The climate in Kilimanjaro is very changeable, so you will need to prepare for all types of weather. The mountain can see 4 seasons in one day, so our kit list reflects both kit for warmer and cooler temperatures. It might be cooler early-morning, but very hot after a few hours of trekking - so the best way to deal with this is by taking lots of layers. Each day, your experienced UK Mountain Leader will be able to recommend which layers to wear each day too so you're prepared for the day ahead.
Every day, you will trek with your day bag, which we recommend to be 30 - 35 litres. You will carry your bare essentials to conserve as much energy as possible for trekking. An example of the items you will carry each day, will be 2-3 litres of water (either platypus/waterbottles), full waterproofs, trekking poles (if applicable), an extra layer, suncream, snacks, tissues/toilet paper, camera, hand santiser and perhaps hat/gloves as you climb higher. The rest of your kit in your main duffle bag will be transferred from camp to camp by your team of porters.
