Overview

This Kilimanjaro trek takes us along the quieter Rongai Route. This is one of the most scenic trekking routes on Kilimanjaro, providing a gradual climb through forest, farmland, open moor and has expansive views northwards to Amboseli National Park in Kenya. As an aid to acclimatisation, we include a rest day at the idyllic Mawenzi Tarn Camp, beneath the imposing rock spires. This additional day on the mountain dramatically increases our chances of summit success as we are better adjusted to the altitude. A pre-dawn start on the last day of our ascend enables us to reach the high point at Uhuru Peak (5895m) in time to see the summit snows illuminated by the golden light of sunrise. Kilimanjaro's prominence, being one of the world's tallest freestanding mountains, and Africa’s highest, makes it a great objective for either a life-time goal or a personal challenge.


This exceptional trekking adventure holiday offers the chance to summit Kilimanjaro by way of its finest and most enjoyable routes, alongside an additional day to acclimatise. This is probably not a journey you are going to do more than once, so ensure you have the best chances of summiting, and that you enjoy it!

Further options:

Lemosho Route (8 days trekking on Kili)

Kilimanjaro and Mt Kenya (6 days trekking on Kili)

Mt Meru & Kilimanjaro (6 days trekking on Kili)

Confused as to which route to choose? Check out our expert guide: Which route to climb Kilimanjaro?

 

For safari extensions we offer a 4 day option which can be done with any dates, or a longer Serengeti Safari which combines with our October Rongai date.

For most, standing on the summit of the highest peak in Africa is either a life-time goal or a personal challenge. On Kilimanjaro walking days are between 4-7 hours, most being around 6-7 hours. The summit day is long with a pre-dawn start and around 12hrs of walking. All trails on the mountain are well marked and kept. Higher up there are some section of scree which we have to negotiate. They are easy to follow, however you will always be behind your expert guide to ensure that you walk slow enough to adjust to the altitude.

 

A typical day starts with early morning tea in your tent at 0600. After a hot breakfast, our porters take their loads and we leave camp for our days walk. Lunch is at around 1100 and we aim to be at camp at around 1500-1600 to relax before dinner in the mess tent later. Of course certain days are longer, especially the summit day!

 

Don’t forget – Kilimanjaro is a big mountain (Africa’s biggest in fact!), you will need to be fit and mentally prepared to ensure summit success, and return home with the unique memories and the satisfaction of this massive achievement. You should aim to be at least fit enough to walk for at least two days in a row for 5-7 hours without a problem. Put on your boots and get walking and with a huge amount of determination you’ll be able to do it. Get training now and you can join the exclusive group who have summited.

Why KE?

We are different from the majority of the competition on this Rongai Route because we have an additional night at Mawenzi Tarn. We do this to allow the body to acclimatise better, which in turn increases summit success. Of course an additional day on the mountain increases the price (park fees are charged by the day along with staff costs) - but we think this additional amount is worth the increased chance of standing on that summit.

An early start for the scenic drive around Kilimanjaro to reach the village of Rongai on Tanzania’s border with Kenya. Our route takes us through Marangu and then due north, through a number of interesting settlements. At Rongai, we complete our Kilimanjaro National Park registration, meet our trek staff and set off on trek. Starting out at an altitude of around 1950 metres, the very pleasant trail winds its way between farmland (maize and potato fields) and pine forest, gaining height steadily. In the forest, the animal that we are most likely to spot is the striking black and white colobus monkey. After 4 hours trekking, the forest becomes thinner and we set up camp on the edge of the moorland zone and can enjoy excellent views out across the Kenyan plains.

A longer day’s trekking today, gaining close to 1000 metres. A steady walk in the morning leads to the so-called "Second Cave," where we take lunch in sight of the peak of Kibo and the ice fields on the crater rim. After lunch, we turn off towards the jagged summit of Mawenzi and follow a trail across open moorland to a sheltered valley near Kikelewa Caves. Unusual giant tree-groundsels are the dominant plant species on this part of the route.

