To assist you in getting ready, we’ve put together a detailed packing list specifically for Kilimanjaro. Climbing the mountain means experiencing various climates, from warm and humid forests to freezing summit zones with glaciers and snow. So, it’s crucial to be prepared for everything from sun and wind to rain. We’ll provide tents, camping gear, food, cooking equipment, and other communal items to make your experience easier. Your personal belongings will be packed in a duffel bag, which porters will carry for you, while you’ll carry a daypack with your essentials during the trek.

THE BEST TOUR AGENCY FOR KILIMANJARO TREKKING AND WILDLIFE SAFARIES This was the first time I had travelled with Mr Lyimo . The company specialises in expert-led cultural and wildlife tours in Tanzania East Africa. Group numbers are small, accommodation at the hotel in Moshi Kilimajaro was comfortable and food excellent. The expert mountain and safari guide who accompanied us was outstanding - passionate, informative, engaging and entertaining. The itinerary for 6 days Climbing Kilimanjaro and 5 Days wildlife safari was very well thought out, combining leisure time with activity and not-to-be-missed opportunities to swim in the Kikuletwa Hot springs ( Maji Moto) . The client is obviously at the heart of the itinerary planning, and attention to detail is second to none. I would highly recommend this company to anyone wanting a fun, relaxed, educational holiday with fine food - they will deliver! Thanks Mr Lyimo for your good arrangement.
