Would I need any specialist equipment (crampons etc.) to trek to the summit of Kilimanjaro?

Honestly speaking, you do not need any special tools for climbing Mount Kilimanjaro. When the peak is covered with snow, crampons may be required.

These, as well as hiking poles, quality sleeping bags, and down coats for hire, will be provided by reputable operators. Here is a link to our Kilimanjaro packing list!
