When is a good time to Climb Kilimanjaro
Being so close to the equator, Tanzania and Kilimanjaro do not experience the usual extremes of winter and summer. Instead, the nation experiences alternating wet and dry seasons. As rain, mud, ice, and snow place a greater strain on the body, it is, therefore, best to attempt your Kilimanjaro climb in the warmer, drier months.
Timing the hike to the summit during the full moon is a popular choice, as the brighter nights improve visibility, and the moon hanging overhead makes for a beautiful moment when you’re standing atop The Roof of Africa.
