Stunning views of glaciers glittering in the moonlight, the landscape naturally illuminated as you trek and no great need of your headlamps; this is the magic of attempting the summit of Kilimanjaro during a full moon night

To summit on a full moon, you will want to start a 6-day trek 4 days before the full moon (3 days before if doing a 5-day trek).
