What is the weather like in Kilimanjaro?
Mount Kilimanjaro is located in the Northern part of Tanzania. Seasonal changes are almost imperceptible here, because the Mount is located near the equator. Almost all the time the weather here is sunny, and rains are rare. The only exception is the two small so-called “rainy seasons”, which are in May and November, when it is more cloudy and the chance of precipitation is higher, especially in the morning and evening. At 3500 meters point the average annual daily temperature is +14 Celsius, falling to zero at night. Kilimanjaro climbing expeditions are organized all the year round.
THE BEST SEASON FOR CLIMBING MOUNT KILIMANJARO
This time of the year is the most suitable for climbing, because the weather is more predictable and less changeable: the precipitation is rare with moderate cloudiness and windiness. Overall, the climate is dry and calm. The temperature at the top of the Mount fluctuates between -5 and -10 C. The ridge of the crater is not covered with snow, and no special mountaineering equipment is required to reach it.
April, May and November
Climbing during the rainy season is still possible, but we recommend you taking extra pieces of thermal underwear, socks and T-shirts. Precipitation, cloudiness, windiness and humidity are higher than in the sunny season. The temperature at the top of the Mount fluctuates between -5 and -15 C. The ridge of the crater is covered with 5-15 cm of snow, and wearing gaiters or ankle-boots is recommended.
OUR CLIENTS’ FEEDBACK

When planning your journey to Africa by yourself you have to search for the cheapest options of safari and climbing Kilimanjaro. I can say from my own experience that the local companies by reducing the price of travel often may trick you: give you cheap dirty hotels (though you paid for good quality), the meager food and cheat on different services. After this negative experience you have to specify every detail. With Altezza planning turns into pleasure, I like that they include all spendings in the price, it is always comfortable and even cheaper than the other loca...see further
Climbing and SafariMy two-weeks adventure in Africa is over! All stuff are unpacked, and all the impressions, more or less , arranged on the shelves. The trip was more than spontaneous, I was traveling alone, and my knowledge of the language was so poor and little, however with Altezza Travel I did not even think about difficulties and organizational matters, only admired the local scenery and enjoyed the adventure! :-) Usually, I’m planning the journey by myself, during the process you often realize that something is missing. But when I have returned from this trip, I understand that more intensely and perfectly I would not travel! I joined the group of wonderful people, terribly miss them now, and the ser...see further
