Available Kilimanjaro Climb Dates

Kilimanjaro Climb Dates

You don't need to climb on these dates shown below. We publish them only for those who wish to climb with others they don't already know. The majority of our clients choose their own dates (at no additional cost), though most request us to open up their climbs for others to join - simply so as to have extra company on the trek.

If you decide to join a group, you don't need to worry about crowds. Except by special request and agreement, our climbs are limited to 8 trekkers so as to ensure that the guide can closely monitor everyone's condition, ensure all their needs are being met, and that everyone has the chance to speak to the guide about anything that's on their mind.

Our standard maximum group size is 8 trekkers (except where augmentation is requested by private groups). 

In the table below where a πŸ”’appears in the "Places" column, this indicates that the group have requested that their climb be private. This is often the case with families, for instance. "Couples" means that only couples are invited to join.

  • πŸ‘Œ= indicates that the likelihood of the climb going ahead is highly likely
  • πŸ€”= indicates that the climb's likelihood on these dates is looking doubtful

Calculating Flight Arrival and Departure Dates

Please plan to arrive into Tanzania on the day prior to the climb start date, or earlier, and to depart on the day following the climb end date, or later. If you have a compressed schedule, however, and you are able to obtain a late evening flight from JRO, it is possible to fly home on the same day your climb ends. In this event, it's recommended to ask us to book a day room for you at KIA Lodge (5 minutes from the airport) so you can swim, shower, eat and relax and maybe even enjoy final views of Kilimanjaro before the journey home.

When considering an ascent of Kilimanjaro we frequently receive enquiries about what climbers should expect in terms of temperatures and precipitation. While this information is of course useful, it tells only a very small part of the story in terms of informing a climber how they should prepare.

Since most summit bids start from high camp at around 2300 - 0100, with exact start time usually depending on the guide's assessment of the group's pace over the preceding few days, most of the approach to the summit happens in darkness.

For some climbers this question is almost irrelevant as they will have to fit their climb into whatever dates they can clear from their busy work or family schedules, though for perhaps the majority, this is probably the first question prospective climbers should ask themselves.
