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.

Employees and administration of Altezza company took swift action in response to our demands including individual requirements and wishes. They h...see further
Climbing and SafariMy trip to Tanzania was a memorable one. I think that everyone needs to see the African wildlife through your own eyes, is unlike anything else. Everything is special here: great reserves with unusual trees and unique animals, mode of life of Tanzanians and snowbound peak of Kilimanjaro. So interesting to watch the animals in their natural habitat. They do not pay attention to observers and doing their own things: eat, sleep, hunt, mate and breed – I was able to see all of it and took pictures of the camera :) Honestly, there are a lot of different type of exotic animals. They are different, some species coexist together. Guides were talking with each other and pass the information where s...see further
