Clothing of various weights is suggested, because you will want to dress in layers (removing layers as you heat up from walking, adding layers as you cool down from resting). During the first two days, climbers may find it comfortable to wear shorts and tee shirts. However, temperatures will change at higher altitudes. By the third day of your climb, it can be very windy and the temperature can fall to freezing at night. A limited selection of equipment is available for rental at the base of the mountain. It is, however, suggested that climbers bring all of their own equipment.

Luggage Information

During a climb of Mt. Kilimanjaro, travelers should plan to travel with only what is required for the climb (excess luggage can be left behind in Arusha and collected after the climb). Porters will carry only duffel-type bags during the climb (no framed backpacks or suitcases) and should not exceed 20kgs in weight per person. Additional mountain luggage may result in a supplementary charge.

You need only carry a daypack with the personal items you will require during the day (your personal supply of water, your camera (and film) and any clothes you may want to put on or discard).

Your passport, money, and permit papers should be kept with you at all times during the climb and also carried in your daypack. Please be advised that luggage carried by porters is available to travelers only while in camp and is NOT accessible during the day.
