Sleeping on Kilimanjaro-accommodation in tents or huts, Climbers will be sleeping in tents on some Kilimanjaro route or huts on Marangu route and in four-season mountain tents during the other route trek. Our Mountain Hardwear tents are warm, waterproof and big – perfectly suited for your Kilimanjaro adventure. We understand that some climbers are anxious about camping for so many days, so we aim to have them be as dry, warm and comfortable as possible.
Mountain Hardwear Trango 3 tents are built for the toughest alpine conditions. Trango 3 tents are standard issue for refined base camp shelters on mountaineering expeditions worldwide.
Each three-person sized tent will comfortably house two climbers and their gear. The interior floor space is 48 square feet, with a large vestibule, dual doors, and internal mesh pockets. The Trango 3 is a fully waterproof tent with fully taped seams and welded corners.
A 1.5 inch foam sleeping pad is provided to all climbers. These locally sourced sleeping pads are better than any commercially available sleeping pad. They are thick, warm and comfortable, even for those not used to camping. The pad is placed inside a washable cover for cleanliness.
Mountain Hardwear Lamina -30F sleeping bags are available for rent on location in Tanzania. These warm, winter synthetic sleeping bags are constructed to enhance loft and eliminate cold spots. The durable nylon shell repels water while the polyester lining wicks away moisture, keeping weary climbers dry and warm.
The Lamina is long enough to fit someone 6′ 6″ tall, weighs 5 lbs 6 oz. and is temperature rated to -30F (-34C), more than sufficient even for Kilimanjaro’s chilly nights. They are washed after every use and rented for only 10 trips before they are removed from the rental inventory.
