FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
The Help Center
BEST TIME TO CLIMB KILIMANJARO?
In fact, there is no such thing. Any time of the year is beautiful in its own way, you just need to be ready to climb in terms of clothing and equipment.
There are 2 seasons in Kilimanjaro:
- The dry season. These are periods from mid-December to April and from June to November. At this time, on the mountain, mostly warm, dry weather;
- Rain season. These are periods from November to mid-December and also from April to mid-May. At this time, it often rains on the mountain (Closer to the top snow)
WHAT IS THE TEMPERATURE ON THE MOUNTAIN?
It is important to understand here that mountains, wherever they are geographically located (Africa, Caucasus, Nepal) are a place with a high frequency of weather changes. Right now you can go in shorts and enjoy excellent calm weather, and in a few minutes it may rain / hail / snow / strong wind.
The temperature may range from 30 C to -30 . Note that every elevation of 100 meters, the average temperature is reduced by 1 degree. Based on this, you need to prepare for the winter climbing conditions i.e. take along a down jacket, hat, balaclava, thermal underwear, etc. (A detailed list of things can be found in the section “Paking List") If it is warm, you can always take off your warm clothes.
IS IT SAFE IN TANZANIA?
Tanzania is positioning itself as a tourist country and the authorities are actively fighting cases of fraud, crime, especially when it comes to tourists.
In the daytime, moving around the country is absolutely safe. With the onset of night, we do not recommend solitary movement through dark streets and alleys. At this time, it is better to use a taxi.
- Do not keep all the money in one place;
- Do not stick cameras, telephones, etc. from the windows of cars. There may be cases of theft of things from a passing motorcycle;
- Do not leave personal items unattended;
- Do not use the services of "helpers" (people who volunteer to carry out to the right place, find the right store, etc.)
