What to pack when climbing Mount Kilimanjaro


Since the new year has begun and my next student loan shall be with me very soon, I thought that it's best that I start looking into purchasing some of the items I will need for my trip later on this year. If you didn't know already, then I am climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, the world's tallest free standing mountain, in August. It is all in aid of Childreach International, a charity working in lesser developed countries aiming to help children reach their full potential. If you wish to sponsor me, please click here! It is definitely going to be very challenging and I will need to have the correct gear to keep myself protected properly! I can imagine it's going to cost a bit so I better start saving. I want to start buying a bit at a time so that I don't find myself rushing around at the end, bulk buying it all. Ideally, I'd love it if a company or two could even donate some of the things needed! That would be even better!

Because there is so much need, and I was a little bored whilst procrastinating the other day, I made this handy list which covers pretty much all the must-have's that we have been told to buy. The list we are given is a little dull so I decided to make something a bit more appealing and clearer so it's easy to see what is needed. If you happen to be doing a similar trip or have a friend that is, or maybe you're thinking about it, feel free to save the image, or pin it, for that bit of an extra nudge!

Here's what is needed:

kilimanjaro, traveling, travel, hiking, trekking, walking, mountains, tanzania, africa

Just a few items then...
Looking at the list like that I realised that I have already got a few things and most will cost under £5 but it's going to be the clothes and sleeping bag that are the more expensive part. That and the sunglasses and I'm unsure whether I will need prescription ones. Hopefully I can get daily contacts before then so I can just get some normal lenses. So much to do!

As I mentioned, if you happen to know of anyone who would be willing to donate any of the items needed then please let me know so I can get in touch with them! On the other hand, if you would like to donate some money to the charity, I would absolutely love that too!

Watch out for fundraising updates!

Is your packing just as hectic when you go away? Have you been hiking before or climbed a mountain? Have you got any tips, for both climbing and fundraising?
