Kilimanjaro Climbing Budget

Best Time to Climb Kilimanjaro.It is possible to Climb Kilimanjaro trip all-year-round. However, certain months are characterized by colder weather, more rain and potentially loads of snow on the summit.
There are two distinct trekking seasons which constitute the best time to climb Kilimanjaro. They are January-March and June-October.

  • January-March is generally colder than June-October and there is a higher probability of encountering snow on the summit. For some this might be seen as a negative, but the benefits of a January-March trek is that the slopes are often quieter at this time of the year.
  • The June-October Kilimanjaro Climbing Budget season coincides with the summer holidays in Europe and N. America and hence certain routes are often quite busy.
  • March, April and November are the wettest months on Kilimanjaro, and not ideal of trekking.
    Snow fall and cold temperatures are common during December-May.

Selecting a route is a tough choice for most. To find the best Kilimanjaro route for you, considerations should be taken for the route’s scenery, difficulty, foot traffic and its altitude acclimatization characteristics.

It is estimated that tourists climb Kilimanjaro using the routes in the following percentages: Machame (50%), Marangu (45%), Lemosho (20%), Rongai (15%), Shira (10%), Northern Circuit (5%), and Umbwe (5%).

In contrast, Tanzania jungle safari clients use Lemosho (71%), Northern (18%), Rongai (46%), Machame (76%) and Marangu (68%).

The reason for the difference in route popularity is that we favor the best Kilimanjaro routes – those with the most favorable combination of high success rates, excellent scenery, and low foot traffic.
