The contents of this section have been taken directly from chapters of our Mount Kilimanjaro trekking guide book, which have been abridged and edited to fit the website. The guide book does, of course, go into much more detail, including reviews of all the major Kilimanjaro trek agencies, how to make it cheaper etc etc.
But hopefully there is enough information on this website to point you in the right direction and get you started on your journey to climbing Mount Kilimanjaro.
If you’re unsure whether Kilimanjaro is for you, then a great place to start is our list of reasons why you should attempt to climb Africa’ Highest Mountain; while the next page lists some reasons why perhaps climbing it is not such a good idea after all.
Once you’ve decided that you do want to give it a go, then the best page to look at first is the Kili Countdown -a step-by-step timeline to help you plan your preparations.
Then, to help you with every step of your preparation, do look at the rest of the pages in this section:
