When joining a Kilimanjaro group climb, can I go my own pace?

Please keep in mind that if you join an open group to climb Kilimanjaro, you will have to modify your walking speed to that of the others, which is usually the slowest person in the group. It’s fairly unusual for group members to become frustrated as a result of this. Climbers who are quicker might want to move ahead and take fewer rests, but those who are slower may feel forced to walk faster. When scheduling a group trek, keep in mind that you’ll have to accommodate to the group’s pace and demands. Furthermore, you will not be allowed to make spontaneous changes to your schedule (unless absolutely necessary), such as shortening your ascent by a day if you believe you can go quicker.
