Climb Kilimanjaro – Full Moon Dates 2014

Climbing Kilimanjaro is a wonderful experience at any time of the year, but if you would like to make your way to the ‘Roof of Africa’ under a full moon, you need to plan your climb to coordinate with Kilimanjaro’s Full Moon dates for 2014.

Summiting in the moonlight is a magical experience, with glittering glaciers and twinkling stars all around, and as the full moon provides enough light to see the path ahead, you can turn off your headlamp (and the uncomfortable glare that goes with it!), and appreciate the beauty of the night sky.

To climb Kilimanjaro under a full moon in 2014, you should plan your climb to start around these dates:

15th January 2014

14th February 2014

16th March 2014

15th April 2014 – Lunar Eclipse

14th May 2014

12th June 2014

12th July 2014

10th August 2014

8th September 2014

8th October 2014 – Lunar Eclipse

6th November 2014

6th December 2014

Depending on the route you choose, Machame, Marangu, Lemosho, Rongai, or Umbwe, and the length of your Kilimanjaro climb (6-9 days), you will need to start your trek 3-6 days ahead of the New Moon to ensure you summit on the evening of Africa’s newest moon.