By the time we reach our next camping place at Mawenzi Tarn, which is spectacularly situated beneath the rocky multiple summits of Mawenzi, we have passed the upper limit of vegetation (other than grasses) on the mountain. The afternoon is free for exploring the area.

A vital acclimatisation day at the camp beside Mawenzi Tarn. We will climb up onto the slopes of the Mawenzi volcanic cone to around 4500 metres. This day of acclimatisation, as well as being necessary from a safety point of view, will dramatically increase the group's chances of reaching the summit. Only a few operators include this day in their itinerary. It also gives you an opportunity to stay in a campsite more than 1 night.

A very early start as we set off by the light of our head-torches, on a zigzag trail on rough volcanic scree. It is a tough 4 to 5 hour climb of almost 1000 metres to the crater rim at Gillmans Point (5685m), which is a convenient point to rest and watch the sunrise on Mawenzi. It is a further 3-hour round trip to Uhuru Peak the highest point in Africa. Usually in the early morning, the conditions are clear and there are panoramic views over the crater, to Mawenzi and Mount Meru (4565m), looking very small below us. This part of the route takes us through a moonscape of volcanic rock and remnant glaciers with their impressive ice cliffs. After admiring the summit views and taking the obligatory summit photos we pat ourselves on the back for this awesome achievement. We then retrace our path around the crater rim we make a rapid descent to the Kibo Hut (4700m). We have lunch here, before setting off on the long descent to our camp at Horombo (3720m). A long day trekking - but so rewarding.

As we descend from Horombo, we begin to encounter more vegetation and the lower part of the route is through pine forest.

We say fond farewell to our trusty guide, staff and the porters who have helped us during the past week and pick up our certificates of ascent. We transfer to our hotel, a delight after camping on the mountains slopes. Here we have a shower and a beer (not necessarily in that order) and reflect on the climb and our achievements. A celebratory dinner and a well-deserved sleep in the hotel bed!

If you have additional nights which are not booked at the group hotel then we can provide private airport transfers at an additional cost.

Hotel contact details and an emergency number will be provided with your booking confirmation.

All meals are included from dinner on Day 1 to breakfast on Day 9.

It is not recommended to drink untreated water from the taps. If you are on a trekking or cycling holiday, water is supplied to fill up your individual bottles. This will be boiled, filtered or provided in large jerry cans or 5 litre bottles. Additionally you should take purification tablets or a filter bottle (such as a Water-To-Go bottle) to treat your water when in towns or where water is not supplied. We do not encourage the purchasing of single use plastic bottles.

Being hydrated and well fed is important element to summiting success. Our head chef and cook team works hard to ensure that the menu is carefully planned as you ascend, especially as it’s not unusual for people to lose their appetites at altitude. It is pretty amazing what this team of experts are able to produce on the side of the mountain.

At breakfast we have a hot drink (tea, coffee or hot chocolate) with porridge, or eggs, sausages and toast with jam, marmalade or honey. Lunch is usually three courses; starting with soup, followed by a hot meal such as cheese toast or chicken and ending with some fresh fruit or sometimes a muffin. Afternoon tea is served at camp shortly after we arrive, usually around 1500-1600, which is a hot drink with a snack such as peanuts, popcorn, or malt biscuits. Dinner is usually three-courses. Starting with soup, then a carbohydrate such as rice, pasta or potatoes, with beef, chicken, sausage or corned beef and cheese. The end of the meal there will be some fruit or something sweet. Vegetarians will have beans or a vegetable mix with different sauces. Please inform us of any special dietary requirements. You should bring your own trail snacks for the walking days.

