  1. Mount Kilimanjaro is a non-technical climb, there’s no need to worry about harnesses, ropes, needed for climbing Mount Kilimanjaro is listed below.

    We ask you to consider each item carefully before deciding you don’t want to bring it. Most of the items are essential, some are marked as optional. Some of the gear can be expensive to go out and buy so we run a very reasonable equipment hire service in Moshi.

    You are responsible for bringing personal gear and equipment while communal equipment (tents, food, cooking items, etc.) is provided. Get in touch with our office if you want a list of what gear can be hired along with the costs carbines, ascendance and a plethora of other climbing gear.

    You’ll need lots of warm clothes, a good set of waterproofs, decent hiking boots and some pieces of equipment.
