Kilimanjaro Full Moon Dates

Climb Kilimanjaro during full Moon – Summiting on or not long after a full moon is exceptionally delightful and lights up the landscape without using headlamps. However, it is also very bright for sleeping and stars are not as obvious.

To summit on a full moon, you will need to begin a 6-day trek 4 days before the full moon (3 days prior if doing a 5-day trek).