Whilst we can cater for vegetarians, albeit sometimes with a more limited choice, we cannot always provide special diets.  Due to the nature of some of the trips that we operate and the countries in which we operate them, it can be very hard (and sometimes impossible) to cater for a wide range of dietary choices and you may have to supplement your diet with food/snacks from home.  If you have specific dietary requirements please do speak to our sales team and they will be able to advise you whether or not we will be able to offer your specific choice.  Please note that we are unable to provide separate menus and cannot accept liability for any problems arising from special dietary requirements or intolerances.

At the start of the holiday you have one night at a comfortable hotel with swimming pool a 15 minute drive from Kilimanjaro Airport. We have another night here at the end of the trek.

Whilst on the mountain there are 6 nights camping. We use high quality, spacious 3 person tents. These are Simond Makalu tents and are expedition quality. Only 2 people and their bags stay in each tent. They are surprisingly warm at night. You will need to bring your own sleeping bag, although you can hire them through KE if you prefer. Camping mattresses are provided by KE. We also have a dining tent with a table and chairs for meal times. The team put up the tents and take them down in the mornings for you - so you don't have to worry about that. You will be looked after very well.

We take along our own portable toilets and a little tent for privacy. These are kept nice and clean, and loo roll is provided. There are long drop toilets at each campsite which are maintained by the National Park Authority - but we find its just best to avoid these!

If you are travelling by yourself, you will be paired up with another single client of the same sex. Single hotel rooms and single tents are available for a supplementary cost. If you are planning on extending your holiday additional nights at the group hotel are available on request. All hotel accommodation is subject to change.

Our groups are led by a professional and qualified tour leader. They have led groups for many years and have considerable experience on the mountain. Summit success is often attributed to the quality and experience of the guides. We are also supported by a full trek crew including cooks and porters.

This holiday involves going to very high altitude. During the course of your trip you will be spending at least one night above 4000 metres and/or trekking to 5000 metres or above. This is not something that you should worry about; the human body is quite capable of adapting to a very wide range of altitudes, but it is important that we follow some simple rules in order to acclimatise successfully. Before coming on this holiday you should read the advice on trekking at high altitude. Unless you have previous experience of trekking above 4000 metres you should consult one of our trekking experts before embarking on this holiday. On this trip we carry a portable altitude chamber (PAC-bag) and/or bottled oxygen for use in emergencies.

The entrance fees and camping fees for the Kilimanjaro National Park form a considerable part of the cost of climbing this peak and are also prone to increase. We include these fees in your holiday price.

Approximately £200-250 per person (or equivalent in US dollars or Euros) should be allowed for tips, soft drinks, snacks and miscellaneous expenses. If your flight departs in the late afternoon or evening, you may wish to budget for a lunchtime snack on the last day. Alcoholic drinks, souvenirs and optional activities are additional so you may wish to budget for these.

You can choose to take your money in pounds sterling, US dollars or euros, but US dollars in small notes can also be used in emergencies where change facilities are not available. Tips to trek staff can be paid either in Tanzanian shillings or in US dollars, or a mix of both (USD are preferable). There will be the opportunity to change money into local currency on arrival at the airport on arrival, and we advise you to use the facilities here. Credit cards are useful and it is a good idea to carry one in case of emergency, however be aware that not all lodges/hotels accept cards.

Tips are the accepted way of saying thank you to your guides and porters. Tips they receive are seen as a personal thank you from group members and are entirely dependent on the service that was given. Tipping should be decided and given by the group as a whole rather than from individuals. As a rough guide we suggest that a total contribution of approximately $150-200 from each group member. This will then be divided between the guides and support staff.

For this holiday you should take one piece of luggage, which should be a soft and sturdy duffel bag and a daypack. Your bag on trek will be carried by porters and should not weigh more than 14kg. This weight allowance is strictly enforced.  It is possible to leave clothes or other items not required on trek at the group hotel. For international flights please check your baggage allowance with your airline.

Please be aware that plastic/polythene bags are illegal in Tanzania. The law says that they are not allowed to be manufactured, imported, used or sold in Tanzania (since Jun 2019).

