Wet Season?

Some climbers choose their Kilimanjaro dates during the wet season, for the lowest number of climbers on Kili, and the most picturesque, snow-capped summit photos.

Clear Weather

The clearest weather on Kilimanjaro most usually occurs when crowds are at their biggest. However, TK has some unique crowd-avoiding routes if your chosen Kilimanjaro dates are in the busy season.

When to Climb

For those wanting the best photo opportunities, choosing when to climb is an important consideration.

Kilimanjaro Dates

We climb Kilimanjaro every day of the year and can schedule a climb with just 48 hours’ notice for any booking group size. However, many climbers – particularly those travelling solo – prefer to join others who have already booked. It is for this reason that we publish our pre-scheduled Kilimanjaro dates below.

Availability of Our Kilimanjaro Climbs

The following tables show the available number of places on each climb. If there’s no availability on the date or route on which you wish to climb, please just tell us and we’ll schedule a new climb just for you and your group, regardless of how many of you there are. Once this is arranged, you may choose to keep your climb private or open it to others to join. Except in the case of solo climbers, this does not affect the price per person of your climb.

Do I have to climb on the Kilimanjaro dates shown above?

Absolutely not! We can arrange a climb for you on any day of the year, whatever your group size. Just let us know when you want to climb and we’ll arrange everything.

If the dates above are not convenient for you please propose your own dates and we will arrange a climb specifically to suit you. We are able to organise a climb for you on any day of the year, and there is no minimum group size for this option.

Pre-scheduled Dates for Kilimanjaro and Mount Meru

Once you have secured your climb by paying the non-refundable deposit, we will subsequently publish your chosen dates for others to join, unless you specifically request to comprise your own private party.

While cost is determined by the number of fellow climbers (including yourself) on behalf of which you are booking, and not necessarily the total number of climbers that you will finally climb with (unless your request a private party climb), the only exception to this rule is in the case of single booking climbers, who are encouraged to join a group if possible as we are able to invoice single booking climbers who join pre-scheduled climbs on the basis of a 2-persons booking, regardless of how many other climbers are already booked onto that climb. In such cases they will therefore avoid the relatively high costs associated with a solo climb.

Nothing Suits You? – Choose Your Own Climb Dates

Choosing your own dates does not affect price and is a very usual request. This list is regularly updated so please re-visit this page often if you’re hoping for a specific date to join and do not necessarily wish to open your own climb dates.

As eight climbers is our recommended maximum group size, except by special arrangement, the number of climbers who are already booked onto any of the below climbs is obtained by subtracting the number of places still available, from 8.

When to Fly In & Out

Your inward flight should arrive the day before the date in the left column or earlier, and your outward flight should depart the day after the date in the second column or later. Many climbers will add a safari with us after their climb. Please bear this in mind when planning your flights.  The route number refers to the number of days spent on the mountain and does not include days spent in Arusha.

What does 'Private Climb' mean?

‘Private Climb’ means that a group or an agent has requested a climb that they have asked to remain closed to new, external members. However, if you are planning on climbing on these dates just let us know and we’ll be delighted to build a climb alongside. TK have virtually unlimited staffing and logistical resources and can accommodate any number of climbs on any date on any route.

Kilimanjaro Full Moon Climbs

Many climbers approach us with an interest in climbing Kilimanjaro on dates that will allow them to summit Kilimanjaro on a night when there is a full moon. With this in mind, we have prepared the following table to make it easier to request dates from us that will fit your expectations. The following Kilimanjaro dates all allow climbers to summit on a full moon.
