Hiking Kilimanjaro Mountain in April

April is one of the months during this wet season which runs from March to Mid June. Being that it’s in the middle of the season, we expect by this time that the rains have intensified.

Hiking during this time is usually not recommended since the trails are muddy and wet. Sometimes it can also be less enjoyable depending on the person but it can be a great adventure for some other people.

It will although limit you on certain things like you may avoid a certain trail when it’s impassable and may miss out on photo opportunities.

The wet season if one can find a way out, is the best time for people that don’t want the crowds and want quiet and peace and tranquility while in the wild.

It’s always advised that you work with a local tour operator to help you determine the best time to travel since they are always on the grown and follow the weather developments.
