You’ll be climbing the highest peak in Africa—the Kilimanjaro Food that fuels you is an essential ingredient in your summit success. What is important for your meals on the climb? First, that the food is nutritious. Kilimanjaro Meals should be high in calories with the proper balance of complex carbohydrates, protein, and the right kind of fats to help sustain your increased level of exertion. We’ve designed our menus to include the right nutrition to keep you going on the climb, with three good meals a day, plus tasty trail snacks—the simple sugars in these are helpful in providing a boost of energy to keep you going.
Fresh produce is washed in an all-purpose sterilizer used for fresh food products as this is the best and most effective way to ensure that bacteria is removed for safe consumption. As a result, we are able to safely serve salad and uncooked vegetables on the mountain for a refreshing boost of fibber and nutrients.
We have a separate dining tent with food available upon request at any time. Following are some sample menu items offered during meals while on the Kilimanjaro Climb:
