Mount Kilimanjaro stands almost 6000 meters above sea level, but one does not need to be an experienced mountain climber to reach its peak but moderately fit. To climb to the summit of Kilimanjaro, you need to be in a fit and healthy state with a good all-round condition, strong will power– we will do the rest.
What to expect when climbing Mt Kilimanjaro Before you ascend on your trekking adventure, you will meet with our Trekking Operations Manager for a briefing. Route, safety procedures and health issues will be discussed in detail and you have enough time to ask any remaining questions. Your trekking gear will be inspected to ensure that you have everything you need to be safe and comfortable. If you are missing any gear, you can rent it from us. During your climb, you only carry your backpack with essentials such as water for the day’s hike.
Our porters will carry all equipment, food and additional luggage – they are tough climbers and the true heroes of the mountain. Your safety is vital to us. Most of our mountain guides have been part of our team for many years, been up Kilimanjaro hundreds of times and all receive regular training. You are in good hands. Our cooks are miracle workers. With simple gas cookers, they conjure up 3-course feasts, hot drinks and snacks to revive and nourish you when you need it most. Drinking water comes from mountain streams and is boiled before you drink it.
