The weather on Kilimanjaro is quite diverse. The climb starts through a wide belt of wet tropical forest (70s-80s), and then goes through zones with generally decreasing temperatures and rainfall to the summit where there is permanent ice and below-freezing temperatures. Our trips avoid the rainy season, which runs March to May.
