While packing Kilimanjaro day pack, you won’t need a huge backpack because our porters carry most of your gear from camp to camp. The only things you need to carry are those that you may need while on the trail. Here with our suggestion on what to carry on your day pack on Kilimanjaro climb

  • First aid Kit

A medium-sized day pack, about 30 to 35 liters, is recommended. Smaller capacity, such as 20 or 25 liters, may be used but it would require careful packing each and every time you add or remove something. It is more convenient to carry a larger size so you do not have to put as much thought into how you are handling things. This become a factor when you are tired or at high altitudes, which can cause brain fog.

The most important consideration is that your day pack be comfortable for long periods of time. You will carry it every day for several hours, so you do not want something that does not fit your body. For the best results, go to your local outdoor store and have a professional find a bag for you. Then test it out on your local training hikes before you come to climb Kilimanjaro.
