There are few things quite as spectacular as seeing the summit of Kilimanjaro on a full moon night. Therefore you may wish to consider planning your summit attempt to coincide with one of the full moon dates which we have listed below.

On a clear night, the full moon will make your climb all that more special - starting with some magnificent night views of Kibo from your overnight camp followed later when you will take in the captivating beauty of the glaciers gleaming in the moonlight. Because it is so bright, you wonít even need to turn on your headlamp - this makes your final ascent that much easier and you will also have the added advantage of the most stunning views all the way up.

We canít guarantee the weather, so please be aware that full moon nights are not immune from adverse weather conditions and cloud cover - these conditions will take away all the benefits of a full moon climb as mentioned above.
