Climb Mt. Kilimanjaro at Full Moon

The significance of full moon dates on Kilimanjaro cannot be understated. Witnessing the glaciers shine in the moonlight while summiting the mountain is an awe-inspiring experience that shouldn’t be missed. Due to the superior visibility provided by the bright full moon on clear nights, many climbers prefer to schedule their Kilimanjaro climb during this time. As it is a highly sought-after period for climbing, booking in advance is advised. Refer to the list of full moon dates below.

On Mount Kilimanjaro, a full moon occurs approximately every 29 days, giving you 12 opportunities each year to witness this celestial event from the summit. As most of the climb takes place during the day, a summit attempt during a full moon could make the evening ascent easier due to the bright moonlight, potentially eliminating the need for a headlamp. Planning your Kilimanjaro trek to coincide with the full moon dates listed below could enhance your experience even further, providing stunning views of Kibo from the overnight camps. Please note that while every effort is made to ensure accuracy in the moon calendars, we cannot guarantee their reliability. Users are strongly advised to confirm the details before traveling at their own risk.