For each holiday there is a minimum number of participants required to enable it to go ahead. Once the minimum number is reached, the trip status will change from 'Available' to 'Guaranteed to run'. You can check the trip status for each departure in ‘Dates and Prices’ table. Other than in exceptional circumstances, we will not cancel a trip once it has achieved this guaranteed to run status and so you are free to proceed with your international flight booking and other travel arrangements.

The information that we provide is for UK passport holders. A passport with 6 months remaining validity at the end of your stay is generally required, and you should have at least 2 blank pages for each country that you visit.

It is your responsibility to ensure that you have the correct travel documents and visas for your holiday. Please ensure that you check for the latest advice before travel. For the most up to date information on entry requirements, please visit the UK Government website.

Visa Tanzania

UK passport holders do require a visa. The visa fee is $50 (single entry) and is obtainable on arrival or prior to departure online at https://eservices.immigration.go.tz/visa/. The online application requires a scanned passport photo, a scanned copy of your passport bio page and evidence of your return flight details. 

 

If you are arriving into Kilimanjaro Airport, Dar es Salaam or into Tanzania via the Namanga border crossing, we advise you to get a visa prior to arrival as there can be long queues for visas services at customs.

For visas on arrival you require 2 passport photos for the visa, however we recommend you travel with 4 passport photos just in case. Payment must be in cash when getting your visa on arrival.

USA passport holders do require a visa. The visa fee is $100. It is advised to obtain this prior to departure, full and up to date information can be found online https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/international-travel/International-Travel-Country-Information-Pages/Tanzania.html

 

We (KE) require copy of the information page of your passport in order to make the arrangements in Tanzania. A colour scan must be emailed or posted to us at the earliest opportunity.

 

TRAVELLING WITH UNDER 18YRS

If the children (under 18yrs) with whom you are travelling have a different surname to yours, you should consider taking with you the child's full birth certificate. It is not a requirement, but some border personnel in Tanzania as well as the UK, may request to see it when travelling to/from Africa.

If you are travelling via Kenya to your destination you may also require a visa for Kenya. If you have connecting flights and your baggage has been checked all the way through to your destination you will not need a Kenyan visa.

If you have a severe allergy please inform the KE office before you travel. We will do all we can to help, but we cannot guarantee an allergy free environment on KE trips. You will need to carry your own treatment for the allergy with you, as 'adrenaline auto-injectors' are not carried as standard by KE leaders and staff. You should inform your leader on arrival of your allergy, and let them know where you keep your adrenaline pen.

Dengue fever is a known risk in places visited. It is a tropical viral disease spread by daytime biting mosquitoes. There is currently no vaccine or prophylaxis available and therefore the best form of prevention is to avoid being bitten. We recommend you take precautions to avoid mosquito bites.

VACCINATIONS

You should contact your doctor or travel clinic to check whether you specific require any vaccinations or other preventive measures. You should be up to date with routine courses and boosters as recommended in the UK e.g. diphtheria-tetanus-polio and measles-mumps-rubella), along with hepatitis A and typhoid. Malarial prophylaxis are required. A certificate of yellow fever vaccination is required if travelling from countries with risk of yellow fever transmission and for travellers having transited for more than 12 hrs through an airport of a country with risk of yellow fever transmission. On holidays to more remote areas you should also have a dentist check up. A good online resource is Travel Health Pro.

The fitter you are the more you will enjoy your holiday and you are more likely to summit if you are not totally exhausted at the end of each day. Training should not be a chore, use your Kilimanjaro trip as an excuse to get out in the evenings after work or a walking weekend in the hills. Aerobic activities such as running, biking and swimming help overall fitness. You should aim to be at least fit enough to walk for at least two days in a row for 5-7 hours without a problem. Put on your boots and get walking and you’ll be able to do it. The summit day is a tough day with an 8-10 hrs ascent and a 6-8 hrs descent – and alongside the fitness you need plenty of determination for this day!

There is little you can do to prepare for the altitude but if you have an excellent level of fitness this can help.

