Climate Conditions

The climate is tropical and coastal areas are hot and humid, where the rainy season lasts from March to June. The central plateau is dry and arid, while the north western highlands are cool and temperate and the rainy season here lasts from November to December and February to May.
Kilimanjaro has snow year round on its upper peaks. On all our tours, it's best to bring warm clothing - raincoat, warm hat, socks etc. - as across Africa wet/dry and hot/cool climatic periods change invariably.
