Trekking Equipment

When climbing Mt Kilimanjaro on the Marangu route and during the Mt Meru trekking, you will stay in mountain huts which are similar in style to Scandinavian wooden huts. Mattresses and electric lights are available. All other routes are camping routes and overnight accommodation will be in 2-man-tents equipped with sleeping mats. All meals will be served in a larger mess tent and camping tables and chairs are supplied by us.

On private trekking tours along the camping routes, we carry a chemical toilet with a toilet tent. The toilet situation on Kilimanjaro has been the biggest concern for mountaineers and this undertaking will definitely be a big relief for all private trekking guests.

Our equipment has to withstand the onslaught of exposure to the elements: extreme temperatures, snow and ice storms and powerful sunlight. Good quality materials and regular maintenance are vital for continued safety and durability and all equipment is replaced and updated periodically.

We only use the best products and brands such as VauDe and Nordisk and even modify our equipment to meet our clients’ needs. The cooking utensils, cutlery and crockery are made of strong materials to resist the tough requirements. The sleeping mats and the camping gear are made of sturdy but light materials to reduce weight for the porters.
