Hi

I want to fly to Tanzania in late March early April to climb Kilimanjaro and hiking in the area. Could not find the Forum here material on the subject and wanted to know if someone walks in there and want to tell little details about the trip itself and the trip to the region. If you have good tips also increases.

When I get back if it's happy to register their impressions from the trip.

I'd like any information on the subject, and the work and still have reserves in mid:)

Thank you!

Are you aware that mid-late March to late May is the rainy season in this area?

This season the best mountain climbing. Although not cold and no snow or anything, but you'll be on cloud and constant rain and mud up to your neck.

You should consider to go another month.

It is to climb the Summit of nearly 6000 feet in the middle of the rainy season of the equator in Africa.

Even if you tishkef any danger and of course I don't wish anything like that. So you have a 99% chance you will be constantly in cloud and see nothing.

Regardless of the dangers of it, so it's just a shame and a waste of money.

Even the lightest track still started in rainforests and wet in there get billions.

Then Alpine desert you just be cloud and rain.

Then in typhus himself to the top you will be already in snow and ice and winds. And of course ... In the cloud.

It's like climbing the Himalayas in the monsoons.

Also, this is a third world country if you shoot so you won't have trouble so who seek help at the moment.

I just don't see what it gives you try at the worst time. Isn't it better to wait for a while you can.

Climbing Kilimanjaro expedition is around $ 1000 per person, if I remember correctly. I think it will just drop $ 1000 trash.

Regardless of that. Also can be very uncomfortable and a bit dangerous to climb in such weather. Don't forget you also have heights to deal with.

Even if you build on coke to top that doesn't mean it's easy.

When climb the mountain can consult with you about some questions I have

If there are other people who would be happy to consult and climbed to ask a few questions. Especially if it was.

Thank you

Not climbed Kilimanjaro,
But I traveled in Tanzania and in Kenya, including climbing Mount Kenya, almost exactly two years ago.

April-weather annual average 250 mm in April (the most rainy month) i.e. rainy and muddy,
And probably also bad weather on the mountain (I traveled in January-February, was great).

As far as climbing Kilimanjaro is in guided groups (with bellboys, and the tarraram, don't expect a qualified climbing guides, most English-speaking guide is someone who knows well the path).
I think generally up and down the same route.
Costs (including admission to the reserve) is very, very high, when questioned (years ago)-prices start from $ 1000 per person (before tip).

If you have flexibility in the dates I'd choose another season (December-January to August are dry seasons).
If your aim is an independent type, recommend you to test climbing Mount Kenya, which you can climb.

If you want to join the Group guided climb, so you should arrange everything.
In my experience most organized groups, and very hard to find a group to join,
Especially in a time of tourism (e.g. April).
If there are any deals-search them in the travel agencies in Moshi or Arusha.

Good luck.

Thanks for the responses! I diagnose the trip to what you said, Kenya sounds good but (because you can climb only.)
