We are looking to climb in Jan 2020 and I was wondering about the clothes for sleeping at night in the tent. I have heard from people that if you wear layers to keep warm in your sleeping bag, you might actually be cold during the night whereas if you where a t-shirt and shorts, you will be warm while still wearing socks and protecting your head. Looking to hear your opinion/feedback. Tia
Hello Stephine , Yes January will be nice but will be snow on the kili for sure, Make sure you have nice clothes and nice tents as well, also nice food , hot tea will help you with it a lot.
Yes you will need a layers to keep you warm in your sleeping . Its depend on the route you picked as well .
example Machame route is nice but cold from day 3 at the baranco camp. and also at Barafu camp. and the coldest place is on the way to the summit as well. make sure you pick right company will make your dream comes true. we used .kilimanjarotrekkingguides 3 night. we just come back last months from climbing Kilimanjaro. Contract them and hoping you will get best prices and 200% their service was the best than anyone. new tents, every time we climbed with them.
