Booking Kili Treks - How far in advance?
Generally these trips do get booked up very quickly so the sooner the better. Having said that, you won't be wasting your time if you do some decent research first as to which company to climb with. I took 2 months to decide and that was probably one of the best decisions I made regarding the trip. I went with Adventure Alternative (winner of the Virgin Responsible Tourism Award 2009) and I think I speak on behalf of the group I climbed with that our success in getting to the top was largely down to the AA team. http://www.adventurealternative.com/Kil ...

I booke 6 months before the trip and I was one of the last to sign up in time so get in there fast!
You should give yourself at least 6 months to get in some decent training. Booking this far in advance will help you tailor your training programme and depending on whether you need to buy new kit, it will also give you time to test drive all your gear before getting to Kili. You don't want to find out your kit isn't up to scratch when you get there! Well advance booking will also give you time to advertise your climb if you're looking to recruit some climbing mates. That's what I did and we've stayed good friends ever since!
All the best!
