Some useful tips from the guys there who both had done it numerous times:
One of the guys wears the same clothes the whole time, but takes 7 pairs of socks so has a clean pair for each day.
All can be hired from Exodus.
Hope that helps!
Friends who did it last year said definately get the sleeping mat and the dust was a big issue on the route down. I am planning to take some face masks. Got a tri climate jacket yesterday - will we need a downs jacket as well?
We have hired through Exodus:
They say the down jacket is invaluable for the evenings when it is really cold! The best thing is we don't have to pack them in the UK. We were thinking of taking face masks too.
Hi guys, hope you dont mind me butting in on your chat, im off to Kili 12 sept, lemosho and safari,never done anything like this before,great advice about the sleeping bag and matt hire,completely forgot untill i read on your forum,dust marsk and tight gaiters great advice too,11 people on my trip so far but none on forum,keep up the good chat.
Hi Shant,yes had all jabs,just got to get malaria tabs and mozzy repelant,i have hired sleeping bag and matt and bought a liner,i have all the main gear ie boots,down jacket,base layers etc,just a few odd bits to get,i have managed to get most of my gear through GoOutdoors,i go in try on what i need then go home find it on line cheaper,take the printed proof and then they knock another 10% off,i have saved a few £££'s which then i put towards other items,oh doc said i wont need rabies jab,ha unless you get bitten.im so looking forward to it now,have you experienced altitude before ?
Hey George, nice to hear from you. I'm looking forward to some company at the back. Has anyone considered taking a course of Gingko Biloba. Although there is no concrete evidence that it helps with altitude sickness there are reports that it could, if nothing else it improves circulation so could help with the cold, especially hands and feet.
We are flying on a day flight with Swiss to Nairobi on the 22nd and joining everyone else on the flight form Nairobi to Kilimanjaro. Am looking forward to meeting everyone then. Marion
