Kilimanjaro Foods

When people think about backpacking and camping at Kilimanjaro, it’s the food that they normally think of. Kilimanjaro Food usually involves unappetizing dry food packages and unhealthy powdered mixes. On Mount Kilimanjaro, this could not be farther from reality. Supplying your body with continuous calories is an important factor in successfully climbing Kilimanjaro. While an average person on a typical workday burns around 2,500 calories, a hiker on Kilimanjaro can burn 6,000 to 8,000 calories a day!

To keep your body well fuelled, you need to eat. You will be astounded at the assortment, quality, and amount of the food we serve to you while you are on your Mount Kilimanjaro climb. As you will be traveling for between 6-9 hours every day, you'll be consuming a lot of calories - and as you are at height – you’ll be significantly consuming more calories.

We additionally value giving quality food at every dinner. Your body needs fuel for your Kilimanjaro climb. And that’s why you will be given a full dinner, three times each day, giving only the best accessible. We have sprinters coming up the mountain with new food all through the outing so you are given quality nutritious dinners all through the whole excursion all over the mountain.
