Embarking on a trekking adventure up Mount Kilimanjaro can be an exhilarating and life-changing experience. However, it can also be challenging and strenuous, which is why it’s essential to know what to expect before you set off on your journey. At our trekking company, we pride ourselves on providing you with the best possible experience and ensuring your safety and comfort throughout your climb.
Before you begin your climb, you’ll meet with our Trekking Operations Manager and Mountain guide for a comprehensive briefing. We’ll go over the route, safety procedures, and any health concerns you may have. You’ll also have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have, ensuring you’re fully prepared for the climb ahead. We’ll inspect your trekking gear to ensure that you have everything you need to be safe and comfortable, and if you’re missing anything, we can rent it to you.
During your climb, you’ll only carry your backpack with essentials, such as water for the day’s hike. Our porters will carry all equipment, food, and additional luggage, making them the true heroes of the mountain. Our permanent mountain guides will lead the way, ensuring your safety and offering encouragement and assistance when needed. If necessary, they’ll call off the climb due to weather, altitude sickness, or injury, prioritizing your safety above all else.
Meals: Our cooks are miracle workers, preparing 3-course meals, hot drinks, and snacks to keep you nourished and energized throughout your climb. The drinking water comes from mountain streams and is boiled before you drink it, ensuring it’s safe and clean.
Accommodation: On most routes, you’ll sleep in high-quality two-person tents, pitched and taken down by our team of porters. This means you can concentrate on getting to the top, one step at a time, without worrying about setting up camp. Our camping gear is of the highest standard, imported from South Africa and Germany, inspected, and cleaned regularly by our equipment team in Arusha. Although there are no showers on the camping routes, you’ll be provided with a bowl of hot water in the morning to start the day fresh. When climbing the Marangu Route, you’ll overnight in mountain huts.
To ensure a successful climb, it’s important to climb slowly to increase your acclimatization time and maximize your chances of reaching the summit. We recommend allowing a minimum of five nights, preferably even more, to avoid altitude sickness and enjoy the beauty of the mountain. Take your time, enjoy the journey, and leave the rest to us.
Embarking on a Mount Kilimanjaro climb with our trekking company means you’ll be in good hands every step of the way. From comprehensive briefings to high-quality camping gear, experienced guides, and delicious food, we strive to provide you with the best possible experience.
