Trekking Mount Kilimanjaro is an amazing experience, and anyone in good health, with a reasonable degree of physical conditioning and a determined attitude can make it to the top (Uhuru Peak). No climbing skills are required. Even the most challenging portions are still a hike (a steep hike, but a hike nonetheless.) No ropes or technical gear are involved.

Is Gamow Bag Necessary on Mount Kilimanjaro?

The Gamow Bag is only recommended at very high altitudes such as on Everest, or staying at Crater Camp on Mount Kilimanjaro where fast and immediate descent is not feasible. But on climbing Mount Kilimanjaro it rarely takes more than an hour to find relief at lower levels except from Crater Camp, where the Gamow Bags should be standard equipment.

Kilimanjaro Gear Rental

Uhuru Smiles features an equipment collection unmatched on Mt. Kilimanjaro and camping safaris. In fact, we operated as an equipment rental shop for some years before offering our own tours.

Uhuru Smiles' standard procedure has always been to clean & disinfect all rental gear upon return. So we have not had to change our procedures due to the Corona pandemic. You can be assured that we have minimized the risk of any contamination.

If you are climbing or going on safari through Uhuru Smiles, you will not need to hire all the items, since we provide the tents, sleeping mats, oxygen cylinders & oxmeter as standard equipment. for more info, visit our Rental Gear page.
