Mount Kilimanjaro

When to Climb Mount Kilimanjaro?

While the weather in Tanzania changes with the seasons, Kilimanjaro is so massive that it essentially creates its own weather patterns.

This means that the weather on Kilimanjaro is fairly consistent all year. Plan your trek around the following weather conditions, regardless of when you want to climb:

  • The foothills will be tropical, with high humidity and temperatures in the high 70s and 90s.
  • The summit is arctic, with nighttime temperatures frequently falling below zero.
  • You will encounter every temperature in between along the way.
  • You may encounter heavy rain or snow at any time of year.
  • Climbing is not recommended in April, early May, or late November because the weather on and off the mountain is too wet for comfortable treks.
  • The rest of Tanzania experiences cooler, drier weather during the dry season (late May to October) and warmer, wetter weather during the green season (November to March) (December through March).

Kilimanjaro Climbing Gears

We have a large selection of kilimanjaro climbing gear and equipment from top brands such as Red Fox, Black Diamond, The North Face, Mountain Hardwear, La Sportiva, and others. Our rental shop is regularly restocked with new gear shipped directly from the United States so that all of our guests can feel pristine on the adventure of a lifetime. If Kilimanjaro is your first big summit and you’re not sure you want to invest a small fortune in all the required items of the same quality, renting our climbing gears for the duration of the expedition is the best option!

Medical Checkups - 2* a Day

You will fill out a medical clearance form prior to the climb so that the crew can assess your general physical condition. When the expedition begins, you will be subjected to two mandatory health checks, one in the morning and one in the evening, by our trained guides. Throughout the climb, the guides will keep a medical record for each climber in order to track the progression of your condition. Both the expedition members and the Lomo Tanzania climbing crew must undergo a medical examination. Regular health checks can aid in detecting the onset of altitude sickness and preventing its progression. This is one of the reasons that so many climbers prefer us.

Professional Prepared Meals

Our mountain chefs are constantly praised for their ability to prepare delicious restaurant-style meals in mountain conditions. We want our Kilimanjaro adventures to be as comfortable as possible in the wild, and we can’t help but indulge you when it comes to food.

Mountain Weather Conditions

We personally check the weather forecast on Kilimanjaro using satellite data, ensuring that your expedition is properly prepared for the ascent.

Kilimanjaro Frequent Asked Questions

Qatar Airways, KLM, Turkish Airlines, Edelweiss, and Ethiopian Airways all fly to Tanzania on a regular basis. If you are visiting Tanzania to climb Kilimanjaro or go on a safari, we recommend booking an international flight directly into Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO). 

If you are unable to fly internationally to Kilimanjaro Airport, you can fly into Zanzibar (ZNZ) or Dar es Salaam (DAR) and then take a local Tanzanian airline to Kilimanjaro. Managers at Lomo Tanzania Safaris can assist you in purchasing domestic flight tickets.
