Kilimanjaro Scheduled Climb Dates

Please note: We start climbs each and every day of the year. You may choose any date that suits your schedule.

However, if you would like to join an existing group, then it will be possible to join any of our existing climbs as mentioned below. The joining of an existing group will offer a social benefit, but no financial benefit on all packages.

Please note if you book a standard package, can you not join an existing climbers package climb, even if it is the same route. If you book a standard package, can you only join a standard package climb, if you book a climbers package, can you only join a climbers package climb.

We do try to update the list on a regular basis, but before you book your flights and plan your trip, please contact us to confirm that space is still available for the preferred climb. Availability to join an existing group is subject to change.

Our climb starting dates are flexible and we can start a climb on any day you want, subject to availability.

If none of the dates below fit according to your planned dates, then please contact us as we can start a new climb according to your requested dates.

Full moon summit dates

Summiting Mt. Kilimanjaro on a cloudless evening is without a doubt an unforgettable experience. Now imagine seeing the glaciers glitter in the moonlight of a full moon – absolutely stunning.

The majority of a Kilimanjaro climb takes place during the day and it is only the summit attempt that starts before midnight in order to reach the summit at sunrise. A summit attempt done during a full moon could make the evening climb easier, since you might not need to switch on your head lamp in the bright moonlight.

Planning a trek up Mt. Kilimanjaro to coincide with the full moon dates detailed below, could further enhance the whole experience, as the bright moonlight would provide spectacular views of Kibo from most of the overnight camps.
