Mount Kilimanjaro is a challenging climb and it's important to wear the right clothing to stay comfortable and safe during the journey. Here are some suggestions on what to wear on a Mount Kilimanjaro safari:

  1. Base layers: It's important to wear moisture-wicking base layers to keep your body dry and comfortable. Choose lightweight and breathable fabrics like merino wool or synthetic materials.

  2. Mid-layers: Mid-layers will help keep you warm during colder temperatures. Fleece jackets and down vests are great options.

  3. Outerwear: A waterproof and windproof jacket and pants are essential to protect you from the elements. Look for jackets with breathable materials to avoid sweating.

  4. Headgear: A warm hat that covers your ears and a buff or scarf to protect your neck and face from wind and sun are important to bring.

  5. Gloves: You'll need a good pair of gloves to keep your hands warm during cold temperatures.

  6. Footwear: Proper hiking boots that are broken in and comfort are crucial. They should provide ankle support and have a sturdy sole for traction.

  7. Socks: Bring multiple pairs of moisture-wicking socks to keep your feet dry and prevent blisters.

It's important to note that the weather on Kilimanjaro can change rapidly, so it's a good idea to layer up and be prepared for any conditions you may encounter. Don't forget to pack a daypack for carrying water, snacks, and other essentials.
