Alternatively, if you would prefer to make the ascent in warmer conditions then visit in June to October. This however, is also the busiest time as it coincides with the summer holiday period. Although December is very cold on the summit and can be quite wet, it is also becoming a popular time to visit.

April, May and November are not ideal for trekking as they are the wettest months. If however you want to find a cheap flight to Kilimanjaro and lower rates for tours and accommodation, you can still attempt the journey during these months.

City overview

On the north eastern edge of Tanzania lies an area of natural beauty that draws thousands of tourists looking for a once in a lifetime challenge. The Kilimanjaro region incorporates the Kilimanjaro National Park, a World Heritage Site and protected game reserve, where visitors can get close to various wildlife, including cape buffalo, blue monkeys, elephants and leopards.

Although there are many reasons to visit this incredible region, thousands of tourists take flights to Kilimanjaro for one single reason: to make the seven day trek up the world’s highest volcano. Mount Kilimanjaro stands proud above the surrounding forest, wreathed in cloud and can be tackled via several different routes that ascend to the summit. At a height of 19,340 ft (5,895 m), it is not a challenge to be taken lightly, but if you are well prepared and accompanied by a professional licensed tour guide, it is a truly remarkable experience.

If you don’t want to spend a week on the mountain, there are plenty of other activities that are worth the flight to Kilimanjaro. On the mountain’s lower slopes sits the region’s capital Moshi, a place where most people begin their exploration of the area. You can book with a local tour company to go on safari by horse, camel or mountain bike and see some of the local wildlife in their natural habitat. It’s also a fantastic opportunity to spend time in a village inhabited by African indigenous people, like the Maasi tribe, to learn about their customs, handicrafts and way of life. You can even spend a night in a typical tribal house built using the traditional woven technique.

The Kilimanjaro region offers experiences that are impossible to forget, whether you choose to take the mountain challenge or prefer to keep your feet firmly on the valley floor, this is a truly remarkable and memorable place.

Getting around Kilimanjaro

Getting from the Airport to the City

Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO) is situated a 45-minute drive west of Moshi. The cheapest way to transfer from the airport is by local bus. There are also taxis available, but you should negotiate a price with the driver before starting your journey.  There are also shuttle buses that run between the airport and the local towns.
