Trekking Kilimanjaro Information
Trek Kilimanjaro: the best time to visit
In contrast to other popular mountaineering destinations, you may climb Kilimanjaro trek expeditions are available all year round, however there April-May (“the big rainy season”) and November (“the small rainy season”) are rainy months in Tanzania. At the same time, they feature two great advantages:
- the number of other climbers on the Mount Kilimanjaro is minimal.
- The wildlife is booming in the rainy season
At the same time, Lemosho and Northern Circuit Route are the least frequented routes throughout the whole year. Therefore you should not specifically focus on the rainy seasons if you prefer a seclusive Mt. Kilimanjaro trek. Opting for Lemosho and Norther Circuit routes is always a good alternative.
See our Kilimanjaro trek best time of year article for further insights.

Kilimanjaro Trek Reviews
ClimbingDear Altezza Travel team! Thank you very much for the organization of the climb Kilimanjaro in February 2016. Everything was prepared at the highest level. Though Rongai route is rather difficult (comparing with others routes), everything ran according to plan. This route was desert because of its complexity, so I could admire African views without others tourists. The high-altitude acclimatization was a success, due to your recommendations, my physical training was in conformity with the requirements. Drivers, guides and porters worked perfectly. Employees and administration of Altezza company took swift action in response to our demands... Rongai route is rather difficult (comparing with others routes), everything ran according to plan.

Employees and administration of Altezza company took swift action in response to our demands including individual requirements and wishes. They have always been in touch. I was pleasantly surprised by European style of doing business and customer focus of company in such country as Tanzania with an absolutely different mentality and a local color. Thank you very much for your great work. See you again!">
