Beat the altitude sickness; Sleep tight in comfy Kilimanjaro tents.
When planning for the Kilimanjaro Trek, tourists often overlook the sleeping part. Sleeping is the most important aspect of your climb. Not only it is essential for rest and to regain strength but also it is a vital role in acclimatization. Not to mention a well-rested body and mind are much more likely to avoid altitude sickness. You just have to have the right attitude and of course the right equipment. Our Kilimanjaro Guide will provide you with the best equipment along with insightful stories during camping to help you sleep.
Where to sleep during the Kilimanjaro climb?
Your sleeping arrangements on Mount Kilimanjaro depend on your hiking routes as well as Kilimanjaro Climbing Packages. But basically, you will be sleeping in either a mountain hut or tainted camps. Don’t stress about carrying your gears from camp to camp. Because our Kilimanjaro Porters carry all of the camping equipment and also set up your camps for you.
We use Mountain Hardwear Trango 3, to ensure you stay warm, dry, and comfortable on your Kilimanjaro Climb. They are designed to sleep three people, but we only ever sleep 2 in a tent, to ensure you have plenty of space for you and your gear.
Best Kilimanjaro camping options on each route
Mostly, you will be sleeping in tented camps. Except on the Marangu route, where we provide only hut accommodation. As per the rest of the seven, Kilimanjaro routes, you’d have to camp. Our Kilimanjaro tour operator will organize your sleeping tent and mattress.
As for Marangu Route, we offer shared hut accommodation with dormitory-style bunk beds. Meaning you'll have a firm roof. On other Kilimanjaro Routes, we provide luxurious, high-quality, and more comfortable Kilimanjaro Tents than the Marangu Huts.
On the Northern Circuit, Grand Traverse, or Rongai Route you'll get to enjoy more privacy, quiet campsites, and unspoiled wilderness.
We at Jerry Tanzania tours provide our climbers with high-grade domed tents that are cozy, comfortable as well as hygienic. Tented camps are the more fun option because it gives you a chance to meet and bond with your fellow climbers.
These huts are provided by Kilimanjaro National Park. Mountain huts are wooden, A-frame structures. Even though there are beds with mattresses, we advise you to bring your own sleeping bag and pillow. These huts were built along the Marangu route.
Range of accommodations on Kilimanjaro climb
We offer quality tents ranging from cheap locally produced to high-quality imported winter mountaineering tents (mid-range offers) or luxurious walk-in size tents with proper frame beds (VIP offers). Jerry Tanzania tours also offer Private Toilet Tents On Kilimanjaro as an added facility.

Standard tents are usually shared. These Standard tour tents will be a little smaller and don’t accommodate costs. So you will need a sleeping bag. A standard tent will approximately be 48 square feet.
1 or 2 people will share a 3-4 person Kilimanjaro Tents. So you will have plenty of space for yourself and your gear. But a word of caution, high-grade tents are designed to cope with extreme conditions and don’t allow much room to stand up and walk around in your Kilimanjaro Tents.
The mid-range Kilimanjaro Tents are roomy 61 square feet. We provide a 27% increase in space. Here we will avail of mess dining tents with tables and chairs also our private toilet tents have become very popular.
