The driest month to climb Kilimanjaro is September. However, it is also one of the coldest and busiest. Because Kilimanjaro is such a large mountain, it has its own weather pattern and it often rains on Kilimanjaro when it is not raining elsewhere. You should prepare for rain and have your rain gear with you at all times while on the mountain. For more information please check out Itinerarys.
The best times to climb this peek are from June to February, with occasional rain in November. The best view of Kilimanjaro, the summit and most places in Arusha National Park can be seen during the month of December through to February.
Whether it’s summer, autumn or the dead of African winter, Mt. Oldoinyo Lengai is perfect all year-round. To arrange a trip please check out our Root Tales Safari in Itinerary.
