What are the public toilets on Mount Kilimanjaro like?

The public toilet facilities on Kilimanjaro vary depending on your location and altitude, and range from flush toilets at lower campgrounds to very primitive wooden squat ladrines. Climbers have expressed their displeasure with the level of hygiene, which varies significantly. At bigger campgrounds, public restrooms may be a short walk from your tent, which is inconvenient, especially when temps drop below freezing overnight. As a result, on the mountain, private toilet tents have grown popular.