We would recommend wearing and testing out the equipment and clothing that you will be taking with you before you go. Best to find out before you go that your new boots give you a little blister, or the trousers are just a little on the tight side, or the jacket just has too many pockets. At least you can do something about it before the trip.

The driest months are June to October when there is the least likelihood of rain or clouds higher up. This is also peak season to climb Kilimanjaro, especially as many people are on summer holidays. January to end March is also a drier period compared to the long rainy season in April/May and a second, shorter rainy period in November/early December. January to March is usually a bit colder, which can put some people off, but means that there are less people on the mountain. Rain is usually lower down during this period. Temperatures vary greatly with altitude. At the foot of Kilimanjaro it’s usually approximately 25- 28⁰C, dropping to 15⁰C at night. At 3000m, daytime temperatures can be around 15⁰C. Above 4000m, the night-time temperatures will fall below freezing and it is usually no more than 10⁰C in the day.

As a reputable tour operator, KE supports the British Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office's ‘Travel Aware campaign to enable British citizens to prepare for their journeys overseas. The 'Travel Aware' website provides a single, authoritative source of advice for all kinds of travellers and we recommend that prior to travel, all KE clients visit the official UK Government website at travelaware.campaign.gov.uk and read the FCDO Travel Advice for their chosen destination. North Americans can also check out the U.S. Department of State website: www.travel.state.gov for essential travel advice and tips.

KE treat the safety and security of all clients as the most important aspect of any trip we organise. We would not run any trip that we did not consider reasonably safe.  Should the FCDO advise against travel for any reason, we will contact everyone booked to travel to discuss the situation.  We receive regular updates direct from the FCDO and are in constant touch with our contacts on the ground.  If you have any questions about government travel advice, please call our office.

KE do not encourage the use of single use plastic items. We are ensuring that our agents all over the world are working together to reduce the problem and educate those around them. We are leading by example in our KE office by reducing our plastic use.

After breakfast we leave Arusha and drive to Manyara National Park. The road winds through luxurious jungle where groups of a hundred or more baboons can be found along the road. Blue monkeys climb in the acacia tress and the bushbuck antelope gentle grazing in the shade of the forest. In the meantime the impressive silvery-cheeked hornbills have a cacophonic concert in canopy! We stop for a picnic lunch under the Umbrella Thorn before continuing our game drive. This small park has herds of elephant, buffalo, zebra, wildebeest and giraffe. It is famous of it's lions who lounge in the Umbrella Thorn (not the one we have our picnic under though!). At the end of the day we drive to our accommodation for the next 2 nights, on the green, lush outskirts of the small village of Karatu.

After breakfast we drive the 30 mins to Ngorongoro Crater. We spend a full day here in the park discovering its wonders. The crater has an inside diameter of 20km, and is 600m from its rim. It is also one of the places in Tanzania to see the Big 5; elephant, lion, rhino, leopard and buffalo. More than 550 bird species are found here, and Lake Magadi in the crater is often pink because of the flamingos. We can also see the hippo and buffalo lounging in the mud in Ngoitotitok. It's a special place. We return to our lodge in Karatu for our overnight.

Meals

We have breakfast and depart our accommodation for Tarangire National Park. This park is famed for its large herds of wildlife, especially the elephants between August to January. It also harbours antelope species which are difficult to see in other parks such as' gerenuk, kudu, oryx and eland. We have a picnic lunch and see the many baobab trees on the hilly plains that Africa is so famous for. The landscape is also dotted with a large number of termite mounds. The Tarangire River crosses through the park giving way to permanent water points - a life line for the wildlife. At the end of the afternoon we drive back to our accommodation in Arusha.

