Some advises

Air transport:

it's not rare that the airlines loose luggages during 24 hours. That's why we advise you to organize you trip with one day spent in Arusha or Moshi just after landing. We can give you an accommodation list chose by our staff.

We also advise you, if you are a couple, to put your things in several different bags, just in case.  

Photography :

It's not possible to charge your camera during the ascent, so don't forget to bring replacement batteries. 

Trekking :

Our guides are professional, they were trained to accompany you into the ascent. You can trust them, listen to their advices, they are here to help you during all the trip. 

We advise you to drink a lot of water during the walk (2,5 liters/day), to protect yourself from the sun and do not forget to take your time.

If you have any doubts or questions, don't hesitate to appeal to your guide. 

Warning: you don't have the right to take a bag bigger than 12kg for the ascent. It will be controlled by the rangers at the entrance of the park!!
