Organizing a Kilimanjaro hike means reading up upon and getting your head around a lot of information. I would recommend to proceed in the following step-by-step sequence:
- Why – is Kilimanjaro for you, will you be able to truly enjoy it?
- Who with – do you want to organize a private hike or join a group tour?
- When – which are the best months?
- How long – what can you afford versus what is recommendable?
- Which route – join the masses or go off into the wild?
- Which operator – what are the criteria to watch out for?
