Mountain Safety

The main considerations for safety are Acute Mountain Sickness, dehydration, overuse injuries, and hypothermia. Energy plays a big role in all of these considerations. Managing energy is crucial for any activity. The main considerations for managing energy are food intake, liquid intake, proper sleep, and pace. Kilimanjaro Bliss guides and staff help you manage all of these to maximize your chances of summitting. 

The gear you have also plays a role in safety because what you bring assists with energy management. We also help you properly prepare for climbing Kilimanjaro by giving you advice on what and how much to bring. Being in incredible physical shape is not essential, but being in reasonably good shape by being regularly active, even a little bit, is essential. We also help you with how to train for your climb.
