Kilimanjaro Centre For Trekking and Ecotourism (KCTE) has experienced mountain chefs who prepare delicious and tasty food to fuel your attempt for the summit. It is not uncommon for you to lose your appetite at high altitude and you should eat and drink as much possible. Good food and plenty of drinking water are essential ingredients, both physically and psychologically, to make your climb rewarding. At high altitudes, drinking a lot of water is essential for your health and helps prevent altitude sicknesses. Drink and eat as much as you can – we provide plenty of both.

Please let us know in advance if you have any special dietary request (s) e.g. vegetarian, we are happy to cater for this as well.

Our mountain cuisine normally includes the following:

  • Specialty food like dried fruit, chocolates and cheeses. We carry cooler boxes and Tupperware to keep all the food fresh throughout the trek.