Summiting Kili as a “mature” novice high-altitude trekker - plus some safari-ing ★★★★★

Due to the pandemic, I undertook this trip after two cancellations and three years after originally booking it… this meant that my “new” walking boots were very well broken in and that I was a couple of years older than I’d intended. I’ve walked/ trekked all of my adult life as a casual, infrequent walker - including a couple of excellent trips in the Balkans with KE,, one of which was preparation for Kilimanjaro. So this review is mainly aimed at someone who wouldn’t consider themse lves as a “serious” or experienced trekker. Our guide, Onex, and his team were exceptional throughout the trek - couldn’t fault them on any aspect. Food was good especially considering that we were camping on a mountain and everything had to be carried with us and we we very well looked after at all times both when walking and when in camp. Onex is a very experienced lead guide who has an unbelievable 100% record when it comes to getting folks to the summit. That being said, safety is the foremost consideration and during the briefing for “summit night” it was made very clear that significant symptoms of altitude sickness or intervention with oxygen would mean immediate evacuation to lower altitude and an end to the summit attempt. Basic tips: Do your research and reading on climbing Kilimanjaro but don’t necessarily be put off by the potential issues related to the altitude. Random physical factors over which you have no control appear to play a part in how high altitude affects you. I consider myself as only reasonable walking fit but by adhering to the main pieces of advice I had no issues directly related to being at altitude - having an excellent guide and taking the Rongai route with its extra acclimatisation day obviously helped. I took altitude tablets as directed and would absolutely recommend doing this - they are preventative and therefore are intended to stop symptoms from starting. I also made sure I that stayed hydrated - a tip I picked up from our guide on my Balkan trip was to attach a 500ml bottle to the front strap of my rucksack using a carabiner (topping it up at every break) … rather than constantly trying to reach round and grab a drink from my 1 litre bottles round the back of my pack… this worked for me and I drank a lot more - little and often - than I usually did. Definitely pack layers - we had great weather and it was warm at lower level and during the middle of the day but very cold in the tent at night and obviously during our summit night; when we left camp at 11.30 pm and returned back down to camp at 9.30 am. The temperature got way down below zero (double digits). Pack good thermal gloves! Walking poles are a must. Tents are functional and space was ok for me, my rucksack and hold-all, but appeared very tight for the couples on our trip. Another tip that I picked up from a previous trip was to compartmentalise all of my kit and pack it in travel zip-lock bags in my hold-all: this allowed me to locate and organise everything very easily in the crowded tent. You spend about 10 hours a night in the tent so pack two or three torches and plenty of spare batteries. Tents are closely pitched and snoring carries at night so I’d highly advise taking ear plugs…! Finally, I would advise that you should do enough walking that you are sufficiently aware of how you “normally” feel and react when hiking strenuously (maybe a trip or two up to 2000-3000m) - this means that you are better placed to spot when things may not be ok - dehydration/ potential symptoms of altitude sickness etc. Hiking the last 1000m of altitude up Kilimanjaro under clear night skies and standing at the summit under amazing blue skies (after 7 hours of final effort following 5 days of endurance) was the most magical physical experience of my life. If you have even half an inkling of doing it…

Kilimanjaro - The Majestic mountain ★★★★

Very good trip. KE's management faultless as always. The route itself is good for acclimatization. Veg food is available everyday, and you would appreciate what you are getting considering where you are. The hotel selection was good as well. For the route, I believe the Lemosho route is better though. On Rongai route - be prepared for the final climb. It is brutal. first 6 days are very easy (Walk in the park really). Final day starts at 1.00 am in cold and scree. It is steep and very very deman ding. By the time you reach Gillmans point, you are only hoping for it to be the summit. And then you have 2 more hours to go :-). Again, KE's management, crew selection cannot be faulted. They are easy 5*. I have given overall trip 4* only for the route compared to Lemosho .

