The amount of time it takes to plan your Kilimanjaro climb is mostly determined by how long it takes you to prepare everything and obtain the necessary equipment. It also depends on how much study you do before your trip and how much climbing experience you have. Tour companies are frequently quick to react to requests, and depending on the availability of guides, they may be able to plan your climb in as little as a few days. Some climbers prefer to plan their journey and conduct the necessary study over a period of six months or more. Others are more impulsive, requiring only a few days to plan their trip.
