If you plan to do a trekking trip to summit Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania you will need to prepare accordingly. Therefore I put together this video where I tell you all the gear and equipment I packed for my adventure. I was trekking in September/October so I needed to prepare for warm (25°C) temperatures in the rainforest zone, moderate temperatures (10-20°C) and freezing temperatures (0 to -5°C in camps, -10°C on the summit) at the same time. Therefore this Kilimanjaro packing list is suitable for most seasons and all routes but I also point out differences where needed (e.g. in matters of warm vs. cold months). The list provided is based on my experience

Located in North East Tanzania Mount Kilimanjaro is with 5895m the highest mountain in Africa which makes it one of the seven summits. Apart from that it is also the highest free standing mountain in the world. Kilimanjaro is a dormant volcano with three three volcanic cones, “Kibo”, “Mawenzi”, and „Shira“. The highest point is located on Kibo – after the independence of Tanzania it was named Uhuru Peak in 1964 – which is Kiswhali and translates into „freedom Peak“.

–About my Cooperation with G Adventures–
For many years I was searching for a suitable partner who offers tours in South America which align with my style of traveling as well as my values. After many meetings I’m glad I found this partner with G Adventures who offer many adventurous tour packages for travelers like me…but who also care about the environment and local communities in order to execute sustainable tourism. I forced this cooperation because I like the products and the philosophy of the company. Nevertheless all opinions, recommendations and views are my own.
