Where do you sleep on Kilimanjaro?
What night-time gear must I pack?
At Follow Alice we provide you with a four-season sleeping bag that can keep you warm during the cold nights on Kilimanjaro.
A thermal sleeping mat is important for keeping you warm and comfortable at night.
If you stuff your down jacket in a pillow case, you have a beautifully soft pillow for night-time!
We have down jackets perfectly suited for the harsh conditions of Kilimanjaro that our climbers can rent for $40.
To keep yourself from fumbling around camp and tripping over guy ropes, ensure you bring a head torch on the trek.
