Kilimanjaro FAQs

How do I get to Mount Kilimanjaro?

Tanzania has three major international airports: Dar es Salaam (DAR), Zanzibar (ZNZ) and Kilimanjaro Airport (JRO). The latter is the most convenient for Kilimanjaro, sitting only 42 km away from the mountain town of Moshi and 50 km from Arusha.

How many days ahead of the trip should I arrive?

We recommend arriving one day early. This will give you time to relax, meet your fellow travellers and get a proper briefing before the climb starts.

Do I need a visa to travel to Tanzania?

You will need a passport that is valid for at least six more months as well as a flight card which you will receive on the plane. Finally, you need a Tanzanian visa. US, Canadian, British and most European citizens can simply obtain their visas upon arrival at the airport.

What vaccinations do I need?

There are no specific vaccine requirements for entry into Tanzania. However, be aware that the Government of Tanzania requires proof of yellow fever vaccination upon arrival if you are travelling from a country with a risk of yellow fever.

What is the best Kilimanjaro climb routes?

There are 7 different Kilimanjaro routes up the mountain. We recommend the Lemosho and Machame routes. These two routes offer the best balance of a high success rate, beautiful scenery, and smaller crowds.

How hard is it to climb Kilimanjaro?

Kilimanjaro requires no technical climbing experience and any moderately fit person can summit the mountain. However, for most people, it will be one of the most difficult things they ever do in their lives.
