You’ll be climbing the highest peak in Africa—the Kilimanjaro Food that fuels you is an essential ingredient in your summit success. What is important for your meals on the climb? First, the food is nutritious. Kilimanjaro Meals should be high in calories with the proper balance of complex carbohydrates, protein, and the right kind of fats to help sustain your increased level of exertion. We’ve designed our menus to include the right nutrition to keep you going on the climb, with three good meals a day, plus tasty trail snacks—the simple sugars in this help provide a boost of energy to keep you going.
Fresh produce is washed in an all-purpose sterilizer used for fresh food products as this is the best and most effective way to ensure that bacteria is removed for safe consumption. As a result, we are able to safely serve salad and uncooked vegetables on the mountain for a refreshing boost of fibber and nutrients.
We have a separate dining tent with food available upon request at any time. Following are some sample menu items offered during meals while on the Kilimanjaro Climb:


  • Breakfast is usually porridge followed by sausage and eggs, toast and marmalade or jams and hot drinks such as tea, coffee or chocolate. Climbers are asked to communicate with the guide as regards their appetites ( or small requests for special meals) or we will tend to err on the side of caution in providing much more food than necessary.

Snacks On The Trail:

A trail mix of roasted cashews, peanuts, chocolate, and raisins. We also offer sugary sweets, which add much needed energy boosts at higher altitudes. We dry our own fruit (pineapple, mango, and banana), which is a perfect light-weight nutritional and sweet trail snack. Our homemade granola and sun-dried tomatoes are also real favourites.

Picnic Lunch:

This is set up along the trail midway through the day’s hike. Tea, coffee, hot chocolate, sandwiches, soup, guacamole, peppers, tomatoes, almond date bars, nuts, fruit, sun-dried tomatoes, and cheese.


variety of different soups with baked bread, fresh tilapia with chips, peas with butter and mint, avocado tomato salad, apple pie and cream. At higher altitudes, we eat more starch based food that is easier to digest, including pasta with garlic bread, spaghetti Bolognese, cauliflower, carrots, brownies, and fruit cake. After the climb, we enjoy a sumptuous celebratory meal brought in fresh from our Arusha headquarters (think warm chocolate cake)!
