When is the Best Time to Climb Kilimanjaro?
Mount Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain in Tanzania, the highest mountain in Africa, and the highest free-standing mountain in the world at 5,895 metres or 19,341 feet above sea level (the Uhuru Peak/Kibo Peak).
Due to Mount Kilimanjaro's proximity to the equator, this region does not experience the extremes of winter and summer weather, but rather dry and wet seasons. Most climbers avoid climbing Kilimanjaro during the two rainy seasons each year with main two reasons.
The primary issue is safety, as the risks associated with climbing increase significantly when the weather is foul. The effects of rain, mud, snow, ice and cold can be very strenuous on the body. Correspondingly, your chance of a successful summit also increases significantly with nice weather. Of course, the mountain gets more traffic during these periods as well.
Another reason for this is that climbing in the rain is simply less enjoyable for most people and means missing out on many beautiful views and photographic opportunities.

It is possible to climb Kilimanjaro year round. January, February, and September are considered to be the best months in terms of weather, and correspondingly are the busiest months. From January through mid-March are the warmest months, with clear skies in the mornings and evenings. During the day, clouds may appear along with brief showers. From the end of March to early June is the long rainy season. Visibility may be low due to heavy clouds, but the crowds are gone. June, July, and August are good months, but it is colder. Following September and October, the short rainy season lasts from November through the beginning of December, where afternoon rains are common, but skies are clear in mornings and evenings.
Some climbers prefer to summit during a full moon.
A practical reason for climbing at these times (full moon) is that a bright moon along with a clear sky will improve your visibility throughout your climb, and most importantly, during the summit attempt. For this reason alone, some climbers schedule their trek to coincide with this celestial event, occuring once a month.To summit during a full moon, a 7-day climb should start 5 days prior to the full moon date.
