All our climbers will sleep in four-season mountain tents during the trek. These tents are checked before and after each climb to maintain good quality. They are sturdy, waterproof and roomy, according to the needs of climbing Kilimanjaro. We use tents for 4 people and accommodate 2 hikers in 1 tent, but we can arrange private tents according to your needs as additional costs.
Tanzania Horizon Safaris is using sleeping bags that are made for temperature up to -30 degrees Celsius and is providing sleeping mattresses for all climbs. For those who wish to add some additional comfort to your climb, we offer softer sleeping mats and inflatable camping pillows.
Please contact us for further information and check our Gear List.
All our tents will accommodate you, your Daypack and your Duffel Bag so that you will keep all your personal belongings with you at night. Inside the tents, we can provide small lamps in addition to your headlamps on request. In front of your sleeping room there is a small space that can be covered to wash yourself and also to place your shoes and Duffel Bag at night.
Four season sleeping bags are available for rent on location in Moshi Town, Tanzania. Our warm, winter synthetic sleeping bags are specified for the needs of high altitude climbing. They are soft and can be closed from the inside to eliminate cold spots. The nylon shell is waterresistant from the outside and durable while the polyester lining from the inside keeps away moisture.
Please make sure that you always cover yourself well at night as feeling cold will decrease your success of climbing Kilimanjaro. This is extremely important as temperatures will drop significantly at night, especially at high altitude and there is nothing more dangerous than waking up at night because of feeling cold.
We recommend wearing a winter hat or a balaclava while sleeping to keep warm. In any case, please consult your guide for any advice in case you are feeling cold. On request you can upgrade your sleeping mattress for more comfort.
