Kilimanjaro Foods

Food And Drinks During Kilimanjaro Climb

You will be amazed at variety, quality and quantity of the food we served on your mount Kilimanjaro, Meru climb. As we’ve already mentioned, staying hydrated and well-fed on your climb is absolutely vital, especially when conditions are such that you might not want to eat or drink as much as you should. Because so many climbers experience a loss of appetite at altitude, our head chef has developed special menu plans that are appealing, healthy, and filled with all the energy you need to make it to the summit. By default, our meals include fresh fruit and vegetables every day. You will have fresh meat for the first part of the trek and on the southern routes where it is feasible we resupply the group at Karanga Camp.
As a special reward after your summit ascent, we’ll have an “All Day English Breakfast” ready and waiting for you when you arrive back at Base Camp – just let our cook know how you like your eggs done! And before you leave the mountain, you also get to sample some of the local Tanzanian cuisine such as Njegere and Machalari. If you have special dietary requirements or are a vegetarian then just let us know when you book so that we can be sure to have a suitable menu planned.

Dining Tents & Teams

We have big mess tents for dining and socialising in - meaning that whatever the weather or temperature on Kilimnajaro there will be cover and shelter to enjoy each meal. The mess tents will be always up when you come into camp and at all lunch stops. If the weather is especially nice sometimes we will set up a dining tables and chairs outside to make the most of the views.
