Due to its elevation, Kilimanjaro contains 5 sub-climates from base to peak--bushland, rain forest, heath, alpine desert, and arctic. Both precipitation and temperature vary greatly between each zone. Expect to hike from flat, dry plains through rain forest and semi-alpine environments before reaching the rocky, snow capped summit.
Because Kilimanjaro is located near the equator, the temperature remains fairly constant throughout the year. Highs at the base of the mountains are in the upper 70s and lows in lower 60s. As you increase in altitude on the mountain temperatures drop significantly and the evenings can drop well below freezing and into single digits higher up on the mountain.
The rainy season peaks in April, and late March and early May can be quite wet as well. Bringing warm clothes and good rain gear will keep you prepared for any weather you may encounter.
