Climbing Kilimanjaro

Can I climb Mount KilimanjaroCan I climb Mount Kilimanjaro?

The simple answer is: YES, YOU CAN! 

Even though climbing Kilimanjaro is a big challenge, it is very possible for you to successfully climb Uhuru Peak!

Climbing Kilimanjaro is not a technical climb. With the right preparation, equipment, mindset and determination, you can make your dream come true and embrace the challenge. It can be seen as a goal to challenge yourself and proof yourself that you can do it. Of course it helps if you are in a good shape and physical condition – it will also make the hike more enjoyable for you. You can also see it as a big goal that requires a good preparation, healthy lifestyle and right mental preparation. We always recommend to start at least 3 month prior to your hike to go hiking frequently, to get used to your hiking boots and simply to be active. You don’t have to be a professional hiker or mountain runner to successfully climb Kilimanjaro. Going hiking, living healthy, paying attention to your diet and stop smoking are some good examples how Kilimanjaro can improve your life by setting it as your goal that you want to achieve.
