Acclimation to Mount Kilimanjaro


Aug 09 2023


All Day

Acclimation to Mount Kilimanjaro is designed to help you adapt gradually to the mountain climate and changing difficulty climbing mountains. Our program is carefully crafted to acclimate hikers to the rigorous high-altitude hiking, observing safety, and exhilarating ascent to Mount Kenya and Kilimanjaro. With a team of seasoned mountaineers and expert guides, we are committed to providing you with an adventure and experience. You will undertake a series of progressive hikes strategically planned to help your body adjust gradually to the reduced oxygen levels at higher altitudes, minimizing the risk and impact of altitude sickness. The Hikers Arena team is passionate about mountaineering and has been on the mountains sufficiently before. We will be listening and observing you to bring the best results out of you. We prioritize every hiker’s well-being and are safety-sensitive, providing first-aid support and constant monitoring to ensure a secure and worthy experience.

This program will be our Fall Calendar’s program and will elevate you to Mount Kenya and Kilimanjaro, offered separately in a similar schedule beginning on September 16, 2023, and ending on December 29, 2023. Book today. Our team is ready to walk you to the mountains. We welcome you to the arena.

✅Stock the rest of the hiking gear slowly. By the arrival of the event, you will have all the necessary hiking gear.

✅Keep in touch. We are here to support you.
