Kilimanjaro Full Moon Dates

Kilimanjaro full moon dates for 2024. Summiting Mt. Kilimanjaro on a cloudless evening is without a doubt an unforgettable experience. Now imagine seeing the glaciers glitter in the moonlight of a full moon – absolutely stunning.

The majority of a Kilimanjaro walk takes place during the day, it is only the summit attempt starting at midnight. The goal of starting the summit attempt at midnight is to reach the summit by sunrise. A summit attempt done during a full moon could make the summit attempt easier. Because of the bright moonlight, you might not need to switch on your head lamp.

Planning a trek up Kilimanjaro to coincide with the full moon dates will further enhance the whole experience. The bright moonlight would provide spectacular views of Kibo from most of the overnight camps. The full moon can also offer your amazing photo opportunities.

It is possible to arrange a Kilimanjaro full moon hikes on any of the Kilimanjaro routes. We also have a few existing full moon hikes scheduled for 2024. Please visit our online Kilimanjaro group schedule for more details.
