Here's how to prepare for the next Kilimanjaro climb

Here's how to prepare for the next Kilimanjaro climb, if you are looking at doing something that is both adventurous, and will benefit the community.

After postponing two previous climbs, and canceling the September 2017 climb, I am planning to join again Tanzania Development Support to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro in January 2018 to raise funds for its education program at Nyegina Secondary School in Mara region.

You can join the climb to support TDS's project or just to enjoy reaching the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro. There are few more exhilarating experiences like reaching the summit.

Here's how:

  • get in touch with me by email to register your name so that I can provide you regular updates on the climb
  • start your training, at least four months before the climb in January (early September, the latest)
  • cycling, hiking, jogging are some of the exercises that are suitable
  • when you have committed to join the climb, sign up on this Facebook events page, on my Facebook page dedicated to my annual Kilimanjaro climbs
A few points to remember before commencing the climb from Londorossi Gate
In the coming months, I will share on this blog suggestions on the combination of upper body, lower body, and aerobic exercises that will prepare you reach the highest point on the African continent with ease.

Climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro is not easy, but most people can reach the summit with the right preparations.


  1. Amazing Blog! This is really an interesting and joyful blog. I really liked the way of describing best time to climb Kilimanjaro. A common person can easily understand when they plan to trip to climb Kilimanjaro. I had gone to Kilimanjaro for a tour of two days with my friends by the help of Tanzania Joy Tours, which is best Travel Agency in Tanzania. Thank you very much for giving such kind of information with us.
