Climb Kilimanjaro travel dates

Best time to climb up Kilimanjaro.

Your adventure climb up Kilimanjaro can start on any day of the week, all year round!

The best time to climb however will be during January until mid-March and from mid-June to end October due to the weather conditions traditionally being more stable during that time.

Weather conditions on Kilimanjaro, like all other high altitude mountains, are unpredictable to say the least and can change rapidly, hence – go prepared!

Another consideration when planning your Kilimanjaro climb is to have your summit attempt fall during a full moon cycle.

All Kilimanjaro summit attempts generally start around midnight and having a full moon during your ascent to Uhuru Peak will help illuminate your path and also the glaciers as you walk past them – quite surreal!

Having your summit bid coincide with a full moon, while beautiful, of course does not mean that the mountain cannot be summited at new moon or any other time.

For your convenience we have listed the full moon dates for the near future and also the indicative itinerary starting dates based on a standard 6 day route up Kilimanjaro.

As mentioned above, note that your Kilimanjaro adventure is not restricted to the below dates and can start on any day of the week, depending on your preference and on availability.
