Food on the Mountain
Our menus are always improving and we always have new menus being introduced accordingly and you can request any type of menu if you have special requirements, before a climb - even if you aren't a vegetarian. Just imagine having a birthday cake during the climb, even in Christmas, or New Years at the top of Kilimanjaro! Come with us to enjoy the authentic experience.
Our Company has experienced mountain chefs who prepare delicious and palatable food, especially prepared to suite your health, in order to ensure your success to any summit in any mountain in Tanzania, especially the 'Roof of Africa' - Mount Kilimanjaro.
The human body develops a tendency of losing appetite in high altitudes, thus one should force him/herself to eat and drink as much as he/she can to keep the body fit. Good food and plenty of drinking water are essential ingredients, both physically and psychologically, in order to make your climb rewarding and enjoyable. At high altitudes, drinking a lot of water is essential for your health and helps prevent altitude sicknesses to a certain extent.
Please let us know in advance if there is any special dietary request(s) i.e. vegetarian preference. We are happy to cater for all our clients needs, especially dietary requests - as food is fuel for the human body. Fruits are always added in our menus and at the highest quality, and our staff maintains the use of fresh fruits of the season.
