Kilimanjaro Weather

Kilimanjaro Weather

Dry season (July - October/ January - March)

The weather is rather predictable and less changeable. The precipitation is rare, and the sky is clear, making these months ideal for climbing Mount Kilimanjaro. The temperature in the summit area fluctuates between -5 C and -10 C. The summit area is not covered with snow, and extra equipment is not necessary. Overall, dry season climbing is less challenging and more comfortable.

Rain season

It is possible to climb Mt Kilimanjaro all year round, and though the rain season requires some extra efforts, there are two advantages: the routes are less crowded, and Uhuru Peak is majestically covered snow, making the landscapes dreamlike. You will need to take extra sets of thermal underwear, T-shirts and socks. Rainfalls (and snowfalls in the higher camps) are likely to happen, and the days are windy and humid. The summit area is covered with snow and ice, making it necessary to take the gaiters and microspikes. In general, rain season climbing is more challenging, but the experiences are unique.
