Mount Kilimanjaro Climbing

When to go Kilimanjaro

Best Time to Take a Mount Kilimanjaro Trekking Tour

Another reason why Mount Kilimanjaro trekking is so popular is that this mountain can be climbed all year round. Its location, close to the equator, means that you won’t find the typical four seasons that you may be used to at home. There are only two seasons here: rainy and dry season.

While trekking is possible throughout the year, the rainy seasons, from March to May and again from November to December, are not the ideal times to conquer this mountain. Paths to the summit can be slippery so any trekkers should be well prepared with the proper equipment.

The best months for Mount Kilimanjaro trekking are August and September, and January and February.
