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:

  1. the number of other climbers on the Mount Kilimanjaro is minimal.
  2. 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.

Because the Mount Kilimanjaro has five distinct climatic zones, the temperature here varies from “tropical heat” (+20C⁰-25C⁰) at the onset of your trek to “arctic cold” in the summit camps.

    I cooperate with Altezza and can strongly recommend them as a professional company, which will organize your trip five plus. When planning your journey to Africa by yourself you have to search for the cheapest options of safari and trekking 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, ... trekking Kilimanjaro.

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 local companies offer. Altezza offers only comfortable hotels, brand new safe safari jeeps, professional equipment for the climbing on mountains. In addition, they think through every step of the ascent on Kilimanjaro, guides provide you great food and hot tea, support and help at the right time. So I appreciate the organization of the first Russian companies in Tanzania Altezza and recommend them as a responsible company.">

I also want to thank all team that accompanied me: Yuda, Godfrey, Emmanuel, Isaya, Richard, Rajabu and Abdalah. By the way, do not worry about food. The cook will note your wishes and cook meals that you want. The most important is not lose the appetite at an altitude. I would like to tell those who decided to climb that the main thing is to believe in yourself and properly count your forces. During all route you will be measured the oxygen level in blood and the pulse rate. Listen to the guide and choose the right speed. Good luck to everyone! And lastly I want to thank manager Svetlana for the good tips and well organized work.">

    Dear 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.
