How Long Does it Take to Climb Mount Kilimanjaro?

Don’t miss the experience of a lifetime, summiting Mount Kilimanjaro during a full moon, seeing the glaciers glittering in the moonlight… simply stunning! Many climbers choose the full moon to coincide with their Kilimanjaro climb as when there are clear skies the bright full moon gives them enhanced visibility. It is a very popular time to climb and gets booked up early, see below for full moon dates.

The full moon on Kilimanjaro occurs about every 29 days, so you have 12 times in a year to witness the full moon. That’s one opportunity every month to witness this beautiful celestial event from the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro.

The majority of a Kilimanjaro climb takes place during the day and it is only the summit attempt that starts before midnight in order to reach the summit at sunrise. A summit attempt done during a full moon could make the evening climb easier, since 8 might not need to switch on your head lamp in the bright moonlight.

Planning a trek up Mt. Kilimanjaro to coincide with the full moon dates detailed below, could further enhance the whole experience, as the bright moonlight would provide spectacular views of Kibo from most of the overnight camps.
