Health information

The ascent of Kilimanjaro is a strenuous adventure and should not be undertaken if you have any health conditions which may put you at risk. You are strongly advised to consult your physician for a thorough medical check-up and clearance before attempting the mountain.

If you are over 50 years old, talk to your doctor about doing a stress EKG. Should you require any medication whatsoever, you must provide your own and be able to administer it yourself. Medical supplies in Tanzania are not reliable or guaranteed.

Talk to your doctor about the following:

  • Vaccinations
    Hepatitis A
    Hepatitis B
    Typhoid
    Yellow Fever
    Tetanus
    Polio
    MMR (Measles, Mumps, Rubella)
  • Malaria pills
  • Altitude sickness (diamox pills)
  • Prescriptions you are currently taking
  • EKG testing 

In addition, many people will experience the effects of high altitude. Prepare yourself by reading more about altitude sickness.

It is strongly recommended to have a travel insurance and to additionally consider a membership with the AMREF Flying Doctors.
