Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania is the highest mountain in Africa and though it is relatively an easy Mountain to hike up the altitude and the changes in the terrain calls for some special climbing gear, unlike normal hiking. We have made a list of some of a few essential gear and equipment, especially that a climber needs to know about to make an informed choice on what to carry and what not to. Not all gear in our list is necessary and so it is up to a climber to decide on what he/she needs and what he/she doesn’t.
Below is an outline of some few pieces of equipment, and gear for climbing Mount Kilimanjaro.
Of course, we offer all the other gear needed like the mess tent, sleeping tent, the cookers, utensils etc.
There are other climbing gear and equipment that you may deem necessary so for your Mount Kilimanjaro Climbing and we do not object to you coming with them but you can also send us an email to ask for advice on whether you will need them or not.
Mount Kilimanjaro climbing via Machame Route requires more gear than the Marangu Route because Marangu Route involves staying in Mountain huts while Machame involves Camping.
When climbing Mount Kilimanjaro and you are not a regular Mountain climber/ trekker you may need some equipment/gear that you may end up using once in your life time and do not need them anymore. Buying some of them may seem expensive than hiring them for one time use.
