While on your Kilimanjaro climb, if you feel mountain sickness or dizziness, descend immediately and seek medical attention. Allow plenty of time for the body to acclimatize by descending slowly. If you have heart or lung problems, do not attempt to climb the mountain any further at all. If you are attempting to reach the summit, you should be in good physical condition. Do not push yourself to go on if your body is exhausted.
Children 10 years or younger are not allowed to climb the mountain.

The Volcanoes area is located at an altitude of over 2,400 meters above sea level. It is extremely chilly in the early mornings and evenings – warm clothing is therefore necessary. While trekking, it can rain unexpectedly – it is necessary therefore to have:
Water-proof clothing (jacket, with hood + trousers)
Water-proof Zip-Lock bags for Cameras/Film/Passports/Money, e.t.c.
Hand Gloves (warm and water-proof), to keep hands off from rain and dripping vegetation; as well as protect from stinging nettles
Hiking boots – with good mud-grip are most appropriate (shoes/boots of clothing material will certainly become wet and uncomfortable
Gaiters – to protect your trek trouser legs and boots against mud/wetness
Sunglasses are not necessary during the trek
Any valuables (carried on the person and not necessary during the trek), may be entrusted with your driver-guide for safe-keeping for the duration of the trek
