    Survivor guide: Visiting Mount Kilimanjaro

    At 5,895 metres tall and 19,340 feet above sea level, Mount Kilimanjaro is Africa’s highest peak, and the tallest freestanding mountain in the world. Many tourists travel to northern Tanzania to see this world famous landmark and attempt to reach the summit.

    However, many forget that despite being a beautiful landmark, Mount Kilimanjaro can be very dangerous. If the correct precautions are not taken then slips, trips, and falls could occur whilst ascending or descending the mountain.

    How can I prevent an accident whilst climbing Mount Kilimanjaro?

    • Pay attention to the season and weather climate.

    Due to its height, Kilimanjaro is said to make its own weather system. The weather is very unpredictable so be prepared for sun, rain and potentially freezing temperatures at night.

    • Ensure you are at the correct fitness level

    You will need to walk for a long time at a slow pace, so stamina is key!

    • Stop altitude sickness

    Drinking plenty of fluids to keep the body hydrated, and keeping warm, are two ways of preventing altitude sickness, which may result in a fall and therefore personal injury during your climb.

    • Choose the correct route

    There are several different options of routes to take you to the summit of Mt.Kilimanjaro. Choosing a route carefully could not only reduce your risk of getting altitude sickness, but also could limit your chance of suffering from a nasty slip, trip, or fall.

    The varying climate of the mountain, from tropical rain forest to moor lands, to an icy region at the summit mean that there are very different landscapes to trek through; all of which could cause a fall.
