Climb Kilimanjaro sample meal menu

An army marches on its stomach up Kilimanjaro.

For each group on Kilimanjaro a dedicated cook will be part of your logistical team and all cooking and eating utensils are provided.

Much thought goes into providing each client with a healthy and nutritious menu that has been carefully planned to increase ones chances of reaching the summit.

The balance between proteins and carbohydrates in the menu tilts towards carbohydrates as one ascends since carbohydrates are a more efficiently metabolized fuel at altitude.

Below you will find a sample menu and vegetarian/vegan/gluten free variations on the menu can be arranged.

Please do inform us in advance of any special dietary requirements and understand that food products or brands found in your own country may not be available in Tanzania.

It is however imperative to also communicate with your guide when being briefed on your arrival of these dietary specifications in order that any changes to the menu be made before you depart for the mountain.
