There are many things to consider when booking your Kilimanjaro Expedition, and choosing the right route for your trip to the Roof of Africa is just the start of the process. You then need to find a reputable company to book with, train for your expedition so that you are able to make it to the summit, and perhaps most importantly of all, you need to decide what to pack!
Climbing Kilimanjaro is not something that should be taken lightly, and despite what some travel websites will have you believe, it is most definitely not a walk in the park! You need to train hard, prepare yourself both mentally and physically, and last but not least, you need to practice your dance moves…!
You see, climbing Kilimanjaro is a joyous occasion, and when it is done correctly, it involves lots of singing and dancing! You will need to learn one or two local songs (don’t worry, your Mountain Guides and crew will teach you), and you will need let your inhibitions go, but that’s all part of the experience.
Dancing is part of daily life of Africa’s highest mountain, and if you book your expedition with a KPAP (Kilimanjaro Porters Assistance Project) registered company, you can expect to celebrate every achievement, no matter how insignificant it may seem at the time, with your all-singing, all-dancing crew!
