Do I have to be super fit for this climb?

No, but the fitter you are the better. Kilimanjaro is one of the only mountains of this caliber that can be conquered without being an experienced mountain climber or trekker. 

It goes without saying however that you should be healthy and fit in order to master the 4 – 6 hour daily hikes as well as the 12 – 14 hour hike on the night of the summit attempt.

Please note: being fit does not guarantee that you will make it to the top… it all has to do with how well your body adapts to the high altitude. Endurance and a strong willpower is also needed

Private Expeditions possible from 2 climbers on your preferred departure date.
