Kilimanjaro Gear List

Packing for a trip can cause even the calmest person anxiety. It’s almost a fine art, knowing exactly what you need to be as comfortable as possible, without over-packing and wasting space and weight. When you prepare for a more technical trip (as compared to a general holiday) it poses an even greater challenge. Yes, even for something like a high altitude trek there are ‘nice-to-haves’, but there are of course some very important necessities, and you would be kicking yourself if you forgot to pack these.

Keep reading for what I’ll be packing for my 9 day Northern circuit trek up Mt Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, which will be followed by a 5 day safari. Tara’s list is essentially the same since we doubled up when purchasing, besides the obvious male/female items, and a few different choices in tops and bottoms.
