Hi there

One of my friends is thinking of travlling from ireland to Tanzania to Climb Mt Kilimanjaro with her boyfriend in Mid July. Firstly she is worried if it is wise, hopefully they will egg each other on and not squabble!

Is this a good time of year to climb? What route do they take? How many days do they need? or they need to book in advance for accommodation/guide or just arrive at the bottom? How much training do they need tgo do beforehand (they are both mid twenties and fairly fit though they both have desk jobs!). So many questions! Any advice would be reeeeeeeeeeally appreciated!

I hope you have given your friends all the advice you just posted about Kili on your other thread. Sounds like you already know quite a bit and could help them out. Have you suggested they sign up with BnA so they can see answers?

I climbed Kili last February and we had good weather/ clear views as it was just before the rainy season starts. I would highly recommend checking out Adventure Alternative's website which has loads of safety information,useful facts and details of kit etc. that will be needed. http://www.adventurealternative.com/Kil ...