Top of Africa! Rongai Route. ★★★★★

Fantastic journey to Top of Africa. Well organised and well led trip. I selected the Rongai trip as it was 7 days including an acclimatisation day and also because this route is generally quieter and drier than the others. It met all my expectations. 13 in group, 6 guides and 41 porters. Plenty of time to adjust to the thin air. The summit day was very challenging, midnight start and we reached summit just after 6am (5km, up 4,000ft). It was very cold that morning and I would definitely recommen d being prepared to layer up. The other days walking were all taken at a gentle pace to adjust. Being fit at the start will certainly help in the enjoyment of this trip. The Moyoni Airport Lodge at start and end is a little oasis not far from airport and a perfect place to start and end the trip. There is nothing around the lodge so when u are there, u are there. If you want to have time to explore Arusha you would need to add an extra day and use a taxi. Have done several KE trips and as always it was very well organised. From booking, to arranging transfers and the actual trip I cannot fault their services.

Kilimanjaro Rongai Route ★★★★★

Highly recommend the Rongai Route over 6 nights/7 days. We travelled in October (early) and we hardly met another group climbing until we reached Base Camp. The weather was good until the morning we began the final summit climb, when we had snow, winds and minus 16 degrees. However, this did not deter us and 10 of our 13 group reached the summit. I had never climbed at this altitude (5895 metres ) before and I only got a mild headache and a little nausea on the summit climb, however, others suff ered earlier. I do think drinking plenty of water helps as well having the extra day to acclimatise, I also took diamox. We had a team of 47 porters/guides led by Emmanuel. The whole team where fantastic and couldn’t have looked after us any better. I can highly recommend KE Travel as the whole holiday ran smoothly and all the staff from the KE office to the team leading the trek in Tanzania were helpful and professional. Can’t wait to book my next holiday.

Tough but fantastic trekking adventure
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
We had a great time on the Rongai Route. The KE local agents were fantastic. Our leader, guides and porters were friendly, hard working and very knowledgeable about the local area and the mountain. We were very well looked after throughout our stay. I would say though that you need to do some decent preparation to get fit to climb Kili. Much of the trip is straightforward but the final ascent is very challenging so if you're going to do this, do read up on what to expect so you can make the most of it. Overall an amazing trip.

Good way to get up Kilimanjaro with limited time available
★ ★ ★ ★
A well organised trip with good leaders and support crew, and a good schedule which made good use of the time available whilst giving the best chance of acclimatization to altitude. On a more negative point the tents were well worn and 'past there best'. Ground sheets seeped water and the underside of my thermarest was often wet. Also in heavy rain most tent fly sheets leaked on the seams allowing drips onto the inner tent and through to anything touching the inside. The trek notes also need rev ising. Tanzania shillings are not really required on this trip. There is nowhere on the mountain to spend any money, and any pre spending on drink/food items for the trek and post trek spending (including tips) can be made in US Dollars. A yellow fever certificate was demanded at Kilimanjaro airport immigration. Fortunately I had one, but the trek notes indicate that this is not required unless transiting through a risk area for more than 12 hours.

KE Adventure reply

Thank you Michael for your review and for your detailed feedback. We are sorry you experienced some heavy rain on your trip and that your flysheet leaked at the seams. Our tent stock for Kilimanjaro is inspected and replaced on a regular basis and each year our ground agent acquires a substantial amount of Mountain Hardware Trango 3 tents. Your group should have had access to the newest tents and we are investigating this issue following your feedback. It is possible to spend US dollars on this holiday but we recommend that you obtain some Tanzanian Shillings on arrival at the airport. This is especially useful if you are making small purchases such as snacks or drinks from the supermarket. We are unsure why you were asked to produce a Yellow Fever certificate on arrival and this is a departure from the norm. The current advice of the 'International Association for Medical Assistance to Travellers' is that "a Yellow Fever vaccination certificate is only required for travellers coming from – or who are in airport transit for more than 12 hours within – a country with risk of Yellow Fever transmission". It is good to know that the trip was well organised with good leaders and support crew and that the trekking schedule gave the best chance of acclimatisation - the secret of success on Kilimanjaro! Feedback such as yours plays a vital part in this as it enables us to chase up any problems and is much appreciated.
