Kilimanjaro Packing List

Kilimanjaro, Mt. Kenya (Lenana Point) and Mt. Meru do not require rock-climbing skills. However, a good measure of perseverance and physical fitness are needed. With a climbing time of 5-7 hours per day and on summit days, from 10-14 hours (depending on the mountain), it is very important that in order to achieve a good acclimization you remember to hike and breathe slowly and evenly.

The routes on Kilimanjaro, Mt. Kenya and Mt. Meru require some hiking experience. Due to the high load on the heart and circulation, we recommend consulting a physician before deciding to undertake these journeys. In addition, travel through these countries can at times require a “tough attitude” with variably long travel times and rough road conditions. Breakdowns are therefore pardoned. For persons with back trouble (i.e. intervertebral disk disease), these trips are not recommended. Please know that nationally certified and standard means of transport are used.

Important Note: We would like to point out that when it comes to delays, changes of route or program due to unfavorable conditions, bad weather or organizational difficulties, etc., we ask that you please keep an adventurous spirit and mentality in mind and practice tolerance and patience where necessary.
