The weather and climate of Mount Kilimanjaro are strictly unpredictable due to its great height.

January and February are the warmest months, whereas April and May are the wettest months, June and July are the coolest months, and August and September are the driest months.

When you start climbing at the base of the mountain, the average temperature is around 70 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit (21 to 27 degrees Celsius). Then the temperatures will decrease as you move forward towards the peak.

At the summit, Uhuru Point, the night time temperatures vary between 20 and -20 degrees Fahrenheit (-7 to -29 degrees Celsius).

The temperature is tremendously changeable and hard to predict. Therefore, if you are planning for the climbs, make sure to be prepared for wet days and cold nights.
