit, Uhuru Point, the night time temperatures can range between -7 to -29 degrees Celsius. Due to Mount Kilimanjaro’s great height, the mountain creates its own weather. It is extremely variable and impossible to predict. Therefore, regardless of when you climb, you should always be prepared for wet days and cold nights.


Currency:

Bring USD US Dollars and in small notes.
If you opt for the visa on arrival, have a $50 note ready. On departure, $25 for airport tax.

Most meals are included on Kilimanjaro hike but some on Zanzibar are not. Expect $50 per person for tips given to crew.

The following are the suggested minimum tips. Head Guide: $90, Assistant Guide: $60, Cook: $60 Porter $30.
– Tips to mountain crew (highly recommended)
Per potter per day is from 6 USD
Assistance guide / cook – per day is from 12 USD
Guides per day is from 20 USD

Generally, tips are given to the Head Guide, who will then distribute to the rest of the team. You can also approach any member of the team at the end of the climb and personally give it to them (chef, personal porter, sanitation manager, etc.). Previous trekkers have tipped $300 US per hiker on the Lemosho route, depending on number of people climbing.


Vaccination:

Travellers should be up to date with routine vaccination courses and boosters as recommended. These vaccinations include for example measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine and diphtheria-tetanus-polio vaccine.

Country specific diphtheria recommendations are not provided here. Diphtheria tetanus and polio are combined in a single vaccine in some countries. Therefore, when a tetanus booster is recommended for travellers, diphtheria vaccine is also given. Should there be an outbreak of diphtheria in a country, diphtheria vaccination guidance will be provided.

Those who may be at increased risk of an infectious disease due to their work, lifestyle choice, or certain underlying health problems should be up to date with additional recommended vaccines.

The vaccines which are recommended for most travellers visiting this country:
Hepatitis A
Tetanus
Typhoid

The vaccines which are recommended for some travellers visiting this country:
Cholera
Rabies
Hepatitis B
Tuberculosis (TB)
Meningococcal Disease
Yellow Fever
Certificate requirements

Please read the information below carefully, as certificate requirements may be relevant to certain travellers only. For travellers’ further details, if required, should be sought from their healthcare professional. ​

  • There is a low potential for exposure to yellow fever throughout Tanzania.
  • Under International Health Regulations, a certificate of yellow fever vaccination is required from travellers over 1 year of age arriving from countries with risk of yellow fever transmission, and for travellers having transited for more than 12 hours through an airport of a country with risk of yellow fever transmission.
  • According to World Health Organization (WHO), from 11 July 2016 (for all countries), the yellow fever certificate will be valid for the duration of the life of the person vaccinated. As a consequence, a valid certificate, presented by arriving travellers, cannot be rejected on the grounds that more than ten years have passed since the date vaccination became effective as stated on the certificate; and that boosters or revaccination cannot be required.

 

Malaria
Travellers should follow an ABCD guide to preventing malaria:
Awareness of the risk – Risk depends on the specific location, season of travel, length of stay, activities and type of accommodation.
Bite prevention – Travellers should take mosquito bite avoidance measures.
Chemoprophylaxis – Travellers should take antimalarials (malaria prevention tablets) if appropriate for the area (see below). No antimalarials are 100% effective but taking them in combination with mosquito bite avoidance measures will give substantial protection against malaria.
Diagnosis – Travellers who develop a fever of 38°C [100°F] or higher more than one week after being in a malaria risk area, or who develop any symptoms suggestive of malaria within a year of return should seek immediate medical care. Emergency standby treatment may be considered for those going to remote areas with limited access to medical attention.

  • There is a high risk of malaria in all areas of Tanzania below 1,800m (including Zanzibar): atovaquone/proguanil OR doxycycline OR mefloquine recommended.
  • There is no risk of malaria above 1,800m: bite avoidance recommended

Altitude illness in Tanzania
There is a point of elevation in this country higher than 2,500 metres. An example place of interest: Mt Kilimanjaro 5,895m.

Prevention
Travellers should spend a few days at an altitude below 3,000m. Where possible travellers should avoid travel from altitudes less than 1,200m to altitudes greater than 3,500m in a single day. Ascent above 3,000m should be gradual. Travellers should avoid increasing sleeping elevation by more than 500m per day and ensure a rest day (at the same altitude) every three or four days. Acetazolamide can be used to assist with acclimatization, but should not replace gradual ascent. Travellers who develop symptoms of AMS (headache, fatigue, loss of appetite, nausea and sleep disturbance) should avoid further ascent. In the absence of improvement or with progression of symptoms the first response should be to descend.

Trip Highlights:

Africa’s highest mountain, Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, lies just three degrees south of the equator and is permanently snow-capped.

lt offers one of the best opportunities in the world to climb a peak at high altitude without the need for technical climbing ability.

The trek takes you through well-defined altitudinal vegetation zones, from semi-arid scrub to dense cloud forest.

The view of Kibo from across the plateau is amazing.

A variety of walks are available on Lent Hills making this an excellent acclimatization opportunity. Shira is one of the highest plateaus on earth.

One day (day 5) for acclimatization and will help your body prepare for summit day.

Full Moon view Summit on day 7!

Reaching the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro is a lifetime accomplishment!
