Mountain Trekking/Hiking/Climbing Information

Seasons and Weather Conditions

The best time to visit both Mt. Kenya and Kilimanjaro is during the dry season, especially just after the rains have finished. The dry seasons run from June to late September and December to February. Although as the climatic conditions become more unpredictable, many trekkers attempt the climbing during March, October and November. Daytime temperatures on the lower parts of the mountain are often pleasantly warm. As soon as the sun drops air becomes very cold. At night and on the higher parts of the mountain ,temperatures often drops below freezing point, so warm clothes and sleeping bags are essential.

Altitude

Although many thousands of trekkers successfully reach their peaks every year without any difficult many others donít make it to the top because they suffer from altitude sickness. To avoid this, it is very important to acclimatize by ascending slowly and steadly. Even if you are fit, you should not rush up the climbing.
