The following packing list has proven itself during our numerous journeys. But it is only meant as a guideline and shall help you while packing. Don't pack more than 15 kg. (Then you will have more space for souvenirs when returning!)
Please pay attention to the fact that clothes and equipment shall be hard-wearing and in dark colours. Bright colours are not only unfavourable for animal watching but the dust from the African bush is likely to make white colours look like grey. Dark green, brown and khaki coloured clothes are ideal. On your way you will also have the possibility to wash several clothes.
Our recommendation for your Kilimanjaro trekking:
Things we do not use for the Kilimanjaro climb:
Photography and filming: Please have in mind that you experience Africa in the most intensive way when not always seeing through your camera. But of course your own pictures are a wonderful memory which you will watch over and over again through the years.
Compact digital camera
If you want to take a compact digital camera with you have made a good choice. The small companion is always ready and at hand. It is well suitable or breathtaking landscape pictures in the African bush, sunsets and animal photos. Our recommendation: Take at least another battery for replacement. You should also think of enough memory capacity. In the camps and lodges you have the possibility to recharge the batteries.
Digital reflex camera
You are an ambitious photographer? You want to photograph animals and birds from close distance) Then the digital reflex camera is the right choice. Besides a better quality you have the possibility to compose incredible pictures. Our recommendation: ISO 200 films are suitable for fast shoots in tele mode. A few ISO 400 / 800 films are great for pictures during twilight.
If you want to take your video camera, please remember to bring lots of additional batteries. Also carry enough tape with you. It's no problem to bring some empty tapes back home with you. But you will be angry when you realise that you have no tape left - just when it's getting especially interesting.
