If you are planning to climb Kilimanjaro one of the key decisions you will need to make is when to go. Deciding the best time of year to climb Kilimanjaro comes down to looking at three things. Of course the weather is the most important consideration. Kilimanjaro is near the Equator and has no hot and cold season but it does have two rainy seasons: the long rainy season in April and May and the short rainy season in mid November to December. If you climb in these months there is likely to be some rain every day but often in short sharp downpours. The driest period is June to October when there is almost invariably warm clear weather.
The second factor to take into account is how busy the mountain will be. Inevitably more want to climb in June to October and as a result you can find that the routes are busy. To minimize this problem during these months we generally start our treks everyday and make sure we get started early every day to get ahead of most people.
Finally you should look at the cost of your flights. These vary quite a bit, both during the year and depending on the day of the week. And of course climbing Kilimanjaro in the full moon is magical any time of year.
JANUARY AND MARCH: Dry and quiet
JUNE TO OCTOBER: Warm and busy
APRIL AND MAY: Wet but quite
NOVEMBER AND DECEMBER: Short rain but colder
ALL YEAR ROUND: Full Moon
Invariably the first thing people ask us when they start to plan their trip is "which is the best route to climb Kilimanjaro". While the choice is ultimately personal these are the routes we recommend For the best chance of success All the statistics from the Park Authority confirm that the Machame route has the best success rate largely because it offers great acclimatisation.
For great scenery The Lemosho route provides the best diversity of views with spectacular panorama in all directions as you ascend and cross the Shira plateau.
For a quiet trail The Rongai route approaching from the North is the quietest route but it is a long drive to the start and the success rate is lower as it offers less natural acclimatisation.
For a real challenge If you are really fit and confident about acclimatising then climbing Kilimanjaro and staying in Crater camp is a fantastic option. It is always quiet and the views at sunset and dawn are spectacular.
