Mount Kilimanjaro Packing and Camera Tips
by Kathleen Lisson
In the article ‘How to Pack for Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro: Tips, Gear and Advice,’ Caryn shares the tip - "Pack one complete hiking outfit on the plane, including a long sleeve shirt, hiking pants, underwear, socks, and hiking boots."
Her other tips include bringing a camera “that is small and fits in your hip pockets of the backpack” so you will not have to “take off the daypack to take pictures,” putting hair in pig-tail braids and using your iPod on summit night.
One thing I had never thought of was the need to practice layering clothes BEFORE the trip to ensure that I won’t “get to the mountain and realize you can’t layer them. Big Uh Oh.”
